Mk.III modules, Loyalty Vouchers costs

Recommended Posts

I compiled this list since I found upgrading modules to Mk.III to be the biggest headache when it comes to module mark progression. One of the problems with upgrading to Mk.III is that there is little indication of which faction vouchers to use or hoard unless you own that module and have enough brain processing power to get info via mouse-hover. And trying to know which module is upgraded/made by which subfaction can be mind-boggling at times.

 

At least 1 million in-game credits were expended in this pursuit of knowledge.

 

All this information is useless, however, unless you know the answer to the following question:

 

What are Loyalty Vouchers?

Loyalty vouchers are rewards from subfaction contracts (available when you reach Rank 2), rare loot that can be found after a victory in battle, and can also be found in the Invasion game mode as trophies. Their ONLY use in-game thus far is to upgrade weapons and modules from Mk.II to Mk.III.

 

With that in mind, read onward....

 

 

Section A. Mk.III Upgrade costs (using vouchers) by Tier:

 

Before I start with the list, one important thing to take note of is that voucher costs vary by tier. This has a MAJOR impact on your voucher-hoarding strategies.

 

Weapon I / II / III / IV / V - 9,000 / 30,000 / 112,500 / 225,000 / 270,000
Modules I / II/ III / IV / V - 6,000 / 20,000 / 75,000 / 150,000 / 180,000

 

 

Section B. Module faction affiliation, arranged by module type:

 

Faction names in blue are Federation subfactions, those in red are Jericho, and those in yellow are Empire.

Probably upgrading by 7-10% from mk.2 is more difficult than 3-5% to mk.4

can you add a table with a number of common ship setups and their overall cost in vouchers? 

 

 

 

Notes/Observations:

-Module slot availability is fairly consistent within individual ship ranks until Rank 11, when additional module slots stop appearing.

-The Joker, Grim, Reaper, and Phoenix are unlike other DLC/Premium ships in that they lack 1 passive slot compared to other DLC/Premium ships in their respective tiers.

-Module slots on T5 ships are consistent in number.

 

The following table assumes that a player owns at least one ship of each category indicated, has all weapon and module slots on each ship occupied, and is upgrading each module equipped on each of his or her ships to Mk.3. You won't necessarily spend as many vouchers as I've calculated here during the course of your Star Conflict career.

I hope you don't mind that i have edited your original data and sorted it by faction into this table :)

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AkfHnziUXhaqdERuVW5nampJY0IweHY1S3p5VDZGTGc&usp=sharing

 

I think that's a better way of arranging it all. Thanks.

 

After reviewing all this data, now I can safely say that Vanguard offers the most upgrades. Work for Vanguard, you sons of xxxxxxx.

One problem i've noticed is that basically all modules worth upgrading and equiping demand feds vouchers and that pisses me off (well, at least for some frigs that i fly and fighters) so basically it takes an enourmous amount of time to level a ship to full mk3 or purple because about half or more of the modules that i wanna put in it require the same type of voucher...

 

But, great job to all who worked on building that.

I personally require quite a bit of imperial loyalty as well

It doesn't really matter what loyalty it requires, i see Loyalty gaining rates pretty much the same all over factions

Yep. All my ships are green and purple. The blues just automatically become purple because I have thousands of artifacts and just slowly accrue loyalty to buy one item. It seems like every type of module I need to upgrade uses armada loyalty.

Same here dude.

 

I guess it depends a lot on what you are flying. If you fly for example, guard, fighter, int you might need all equally for the active modules. But for the passives, the ones that are used are usually a few of them, and all those need for example, vouchers with legion. Like hull strenght, almost all passives that influence that require with 1 faction. Or tackler modules requires feds vouchers. Even tho the modules overall are well distributed, the ones that are REALY used are not equally distributed.

 

Thats why i would vote blindly for a independent voucher gain. Like you gain neutral vouchers that you can spend on an faction's store, and spending a lot in some faction could cause it to diminish gradually the prices overall. Like a fusion between the old loyalty system with the voucher system, and anyone could get vouchers for everything they want, cause sometimes i would require about 180k vouchers to upgrade 2 modules, they both require armada for example, but i can barely gain enough to buy one of the modules in one day, and the rest of the time im forced to do contracts with factions i dont care just because one day in the future i might need to make a weird build that includes an weird module.

 

Some contracts are hard to achiev for some pilots. Like, i dont play guards with frequence, and theres a contract where i need to kill 2 ppl with pulsar. I mean, WHAT ARE THE ODDS and low hull interceptor will take the last hit from my pulsar?

 

Or another idiotic one that you need to kill dudes with that shield hardener active.....

 

And i havent even unlocked all contracts yet, and i bet there will be much more idiotic ones ahead.

+1 for idea.

R13-15 contracts are win 2 battles, kill 10ceptors/fighters/frigs, get 1500eff pts in one battle or 3k eff pts just like that so they are not that idiotic :)

Thanks for this great overview!

I wrote down the contracts of all factions. I didn't want to create a separate thread as this is how you get vouchers.
