So i try to farm a bit for the R8/11 dessies but for whatever reason it seems like Neo and Bery farming i kinda a chore (and extremly boring).
From what i have heared new players recieve the parts for an dessie kinda “easy” due of faction rankups. Cus i started this game now nearly 4 years ago i already have 2 factions at R15 and 1 at R11 what is kinda “unfair”(?). During the time dessies where implemented i wasn´t around either but i can live with that cus it was my own fault in this case.
Anyways i started to consider the farming of the materials and i must say… it´s such a pain to gain the neo and bery stuff next to the stupid idea of the need for 2 internal strucs per dessie + the mats that come into play here. 320 neo ore just for an R8 dessie without of the mats you need for the other parts + the monos.
Next to this the totaly useless thing of needing an maxed R8/11 ship that produces tons and tons of “wasted” syn (1 ship with currently 2 mio now). In any case the good old RNGesus is the next insane factor that comes here into play cus even when a mission is won it doesn´t gurantees a neo/bery drop in the acording rank what can lead to 10 missions won and just 3 neo/bery drops in common.
The daily mission… well an “nice” option but only a 1 timer per day. In case of OS i tried diffrent locations/guides and stuff but due the extreme low rate of transport drones you basicly load your cargo and return to the docking base what in the end takes more time then flying PvE FS/DC.
I kinda would more enjoy the farming for those dessies if in terms of an maxed R8/11 win the 1st loot always would be an neo/bery drop instead of hoping for the drop cus then the “goal” would be foreseable when it would be reached… i mean alone for the 3 R8 dessies it needs an insane amount of 960 neo ore. R11 dessies i don´t even consider atm cus there it would be 960 bery + 600 neo (and again not considering the other needed mats for the parts).
I can understand if an dessie should be something “special” but somehow i have the feeling it would take me nearly 3 months + just to build 1 R8 dessie…
