    Right now we have this Event going on, Breach. I see people saying they run it 10, 12, 15 times a day. Other than the raw materials, what's the benefit? There's no Rep reward beyond the first run, so why do it? Just for the easy R&D boxes?

    Well, you get your choice of marks for every run. Therefore, it is an easy way to grind your Reps on different alts.

    Except for Gamma Marks which are the ones I want — of course.

    But you could do that rotating the TFOs. So it's just a basic reward, there's no real benefit from repeating. That's all I wanted to know.

    Thank you, sir.

    When people talk about doing this, typically it's not with the same character. So someone running it 10 times may well be doing it on 10 different characters each day. While it's time consuming, it racks up quite a lot marks and dilithium by the time they've finished the event and unlocked the main rewards.

    Yeah i'd imagine this is the big draw for those running it lots of times on multiple toons.
    If you have 10 toons that's 500,000 Dil which is a fair chunk of a new T6 ship, or a lot of Phoenix upgrades, whatever you fancy.

    It's not quite as farm friendly as the CCA even was as it's a bit longer but it is still easy money if you have the time.
