    Hey guys, I'm interested to know what your daily dilithium farming runs are. Mines altered a little bit partly because I'm lazy.

    Anyway so my current dil run is: [* = optional]
    1. Turn in a Dilithium VIP mining claim
    2. Turn in contraband
    3. Do the daily Academy Lore mission
    4. Instance hop the Voth Ground Battlezone (Killing the T-rexes for easy money)
    5. *Turn in excess marks and elite marks for reps I'm not using for even more dil.

    I'm always looking to improve my run and maximise my dilithium farming per day. What do you guys do in your farming runs?

    I have 10 KDF captains handing in Contraband daily (this is all they do) and most of my federation alts (and my Main KDF) sit in the Dyson ground battlezone and I usually grind 20-30 minutes a day on each of them if I get the time, otherwise its usually just the 10 KDF Smile

    Continually cycle through the Klingon and Ferengi Admiralty campaigns.
    I do the same on 9 character's, and occasionally if I find contraband, then of course I turn into Alliance Security. Yet I find my Federation crews are honest, though the odd time the KDF find a little...

    Still I mostly happy just with Admiralty.

    ι. Yes the Academy Lore is very good for 480 DIL! At different times I do those, and close to obtaining all path of 2409, on many if not all characters. Redface

    ιι. Voth Ground I try to do it at least once a week, sometimes a bit more depending on the character.

    ιιι. Still surprised no one mentioned, gamma skirmishes as needed, granting 480 DIL for each done in 1-3 minutes.
    Thumbs up Thumbs up

    ιν. I'm also sure to do the DOFF assignments: Dilithium Mining in Unstable Asteroid Cluster, Relocate Colonists to Federation Borders, as both give 250 & 500 DIL each. While I'm at it I also scan for any with 50 DIL rewards as well.

    ν. In fact several what appear to be minor or unimportant Admiralty missions, often with low requirements most SKIP, can actually often have 500 DIL as a event reward!

    Daily Endeavors and TFOs. Don't you guys love Ground Tours or swapping marks to dil? Smile
    Truth is uncomfortable most of the times. That's why you gotta face it every time.

    Yes that is also very nice option, as is Contraband for some; yet significantly more limited for the Federation, which I mostly have. So having only 2 KDF I don't spend really any time focused on it.

    Still it's nice their are various options available to everyone, depending on what everyone likes. Live Long and Prosper

    Admiralty, Mark swaps, and DOff missions were the posted reward is 50+ D lately. If I happen to be at/near ESD then Contraband gets dropped.

    Endeavors tend give a wee bit of Choice Marks so those go to whatever Rep has the most at the time. In this regard, definitely have a Mark Booster active.

    Admiralty, 50+ DOff missions. But only on one toon. I'm not a DIL factory. I refine the 8k/day plus VIP/Fleet Mine refining every other day/every day (when I think of them) and that's it. So I get about 8,500 per day.

    My typical routine:

    1. Spend all my dil and run out.

    2. Cry for a while.

    3. Remember I have zen stipend.

    4. Trade zen for dil.

    5. Spend all my dil and run out.

    6. No more zen.

    7. Cry.
