    Unfortunately because I take large breaks between play sessions my gear is, to be honest not up to snuff. My main character, an engineer has Elite Fleet Phasers MK XII as his main weapons and I'm working on getting the Competitive set (though I might wait out the discovery set)

    Should I just be buying up/crafting all the superior tech upgrades I can or is there a more efficient way to go about doing things?

    upgrade weekends + upgrade token things (like from the phoenix box) are awesome for gear if you get some. (I think you can still get the phoenix boxes for a few more days and there's an upgrade weekend this month)

    Basically it doubles the value of any upgrade you use so they grant twice as many points per use.
    That’s why those Phoenix ones are special as they give over 100K tech points during an upgrade weekend, that’s enough to push most MkXII to top quality in one go. Rarity is a bit tricker but they are still giving double points on that too.

    Going to have to burn some dil and hope when I get home.

    I admit I have held off upgrading because I'm really bad at stockpiling resources in the game. Only about 60k dil refined and 1.5million 3rd to my main character's name.
