I got a behold on a dilemma

WaldoMagWaldoMag ✭✭✭✭✭
My 3rd account on a dilemma for a 4* crew I got a behold. I actually had a choice for someone I only had one star on . The other two were immortalized. I hope this was not a bug , but a new feature, Behold on 4* crew for dilemmas.

    Probably today's Update, then. My Voyage was returning at that time. I got two 4 🌟 straight drops.

    Wow. An improvement souly for the benefit of the players. I didn't think they had it in them. Thanks, Game Makers.

    Version 930 brought this in, it was announced two weeks ago. I guess they have just turned it on.

    Can anyone confirm if there are mixed beholds of 4 and 5* crew, or if the 5* just drop.

    Someone in our Fleet just got one. It was all 4 🌟. Maybe the 5 🌟 will do the same, hopefully.

    Ya, the 5* drop is rare. It will take a while to happen. But unless they introduce another 5* , I would think it will be mixed. But, the question will be, is it one 5* and 2 4* or the two existing 5* with a 4*. answer below.

    I've seen a screenshot showing Adm. Black, Vori Chakotay, and a random 5*.

    Thanks, so not a mixed behold. But a begold. That is neat.

    The reward distribution will be as follows:
    1% 5-star Voyage Exclusive Behold (Choice of Admiral Black, Vori Defender Chakotay, or Random 5-star from Premium Portal)
    5% 5x Legendary Replicator Fuel
    10% 4-star Premium Portal Behold
    84% 4-star Premium Portal Crew

    What a missed opportunity to get rid of one of the most hated elements of the game.

    Reminder on just how pointless rations are:

    There’s zero chance I’ll ever be able to put a dent into this.

    Post those in the engineering forum. Customer Service told me that they won't look at it unless it is there. Personally, I doubt they will even look at it there, but I suppose I might as well.

    So it turns out they put in a percentage. I highly doubt that those are the percentages from before. But maybe. In any case, there is still a 5% chance of rations. And they are still unpredictable and unavoidable. Therefore I will still not be spending any money on the game.

    Thank you, Game Makers, for the beholds. That is a fantastic idea that deserves praise. Too bad you couldn't go the extra step and remove the poison.

    A 5% chance of a turd in my sandwich is low, but it is not enough to pay for the honor of getting the sandwich, especially when the odds of the best reward is five times lower.

    Grousing about rations aside I'm tempted to do some extra long Voyages. It won't be for 5*s because the odds are low but its at least a guaranteed way to farm 4* beholds.

    My present strategy is to do 10-12H voyages and hope a Super Rare dilemma shows up. A long voyage currently might take 2 days to get one out of 5 dilemmas. Now its one out of 11 dilemmas which changes things a little.

    I make that six 2+1 beholds, where the 1 is the old crew.
    Four schematic beholds 2+1.
    Fuve chances for a 4* behold.

    Five chances for a 5* behold.

    I might also give it a go during this skirmish.

    I'm probably the only one who actually uses Replicator Rations to make Equipment, so I understand people wanting that drop to go away. Totally do not blame anyone. But, when you are power leveling a new Crew, four 5 🌟 Replicator Rations and a handful of 1 🌟/2 🌟 Schemes makes a 4 🌟 Equipment. Helpful with those things that can use a lot of lower 🌟 pieces to make, like the Security Codes from Section 31.

    How about 1 valor or 6 quantum instead of the replicator rations?

    Use schematics, for the ships that you have completed. Use experience, to keep it from maxing out. And if necessary use starbase components to keep it from maxing out. Along, with replicator rations.

    Keep in mind these items are more effective when used directly, then , turning them into replicator rations and then using the replicator rations .

    Edit: of course, turn schematics and items into rations when you hit your inventory limit. Or, use them to replicate items , to keep under the 1000 inventory limit.

    True. But they would still have to make it possible to complete Champion of the People to really shrink that list!

    Maxing out is not a problem. Building up to get close to max is my issue.

    And I do deal with the Inventory problem when it comes up by making the Replicator Rations.

    I get that most people are full of a lot of the stuff. As I said, I understand people wanting the Replicator Rations out of Voyages.

    Wait. Am I the only one who has had replicator rations mysteriously popping into existence in my inventory faster than I can use them?

    The replicator is a useful tool for some items. I used it once this morning while power levelling Sato for this event. The problem is that game gives you tonnes of fuel for it. It does not give you tonnes of credits. Fuel just accumulates perpetually. It doesn’t matter what that fuel is.

    Rations, schematics, trainers, components (both types), equipment and boosts are all items that I have vastly more of than I can reliably use. And all of that is much less useful than the 50 honour I get from cashing in a 90k pull.

    It is correct. The dilemma was "The Tools at Hand". Previously, you would just get Prakesh schematics.

    It's not a guaranteed way. It's only a 10% chance way.

    I don't understand the thinking. Is it just to create frustration when you get a straight drop of someone you have IM instead of a behold now? Because speaking from experience, that's what happened to me today, and it's making me not want to do a voyage because it felt like I often do in Gauntlet.

    Please increase those odds.

    I think I'm more excited about the schematic beholds. 4 dilemmas dropping guaranteed schematics I might need vs 5 with a 1% chance of dropping the 5* crew.

    Yes, same here. 54 5* ships 2 honor hall, one fbb reward. 51 ships left.

    I have 24 of them maxed, that's about a three quarter chance for needed schematics per behold, assuming I already have the default.

    Better chances than a premium 10 pack.
