Star Trek Online Cheating Methods
As already mentioned, there are several ways of cheating in STO at this time and of course the most prevalent way of getting around the rules and skip some of the grind is the use of scripts in order to automatically farm energy credits, level up characters and even do endgame content, such as farming reputation marks and dilithium. – This method is most popular because it saves you a lot of time if you do not want to grind through level / rank 1 to 60 again and again when rerolling. However, there are also other ways of cheating, such as the use of exploits or hacks. Hacks are mostly used in PvP, since they do allow for teleporting, flying faster, running faster and other physical effects that may be very helpful in player versus player matches. The exploiting of game bugs is maybe the most potent way of cheating overall, since it really has no limit as to what can be achieved. The problem about the use of exploits in order to get a lot of credits, items or other resources, is that exploits are incredibly hard to find and usually get patched after the word gets out. However, if you are lucky enough to find a mob that is infinitely spawning and stuck in terrain or similar, then you may indeed be able to not only level characters to max level within hours, but also to farm incredible amouts of money or other resources. – Its always good to keep an eye open for bugs, but I would not go and actively look for them, since they are incredibly rare, especially as the game ages and gets more and more refined.
Star Trek Online Farming Bots and Automated Grinding
As in ever MMORPG on the planet, there is a lot of farming and performing of repetitive tasks involved in playing Star Trek Online and as most of us are playing MMORPGs for the endgame and do not necessarily care for the grind to get our 3+ characters to that stage, bots have become incredibly popular among MMO players. Automatic farming scripts are essentially just computer programs that will read your game memory and perform automated tasks. Bots cannot think creatively, so using them in PvP is useless, but they are pretty proficient at farming mobs on the ground or in space, farming items, selling items, grinding reputation, leveling up, questing and can even do certain endgame content. However, since computers do not have any actual skill and are guided by a simple set of rules (AI), you will need to outrank your enemies by quite a bit. It is therefore necessary that you farm areas that are lower level to an extent where you can face tank almost any mob you may encounter. – Now obviously the Science and Engineering paths are most useful here and Tacticians will level a lot slower due to the lack of sustain and tankiness. The scripts are usually made for all the factions (Starfleet, Romulans, Klingons) and some bots will even allow you to create custom paths using an integrated editor.
