    I was hoping that someone could tell me the difference between a XYZ V mod and an XYZ V Expert mod? Is it based on different plans? Materials? Thanks.

    Not much of one. In the ways of cr, there is no difference, and there is little to no advantage in comparison to the regular v mods.

    when you see the stats on the expert plans, sometimes i wonder , why was the ordinary v plans made?
    the difreence between the v and the expert v are clear... and the use the same amount of exos? well.... soe logic i guess
    and the v plans imo pales in comparison to the expert v plans

    Newest business venture for DCUO players - crafting expert mods and charging for the service.

    Guaranteed easy in-game cash / exobits.

    Not much of a difference? Lol right....

    I havent checked in a week or so but when I saw some vit/prec expert mods the vit was 21 and precision was 36? I think. Regular T5 vit/prec mod is 16 vit and 28 precision. That would be a pretty good difference.

    Vit T5 is 23 and T5e vit is 30 ...again a pretty good difference.

    The difference between resto V expert and resto V is greater than the difference between resto IV and resto V.

    Resto/Health V expert = 49 resto + 95 health
    Resto V = 47 resto

    ...all for the same 15 exobyte cost...

    Currently I'm modded Vit 5 in all yellows, Vit + Dom 5 in blue, Vit + Precision in reds. Going Expert on all those, and swapping the straight vit 5, for vit + something else (precision, or power, or health)... would give a pretty decent stats boost on what I decided to concentrate on, for the loss of a whole 4 vit (I'd lose 12 off the yellows, but gain 8 from the blues/reds).

    That's a decent difference.

    Anyone have a link on how to make V Expert Mods? Been collecting Level V Equiptment and Focusing lense.

    Also, do you need a level V Kit to remove the Mod once its in placeor can you use another level?

    You make them the same way you make any other mod

    Are you kidding me?

    Resto V = 47 resto
    Resto V expert = 69 resto
    Vit V = 23 vit
    Vit expert = 30 vit

    V Expert mods have a huge advantage over regular v mods

    Expert mods are worth it.

    I probably would not buy them though from the broker. They are being monopolized right now, so you'll be paying far more than they are worth doing that.

    Your best bet is to either locate a crafter in your league, or locate a crafter and offer a tip. You should probably make that tip pretty generous, my going rate is giving all supplies + 4 exobit stacks as tip per mod.

    It will get easier to get these mods as more plans find their way into the game.

    It may look like that, but the boost is not much when you are in battle.
  14. Gokaigerbay Well-Known Member

    lol.
    right. cause it doesn't mean anything that an Expert mod has literally 50%~ more stats than a normal V mod. 47 vs 69.
    Same jump as a Resto BETA mod to a Resto IV.

    That was a very insipid answer and here is why.

    1. I make a level 1-5 or I-V mod with first a Plan I can either find or purchase and the salvaged parts.
    2. I have looked Here and searched the Researcher and the LN bot as well as looked into the Auction booth to find -any- expert plans.
    3. Since the normal way to make a Modification is not the same way as making an Expert one, I suggest you 1+ somewhere else or actually try to answer the question.

    There was also a 2nd part to that question you also overlooked as well.
  16. MetalMario Well-Known Member

    He answered your first question perfectly. You make the mod exactly the same as you would any other. The cost is exactly the same as the V mods, but you need the expert V plans which drop (sometimes) from the final bosses of the raids. It's literally the exact same process as any other mod.

    As for your second question, you can use any recovery kit to take the mods out, but I personally would use the exceptional or level V since you'll get the most exobytes back that way.
  17. Captain Spire Well-Known Member


    Ah! But he failed to mention you get all that with MoR and need to be in the T5 range. All is not -how one would normally- get it is it?
    Just found that out in game.
  18. Wizz Tron Well-Known Member

    How did I fail to mention something you didn't ask about?
    You asked how do you make V mods and I said the same way you do all the other
  19. Zhouz Active Member

    All plans beyond T1 plans are drops, so expert mods are done the same way all other plans are made: its just there are so few plans out there that you didnt find any on the broker when you looked. Marks of Reality are not involved at all in the process.
  20. MercPony Well-Known Member

    V Expert just a bit of a bigger boost for same amount of materials... but more rare.

    I see why people toss them on normal T5 gear but picky me wants to save them for if I get lucky enough to get a Traces in Time piece.
