I have just been grinding away at missions forever. My standing is so close yet so far away from 8.00. And The thing that makes me the most mad is that if you fail one level 4 mission, it drags your standings down a lot. At first, I was at a 7.66, but after failing, it brought it dipped down to 7.23.
It’s basically starting over. Currently, I’m going back and doing level 3 missions and enjoying its many benefits, such as being able to kill everything ten times faster and easier. In my Drake, nothing stands in my way. Another thing is, one of my missions dropped a faction module and I was able to sell it for a nice 20 million!
I have been too lazy to loot and salvage everything so who knows what other goodies I might have missed.
