  • The areas past the level 50 content can be very challenging to someone with low end gear. Many, many threads on here when those areas launched about how it was unpossible to kill anything ever, and much weeping and gnashing of teeth. Its hard t…
  • thrust is turn rate. The 'free' BO type attacks can fire nonstop.. ive procced multiple overloads back to back, but you stop shooting when they fire, and its only rank 1 so its weak. I carry 1 beam with it, critdx3/over. One is enough to zap bos…
  • once every 30 min it fires a massive torp that, if your target's shields are down, does ok damage.

  • there isnt much you can do about that beyond alert it as a bug. I have a shorty character that has to jump to get the button for exchange or other such vendors/consoles because its not enabled as his height.
  • Caps are not the way to fix this. You fix it by fixing underlying game mechanics where things multiply and add etc. I mean, there is a practical cap even now, its just too high when compared to an out of the box ship (does like 2k dps?) or comp…
  • there are a bunch of non-class specific kit upgrades you can get now. Some of them might give you some damage and offense instead of the science heals/debuffs that are so common (a couple are nice to have but you need offense too). I havent look…
  • Flag ship set is a good pick, at least its 2 types of ship (scimitar and the 2 generic cruisers).
  • No one but you can pick what has the "look and feel" that you want. If you lack ships a package that gives all your toons something has merits but again, its basically the same ship which means there is virtually no diff in your characters when fl…

  • The pilot ships are a LOT of fun for me with those fancy moves that NO other ship in the game gets. The command ships are just another cruiser with not much going for them over their command seating which to be honest I found lackluster. I wanted…
  • I think I used the paratrinic until max level on several characters. You can re-run the mission to get a higher level one if you need to. Its probably the best shield out there until you get to max level in terms of easy to get/expense and quali…
  • Its not quite the hottest thing going but I love the pilot science raptor. The fancy moves are great.

  • From the sound of your testing and such alone, and going solely off that, it sounds like a bug and that the shields actually do not regen. We can't tell. What you need to do is get out of combat after killing a wave and check to see if they rege…
  • 23000 /800 = 28. 28 * 6 = 168. ... so if you stop being shot you need almost 3 min to regen those shields. If your power is too low, your regen is reduced I think; IIRC your 800 value is @ 100 power. Have you sat still for 3 min after bei…
  • the herald ship torp is like a dev joke or something. It could be uber with its high proc chance and a spread, but to get that you have to run a very weak item. It would be overwhelmingly good if made gold-XIV; the proc rate would have to be cut…
  • I voted worse. The new skill tree made science do less damage (I actually do more damage with lower aux than I do with it maxed / OSS pumped, but its less damage than it was before the nerf to aux power effects) and at the same time tactical/beam b…
  • There is a disconnect somewhere. If the engine is from 06, it should run FASTER on newer machines, even with the 64-32 bit issues it should scream right along. It ran just fine, after all, on those older, weaker machines. The lag sources are …
  • Heh, semantics strikes again. The scim isnt an escort because it turns like an aircraft carrier compared to escorts that turn like speedboats. You guys are saying that cmdr tac and 5 tac consoles makes an escort or something. Its the very defin…
  • 10k is borderline for doing the hardest content. 20k is probably the new "able to do everything in game without a massive struggle" norm. Sub 10k is either a brand new character /player or someone who just is not trying --- basic gear alone tend…
  • The roles seems awkward when it often seems like the majority of ships were designed to be stand-alone jack of all roles explorer/science/combat ships. The real flaw is trying to apply terms that were crafted to describe sailing vessels of the 16…
  • Its a combination of things. French and english do share a latin root, and some words are nearly the same or can be figured out by spelling. Commence is pretty much an english word. Its been in there a long, long time. En route is borrowed --…
  • you don't need the launchers at all. Just use the shortcut to the program. Most things like this are promotions ... you get something or other for free and they get info about you that helps their marketing department to target you and your peers…
  • you can re-use whatever rom ships you bought. You can't get a leech console on a fed rom from a kdf lowbie ship or anything like that. You can't use the faction lowbie ships until you pick a faction. But yes, if you bought a t6 scim or faeht …

  • Heh I am kdf and rom player mostly and I havent cloaked in forever. Its fun, but time you cloak and try to ambush anything (unless playing solo) its already dead.
  • craft them. Esp space weapons. Crafted weapons can be shared across characters if you have a shared bank, saving a big investment in upgrades. I did it by making mark II items and upgrading the good ones once with one purple token, if that didnt…
