  • you can only transfer ships that are not character bound. Event ships you grind for are char-bound. That means they want you to grind each char if each char gets that ship. So new chars have no access to the event ships until that event comes around…

  • agreed!!!! And while we're at it, add a flag to search for skills or traits in boff descriptions as well as just the names.

  • Please note you'll do less damage doing that. The ancient omni array is not the same as a crafted ultra rare. It's quite a lot less DPS overall. Then add into that upgrading to XIV, and the crafted blows the stock ancient omni out of the water buy a…
  • Either Romulan for attack patterns, or KHG for cold start. Anything else, base ENTIRELY on set bonuses. Nothing else really comes into play outside of the 2 I listed above.
  • I ran it on a handful of chars with full kobali set + console. When set up properly it'll tank almost anything. Massive hull tanking ability especially with kobali set, and the console, and then add into that the ability to shield heal nicely AND th…
  • DBBs with FAW may indeed 'tag' more targets but that doesn't mean they do more damage. DHCs may 'only' target 3 ships with CSV, but they send the entire duration of CSV hitting those targets. Fact of the matter is that FAW can often take longer to k…
  • Seems like cryptic has ulterior motives with the "create a new char" pitch. Honestly? Why not put all of this in a mission repeat event? STO is overdue for one of those. That way EXISTING chars, which need the benefits the most, can replay existing …
  • The skill is still there. You haven't been untrained. You just had the "active" skill reset to default. This will happen a lot. The skills are currently kinda buggy. Go to the boff, click the skills tab, click the RANK of the skill, space or grou…

  • Nothing you described is specific to AP. Roms with absurd critH are still going to reap great rewards with romplas or disruptor. The end result is a few % points of dps at the highest echelon. Crying that they're OP is not factual.

  • Silly mortals. You still think the CE is about giving you a reward? It's a reason to log in. Now, if they gave you the lobi exit, why would you log in every day? You wouldn't, right? That's why they haven't done it.
  • Antiprotons are the best in the game by a small lead -- when you gear them out the right way. That said, you have many options that are still quite capable, and as long as you gear toward your proper damage type with set bonuses and consoles, you sh…

  • The size of the "chunk" that tetryon can remove from shields is not fixed. It will changed based on your flow caps skill. The problem is twofold: 1) The proc chance is far too low to ever be useful, even in pre-DR times. Now that they nerfed t…
  • again, *sigh*... your petulance is borderline psychotic at this point. You are nothing but a bad troll. Not even a good one, just a bad one. I'm done with your willful ignorance.

  • Phasers are pretty useless in terms of proc. It's been nerfed heavily over the years.
  • Ap provides a minor boost with its native CrtD boost. Polarons can be helpful if they proc and drain a chunk from an enemy's weapons power bank, or shields, even. The polaron bonus does not scale. When the upgrades were unleashed, they bumped the…

  • I'll add another vote for the avenger being a good ship to run BAs on. However if you're a sci, you should probably look at ships that have more sci seating. Much of your damage could/should be coming from sci-based exotic damage. Especially if you …
  • Borg cannot adapt to the tr116b. Are you sure that's happening? This weapon bypasses all shields and like melee can't be adapted. If that is really what you saw, it is a bug. However, I wonder if you were just seeing something else they were adaptin…
