Yep HY1 fires two torps, HY2 fires three.

Related question: Why do I fired 2 Torps (often) and sometimes 3 (rare) when I haven't activated T:HY? Not that I am complaining mind you... just curious.

So the projectile skill just increases the damage of each torp then?

It's like a critical hit...you have a chance to fire things more often...not only with torps but also with beams.

It's logical why it's rare to fire 3 rather than fire 2...because it doesn more dmg. I also fired 4,5,6 torps in a row but that's extremly rare but there's a chance of it to happen.

Same thing goes to skills. If you use a skill theres a chance that you can use it right away without cooldown. Had 2 HY in a row without cooldown.

This is more of a visual bug than anything else. If you check your combat logs, Its likely that while you saw 2 or 3 torps, the game only (correctly) calculated dmg from 1.

Itīs all about Lag.

It's got nothing to do with that, it's just server lag. I've fired off 20 torps before, look at the numbers and combat log, they aren't actually hitting anything.

I would like some proper figures regarding HYT as I find myself using HYT I over III...
