Auxillary To Battery Shared Cool Down
 
Please Devs, remove the shared cool down with the emergency power to shields. So many of the sheld skills seem to share with other things. Can't use Science team instead as that shares with tactical teams and engineering teams.

Thanks

Yeah, shared with "Emergency powers" is ultimately why I ditched the battery.

That and the duration was too low to bother with... the only REAL use was in reducing cooldowns and that takes a lot of work/expense to get decent.

Can't forget the loss of Aux power. Can't heal yourself or allies with 5 Aux. Heck, you can actually shut your Aux down if you run it at the same time your power levels are raised (like with EPS Power Transfer or the MACO shield) and the power levels drop.

Seems unfair to make 1 Aux2--- skill do this when the other 2 don't drop Aux power.

Engineering Team, science Team, and Power to shields heal just fine without Aux. If you're planning on draining aux you just need to be very aware of the timing, or use other skills.

Then again, Aux to Battery only lasts a few seconds, so not really that big a deal (and a reason NOT to use the skill, actually... as a power-increase, less useful than an Energy Siphon)
