Auxiliary to Dampeners 100% uptime
 
Like the thread say with the new revamp of power aux&dump has now uptime of 100% wich gives escort with running 2 of them 80-90 turn rate and whoping 80-90% defence bonus depends on the ship. The biger the basic turn rate the bigger the bonus.

Working as intended, Move Along, Nothing To See Here:cool:

Wait. Someone actually managed to construe this as an Escort buff?

There's not enough facepalms in the world.

Aux to Dampeners doesn't even give Defense.

Please dont post into this thread if you dont know how dynamic of the game works:P

Luckly most escorts can only take a single copy.

It gives hull resists and immunity to movement debuffs/movement stuns. That effectively replaces the need to take attack pattern omega. Allowing escorts to take more damage buffs.

Aux to Dampeners isn't as good as APO for getting out of Tractor Beams, but it is a nice poor mans version there of APO.

Quoted for truth.



Number of Escorts that can even theoretically make use of this: 3
(Aquarius, Jem'Hadar, Temporal Destroyer)
Number of Escorts that gimp themselves totally by doing so: 3
(totally giving up all your Sci slots is ... not an option)

Oh, and your math is off - Aux2Damp stacks additively with other turn rate multipliers, so the max you'd get out of this is about BoP maneuverability - at the price of getting more squishy than a BoP, too.
Oh, of course you could build a BoP on this though ... 'would totally lack firepower, but ... hell, I'm going to try this just for giggles.

Cruisers though can profit a lot from this, especially the Galaxy-X and Bortasqu' got quite a bit more interesting. Aux2Damp cruisers just got a bit more viable in general.

Exactly. I once had 2 on a BoP build and while cool for movement and minor escapes from holds the damage resist was only versus kinetic. You could make a faster more weapony vessel with bite becuse of it, if memory serves, but the setup is weaker shields stronger hull-ish and being a BoP it always burst for me anyway in PvP so I stopped.
