Plasma energy, Plasma projectiles, and Particle Generators
 
I've been reading countless threads about this topic that has since fallen by the way-side, and no conslusion so far.

Given that the new focus on plasma weapons this S7, I'd like to revive this debate again. Has anyone confirmed that particle generators indeed boosted the damage of the energy and projectile procs?

This page should help with that.

Particle generators have no impact on plasma projectiles or energy weapons. But it does boost plasma skills like Warp plasma or other plasma gas console weapons.

This is something I did not know, Thanks for this! :D

They used to effect the dot effect of plasma weapon procs. Or so I thought...

Tooltip values in Space

Plasma Torpedo Mk 11 [acc][dmg]x2
Base Skill: 54

Dot Damage: 1485.3
Add Console: +26.2
New Dot Damage: 1485.3

what the frak! I swear it used to but i guess not anymore. That is lame beyond belief and makes no logical sense when other weapon procs are effected by Sci skills. Oh well live n learn i guess.

Particle Generators boost the damage of Warp Plasma, but not plasma energy or kinetic weapons (or their procs).

On the otherhand, Plasma Infuser Tac Consoles (+XX% Plasma Energy Damage) do boost Warp Plasma.

So there is a bit of synergy there, but you're forced to use Plasma (Energy) weapons to get it.

Alright, thx guys! Gonna stick to the tried-&-true formula of antiprotons and Qs.

Now that I reaaaly think about it I think it changed back when they removed the tac console boosting sci abilities. I wonder if it was intended for plasma weapon procs to be effected by the skill, or not.
