Reman Set 2 Piece Bonus (+particle generators).... completely useless?
 
I was experimenting with some builds today in preparation for hitting T3 of the romulan rep system, and I discovered that the 2 piece bonus from the reman set doesn't affect plasma damage over time... in the slightest.

If I'm not running eject warp plasma, is there any point in speccing for this skill?

I mean, I know the skill says it boosts particle effects, like plasma... but it doesn't, so wtf does the set grant a boost to it?

The 2 set bonues should not boost plasma weapon damage. Particle gens have nothing to do with plasma weapons. Particle gens are only for plasma based skills and consoles.

I don't mean like, the damage they deal when they hit. I mean the damage over time proc, which is a particle effect effectively identical to the eject warp plasma damage over time proc.

I agree - there seems to be some confusion as to whether ot not Particle Gens buff the proc damage. Could someone (Dev/Programmer) pipe in real quick and say "yay" or "nay"? Thanks!

Particle generators does NOT boost the damage from plasma's dot.

It used to. Now it doesn't. The 2 piece set bonus is just out of date and hence useless. Like so many effects/bonuses in this game.

This is false, a purple mk xi particle generator console adds around 40 DoT damage for ewp3 on my ewp fleet k'tinga build. (I run 3 particle gen consoles and max particle gen skills, with ApA I can deal 1042.1 dot per proc with ewp3, and crits for around 1800)

To give an idea how much that is, an ewp on the borg queen's diamond on elite takes out between 10% - 14% of its HP for each ewp3

some confusion going on here...some people i think are talking about the DoT proc from plasma beams/cannons, some about EWP's plasma dot.

Like I said in other thread:

Plasma DOT is boosted by:

Particle generators
Ambiplasma envelope console
Plasma infuser console

And like I said before, plasma energy (and torpedo/mine) weapons inflect a plasma DOT which is not affected by particle generators.
