cutting beam and space skills
I am using a respec chip to redo my space skills....I have a assault cruiser with all antiproton beams and the borg cutting beam...I was wondering if any specific space skills directly effect the cutting beam?? thx in advance

well..attack patterns affect it like they affect all weapons...but beam/torpedo/cannon skills wont have any affect on it.

ist a kinetic damage specing kinetic damage skills would help.

has anyone tested the subsystem targeting abilities with the KCB? that would be nice for vesta owners, if those skills can work with the cutting beam.

subsytem targeting is for directed energy weapons only apparently (single regular beams or dual beams)

that's a shame. thx for the answer btw.

Dual Beams work with subsystems targeting? I was looking at the skill last night and thought that it's mention of "beam arrays" meant that the skill only worked with arrays. If it works for dual beams that would be great. Thanks.

lol he needed to know something simple

Energy weapon training(s) increases the cutting beams damage any energy based damage skills will raise it.

There ya go, good luck

oh and know, skill manipulates do not work on the kcb so no sub system targewtting and no Befaw and NO BEAM O

the cutting beam sound to be useful as direct hall damage while is my have limited ways to increase the damage skill of the cutting beam. any thing that bypasses shields to do direct hall damage has uses. i will not know til i get the cutting beam for my self
