The amount of DPS you'll output with an XI purple vs an XII purple is negligible.

At most you'll only get a 9.5% increase in gross DPS (assuming 5 mk XII purples over 5 mk XII blues (equivalent to mk XI purples) and same weapons), but due to defense, crits, misses, and a whole ton of factors, the net DPS increase is maybe 2% tops for those 5 consoles. Which is why I am being cheap and sticking to mk XI blues, which lose me about 19% gross dps (for that same 5 console ship), but again due to those factors, I only lose out on about 5% net DPS.

So if you want that miniscule increase to maximize your effectiveness, then go for it. But if you can't be bothered to care and don't mind firing that extra shot, you're better off sticking to mk XI and mk XII blues/mk XI purples.

: ho ho! lol! than wonder wy they even bother making purple consol sound more like a ack to me but thank you for the advice i will seriously consider it:)

Well look at it this way. Your average mk XII purple tac console runs for 20-40 mil on the exchange. Your average mk XII blue tac console runs for 2-5 mil. For an increase of 1.9% in gross damage per console, a cost increase of that magnitude seems a little... obscene.

True, I bought 5 purple MK XII tetryon consoles for my Jem'hadar ship several month ago when they were dirt cheap on the exchange and in the end the actual increase in damage was so low I could not see any difference to before when I ran 5 blue MK XI consoles. I actually had to run a combat parser to see this tiny damage boost from the purples. Since then I stopped bothering getting any of these MK XII consoles.
