Romulan Boffs any Good?
 
I was really excited when I saw the Romulan BOFFS in the Embassy; abilities that increase Critical Hit in space! Was going to change my whole crew to boost passive placate. But then I heard the description is not entirely right, and maybe effects only cloaking. :(

Normally I would test this out on Tribble but I can't assign Boffs there for some reason so, please,....

Does anyone know what exactly the following do: Subterfuge, Covert Operative; as well as the difference between Basic and Superior?

Changing ships should fix this problem.

It doesn't for me. Some of my old Tier 1, 2 ships have stations spots but my other, relatively, higher tier escort does not. I also can't get into the embassy since I lose my fleet when I transfer. So I was just wondering if someone has already bought the Rom Boffs and tested them out? Please?

My understanding is that Covert Operative provides a continuous boost to crit chance, while Subterfuge is only after dropping cloak.

Currently on Holodeck covert operative and superior covert operative are functioning correctly, granting you an increased crit % in space.

I have 3 romulans on my HEC now and cruise with a 17.7% crit chance before energy weapon specialization and weapon modifiers.

Finally got a decent ship to test it on in Tribble. :D

I tested 2 Covert Op Tac BOFFS on Tribble, both were slotted but I gained the +crit from only one of the boffs. Tried unslotting and then reslotting them but still only one +2.5% increase. Maybe it's a bug or I'm doing something wrong.

How are you getting 17.7% before weapon modifiers?

I have the Assimilated Module and Tachyokinetic Coverter consoles and the T2 Romulan ability. With all of that, I can get my critical hit to 14.7%. My fleetmate with similar specs as me, gets 16.4% with a Zero-Point Energy Conduit added to that. I don't know how you're getting that extra 1.3%....

My fleet mate tested 3 Romulan BOFFs and he said he was able to get 16.4% with a Zero-Point Energy Conduit. I also bought 3 Romulan Tactical BOFFs and got up to 14.7%.

Were you in orbiting/combat space?

i think its due to the fact the stacking bonus has not been patched fully on Holodeck but has been on tribble so you can only get the effects from ONE BOff

Release notes on Holodeck from the 17th says Covert Operative should be working as intended...

Did they say that somewhere? That only one BOFF takes effect?
