Andoria Kumari Phaser vs Tetryon
 
I am thinking about getting the Kumari. I usually stick to the predefined orientation, ie if there is a special phaser set bonus or weapon i go pahser build, if plasma bonus i get plasma torpedoes. Its not always the best choice, but I like it that way.

The Kumari has special phaser consoles and and a tetryon console, so I really dont know Phaser or Tetryon. Another thing is that the phaser cannon shots are blue. Do the Andorians use blue phasers or maybe phased tetryon?!

Blue phaser. Phaser consoles went up:D

Andorian wing cannons and Andorian Phasers are pure phasers. they are the same as normal phasers just blue.

as vesolc said, thats why the price of phaser consoles has gone up by 5 mil in the past 24 hours.

the science console is Tachyon, not tetryon.

i use tetryon but in order to truly utilize the andorian ship you must be on phaser. the wing cannon weapons, which 2/3 of the consoles use are phaser damage. so using any type other than phaser will result in you not giving any bonus to the andorian weapons.

additionally the andorian phasers only go up to mk xi 11, and not 12, so you lose a bit there, unless they have some bonus proc or damage ability.

Thanks!

I accidently read Tetryon, partly because that special item lowers shields. Blue phasers ... jeez ... I really thought they might go for Tetryon this time.

yeah they're making it pretty painfully obvious that they want all feds on phaser only vesta's bonus was phaser, now this ship pretty much forces you to use phaser if you want to use the cannon/consoles.

Wouldn't be bad if the prices for phaser consoles weren't 2-3x the prices of every other energy type.

If i could make the cannon/consoles the same type as my weapon consoles i would gladly pay $50, hell $75 for this ship, but forcing it to be phaser to use any of the bonuses really makes me want to pass.

I thought the dilithium store versions were going to be mk12

I won't be buying it until they decide wether to take the nerf hammer to those frontal weapons or not

Go blue with Kumari all the way. Blue phasers, blue captain, soon to come - blue phaser ground weapons! :D

I'm happy I stocked up on 9 purple phaser consoles... just in time for the Kumari's. :)

neok182 02-20-2013 12:21 PM

@mustafa: nope, dev blog, and dev posts here and on twitter all say the same. MK XI with [Acc]x2[Dmg]

http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...21#post8188721

So right off the bat, andorian phasers are a downgrade to regular mk xii and especially fleet mk xii.

@shar: yeah i grabbed 4 before the price went insane.

Honestly, unless you run all phasers, the consoles and cannons are useless, so just buy based off the boff setup and load up your current weapons.

question: will the Phaser Quad Cannons off of the C-Store [Tactical Escort Refit] work on the Andorian Escort? I imagine that they will, but I just want to check to make sure that they do. And if they do, would it be worth using them in conjunction with other Phaser weaponry on this ship?
