Space Warfare Specialst - [BORG] ...is that one even working?
 
...
so we were told that the STF space weapons with the [BORG] modifier have been removed because they were not working right ever, and because many Borg in the game, in particular in the STFs are not correctly tagged as Borg NPCs.


sooo...?

that Tholian Warfare Specialist out of the Tholian Lock Box... that i bought 10 times for my 10 chars.... wich then later was available as random generated DOff from the Starbase Stores...

is that DOff even functioning for STFs or does it have the same problem and i should slot in something else in?


can maybe one of the DPS number counters out there test this out?

I would not be surprised whatsoever if it were working like borg weapons, but remember there are only a select few STF ships that have problems with this stuff so it's not like they're useless. I think it's just the assimilated klingon ships that have issues with the weapons/probably this borg doff.

In my experience, the torps procced about 100% of the time, but the other weapons were hit/miss. I would see the proc, but not as often as 7.5% would make one believe.

That said - yeah - I wouldn't be surprised if the DoFF in question simply points to that modifier in some way...

Yup, also, iirc, assimilated Klink ships still use disruptors! :eek: Which is part of the reason the MACO shield is superior insofar as it at least ads *some* resistance to all energy types.

AS for this DoFF, perhaps there's a way we could test in a foundry mission?

I replied to this same question a few weeks ago. The space warfare specialist does indeed lend a damage bonus, but thanks to Cryptic math, the stated 10% buff actually comes out to ~2.2% I brought it up with Heretic when he was still here and he said "working as intended" so basically only take the doff if you have absolutely nothing else to slot, because it's not like you'll notice it anyway.
