Advanced Jem'Hadar Hanger Pet... any good?
 
Curious, are the advanced jem'hadar hanger pets you buy in the dil store any good? Unfortunately I have not been lucky in acquiring the jem attack ship via lock box, and have pretty much given up on that. I've heard that if you have that ship, you get access to the better hanger pets. So are the advanced ones any good, or worth the dil they cost? Im currently using the ultra rare scorpion hanger pets that you get via the rep system. thx for your feedback!

Depends what you want. They have Directed Energy Mod, so they theoreticaly should do better in PvP where shields are king. Some extra hull damage.

However, even the Advanced fighters dont have a torpedo. In STF's, where everything is just a floating hull, they clearly suffer. Even standard fighters with torps to better.

If you already have the Ultra Rare Scorpions, don't give them up for almost anything. They're the most powerful fighters, and the plasma burn gives them significant bleedthrough as well. A few of the other hangars could be useful for their own special abilities, but if you just want a damage booster Elite Scorpions are the way to go (at least until we get Elite versions of the other hangars through fleet starbases).

The torpedo spam from regular fighters has just as much (negligible) shield bleed as the Jem fighters. Since DEM applies its bonus damage on each hit, it's only worth something when you have a lot of hits, e.g. cannons on rapid fire. The fighters have a pulse cannon, firing one single shot with very low rate of fire. If you want shield-penetrating damage from your pets, Scorpions put their target into a permanent state of being on fire. It stacks quickly.

Jem fighters are quite literally pointless in both PVE and PVP.

Which is weird because the NPC Jem fighters have a standard cannon, quantum torpedo, and rapid fire. That would have been fine. Then add a turret and DEM for the advanced version.

Elite Scorpions are better than any of the Jem'Hadar pets (fighters or attack ships) by a non-trivial amount.

You guys don't think the 32,000 hull point don't give the Jem Fighter an advantage?

Jem'hadar fighters are irrelevant because they do no appreciable damage.

Jem'hadar attack ships are irrelevant because who the heck has a Bug and a Dreadnaught on the same character.

Elite scorpion fighters are relevant because they do damage and they're reasonably accessible.
