Nice blog, very useful, especially to any newer players.

But where are the LoR blogs? There hasn't been one all week so far.

eisenw0lf 04-10-2013 01:35 PM

Yes, more LoR blogs please.

Don't be rude guys the expansion isn't out for over a month, plenty of time for more blogs.

It's a great site. The skill planner has come a long way - it's an awesome tool. The speed at which he keeps it up to date - adds features - yes, definitely something to be commended.

9 in Driver Coils though?


That's 9k SP that can be better spent...anywhere...on any build. Outside of somebody that's leveling, is poor, and hates travel times - something that they'll regret later when they respec out of it...or...outside of somebody that's a Tour ***** - it's probably the worst skill on the list. It definitely needs some love to be competitive in the least with any skill on their - space or any ground career...

Atillo's planner's is one of the top player driven resources available to any STO player.

A completely invaluable tool.

Also, it should be accompanied by this page which is also an invaluable resource (and also regularly updated).

Well done Atillo, please keep up the good work. If you ever decide to leap into PvP, please do not put skill ranks in Driver Coils. :P

Nice article Attilio. It's been a while since I used your planner, but I've seen more and more people refer to it, I'll have to check it out.

This is definitely an area where new players are completely lost (I was too, took me two characters and one respec to get a hang of it).

So great you made a blog, and great to link the skill planner (nice to just wonder what ship one might get next, and what to do with it).

Also, good point by USSUltimatum, this skill points effects page has plenty uses.
