Anyway. My starting point was a tactical escort witch dual heavy tetrion guns + quantum torp upfront, and tetrion turrets at the stern.
I decided to buy a shiny new toy, and went for a multi vector tactival escort. The first test was quite underwhelming.
Therefore my question. Those "vectors" are equipped with phaser weapons. Are they effected by phaser damage mods ?
In short: should I throw away my tetrions and switch to phasers ?
Second question: while I browsed the forums for an answer, I read that the quad laser cannons from the Sao Paolo are crap. Is this still true or should I invest in the ship in case I switch to phasers anyway ?
Thanks in advance.
The phaser consoles do affect them, but it doesn't increase your damage enough to justify switching to phaser unless you want to.
The MVAM is -very- effective, especially in Beta Command where it casts APB for you.
My suggestion, get AP weapons: the critical increases will double your dps as a tac
