# 1 “Critical Severity”
01-18-2012, 09:25 AM
One thing that has never been really explained in much detail is “Critical Severity”

For example, let’s say you have two sets of dual heavy cannons.

I will use the generic term “flavor” to describe a type energy being used.

One set is rated is as +30 “Critical Severity” with a 396 energy “flavor” damage output.

The other one is rated as +70 “Critical Severity” with a 388 energy “flavor” damage output.

At first glance it would seem better to have the set the 396 energy damage output, verses the 388 energy damage output.

However with the +70 “Critical Severity” 388 energy damage output set, would you not in fact be delivering a greater punch despite a reduced damage output?

Simply put more killing that comes from less energy damage? Am I correct?
