I dont see how the
ablative generator helps for a torpedo boat. When I use the generator, its because my hull is at 40%. I press my middle mouse button and evasive/deuterium/ramming speed and
face the other direction.
Its saved my life countless times. Yet Id do anything to have it a toggle skill. I may not ever use it in pvp gameplay anymore, but atleast it works as it did in End Game.
I would make it a toggle and make it as strong as purple Ablative Armor XII (40%). It grants resistance to 4/6 energy weapons and prevents you from using them too.Torpedo boats are only viable in PvE, +1 armor console isnt going to be game breaking nor save you from invisitorps.
