Beams vs. Cannons

I agree, with you on the subsystem targeting point. I am thinking "Target Subsystems" is not that important to me, and I could be very wrong here. You can tell me if this makes sense.

Target Subsystems
- lasts 30 seconds
- has a 2 min cool-down
- to "equip" them all take four slots on the bar

Rapid Fire (w/ Polarons)
- lasts 15 sec.
- has a 30sec. cool down (Rough ratio 4:1)
- and because I am turrets w/ the high rate of fire the Polaron proc will go off once, maybe twice a single usage

The Polaron proc is 25 power drain across all subsystems, so in the time that some uses TSS I and waits for the cooldown of one of the abilities, I have used RFC I x4 times, and probably had the -25 drain go off 3-8 time across all the targets subsystems, and RFC I is one button on my bar.

I will re-test.

I agree they have some bonuses that are nice, but my goal is power drain. Now, if you see a set that help me drain faster, I am all ears.

Sir, no, sir. Though, I do understand your thinking. Reason being, I am not trying to cripple a ship with a one-button attack, rather, I am layering one attack after another, all of them pointed at the same goal - Power Draining. You can only escape "part" of the rift. I am still going to drain your shields, and then energy siphon, and then...and then...and then...

I see the wisdom in your sound and sage advice. Thought:

Scramble Sensors wont last that long (not specced for it), is there another draining ability I could use instead?



TO: ALL

Whether I agreed or disagreed with the responses, THANK YOU. I appreciate you taking the time to give me your thoughts.
