Plasma Torpedo/Mine: the Ambiplasma console increases Plasma projectile damage.

Simple enough so far...enter the Plasma-Disruptor Hybrid.
Per STOwiki, you want a Disruptor Induction Coil for the Disruptor energy damage. If you want to buff the Plasma DoT damage - you want a Plasma Infuser.
Well, both Plasma Torps and Mines can also apply a Plasma DoT. Is that Plasma DoT affected by a Plasma Infuser? Does the Ambiplasma affect both the kinetic damage and the DoT on torps/mines? Is it a case that if you're running Plasma Energy/Torps/Mines - is the Plasma DoT being affected by both Plasma Infuser and Ambiplasma consoles?
Along those lines, will the Romulan set that buffs Plasma damage also buff those Plasma DoTs? What about the KHG torp damage bonus - does that apply to the Plasma DoT from a torpedo?
Just one of those things... was wondering what you thought, knew, and all that jazz. Thanks...
it was brought to my attention the other day that the plasma disrupter's DOT was subpar compared to standard plasma weapons for some reason, that kinda makes them a non option.
Plasma Infuser buff all plasma energy damage, and that includes DOT. particle gens also buff DOT as well, at least from torps and EWP, but not on energy weapon DOT, which is inconsistent and dumb.
Ambiplasma effect kinetic damage, and the dot of plasma torps and mines. but the kinetic from plasma i find to be not that important, so i focus most on the DOT aspect and stack plamsa energy weapons, wile also using plamsa energy weapons.
the KHG set does not buff the dot, it only effects knetic damage, believe me i checked, if that buffed the dot too that would have been awesome. whats the romulna set? hows the omega plasma torp? im still in tier 2 rep, so i haven't even seen these things yet
i do know that for an all out dot focused plasma weapons build, that does actually work surprisingly well even with the stf shields, the romulan plasma weapons are great. they are plasma weapons with a disrupter proc too, and you can have any combination of 2 mods with them. keep in mind that the dam mod buffs the proc damage, and the disruptor debuff magnitude too. thats why fleet plasma weapons with 3 dam mods are actually probably the ideal for plasma weapons surprisingly enough. plasma torps too.
