Used with 3 Technician DOff (Purple is best) the use of AtB has a chance to proc an very good reduction in cool downs on all your BOff abilities.

Use twin AtB with 3 Technicians and you can keep most of your abilities on a near-constant uptime.

for example;

Chimera

TT1 APd1 CRF2 ApO3
TT1
EPTS1 AtB1
EPTA1 AtB1 (DEM2/EWP1/RSP2/EXTS2)
HE1 TSS2

Such builds take timing and pratice to work right (or a good key bind) becuase of the Aux depletion, but when they do they can be very effective.
STO is very much an Adam One culture and completely inarticulate about Adam Two.
