Which one is more preferable? I was searching for an Overload III earlier tonight on the Exchange only to realize I've had a Target Shield Subsystems III one sitting in my list for about a year. Funny how that worked out, right?

I can sell one to buy the other, I'm fairly sure, but I'd like some opinions before I make a decision.

Beam Overload III is pretty bad ass. Id be hard pressed to turn down that tasty treat. Especially if your in a cruiser.

I'm running an Escort, but the opinion seems to be the same.

Overload 3 hands down.

With BTS you need to spec into science skills for it to work. While with BOv you just need to be spec'd into the weapons you use. Add to that, BOV = Shield down. BTS = 95% chance Shield down. It brute force over finesse.

Do not confuse the OP with this, plz... Target SubSystem shields is offered in the Tac section of attacks. The fact that Sci's have it doesn't make any difference. Spec'ing into sci skills will not augment TssS beam attack whatsoever. Plz leave it at that and save your " I got a friend that know's a friend that been in beta b4 you were born and they said......" comments for someone else. It is what it is, sci spec will have no affect on this particular attack.

Hmm. Specing into Sensors and Sensor Array will increase the effectiveness of the Beam target Subsystem powers. Has always been like that.

Yeah, it does matter. Go to the Respec on ESD and use the drop down to see which skills effect the Target skills (Target Engine, Shield, Weapons, etc).

You will see that the science powers definately DO have an effect on these skills. I'm a TAC, and I use these skills...so I know what I'm talking about.

BTsX is for SCI, BO is for tact.

I'd go with BO 3 any day.

BTS: Shields can easily be overriden by a battery, EngTeam, or transferring power to shields.
