Are we ever going to see the Efficient trait get fixed for BOffs and Captains? Right now it does nothing and it's one of the reasons why I got a life time sub, to play a borg with an efficient trait....

What do you mean "it isn't working"?

LOL not quite sure what you mean by that, I'm not near a computer that has the ability to log in to check it out within the next few hours. You have definitely piqued my interest though.

Did I miss something in the patch notes over the last week or so? (feverishly starts re-reading patch notes) <-- also a little dense sometimes

Edit: that's a smiley with the question marks... it doesn't render very well with the new layout.

What I'm asking for is more specifics, because on our end, they appear to be working as they ought. The effects of Efficiency are more obvious at lower power levels, so as your power level increases, you begin to see the returns diminish.

However, it's possible there's some other issue at play here, so I'm trying to get more specific information than "it doesn't work", because that could help us find an issue if one is present.

Equipping an efficient BOff, such as the Borg preorder BOff does not provide the power bonus in anyway like it used to. For example: When on a space map, set your power levels for aux or whatever at 25 and equip the Borg BO. You will find that the power level does not increase from it's set level at all.
EDIT: This is using a human character without an efficient trait and the Borg BO.

I would imagine that if you made a new Borg character you should have additional power beyond the set level the lower the power level settings gets from 75 to 25.
EDIT: Starting a brand new Borg character shows that power set at 25 remains at 25, also when equiping the Borg BO, the power still remains at 25 as well. Not sure if it would stack but that would be good to know.


If you say that it appears to be working, I am kind of shocked. I am going to make sure I understand exactly what the trait is supposed to do and check again, but this is how I always understood it. I also haven't read others reporting the same concerns so I am somewhat worried that I may have it all wrong or something may be wrong on my end. Has the intended effects of this trait been changed from what I have explained to something else?

Also, Thank you for time your communicating with me about this.
