So, I just noticed that the omega rep rewards don't include any space weapons besides a couple of novelty ones. How does one get MK XII Ap weapons now, aside from the exchange (which is ridiculously priced for APs)? I was in the process of outfitting my ship with Mk XII gear and got most of it done, but I'm still missing some turrets. I noticed that neural processors can get you mkxii gear?is that just for stuff like the Omega set etc.?

p.s.
I've never seen an antiproton weapon drop as loot anywhere. And I can't remember the last time I saw a Mk XII drop in an elite stf.

If you want Mk XII AP space weapons, you're going to have to go to the fleet shop.

Reason #9001 to get a fleet going.

Also, this brings up another question. The romulan rep system does give you MKII weapons?but they're plasma. I've been told over and over again that plasma is the only weapon type you should avoid because their proc is useless. Is this still true, or did season 7 make plasma useful? I'm wondering this because I'm seeing way more plasma ships that seem to be performing well in STFs etc.

Plasma is mostly weak in PvP, where many people are still running the STF set shields, which have a 20% Plasma damage reduction. It's only slightly weaker in PvE due to the fact that its bonus is damage over time instead of a short, sharp burst of damage like disruptor breach or AP crits can deliver (meaning that it's not as good at immediately KOing an opponent but more for wearing it down over time). However, Romulan Plasma weapons have both the enviable [Acc]x2 modifier freely available as well as providing the Disruptor Breach proc along with the Plasma Fire proc, making them better than normal Plasma weapons.

"Plasma sucks, because someone told me so, okay?" Tired, old news. Plasma has been buffed twice that I can remember for sure. The proc works just as well as any other, though differently. I use adv plasma fleet cannons on my F-TER and it's my most powerful in terms of direct damage minus the tricks of my recon Vesta. Adv fleet AP cannons work fine as well. The moral of this story is to simply pick what you like and use the hell out of it until you develop skill with it, which really makes the difference. And before you start believing what folks tell you, consider the source.

Too many people will hawk one energy type over another simply to justify what THEY use.

its useless in PvP due to everyone having shields that reduce the plasma damage and running HE to undo the DoT proc...but PvE is still really good for a cheap set of weapons.

Its possible that with a ship like the vesta that has lots of tac slots and lots of sci slots you could combine the plasma romulan sci consoles to easily available purple tac consoles and negate the stf set reduction.

Dont think we can say anything till they get the complete romulan rep tiers working and get the placeholder items out or at least updated as far as sets go. At any rate it will definitely be a barnburner of a PvE set.

Antiproton stuff is sorta hit in the head now if you dont have the borg pieces as the fleet advanced stuff isnt that great. Maybe the Elite space weps will be better.

Fleet weapons. XII advanced and elite through your local starbase. All single energy type (anti-proton etc).

And to be honest, they are better than the [Borg] versions.

I am sure it has ben mentioned already but I post again......As far as I know MK 12's only drop in STF eltes.....other then fleet vendors with equivalent levels.


Seen a few AP weapons drops in the recent weeks but most often I see tetryon and phaser drops in my experiences.
Napoleon's final defeat came at Waterloo. Must've been embarrassing. You're the f'ing emperor. You conquered all of Europe, only to lose in a place with a stupid name like Waterloo. Or Watergate, or Whitewater. Note to politicans: Stay on land.
