The 35 sec isn't a cooldown it a count down. You have 35 sec to use the buff. To then use the Torps, you must be facing the target, torps only have a 90 deg arc so that 45 deg either side of your Bow/Aft depending on where your launcher is.
roger all the above. im using it for an alpha strike, always facing forward. like i said, the moment i hit the skill all of my torpedos go on cooldown, forward and aft and i cant use them until the 55 second cooldown is over.
well, i have a forward plasma, and a photon aft. both go on cooldown the moment the skill is initialized.
As pblmchld said, this sounds like a count down not a cool down. This is the time you have to fire a torpedo from one of those launchers before it no longer recives the buff.
After one of those launchers fires the one that did should start its cool down but the count down on the other should disapear and it should be ready to fire normaly. Assuming it isnt still on cool down from a previus strike, in which case it will revert to displaying its cool down number.
If this dosnt sound like what is happening to you then as others have said you must be buged and should report the issue.
