Polaron proc reduces the power on it's target. Like a power drain, but you get no extra power from it. The amount drained can be improved with Flow Capacitor Skill and Consoles, thou it is a small amount.

FALSE.

Plasma does the best damage. You've got the Romulan singularity harness set that boosts plasma damage. You've also got the Romulan ultra rare consoles that boost plasma damage. You will do more damage with plasma right now than any other energy weapon.

Countered by STF Shield which have a 20% plasma resistance. wonk wonk woooonk.

pst. The Jem'hadar set gives you the same amount of bonus to polaron, and cost you no Dilithium to get.

Try using turrets on the back of the defiant instead of beam arrays. Much better DPS when facing your target when doing shoot and scoot strafing runs that the defiant excels at while dropping your mines as you fly past the target for your next run.

In PvE there really isnt a "best". But rather just your preference. I use Phasers, Anti-proton, Polaron, Plasma and Polarized Disruptor cannons on my various ships. For ground on my Klinks I still use the KHG with my old Borg (pre rep system) Anti-proton assault rifle. On my Fed I still use the Omega set with Tetryon pulsewave. It really doesnt matter.


In PvP it depends on what role your playing and your build. Shield stripper? Use Tet. Power drain build? Use Polarons. DPS? Disruptor and Anti-proton rock face. In PvP, plasma is still the worse to use. Even with the Romulan gear plasma bonuses, most people generally have 30%+ in plasma resists BEFORE the STF shields with 20% more resist on top of that.

Only if all you care about is PvP. In PvE, Plasma do the best damage.

The Jem Hadar set does not buff polaron damage as much as the singularity harness and the Romulan science consoles buff plasma damage. Also the Jem Hadar set is garbage.
