Nice blog, very useful, especially to any newer players.

But where are the LoR blogs? There hasn't been one all week so far.

It's a great site. The skill planner has come a long way - it's an awesome tool. The speed at which he keeps it up to date - adds features - yes, definitely something to be commended.

9 in Driver Coils though?

That's 9k SP that can be better spent...anywhere...on any build. Outside of somebody that's leveling, is poor, and hates travel times - something that they'll regret later when they respec out of it...or...outside of somebody that's a Tour ***** - it's probably the worst skill on the list. It definitely needs some love to be competitive in the least with any skill on their - space or any ground career...

Atillo's planner's is one of the top player driven resources available to any STO player.

A completely invaluable tool.


Also, it should be accompanied by this page which is also an invaluable resource (and also regularly updated).



Well done Atillo, please keep up the good work. If you ever decide to leap into PvP, please do not put skill ranks in Driver Coils.

# 10 Guest Blog: Skill Planner

I tried to post on the blog but perhaps i was too long winded. Ill put it here instead. Basically im very thankful to players like Attilio, Hilbert, SpiderMitch, etc... that put such time and effort into the little extras that add to the game as a whole and also to the game people for recognizing their contributions.


This is one of the most useful and pleasing blogs I have read. There are several excellent contributions to the game from talented, dedicated players but Attilio?s are second to none. His web presence keeps growing in both quantity and quality and helps countless players enjoy STO by simplifying the complex and elucidating the obscure. The skill planer is unparallel and has almost become a part of the game. I am very grateful for the hard work you have put in to this and it is an extremely positive reflection on cryptic that they have highlighted your accomplishment, kudos to you both. Portia popped into my mind as I read the guest blog grateful to the powers that be that they commissioned it. Thrice blest is more applicable in this case as the player community itself benefits most when the game developers put the spot light on such invaluable tools as the skill planner.
Portia: The quality of mercy is not strain'd, It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest: It blesseth him that gives and him that takes. The Merchant Of Venice Act, scene 1, 180?187
