I just took my 2 purple EPTX doffs out of mothballs and tested. Still get crap too often to be useful IMO.

Maybe 3 is the charm? lol.

2x is like 81%, 3x is like 91%. So it depends if that 10% is worth one doff slot. It isn't for me.

We know more passives are coming, regardless of anything going on with EPtX.

And oh yeah... the power cores are coming too, we all know sooner rather than later they'll have procs on top of set bonuses....

Not that it really matters though, how much pug PvP will exist post LoR is up in the air. And who wants to run premades? These days you can still get the odd interesting non ROFLSTOMP pug match, after LoR... lets jsut hope for the best I guess. Remember, its not whether something is actually OP, its about how the average players perceive. And if they perceive PvP is dominated by battlecloaking roms with fed ship stats they won't see the point of pugging at all.

Hawk did say that down the line they would like to make the Emergency Power abilities more high-impact/long-cooldown to make their use a real choice.

With his acceptance that disrupting the current usage patterns would do more harm than good, and Borticus' post that makes clear the devs' awareness that there are too few power choices at Ensign level for Engineering and Tactical, I think that any such changes would come as part of a wider set of revisions of Bridge Officer and Captain abilities.

That's unlikely to ever happen. It'd require a complete rebalance of NPCs in the game. In turn this would necessitate that most dreaded of evil monsters, the bane of Cryptic bean counters everywhere.... spending resources in something that won't directly make a buck!

So I just tested my vesta with epts + epte and at min eng power with one blue turnrate I can get it to a solid 32 turnrate. Yea gonna be really hard to use anything but that setup now.

But with that though whats the top end JHAS turn now? 4 rcs a tacyo and omega going?
Does it spin in its own length now.

There was a post from bran that he would check if it was a typo or not before updating the notes...

...there's been no update of the notes.
