Starship electro plasma will significantly improve eptx abilities. After 9 points and some points from rep gear in electro plasma, I get around ~24 with eptx1 and ~31 with eptx2.

Yeah, I do have drain when I fire my weapons. This makes my average weapon power fluctuate around 100 with 4 dhc and 3 turrets. The damage I have is more than enough to take out a target though, I'll tank people long enough until their resists are used up then alpha strike the target. Obviously this means I can't take on every target by myself with dps alone but that's fine, cuz sci/tactical debuffs exist .

With OP's 9 points in EPS, it's quite a bit more, add about 50% to the numbers you substract.

Toi'Va, Ti'vath, Toivia: Design that long overdue Tier 5 C-Store Raptor
Tae'Va, T'Vaya, To'Var: Give us Asylums for Romulans

Don't make ARC mandatory! Keep it optional only!

Don't forget to go custom for the x/15 instead of x/25.
Don't forget to add 2x BOFFs for 2x 7.5 to get the +30 for Efficiency rather than +15.
Etc, etc, etc...
Yeah, I've used that calculator before.

Though, for some reason, the calculator says I should be getting 2 more Aux power than what I'm actually getting.

Yes yes. I should have said base numbers

I did say I couldn't check the wiki though

Here's a screenshot of this.

http://i41.tinypic.com/10emoft.jpg

weapons: 123/95
shields: 125/75
engines: 89/15
auxiliary: 43/15

Previously said the auxiliary power level was 50, my bad.

Just you wait, people will be screaming for nerfs.

People already tried to have EPtS nerfed into oblivion - the backlash was significant enough that they rolled back the changes.

This was while the devs were "balancing" the EPtX abilities for this "upgrade."

And if you check live now and compare it to the patch notes you'll see that a very different system was implemented -

Now, it seems, all EPtX abilities get 30 second buffs on top of the power boost.

BOFF Efficiency still only provides +7,5. Only Captain Efficiency was doubled (included in the Efficient Captain trait and in the Borg racial trait).

It's for the spreadsheet.

Efficient gives +15 on the spreadsheet.
BOFF Efficient gives +7.5 on the spreadsheet.

To get the +30 that the game gives now, you need to select Efficient and 2x BOFF Efficient to get the +15 & +7.5 x2 for +30...

edit: Unless the spreadsheet has been updated very recently.

I am sorry, I made a typo in my previous post (corrected now). Here is the clarification:

Captain Efficiency (+Borg racial trait for Liberated Borg captains) was updated in LoR as follows: +15 -> +30 pts
BOFF Efficiency was unchanged in LoR, it still gives +7,5.
