Anyone running the Elachi Lobi set and have opinions on how it'd work with the Kar'fi?

Bioneural Infusion Circuits console:
+17.2 Structural Integrity - On par with the Ship HP boost of a Positron Deflector
+17.2 Subspace Decompiler - On par with the boost given by KHG deflector
+15.2% Critical Severity - Wow, free [CrtD] (well 75% of one mod) for every weapon

This alone looks great for the Kar'fi - extra hull for more tank, extra disable (if I slot any), and a nice boost in damage with every Crit.

A Heavy Single Cannon would probably work well for the Kar'fi with it's turnrate, and the screen shots of it firing in the Dev blog looks great. 60% Crit damage on the thing

I've heard little about the torp so far, but looks like it's very slow firing (Edit: only 10 Sec normal, not horrible) and of limited utility. Anyone know if it's buffed by KHG set damage bonus (initial and/or collapse damage) and/or effected by Projectile cooldown DOffs?

[edit]The two-piece set bonus:
+7.6% Disruptor damage - a bit low compared to other set bonuses, but more damage is more damage.
+15.2 Starship Shield Systems - more shield HP, on par with a Mk X Positron Deflector

Turns out the set designed for the S'Golth escort with thin hull and high shields would work well on the Kar'fi with less-thin hull and slightly lower shields.

I can probably shake enough Lobi out of boxes for one piece at least with my EC reserves once keys go back down in price for the console at least, but I'm wondering if it'd be worthwhile to go for more pieces of the set.

That helps a fair bit, thanks! Though, it leaves me wanting the Monbosh even more, but it'd take me far too long to grind up enough for all the parts (there'd probably be another lock box out before I got everything).

The Bio Infusion Circuits Console is a big deal for Science oriented players. Subspace Decompiler is a stat used mostly on Deflectors and almost nothing else has a bonus for it. There's not even a Science Console for the stat, until this lobi console came out. The skill impacts disables. Photonic Shockwave and Viral Matrix will gain as skills, but the disables from Tricobalts will benefit too. Matter of fact, the Console is perfect for Tricobalt users. It increases critical damage and improves the disable, something Tricobalts are very good at.

Are these console Bind on Pickup or can I find them on the exchange? Looks interesting for some of my sci's indeed...

Edit: nvm, it says lobi set in the OP, so it's like the temporal stuff, I guess. Pity. I don't do Lubi.

Picked one up, but haven't used my Kar'fi with it long enough to give a good evaluation of the console. Sounds like I need to pick up Viral Matrix and give it a whirl.

Yeah, the Bioneural Infusion Circuits Lobi console is Character Bind on Pickup. The console that comes in the lockbox directly - Subspace Integration Circuit - is Bind on Equip and is tradeable. Though, for some reason it's not in a pack but just given as a bare console, so you have to search under 'All' for it.

No wonder I couldn't fine one!

I suppose the packs where because if a Klingon opened it (that just doesn't happen does it, we got garbage) he got a Fed console and the Feds get ours when they open it.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.

Was coming back to say this. Saved myself 500k by checking under consoles.

Engineering is the default when you click consoles, guess that's why it's there.
