Well as I am across all factions and careers since like day 2 of launch I use them all except tetryon anymore. dont know why I just kinda dropped the torp use so tets arent my bag, My AP BFAW build is my top and mad DPS off an Oddy with survivability appeals to me.
I use all types on my Reman and Fed, except phasers to be honest and i have to say the best for PVE, by a country mile, is Romulan plasma. Although i am referring mainly to dual beams and beam arrays, as i don't use cannons except on my arkif. For 2 reasons:
1) Nothing else can even come close to offset the fact that the exp Rom plasma array doesnt drain power with anything.
2) The 3 set rom debuff attack is probably the best damage+ debuff in the game. Its a boss/gate/cube raper.
Though i do like Tetryon for pvp with the full nukara space sets, and i also use spiral waves on my fed cruiser sometimes, these are also very powerful and i just like the look of them.

I was right about to ask about these. Right now i'm flying the Romulan Vet ship, so i was debating whether or not to go Romulan Plasma or Fleet plasma. Do the plasma tac consoles boost the lotus? Or would i still be better off going for the Fleet AP?
what is better, rom plasma from rep system or fleet advanced ones?
currently using borg phaser on my sci fed on fleet intrepid, borg tetryon on caitian carrier
on my Klingon tac i use borg antiproton on Mogh battlecruiser, have phased polaron equiped on temporal destroyer, and borg disruptors on bortasque
on my Romulan i still use generic rare plasma MKXI , planning to switch on fleet or rom rep plasma or even elite disruptors maybe later
on my fed tac i fly Kumari so i use andorian fleet phasers, also have antiproton borg on fleet defiant
Rom plasma does slightly less weapon damage than fleet plasmas, but the disruptor proc more than makes it up. The +9.5% dmg per science console plus disruptor proc is utterly OP and makes normal disruptors obsolete.
For the rpers, it's also a slightly bluish green color that matches TV Romulan disruptors perfectly, as opposed klinglon disruptors that are too green, or normal plasma that's too blue.
