# 1 Do embassy -th consoles stack?

I'm pulling insane amounts of aggro for some reason, even just auto-firing. Do these things stack their -Th effect?

yeah...

Every time I see an engineer in a cruiser sporting them I die a little on the inside. Not that they must be "tanks" but come on...


For me though, I've been using +th consoles and doffed APD on a lot of my ships just to make STFs a little more interesting. Nothing like taking ALL the agro in my little armatage

See what I've had to do for fun in STFs......I'm looking at you cryptic....

yes, either that or DPS of the next person on the aggro leather is so miserable, that no amount of -th could compensate.
when you are doing, on average, 2-3 times the dps and dmg of the second person in the parsed data, -th didn't even kick in.


what also seems to help, not much but still, to not be the first to fire on a target.

on my engi captains i actually use +th consoles, just to do the rest of the grp a favour...and an engi can normaly take the beating anyway, regardless of ship.

Funny you should say 2-3 times the dps. A single -th console decrease aggro by 2/3. You're back to starting point. The problem is when everyone else is sporting 2-3 -th consoles.

Well I'm flying a fleet nova, which isn't exactly tanky. I've been managing my cooldowns and abilites a little better to stay alive, but I still get waxed half the time, and I draw aggro seemingly just for existing. I can pull things I haven't even targeted.
