The only cstore consoles worth a slot are plasmonic leech and valedore console. The good consoles tend to be passive ones. Active = gemmick = not worth a slot.

I don't think I would put the console on a real ship though, console space is always in short supply (even on fleet ships) and you have to make strategic decisions while filling the slots.
OMG is that really possible? That's some serious firepower for a shuttle.

Applies to a lot of gemmick consoles.

As far as i know, there are no console restrictions for shuttles.


As to the consoles on ships.....the PDS is also, i believe, boosted by tac consoles.

Thus, on the right build, it can be a useful extra boost of 360 degree firepower every 3 minutes or so.

On a HEC, equipping both is interesting.

It's a bit like packing two copies of a boff skill, you can fire the one during the cooldown of the other for more uptime.

I love the consoles, they're 2 of my favorites.

That said, I can only justify fitting them outside of specialty builds for casual pve experience.

They really should be part of a 2 piece set bonus that lowers cooldown or something.
