# 1 Romulan Commanders

Way way to powerful for the current level. I am LT6, and I'm getting hugely annoyed.

I end up trying to fight a commander for 6 minutes just now last time, and 4 minutes just previous one because they regenerate there shields like mad. I can understand one or two times, but when there regenerating using a shield fabrication AND a skill to replenish shields, it gets a bit insane. Normally I end up kiling them because of bleedthrough or when I get there shields down for a couple seconds but they normally replenish in a heartbeat. Again I'm fine with having a actual battle, but when theres 5 people plus a turret going at them, with IV type weapons, then I think its a issue. I 'am' killing the shield fabrication whenever it does come out and for the most case everything else sides the commander are pretty balanced for my level,

Anyone else have this problem/find them too strong?

Get a plasma grenade kit and throw them often. The plasma fires will burn them to death despite shield recharge.

I think they are a good challenge and they are just right.

Plasma weapons do a DoT that bypasses shields.

Plasma grenades have been mentioned.

Tetryon weapons have a chance to do extra damage to shields.

Melee attacks bypass shields. Remember those swordmasters? Get up in their faces and slap em around while your away team focus fires.

Expose them, and then exploit to blow right through the shields in one hit.

Romulans do such crappy damage though. All you have to do is whale away until he exposes, then do an exploit from the flank.

PS, flanking damage.

Things that will help when placed on your Boffs

Target Optics
Tricoder Scan
Weapons Malfunction
Weapons that do exposes
Plasma Weapons (DoT)

Personally, I think Romulans are way too easy. Cake compared to klingons or cardassians. I once tanked five spawns just with reroute power to shields.

I liked the Centurion Medic that was able to resuscitate a Romulan I had just disintegrated. Now that is skill.

The only ground combatants I find tough so far are the Hirogen.
