# 1 Energy Management

What if any benefit does a person get in a tier two ship running their weapons at max? Do the weapons do more damage with higher energy allocated or does it just fire more?

At tier two ships (cruisers) I use like 10 points of energy per shot, with only two phaser arrays, this leaves a lot of energy left over. Would this energy be better spent in the shield or AUX power areas?

the higher the power setting the more damage the hits with energy weapons do, I think at 125 (the max) its double damage.

Projectile weapons don't gain this benefit though, so mines and torps will always do set damage.
