New epics seem to be a big mistake this early in the game - I mean they basically negate all previous weapon specs if you havent spent your points yet at General.
it takes 53 points to get a shield/engine/deflector dish, 4 to get a ground weapon, 7 to get a space weapon (and i forgot the other numbers). you get 5 per day, so its a good way to get people to stay. it would take 32 days of getting all the dailies and not missing one to fill up on all three of the "big grapes"
in addition, in order to get anti-proton's to their highest potential you must use all of your skill points on them, and screw your other skills.
And I thought I read somewhere the Tricobalt devices wouldn't be affected by HYT... maybe I was just imagining things.
Fairly certain they're always high yield persay, they are always a large and targitable torpedo like HYT plasmas
