Ok, have maxed out my skill points in Disruptor weapons and the others leading up to those, and now that Ive hit this nasty skill cap due to being an admiral, and we cant respec at all I cant add points to any other weapon class..

So I had all Mk X's disruptor beams on my star cruiser and was doing ok, but now that we have the daily quests and the rewards are antiproton beams is it worth changing to antiproton beams and not have any skill points spent on them, or should I stick with disruptors as I have max skill points spent on them ??

In other words would I get more DPS from disruptors as I have the disruptor skill maxed, or would the antiproton beams give a better DPS ?

Just feels very lame not being able to upgrade due to this skill cap and no respec..

As im sure like a lot of others I wasted SP's on things I now dont use at all due to thinking I wanted escorts and also due to very poor skill descriptions.

I know they are coming out with a respec option... some time in a galaxy far far away in the distant future but doesnt help now when I want to pick to the best weapons for my ship but feel so restricted in choice

Any info on this would be great.

Cheers.

well, i cant test your specific problem, but i had a similar problem when i skilled phasers and then got my first plasma weapons (wasn`t able to skill plasmas at that lvl.... well, thats another bug in my opinion, but back on topic), i just tried it and even if the dps of the plasma weapons was higher, the dmg and dps displayed when equiped was lower than those of the phaser weapons... way lower...

same was with phaser vs tetryon weapons, so i suppose unskilled weapons will fail all the time against skilled weapons... thats why i still using phasers ^^

All the weapons do the same damage, The SP's you spent in Disruptors means your going to get a hell of a lot more Bang out of them than any of the other weapons you can equip.

It just comes down to which bonuses you like, I liked most of the bonuses but stuck with Phasers cause of the lower SP cost. When I do my second Toon I'll max out Disruptors and the third will be Tetryon it's really just down to what you like.

Oh of course, I didnt even think to check the DPS the game shows to compare myself.. duh to me !

Though thanks for answering the question, so all the new reward weapons are pointless and pretty much useless for now... thats so lame

Oh well.. back to plain old disruptors till Cryptic pulls its collective finger out and gives us a respec option

Thanks guys.
