you do know the pets get boosted by consoles right? so if your running disruptor and split up your ship they use phaser thus not getting wep damage boosted.

could never understand how you can load ap distruptr or any other wep type, split up the ship and magically the pets shoot phaser. idk kinda lol to me.

Hard to ignore Phasers.

But Plasma? For T5 PVP, useless. For lower tiers, esp. below RAdm/BGen, Plasma can actually be useful.

Okay, here is what you do. Try them all.

Either go to the vendors or the exchange and pick up a complete set of the weapon type you want to try. Don't worry about getting blue or purple, green is plenty good. Should be able to get those cheap (and maybe even blue or purple depending on the type) along with the related consoles. Don't worry about getting Mk XI or Mk XII. Green or white Mk Xs are fine for this.

Try them. If you don't like them. Try something else. Once you find something you like, begin investing in higher quality.

did this change after the new skill tree? I know this wasnt the case before the switch, which admittedly was a long time ago now. (been awhile since I flew mvam)

Basically this:

Phaser > Polaron/Tetryon > Disruptor > Anti Proton > Plasma.

Why? Phasers have obviously the best procs.

Polaron/Tetryon both drain some stuff from your ship, practically its basically about the same end effect.

Disruptor -10 debuff, not better then Tet/Pol but still better then AP. Although that -10 is really hardly noticable at all. (Hull resistance debuff)

Antiproton +20 Severity. Negligable since all available weapon mods for AP are with [dmg] mods anyway. That would mean they would do a few DPS more then a different weapon type with CrtDx3 mods. Also u cannot use these with 2x or 3x Accuracy on any of them, perhaps 1 that might have 2x acc, but thats it.

Plasma? About all good shields reduce its damage by 20%.



These are the facts on Weapons in PvP. If anyone tells you otherwise, they are in error.

First off AP dose have a (acc)x2 mode I have 3 turts that are (acc)x2 (critH) that have that cost more then I want to admit and further more there is a (acc)x3 AP I've only seen it on a DC before and I've never seen it on any other weapon well ever but they do exist.

Is there any truth in the rumor that the Disruptor debuff is in fact -10 for all other damage types but -30 for Disruptor itself?

I'd rather shred his cruiser to pieces.

Btw. the assertion came from a member of TSI, and he claimed he could prove it.
