How long has this been around? I use TBR for clearing spam, never thought to equip/spec around it as a primary weapon. Has it always been possible to do this, or did something recently change?

When did TBR actually push into broken damage levels? It's been a long time staple in my cruiser/carrier builds to keep escorts at 5 km or more and kill annoying pets/mines.

Semi-off topic question for those who are more familiar with this power, can it crit? I heard zone chat complaints of TBR crits dealing over 30K damage on a critical and didn't believe it. I'm having no luck finding this information on my own and don't want to start a new thread for such a simple question.

Edit: I read the above post but don't believe that's the whole story.

[Combat (Self)] Your Tractor Beam Repulsor II deals 28905 (12921) Kinetic Damage(Critical) to Gateway.

One example. I haven't bothered putting together a dedicated tac sci ship since they broke this no doubt I could push 40k with TBR and the right debuffs, players tend to have more resist then borg. Still 12-20k is not hard to achieve.

Bumping to make sure Borticus sees this. They really are way over the top.

No +Grav, as much +Part, and... yeah - I'm not going to bother with PvP until this is fixed.

RE: Can it quote.

For well north of 30k damage per pulse in the hands of Tac captain in a ship specced to take advantage of it.

It's pointless if you're not running TBR now.

Kahless I feel old. I remember when TBR was useless for combat damagewise and was only good for pushing......

Got an MVAM, loaded up TBR II and 3 Mk XII Particle consoles...

Unbuffed, sitting in space: 3.7k damage list in the UI. Buffed was like 8 to 9k and I just used tac team, APA, APO, and FOMM. Gotta pop everything to get around 10k...

Aren't there regular alpha strikes by tacs in tac ships that are worse? My opening salvo on the puke of ships, fully buffed, with CSV2 in the mirror incursion event is around 18k dps for about 4 or 5 seconds....

edit: eh the more I play with it the more I agree its pretty op, but i think it would be difficult to work it into a play style
1hr of work @NYS Min Wage 7.25 = 725 Zen
725 x 102 (or current exchange rate) DL = 73950 DL <- can you earn that per hour in game?
