# 1 Can we fix Tricobalt devices?
11-18-2012, 09:59 AM
It appears that tricobalt devices are penetrating shields and destroying your ship in one hit. I was in Kerrat and those pesky klinks were using them. I was on my PVP toon and in no way should my ship be going down from a tricobalt mine.

Just counter them..

TBR`s, BFAW, CSV, torp spread, GW, TR, or u can even lay down your own mines.. there was similar thread to this one allready, u just need expect that in kerrat zone. There will be trico bombers all the time, i`m also one of them...

Its a known OP'dness, and for the record feds do it too!

the premise is that with dispersal alpha 3, you drop 4mines
1mine = no shields and stun
2nd 20-30kdamage
3rd 20-30k damage
and 4th finish up

just make sure you have abilkites that kill mines e.g. scatter volley, beam fire at will, tractor replse, warp plasma etc

if i remeber scramble sensors on the owner of the mines causes them to attack enemies instead, (not sure about that though)

Alternativly, dont suck and it goes like this:

1st mine hits your target's bug ship with half remaining shield and one shots it
AND its defiant wingman,

You know who you are.

Whats really cheesy but good for lols is to use the new and improved maco to diable a target and VM them just for extra make sure, followed by a nice AMS up close and then a dispersal and HY or spread of your trico torp as well. Its basically the three minute cooldown one finger salute. I might switch over to that setup permanently if my children's toys mission keeps throwing more purple trico consoles at me.

The reason they hurt so much more now is the behavior that popped up sometime in season 6 that if a kinetic weapon got through your shield it dealt full damage as if your shield hadnt been there. Where as before the shield % reduce on kinetic had still applied to the device that dropped the shield. So now its if one of the trico weapons dropped a shield its got a good shot at killing the ship, if there are more after it just get ready for the respawn button if the person knew what they were doing and caught you unaware.

I think a few of the devs like the mines this way
They have been on overkill a long time now

Makes pve a joke really

2 or 3 ships with mines speced out can rip
Thru any STF I'n a few minutes

There a riot I'n pvp ,spawning as a explosion
Really gets the excitement up for a good match
You know.

The devs never answering any of these posts must
Mean

It's working as intended
Jellico....Engineer ground.....Da'val Romulan space Sci
Saphire.. Science ground......Ko'el Romulan space Tac
Leva........Tactical ground.....Koj Romulan space Eng

JJ-Verse will never be Canon or considered Lore...It will always be JJ-Verse

Do you think that the Dominion called no fair when the Feds mined the wormhole which was their spawn in the Beta Quadrant. No they got on with it and took DS9 and then the pesky feds cheated by getting the Prophets involved.

Lesson to be learned, if you can't beat them then out-think them. I can assure you that there are two 100% sure fire ways to avoid the Spawn Miners. I will give you one but I'm not giving my other secret.


If you have a temporal Science Vessel or Temp Destroyer with the tipler cylinder then timing a temporal backstep while under attack from a Borg NPC so you are reversing just as the Map resets will reset you where you are in the map not at the respawn.

The second is Universal to any ship and will stop you going to the spawn but I will take it to my grave
