Points to consider:
1. Does not benefit from abilties like CRF, BO and FAW
2. No consoles for it
3. Omega Weapon Proc (about every 2 volleys in a DHC escort (with 2 turrets and one kinetic beam), must be paired with borg console) also I am guessing resistance means less drain on weapon power for the duration
4. Is still firing in the firing cycle after the one in which it was "fired" so may drain the DHC (or whatever) in the next firing cycle.
5. Since its kinetic damage should not be affected by Starship Energy weapons skill (and related) and I doubt it is affected by projectile weapon skill (and related) since that does not affect all kinetic damage (as far as I know).
Does the resistance + extra weapon power overcome (or even exceed) all of the above caveats?
Been playing with it, and actually I really like it. For ships that are setup as shield strippers it works very well when paired with tetryon glider. It's instantaneous hull damage over time. It has a 1 second recharge per 4 pulses. Oh and you can stack DEM with it too.
Its unaffected by any weapons specific consoles or powers.
It is affected by energy weapons skills.
It is affected by weapons power levels.
It is affected by anything that globaly increases damage (attack patterns and such)
Only ONE per ship (there has been confusion about this in other threads)
Omega weapons amp applies to ALL weapons including console weapons.
its useful with tetryon builds....really good with the omega 2 pc bonus....and if running the 3-pc borg you have the borg tractor beam which inflicts large amts of damage to the hull (i think its around 2,500 per tick or per 4 seconds...either way its still big...) but the 4 min CD kills it and makes me run the 2-pc omega with tetryon weapons. i havent tried it in PVP yet...but ist really good in PvE (the tholians hate it thats for sure hahaha)
