I do the same thing, especially when employing shield subsystem attacks. Typical Escort forward weapon set-up is (from left to right) beam array - DHC - DHC - Torpedo Launcher. This allows energy weapons to hit or weaken shields first, just before the torpedo hits its target.


Unfortunately I won't have access to the Omega Torpedo for at least 2 more days, but I'm patiently watching the in-game clock

I'm curious to know why the DPS for this and the Romulan hyper-plasma torpedoes show 2x DPS compared to the damage it says it can do.

Normally, the torpedo DPS is lower than the damage.

Someone on OPvP last night said the Romulan torpedo fires every second, but that number doesn't add up...

With a maximum of 5 charges and recharge one charge every 6 seconds.

Also, consider that the omega weapon 3-piece set bonus is (by all appearances) nonfunctional as is the Romulan Plasma torpedo launcher (it's just a placeholder). Now is the best time for people to express their concerns with how it works.
2. Because the mechanism for this torpedo is different from other torpedos, it might make sense for it to not trigger GCD of normal torpedo launchers.
I've seen the adapted omega 3 piece proc a couple times. I don't know if it works for certain, but it appears to.

It can fire off rapidly, and the game doesn't have a way to account for the weapons unique recharge cycle in it's dps calculations. So it can do that much dps until it runs out of charges, then it falls off drastically.

Here's a parse showing what it (and Romulan Weapons & the cutting beam) can accomplish on a Jem'Hadar ship. All Plasma Infuser consoles (+30 plasma energy weapons x5). No projectile doffs.

The higher plasma fire (5%) comes from the Torp(it stacks on itself), the lower one from my cannons. Pretty respectable. The torp spread explosion animations are pretty badass too, though I'm not sure if it's just a plasma torp thing or unique to the weapon (i've never used regular plasma torps).

That was a particularly terrible team too, everyone else sub 1600 dps; it wasn't a speedrun with tons of people using APBs; just me

You're referring to the Omega torpedo, yes?

What about the Romulan torp?

At this point in time they are the same weapon with different names. I don't know if that's intentional or if its a placeholder and they neglected to put the Romulan torp in the rep tree

That's odd.

Last night, people in the OPvP channel were saying that THY and TS do not work with the Romulan torpedo, but do with the Omega.
