I must agree to some here that Repulsor Beam is by far the most annoying power, not if your enemy uses it (it can even bey helpful to get some distance to your enemy ), but more than that it is annoying if someone of your own team is using it. Especially if you just locked the enemy into a Eject Warp Plasma cloud or a Gravity well.

Sweeping strikes are WAY better than any melee weapon or martial arts, un-trained you do at least 90ish damage per hit, trained that goes up to like 120. Actually put on gear that helps and improves melee, the number becomes like 150 damage per swing.

Then get 3x Purple Security Doffs with the improved melee crit/crit dam and you've got some serious butt kicking (literally) power. Using 2x Tosks for the 30% knockdown is overkill

I generally crit every other hit for around 400+ damage, I crit on exploits with lunge for well over 1000.
----

Photonic Fleet is very useful, ummm. I don't know where to begin, but it's summoning in a ton of ships to help you? That (even if they do sucky damage, which they don't) alone is enough to make it a great power.

Even in elite space STF this power shines... If you run a Sci, play around with it again. Maybe you had a bad experience.
----

I say that there are great skills, but put into bad groupings (kit wise). For example, Stealth module is great (ok, it could use some work) but it would work better in close combat.

Otherwise, I'd say flat out that motion accelerator is lame. Mainly because of the CD, lower the CD to something reasonable, and it'd be a good skill... Why is it a 3 min recharge? Dev foolishness.

Space: Photonic Officer.. never found a use for it except waste time and a power
Ground: Combat Supply.. ok well kinda useful maybe for lower level stuff but not much so for VA/STFs... normally everyone pretty much has what the need to survive without combat supply drops

Repulsor beams are the reason I want to be able to shoot my own teammates. I can't tell you how many times I've charged up all my tac buffs to go after a boss mob only to have some screwball push it out of weapons range. All the while the mission timer is counting down tick...tick...tick.

Perhaps we should retitle the Thread to 'Most Useless New Player/Skill' combinations. My choices would be as follows:

Top Ten Newbie Skill Usage in Elite STF's

10.) Gravitic Anchor applied to Gate
9.) Mines deployed 10 KM from targets.
8.) Turret Fabrication behind cover shield (a personal favourite)
7.) Spontaneous Eject Warp Plasma when you see any target, anywhere.
6.) Scramble Sensors
5.) The 300 Day Vet fireworks device
4.) Repulsor beams, pushing probes towards the temporal gateway.
3.) *It's the New Repulsor!* Vesta's Multidimensional Graviton Shield
2.) Repulsor beams, pushing and/or spreading targets out of range after you used Gravity Well.
1.) Tricobalts ('nuff said.)

(Emphasis mine)

I solo tank the tac cube in ISE regularly and very rarely have trouble surviving.
I don't use Aceton beam.
Tried it out here and there since launch, but always felt it was unnecessary. Usually use Extend3 or SIF3.

Just my 2 cents though.
