I've recently hit tier 4 on Omega Rep, and been considering which option to get. As I primarily fly a B'rel torpedo boat, extra shield regen is useless to me...
but I'm wondering if the kinetic damage would actually harm my build more than help it- as if I'm not doing damage to shields (dealing fixed damage instead of knocking shields out) then I'll never be getting the big hits during the second half of my attack run, as their shields will still be up.
As anyone tested this interaction out, and if so what are your findings?
Because as cool as the kinetic damage is, I may very well take the useless ability if the other choice actually nerfs my build.
