Skill Mod (99% total)

So for a beam array at base 100 damage let us make it mark 12 ultra rare maxed skills we have this:

100+10+120+99 = 329 before consoles. A purple Mk 12 specific console adds 30 to that number per, a generic adds 20.

So your looking at a 10 damage difference per console, lets go 5 console ship for kicks.

479 vs 409 for your base damage which is then modified by weapon power and all other multiplicative things.

So you see, even on a 5 console ship it is more like a 15% difference in the end. Hardly as big of a deal as many seem to think.
