Yeah there are a lot of engineering and science kits that need to be revamped because of their debatable view of being near or absolutely worthless.

Will this review pass also address the ultra-rare Romulan kits? I'm not going to buy a Mk XII kit until the Plasma Grenade IV has better stats than my current Plasma Grenade III:

Not sure how much of a solution that really is tho.. if you activate target optics it puts you in red alert.. that red alert however is only 3 seconds long, the one you want to happen would have to be a real red-alert at least.

That still wouldn't be much of a solution to science player's buffing nanite health monitors from different kits tho.

In space when you buff someone with a healing ability and switch the boff after it the healing ability is canceled i wonder if the same could be done for ground.

Maybe switching a kit should generally put all the abilities from the kit on a full cooldown in the beginning, but even that would still present some benefits (like doing nhm then switching physicist), so canceling buffs is something that may be still needed in some way.

I know that it's easy to assume things out, but with in mind the Traits Revamp on Tribble, Covert is not getting touched, on the contrary is getting Buffed, and I quote.

Covert
- In addition to its previous effects, this trait now increases the bonus flanking damage your character deals.

So we can assume that Perfect Cloak it's an intended feature or are we going to have a Perception buff somehow?


Also, Scis are getting tankier, in the Engy way:

Ground -Medical Vanguard:
- All powers you use on allies give them perfect shields for 4 seconds, along with a moderate Shield Heal.

Why the Science Class -a HP tank- is now getting Shield tanking?. I thought that this was only ground for Engineers. Why not make Medical Vaguard a perfect HP for 4 seconds? That would be too much?

I did some very quick testing (and I stress very):

Quote:
Flank on Tribble with Covert
Your Compression Bolt Setting dealt 365 (604) shield damage to Tactical Drone.
Your Compression Bolt Setting deals 809 (855) Plasma Damage to Tactical Drone.
Quote:
Nonflank on Tribble with Covert
Your Compression Bolt Setting dealt 365 (512) shield damage to Tactical Drone.
Your Compression Bolt Setting deals 619 (807) Plasma Damage to Tactical Drone.
Quote:
Flank on live server (same exact character)
Your Compression Bolt Setting dealt 365 (604) shield damage to Tactical Drone.
Your Compression Bolt Setting deals 654 (761) Plasma Damage to Tactical Drone.
Quote:
Nonflank on live server
Your Compression Bolt Setting dealt 365 (512) shield damage to Tactical Drone.
Your Compression Bolt Setting deals 602 (795) Plasma Damage to Tactical Drone.
I'm not good at math, but this looks like a 25%-30% increase in flank damage. Granted, it's not a great test as I've only shot once for each test. But it's enough to see the increase.

On the bright side, Acute Senses provides a 25% resistance to flank damage. I'm just worried that not every race has access to it, while it seems every race has access to Covert on Tribble.

The way I'm reading it, is that the perfect shield effect only applies to allies, not to yourself, which encourages team healing and not self tanking.

Currently on tribble the sci can cast medical vanguard on themself from any heal including hypos. Whether it will stay that way, who knows. At the moment medical vanguard stays active for the full duration of NHM so, obviously a work in progress. The effect does not stack however, the 4 sec timer gets reset from each heal used. As much as I hate the thought of sci's getting even tankier, the effect from it was noticable in testing but not game breakingly OP, tho that was just a very quick test of the ability. Now where's my engie health heal/Dot cure ability. May as well give engie some innate health heal ability as long as scis will be able to heal shields too.

And meh to the covert buff. I guess Operative tacs didn't have enough flank dmg...
