Yes plasma tac consoles do boost the lotus. They also boost the singularity beam console the arkif uses.

I tend tochange weapons for some builds when preparing for PvP. But these are good enough for PvE.

I like polarized disruptors. But with elite gear only available in one type, if I'm focusing on damage, elite disruptors win out for those builds.

For my tactical I really enjoy using the Elite Fleet Phasers for the shield heal proc. On my Engineer, I just use Advanced Fleet Antiproton for DPS potential. On my science, I use a mix of proton and antiproton, but would love to go with a full antiproton layout if they'd give us an omni-directional Proton beam.

I have many, many alts and a number of them use different energy types.

1. Disruptors - Big family of Disruptor damage types, though the KDF gets the added luxury of Eltie Fleet Disruptors. Between my alts, esp. on KDF side, this is by far my most commonly used energy weapon type.

2. Phasers - My Fed TAC has to keep it real for Starfleet.

3. Romulan Plasma - The only Plasma energy weapons I'll ever use.

4. Antiproton - Regular, trusted AP, not the Voth variety.

5. Polarons - A few of mine have these. Regular Polarons, Dominion Polarons, Phased Polarons. I'm beginning to like the Protonic Polarons a whole lot, esp. with builds that have high Crit Rates.

Nice, Thank you for that.

Does anyone know if the Elite Phaser are any good? I'm curious if they're worth getting for my fed tac, but i keep hearing too many differing opinions.

I find that I tend to prefer Tetryons and kinetic Plasma weapons. That said, I do love my mixed Disruptor loadout on my Bortasqu.

That said, I think the only damage type I don't have on one of my active ships right now is Polaron. That may change if I do try a proton build with one of the Sci-stroyers, but I they never really did it for me when I've used them in the past.

Some people like the heal procs. They're nice, but don't often kick in when you need them. The heal is a bit weaker than that of the valedore console.
