02-10-2010, 05:16 PM
Hey,

well ive become a Commander today and upgraded my tac boff to Lcm to get High Yield 3 but when i looked in the list of skills to train on officers there was no high yield 3, ive maxed out the requirement for HY3 wich is Starship torpedo's but still i cant find HY3.

am i doing something wrong or is it a known bug?

any answers are helpful

Are you a Tactical Officer based Captain? If not, you won't get said skill to train.

Yes, this isn't said anywhere in the game and makes no sense, but this is how Cryptic has designed it.

Go to some station/ground mission. Press "k" select yourself, and press train officer button. A popud window should appear.

Should be 'U' for player Status window, it's in there (not the Skills window).

HYT 1 is an ensign level ability

HYT 2 is an Lt level ability

As it was pointed out you can easily optain High Yield Torpedo II. Either by visiting the power store in the personell area on starbase 1 or by using a reward BO that happens to have HY II to train up your existing officer etc.

Before you ask, unfortunately as engineering captain you will however never be able to use High Yield Torp. III, no matter what ship class you fly or which skills you invest your skillpoints in. HY III is an ability only tactical captains can unlock and use, if they fly an escort class ship.

The HY II that you are looking for right now is fairly easily optainable though.
The fastest way is to visit said power store, look unter lieutenant skills, click on Torpedo High Yield II and select the tactical officer that you want to train up in this skill (remember it will replace whichever space LT ability he/she has at the moment).

Just to clarify, are there no BO's (Purple, Very Rare) that have High Yield III?

or

Any BO's that have Medical Tricorder III

Are these only ever trainable by Tac/Sci officers? If that is the case, what Engineering ability can only be trained by Engineering Officers that will never be found on a BO?

Thanks in advance.

(I search the Exchange daily for Medical Tricorder III, so this will save me time looking if this is the case)

It is safe to assume that none of the abilities that are unlockable by players through spending skillpoints are ever found on rare BOs.
There is one exception that I am aware of and that is Attack Pattern Omega III. Aside from this one, I never saw an unlockable ability on a rare BO.

Engineering player exclusive skills are, well, those unlocked with skills in the engineering area of the player skills.
There are a couple that I recall from the top of my head: Emergency Power to Shields/Engines/Auxiliary/Weapons III, Directed Energy modulation III, Extend Shields III. Possibly Reverse Shield Polarity III as well but not sure about thatone.
There are probably more but those are the ones I recall seeing in the player skill tree that can only be gained by engineering players.
