I don't know about the rest of you all but AP beams both stock antiproton and fluidic antiproton are pretty good to me. I've tried the others even the BIO-MOLECULAR PHASER nah.. But again I've mention this prior but the: EPS and Power Transfer Rate: % (sec) rise the level. But again AP works for me.


Time will only tell!

Lol, you mentioned the one NPC that brushes off the phaser proc. Heck, you'd do better using tetryons against the Borg.

I recently stopped using my AP weapons and went back to Disruptors. I like the green better (fav color)... pew pew pew

Not to mention, the undine 2pc makes them stupid powerful.
I use to do 100K DPS, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

Why? When my phasers work so well,... if something is working just fine, no need to change it.

Its not only borg cubes. People keep saying phaser weapons are crap, but you wrong. Im TIRED of killing with easy any ship around, even in elite difficulty with just phaser builds. They are not as strong as the others, but they are still effective. But i guess people forget again, that the proc is not the thing that makes the weapon useful or not. Its just the damage it deals to the target, thats all. Who cares about the proc?? nobody. Seriously.

P.D.: Hell, i even ended first in the CE event using my dyson phaser build , that says it all (in normal, of course).

The content is pretty easy and standard weapons will work. But even though it is still pretty easy i will keep trying to find ways to challenge myself. I dont believe in taking off my gear or wearing white quality gear to handicap myself which makes things harder. Instead i'll improve my gear, my build and my ship as a whole and then i'll try to turn a 2, 3 or 4 man job into a one man job.

http://skillplanner.stoacademy.com/?build=stonewbmod2_0

That's my ship, my offensive stats are 22.7% accuracy, 19.4% crit, 106.5% severity. WAY more then you need for old Borg ESTFs. I built the ship a few months ago and my plan was to get Rom Plas first then a few months later upgrade it to a full fleet AP and fleet AP consoles. But i just came back a few weeks ago and DR is close so i am holding off on upgrading. I actually just upgraded my shields and singularity to fleet a few days ago and that's it. The Rom Plas set is nothing but accuracy and 6% crit from the experimental array. If i had upgraded to Fleet AP weapons and consoles I would have gotten a bunch more crit and severity.

But again that's overkill for an ESTF right? you can go into battle with a rusty butter knife taped to the front of your ship and you can still kill borg like that. But like i said i like to challenge myself. My ship can melt Borg too...a probe, group of probes, spheres, a bunch of spheres, a tac cube, two tac cubes at the same time, two tac cubes at the same time along with 2 probes 2 nanites generators and a transformer, i can melt an entire side of KVE alone and a lot of times faster then the other 4 people on the other side unless they are equally geared and skilled. I can do an entire side of Cure Elite by myself, including any BoPs, Raptors and Negvhar that spawn and head for Kang. That includes the roaming Negvhar and roaming Raptor that spawns when you kill the first upper nanite. I'm not going to go to one side of KVE and just kill probes as they spawn. I'm going to do that and a bunch more.

BUT one other reason for keeping all my gear up to date, optimized and the best quality that i can get it because i am still hopeful that maybe they will add a bunch of new 5 mans that are actually fun and scaled for very rare XII. I tried the new Undine stuff and Voth 5 mans but i hate all the new gimmicks they keep trying to add.

In general, white mark 6 = green mark 5 = blue mark 4 = purple mark 3 (more true of consoles and engines than guns, but still a rough guide).

But there's tons of variation depending on mods etc. So while that is a rough guide, especially while leveling it is best to try and stick with the highest mark of gear you can.

As for the damage types, tetryons are by far the worst, avoid them unless you are willing and able to overcome their suckiness and/or you just like the color.

The top damage tends to be plasma disruptor and antiproton. Disruptor has an edge on teams as all your allies benefit from the -resistance they create. Antiproton require you to have a lot of critical hit chance for best effect. Plasma has a burn that bypasses shields, so it helps on the tougher enemies.

Polarons and phasers work best on builds that are aimed at weakening the enemy.

While leveling though, it is best to just stick to whatever your missions are giving you, don't worry too much about damage type.

Energy weapon type actually have the least effect on your damage output.

Does it help? Yes but only slightly.

All energy weapons of the same Mk will have the same base damage stats.

It's the build and how you fly it that really determines how much damage you do.


I believe I'm living proof of that having done ESTFs with over 37k DPS in a Fleet Avenger with Acc x2 CrtD exchange phasers. Didn't even have the phaser boosting set yet.

Yeah, the whole dumb reason behind this, is because if they don't clear it themselves, than they get the 10sec immunity afterwards.

I have been running the destabilizing tetryons, and I will say they come in quite handy against boss types, as they can never clear it often enough (max I have accomplished is 5 stacks @ -58 each shield facing per sec., for 15sec. per stack, or overall 4350 per facing in 15sec., with almost no pause between stacks, being able to keep it running).

They just keep ticking down their shields, till they eventually have no shields at all, big help to the team when dealing with these boss types.
