# 1 Plasma Cannons
04-07-2010, 02:31 AM
Does anybody use these...or tetryon and others that aren't disruptor or phaser based? I am using Plasma Beams on my K'Tanco and am happy with their performance. I am wondering if it is worth it to invest in the cannons for my BoP / Raptor...or escort for that matter

Just reg cannons or dual cannons or dual H cannons?

people use phasers/ruptors because they can skill them cheap.


People use antiproton because these things just are powerful - even unskilled.


People use plasma/tetryon/polaron for looks, or because they think those things are performing well, when in reality they do little to nothing but raise the cost to skill them and look different.
The damage is the same ,since most people go to pvp with omni resistances.

Actually plasmas are evil with the dot, i just dont like their look and sound, so stick to phasers.

Yup, the Plasma DoT is very underastimated. It is improved by damage buffs like attack patterns and I had Plasma DoT's ticking for something like ~470 damage.

I believe the dot stacks, so in case of rapid fire, you have very high chance of stacking several of them.

Sorry for the ignorant question...still relatively new with nothing above tier 2. What is a DoT?

I run AP for Damage and the shield penetration, and Tetryon for the Shield Damage chance.

Unlike what some people think there is diffrent effects of all weapons, such at the DoT Bleed effect of Plasma weapons.

To get the proper info about a weapon and it's effect, right click the item, and choose info to get proper overview of the weapons and it's bonusses, as well as what skills enhance the weapon.
Some forget to do this.
