Also TSS does have the ability to proc all 4 facings down


you encountered a bug. cryptic fixed it so it doesnt drop past 100 anymore, so swapping to full shield power is a counter. it DOES NOT have a proc to drop all four facings, unless it drops your shield power to 0. only phasers have a chance to drop all shields for a few secs.

Okay - what is a power sip III, I am a fed sci never, heard of this skill? where do you get it?

Power Siphen III... I notice today with the update it only does a wonderful -15 power... I don't mind the photonic officer change. It dosn't dorp the cool downs as hard but it lasts 60 seconds now. I dropped one and freed up a BO slot nice.
I got level 3 off the exchange... I think level 1 and 2 are trainable in station.

Power Siphen isn't used alot I don't think people think -15 power is worth the level 3 power... but with polaron and TSS II you are doing major damage to power levels.

Are you talking about energy siphon?

This just in:

The actual chance to offline shields with phasers is 0,625%.

2,5% chance to drop one subsystem.

There are four subsystems.

2,5 / 4 = 0,625



(By the way, I can achieve a total drain of -72 with TSS2 and energy siphon 1, using non-grandfathered consoles, I get -63 on the TSS2 itself(on a star cruiser))

Thanks for the clarification. I found a TSS3 BO and im trying to decide if I should use it or sell it. They are worth a ridiculous amount right now ... but who needs credits ?

Use it. Or at least, store it.

Otherwise you might regret it!
