# 1 Newbie needs help

Anybody can point a newbie in the direction of some guides? For example what the heck do all the things like Deflector Array do? Or any of the ship array's?

There are so many different "items" that boost things that I have no idea what they do.

EDIT: BTW I am an Engineer.

This.

Right-click --> Info is as informative as STO gets.

Also, check the links in my signature if they you're so inclined. Lots of neat info there.

Nice guides but none of which discuss what he wants. He was asking what all the boost stats on the different types of deflectors do so he can decide which one to use.

Here is a link to a thread that explains it better.

Basically you need to use the info option on your different skills your using to determine which factors contribute to it.

Like gravity well or tykens rift use the spatial anomaly aspect. so any dish that boosts that figure will help.
Or if you use tractor beam you want to look for a dish that boosts that.

Actually all info is appreciated. There are a lot of stats and stuff that do a lot of different things and figuring them all out is quite a learning curve.

Try using STOwiki, that's quite good with explaining what various things do...
