# 1 MVAM Question.
08-29-2011, 03:30 AM
I notice the pets fire Phaser beams and Photon Torpedoes. For max effect from the pets should I spec beams and photons?

Best to spec the weapons in regards of beam/phasers and torpedoes anyway, makes them a lot more effective in the long run for both combined and MVAM modes.

Your weapon specialization does not do anything for your pets. I'm not going to dig up a dev quote, but I'm sure you can find one.

I've found it does, got phasers and torpedoes all maxed out and it's made the MVAM pretty lethal.

You know I did try to find this topic using the search function before I started this. You seem very confident in your answer.

I'm not saying you're wrong, I'd just like you to cite your source if you have one.

Here you go:
http://www.stowiki.org/Ability:_Mult..._Alpha_Command

The skills that affect your pets are the skills listed there. You can check Beta and Gamma versions but I think they're all the same.

Edited to give a better link.

you can tell what powers go to what skills by going to your captain skills and then clicking on the box in the top right corner which allows u to highlight to effected skills.

That being said, until cryptic fixes the higher tier beams, its always best to spec in the tier 3 weapons due to the cost in points.

Your going to need those points in your SCI skills otherwise the LT.CMD sci station is pointless in that tiny escort.

I pretty much only post here while I'm at work, so I can't see my skills right now.

And I've yet to see a weapon more fleet friendly than the phaser, though polaron is close.
