If you have tried this console out I would love to know:

A) How it works (ie. cooldowns, duration etc.).

B) How much of a drain it puts on enemy systems.

C) How much of a boost it gives to your systems.

Answering all or part of those would be helpful.

iT APPEARS THAT IF YOU ARE DESIGNED TO CAPATILIZE on power draing, shield draining or just being a drain boat in general the Plasmodic leach is boosted to great levels, like Polarons, tetryons, aceton assimilator and other drain attack abilities and consoles, all by the new skill system.

In fact the new skills seem to boost a great deal of those builds specialized to exploit the strengths of a particular type of attack and leads untruth to being over specialized breeds weakness.

I've even experienced the maxed stun duration of a PSW torpedo thanks to the player in question being specced to do max PSW effects. I do not find that unfair as long as the skills can not boost sida effects past respectable levels and would much rather see the skill trees buffing lowerd in regards to how they effect consoles versus the consoles being nerfed by fedwhine.

Since I'm not speciliazed in drain boating, I can not give accurate numbers.

This is the one that makes all your weapons drain power right?

I use it. From my experience it drains about 15 from each subsystem and adds it to yours. Its fantastic. Using this and EPS Power Transfer / Red Matter Capacitor I am usually over 100 in aux and 125 in weapons, shields and engines.

Such a good console.

I am seriously thinking about this on my escort with either a tetryon or Polaron build and throw in my Borg TB. That sounds like energy sucking fun. Of course I would have to ditch graviton pulse.

I use it on a Raptor and BoP.

With Rapid Fire my power levels will go up anywhere from +10 to +20. I notice my engines go from around 50 to 70. I can hit BO3 and start going with rapid fire 3, my weapons levels will go back up over 100 in just a few seconds.

It has no cool down, its a passive ability.

If you have a console slot you can spare I would always use it, even if you're not going for a polaron draining type of build. It seems to be the crazy console no one talks about.

In the immortal words of Spock: Fascinating.

Alright, I will keep this one in mind as a possible grab for my Guramba then. Thank you for the input, it was very helpful.

I have found the Vents from the Scourge Destroyer are NAAASTY when put on a Guramba. They make it one of the most wicked Escortish ships in the game.

This sounds like nasty fun. Where does it come from? Is it attached to a C-Store ship?

Be warned though, since the skill tree buffs it and a drain build especially so, many will call foul against you in even an open area like Ker'rat. Also I am unaware what the countering ability is of the console, if it has one at all. Unlike the Gravitonic Pulse console, which is also buffed via the S.T. , but has Engineering team as a counter at least.

Actually this is probably the most abusable op console you can fit on your ship.


Not because it boosts your power levels, screw that. But because it will ruin your targets power levels.


Combine it with a tykens and a treactor beam and you get nasty ship build that will net you kills.

Also its godly becuase its a passive ability that will always benefit you. Also, it is per pulse fired, so every little bolt of energy fro m cannon rapid fire is going to suck power for you.


do not forget to get the theta radiation vent and the warp jump console. so you can drain shields with theta and jump behind your target whenever you please.





Right now, its a good time to be klingon.

Until the next op fed console appears.


^^ so enjoy while it lasts.

I see what you did there.

There is a downside to this ability as well. If your ship cloaks, & you equip this console, your opponent will know you are near by the sudden power drain.
