Question is, does the APB modify all damage received by the target (ie shields and hull), or just hull damage it takes?
Have been tinkering with my tac skills, browsing other people's builds...some people seem to advocate APO, some APB. Yes, APO has some utility skills, but. If I'm mostly gonna grind STFs, why not be a team player, might as well go with APB...I think anyways (assuming it's not just a hull damage resistance thing).
Aye, Beta just effects hull resistance. Omega is pretty good all around but it's mainly about keeping yourself moving and reacquiring a targeting arc. Speed is life. As you said though, for a team skill AP:Beta 3 is a pretty great contribution.
