the insulators of power! they do nothing!....

i think the bad thing here is that all these nifty new reists added on are kinda countered by the enhancements on the same skill tree... it makes me wonder if theres any testing on this to see if thye cancel each other out?

1) Find some one with BTSS:X.

2) Activate the power

3) Mouse over the beam and record the power drain (this should include bonuses from skills and gear)

4) Target: Hale and shoot (only once, no need to kill him this time)

5) Hale tells us if is power drain matches what was recorded earlier (use display setting 1 on the power window for the numbers)

Yes, and no?

WIth 6/9, I can shrug off a fully spec'd (and console) 125 Aux Tyken's 3. I forget what exactly it drains, but it's not stopping me dead like it could before.

But, Siphon Drones on the other hand... even when I put a Power Insulator console on, those things suck me dry in seconds, leaving me defenseless to even try and destroy them or TBR them away.

Tyken's III is like -14 every sec. Don't remember how much it stacks now, but I've been finding it pretty useless now. Nerfed big time

with 2 eps consoles i find power drain from say cloak and tykens dont do anything to me.

e.g power goes from 69 - 59 - 69 -59 - 69

I blame that borg Bridge officer she sucks every last bit of juice out of it.

It seems to me that it is very effective against player powers like Tykens or TacBeam, but Klingon Carrier pets like syphon drones (stop me dead in the water) and tachyon drones (drain my shields unbelieveably fast) don't seem to be affected. It may just be perception, but I don't think so.

it seems not unlikely to me that these powers - since they are mostly new, as is the skill effect - are affected by the skill. Which is probably a bug.
