I am wondering the same thing considering the new set and all is out.Does it make it worth it to have polaron now?

Its all relative to what ship your flying in my opinion.

I found that if your using beams then polaron is prob a better choice for a sci ship and cruiser than antiproton,

I ran with AP beams for ages until some recent changes happened and the power drain from them seemed to be higher than it used to and the crit rarely seemed to happen despite my setup having a hiigh crit chance, not justfying the power drain.

In my Escort I am still highly in favor of AP in cannon form it seems to tear shreds out of people and Borg quickly.

I guess ther e will be many opinions on this but I would say if running beams polaron is better and if running cannons AP.

I would say that AP is only worth it if you are a tac. If you aren't a tac, then go with something else.

I main an Engineer in a DSSV, I run DBB AP in the front and Polaron Turrets in the back... I like the mix.. adds punch where I need it and since turrets aint heavy damage they can help drop power levels.

For what it is worth, Polaron DHC's have the best modifiers.

(Of the ones in the dilithium store.)

Well said indeed. I like to refer as polarn as the "kid that annoies you". Think of it like this it drians power...so it fits a control style type play. Hardly useful for a more dps central playstyle. Antiprotons are quite the oppiste esp with crict happy builds.
