Each Advanced Odyssey Cruiser comes with its own special console. These consoles may be equipped on any of the Advanced Odyssey Cruisers in any console slot, and each is part of the Odyssey Set. While they may not be equipped on the standard Odyssey Cruiser or any other ship, the 3-piece set bonus decreases the recharge time of all Odyssey console abilities. It also improves your Starship EPS, Starship Hull Plating, and Starship Armor Reinforcements Skills. Finally, this bonus also slightly increases your Odyssey's Turn Rate.
Actually the turn rate of the cstore variant is pretty good @ 10 on tribble server and higher i think with running the three consoles.
Pretty good at 10? Well, you'd manage ok in PvE (though, you can pretty much run anything in PvE and it'll work), wouldn't expect it to work well in PvP. Anyway, you can't use dual cannons on the Odyssey, sooooooo...
Also, you'd be far more effective just loading out your ship with 8 beams and a copy of FAW.
Cannons on big vessels is not a good idea. Using RC consoles takes away the chance to increase tanking or dps.
Why use an RC console when you can increase your weapon energy instead and fire beams from all directions? That is my view on that but then I'm a heavy PvP player, build until a ship wins in PvP and no confused cruiser with cannons will work.
I'm buying all 3 of the Odyssey, I think 10 c-store consoles for PvE will be huge fun, I'll even try it in PvP for laughs but I am concerned about something.
Are the Odyssey console abilities slighter weaker than most to compensate or are these more like ships for Tier 6 (level 60) which is why I want them?
