Hello,

I would like to know if Efficient Captain & Efficient BOff traits have been fixed, if there is a fix on the way or are they meant to remain the way they are?
From what i have read these used to be quite desirable traits giving a small but decent increase to the lowest power settings. Since the skills revamp all they give is a +1 power increase at best.

I was considering buying a Borg BOff but unless this has been fixed i don't believe paying 400c for a +1 power increase is worth it.

Thank you.

Last i heard they were all working, and the number of boffs with eff was supposed to have been expanded on, but i have not paid enough attention to know if that is true.

Step one on becoming a true STO master:

What can be bought on the cstore has a good change of being picked up on the Exchange.

Thank you for the quick reply but i think i should clarify my question. I know they are working but last time someone tested them they were only working at a fraction of what they used to do prior to the skills revamp. The new skill formula seems to have nerfed them into the ground, instead of giving +2 to +5 power increase (depending on your setup/settings) all you will now get is +1 at best. I wanted to know if this as been fixed to change them back to pre-revamp values or are they meant to remain this way.

I thought that was what the Master Key were made for.

Those are for sell on the exchange as well.

But search for liberated borg I believe it is. Both the klingon and the federation ones should be listed in their handy dandy crates.

No they actually go for about 3m. I know I would rather spend in game pretend money than real money when I can.

Not sure how your post helps the poster with his or her concern.

so here is the test I did.. I am going to use aux power because I have no skills points in it.

Details:
I removed all equipment pertaining to boosting aux power.
My toon does not have the efficient trait. Does my toon need the efficient trait to get increased BOFF stats?
I have 99 warp core efficiency and 99 warp core potential (any other skill factor into this besides aux perf which I don't use?)
I have no efficient BOFFs loaded into their stations

+25 power in aux, my power setting is 39/25.
+1 efficient BOFF = 39/25
+2 efficient BOFF = 40/25
+3 efficient BOFF = 41/25
+4 efficient BOFF = 41/25
+5 efficient BOFF = 42/25

+50 power in aux, my power setting is 59/50
+1 efficient BOFF = 59/50
+2 efficient BOFF = 59/50
+3 efficient BOFF = 60/50
+4 efficient BOFF = 60/50
+5 efficient BOFF = 61/50

Question.. have I thought of everything, and do these increases (where each BOFF is +7.5 to Warp Core Efficiency skill) actually reflect the power level increases I am receiving? Previously, you would get a full +5 power to the subsystem for 1 efficient BOFF.. now, you get +2 for two BOFFs at +25 power level and +2 with 5 efficient BOFFs at +50 power level....

let me know if I need to try something else--- when the trait and species respec is actually available.. I will be putting the efficient trait on my captain as I have had this character since open beta and didn't know what I was doing back then....
