The leech is good but you need to invest some points into flow capacitors, I hear the isometric charge can be powerful...but gonna want some particle generators for that.

I have isometric charge and magnetometric overload. Isometric isn't nearly a fraction as powerful as the AI NPCs that have it. It does some minor damage but it can't even take a breen frigate down to half. It's really only a finishing blow type of weapon, or for a bunch clustered together in a grav well.

One I love and use on every build I can: Magnetometric! It's a giant cone that pushes everything about 10k backwards. Unlike tractor repulsors you can't evasive and push it 20,30,40k out. It's a 1-shot burst at the moment of fire. it can stop probes on khitomer from getting to the gate, or stop drones on cure from reaching the Kang, or stop healer nanites on infected from reaching their transformer. Just make sure you're between your target and its objective, or you'll very quickly push the target TOWARD the thing you don't want it to reach!

What I would like, if I were to buy a ship just for the console, is aceton assimilator found on the Dragus. This works in a number of situation and I've seen others use it well.

I'm also liking Theta Vent from the Scourge. For ships that can't equip warp plasma it's a suitable replacement. Quite handy when you are running out of boff stations.

I also would like the barrier shield console on the Phalanx. That could have a number of defensive uses such as protecting Kang, or barricading a bunch of probes so they can't advance. Numerous practical uses also include saving the transport on fleet blockade missions.

As of yet I haven't tried any of these, but of the paid consoles, those are top 3 in order that interest me most.

Plasmonic leech hands down, it adds a passive energy gain and as many flow consoles you have (with full spec in flows) as bigger the gain is. Plus specing in flows is extremely cheap. Flows also improve the tet glider drain with 2 pieces from omega. You get over 15 bonus to all powers with full flow spec and 2 flow consoles, about 30 with 4 flow consoles. And this thing is always on, at least as long as you fire your energy weapons. IMO its the best console in the game so far.

Leech.

Aceton Assimilators' drain is broken, if that is what you are intending to get it for.

The radiation damage, however, is muy bueno. Great heavy torpedo and FAW deterrent if you've buffed the radiation damage with tactical skills.

That plasmonic leech! It keeps your weapons power UP even when firing multiple beam arrays, so every hit does more damage.

plasma leech is the ONLY console thats worth buying a ship u wont ever use just for the console and you can use it with multiple builds(on most of ur ships if not all) and therefore its the only tactical reason to roll and play KDF and spent some ZEN on KDF side!!!

Thats why if console is shared with other factions in the future then it wont be so good cause drain effects will be cancelled so it wont be so much worth buying.

Thats why it must remain unique on KDF side.

Cause feds got MACO shield for free that does the same thing only that it does it when ur underfire and not when firing ur guns but it doesnt consume a precious console slot like plasma leech....

So if feds get plasma leech along with their MACO shields(tractor pets,op sci,op escrots) its pretty much game over for KDF cause they will be stacking full power all over across the board while we will be struggling to maintain our basis power........

To be fair the MACO gain can't be boosted like the Plas Leech gain. Imo, plas leech has always been the most OP console for the passive gain. The issue is it helps make up for lacking Escort and Raider options compared to Fed Escorts.

You're correct, thing is though that a Fed leech + maco would be really crazy good. And also, with Maco, you don't need flow capacitors either, you get the bonus power anyways. there are pros and cons, but overall, I'd say Leech is a little too good, I hope though they'll leave it alone as is, lol.

I disagree. I DON'T want to buy it because I used all my spec points painstakingly creating my character to date. I don't want to have to do a full respec and lose an entire skill tree because I now have to put full points into 1 category just to get max flow for the plasmonic leech. That's too much of a requirement for me. I want to be able to swap out consoles without having to rebuild the entire character from scratch and re-equip my ship and my tactics because I had to move points around. Where do I take them from? Hull reinforcement? That changes how much damage I can tank. Shield power? That's suicide to remove from my BOP flying klink.

You have to build yourself around plasmonic leech, and to me that is why it's not an option. I build myself around a ship or certain tactics or class traits (i.e. my kdf sci I cater to skill points that help my sci power to the utmost). I won't do that all just for 1 console.
