# 1 Attack Pattern DOFFs
09-28-2012, 02:18 AM
ATM, I feel as if the most game breaking DOFF is by far the Attack Pattern DOFF.

This DOFF allows Escort pilots, and possibly other vessels, to have a virtually infinite duration on Attack Pattern Omega.

The ridiculous speed and defense boost, damage increase, and tractor immunity allowed to players with three of these DOFFs, imo, is game breaking. (For PvP.)

Players without these DOFFs simply CANNOT compete against those with (opinion)... If this is intended then so be it.

As a player without them, I find it almost impossible to kill those with the DOFFs. It is about as bad as not being able to break through stacked mitigation.

If there is a strategy that I am missing, please enlighten me.

The pattern doffs don't reduce APO below its global of 30s. This means that the uptime is limited to 50% which you can also get on every escort by simply equipping two copies of APO.

Well that isn't completely true .... the real way to go...

Is one Omega one Delta... this means you can have a perfect rotation of omega delta omega delta. Yes with out the doffs you can run 2 omegas with a delta in between.. however it won't be a perfect rotation and you do gain a boff slot.

Are they game breaking... in light of BFI doffs and new Extend doffs... and the ability to have 2 EPTx abilites act like 4.... na there not game breaking.

I'd also like to point that w doffs, you have few more secs of cool down than without doffs (in case of only apo). With doffs you have about 17-20 cooldown in between omegas, versus 2 apo when you have 15. But you get the benefit of running apo3. So IMO its a fair trade. Anyways those doffs are not as bad as the subnuc and bfi. Even with 2 bfi (and 3 attack patterns) I still get a full shield heal most of the time.

Whats the AP DOff called? STOwiki is broken for me and I'm having an issue finding more info for my records. Can you link it?
STO is very much an Adam One culture and completely inarticulate about Adam Two.

The way I "shop" exchange is look for purple (very rare) duty officer <whatever the branch is>, many times there are good alternatives, like before the flux of subnuc doffs, I paid 40 mil for one, when most were 100+. Also, just got an efficient tac lethean for less than 10k. Lol. It's worth looking on exchange every now and then.
