# 1 Flow Capacitors and BFI Doffs
09-28-2012, 06:16 AM
Should the heal from the Brace For Impact (BFI) Doffs be effected by skill points in Flow Capacitors? Flow Capacitors increase the heal significantly even though there doesn't seem to be a good reason for it.

The BFI doff is going to be receiving a pretty significant change very soon. In the future, the shield heal will benefit from Shield Emitters instead of Flow Capacitors.

Meh,I believe it when I see it. These changes should NERF bfi doffs, NOT buff them even further.

some times the proc from this ability can be quite underwhelming, and some times it can grant invincibility, i hope both types of procs don't get nerfed

The simple fact of the matter is that the BFI Doff has been proven to be one of the top 5 healers of any PvE or PvP content in logs I've been able to examine.

That's way too effective for a single piece of equipment.

It will be tuned, and that tuning will result in reduced effectiveness. It will still be considered a worthwhile officer to have equipped, but no longer a no-brainer/must-have.

it along with the borg procs regularly cause tactical escorts to be the top healers in matches. healing is really out of hand thanks to these 2 things, on ships that put no emphases on healing!

tinkering with this will have the single largest effect on game play of anything you have talked about doing today, including the snb doff, be very careful tuning this one.

I'm entirely in favor of Shield Distribution doffs getting an reevaluation! Without a doubt, they are currently extremely strong.

The same reason the ole Voldemort exploit needed to be gotten rid of. It's too powerful. Heck, I have some purple BFI DOFFs I use in PvE, and I get they are far too good.

So they should still be good, but not ridiculously good.

Besides, it's a bit late now, they already know.
