Just as a Galor owner can purchase extra Spiral Wave disruptors to fill out their ship's weapon slots with extra Spiral Waves beyond the 4 that come with the ship I think it would be great to have a similar unlock attached to the Vesta to allow rear weapons that would synergize with the fore Aux DHCs.
If you get that then there will be people who will be asking for turrets that draw from weapons/engines to go with the quad cannons. I doubt they would add aux powered turrets as the Galor is a lockbox ship and is more of a unique thing to own, and onwing spiral wave disruptors (and having the ability to buy more) would be one of the bonuses for owning a galor.
I don't think he's asking for them for free or anything, just for turrets that draw of Aux power instead of Weapons power, so as to match up to the Vesta's Aux DHCs.
So we would have a all Aux ship? How about NO!
When the Vesta stats come out on the blog I was one of the people that pointed out the problems with the Aux DHCs , it seems those argument had some weight as they were restricted to the Vesta.
This is asking the issue that is limited to the Vesta would now run rampart, the creation of a all Aux ship is contrary to how ships are balanced over the power levels and how the Vesta is keep in check by not having enough power.
Its already pushing the Vesta can mount DHCs being the 3rd Non-Escort that is able to do so (the others being the Galaxy-X and the Atrox) but also that it can mount a special DHC that draws power from Aux but now being a ship that could simply IGNORE Weapons power level?
You want to fly a escort, go fly a escort ... the Vesta is a science ship and what you want is not "synergies" but rather A OVERPOWERED SHIP!
You do understand that the more weapons that you have that draw from aux the more your aux power will drop while firing them correct?
And do you understand the more Aux level you have, the more damage they will do?
I am sure you do otherwise you would not be asking for this.
I dont feel like doing a lesson so if you want to fly a Escort with all DHCs and turrets please do, asking for the Vesta to be a ship that can downright ignore weapon power and retain its offensive firepower is ignoring ship balance and if you are going to tell me "but Escorts and Cruisers can ignore Aux" I will say, yes. ... they can to a degree because they are unable to use abilities that use Aux, Science ships on the other hand CAN and its a simple matter of using a Battery when GW or TR comes out of cooldown and lose NOTHING.
If anyone here cannot see how BROKEN is a Vesta filled with Aux DHCs and Aux Turrets that uses SC right after GW III and TF II ... well ... what other ship allow you to use AoE hold, damage and drain powers and on top can use a AoE attack power that is drained from ONE source?
