i run a tact HEC with either peregrins, danubes, or SRUs depending on the situation and i now have the ability to get the purple scorpions and i was wondering if anyone who has these can tell me if their worth it? i know they have a chance to pop out the plasma DoT which sounds pretty nice to me as it bypasses shields and short of stfs where alot of things have no shields pergs generally suck when it comes to shielded targets. some thoughts and advice would be greatly appreciated before i make a decision on if i wanna shell out the dilith for these. thanks ahead of time

I use them on my vesta. DPS wise they are close to the peregrines. I would say, that they are more like the combination of the peregrines and delta flyers.

also, they should deal more pure dps than the peregrines (and they do ). the plasma torpedos deal more dps than quantums, and since the peregrines use phasers, dps wise the proc on the plasma cannons also will give an edge to them.

and I would like to mention, that the scorpions are easier to keep track of, than the peregrines, because of their engine trails, and general look and size

so if you use fighters a lot, I suggest you get the peregrines, but if you rarely use them, they do not worth the upgrade, we are talking about a few hundred dps difference.

Hilarious when paired with the Omega torpedo launcher.

However, Peregrines appear to be more nimble, and (anecdotaly) can bring their DCs to bear much more easily than Scorpions, which make Peregrines significantly better in my experience as Intercept mode craft. Combine that with the ability to proc the phaser shield disable makes Peregrines still a better choice.

Personally I'm going to be getting the T5 version of the Scorpion Fighters as these will be "Elite" pets. It will be a while before my fleet reaches Science T5 in our Starbase so those pets are a ways off.

The T3 Scorpions are the equivalent to the Peregrines you get from the Dilithium store. So I'd save my Dil and marks if you already have those slotted.

The T3 Layout:

PVE: Peregrine > Scorpion
PVP: Scorpion > Peregrine

Not sure if you PVP so I won't get into the details.

As far as T5 goes same as above, but the T5 Scorpions will be better than the Dilithium store Peregrines.

Those are the factors I've considered myself.
I'll stop kicking that horse when the bugs fixed. Until then as a paying consumer, I will voice my opinion.

Do scorpion fighters cloak while fighting?

Strangely i found the purple delta flyer to give the most dps.

-= ISE: 12:19 -=- CSE 12:41 -=- KASE 11:59 -=- HSe 8:06 total =-
-= KAGE 5:43 =-
[7:07] [Combat (Self)] Your Dual Disruptor Banks - Overload II deals 123086 (41096) Disruptor Damage(Critical) to Assimilated Carrier.

I think that could be to do with the transphasics, every time I'm fighting them they seem to go straight through my shields every time
