# 1 Pets + attack pattern = ?
06-16-2013, 12:32 PM
Does attack patterns boost pet damage?

I fly a carrier and right now I am using HY torpedos but got to thinking if attack patterns give pets extra damage?

Also, does attack patterns effect exotic damage - mainly grav well?

Thanks

attack patterns only affect your ship. however i believe tactical fleet boost applies to pets.

Attack patterns such as Alpha and Omega will boost you Gravity Well. Unless they have changed it recently.

The only attack pattern that will improve pet damage is Beta but that is because it puts a damage resist debuff on the target. Some of the Tholian pets come with this already.

Attack patterns that place a buff on you do not affect pets. Attack Pattern Beta- which debuffs the target- will improve pet damage against that target, though, but the pets won't spread it further unless they're Mesh Weavers.

Skills can help your pets too like Slavers are mlModified by:Skills Starship Weapons Training Starship Projectile Weapons Starship Flow Capacitors Starship Hull Repair Starship Driver Coil. I Still want to know what Flow Capacitors do for Slavers, I suspect its tied to stealing crew.

Flight Deck Officers Boffs help your pets as well. Captain power Fire on my Mark helps as well, because it works like attack pattern beta.

I have beta pattern running more often.

Which means before using HY I'd have spike damage on occasion but now I am boosting damage more often and more types.

No idea why I didn't think of it until today
