# 1 Fleet Embassy Romulan Boffs
01-19-2013, 03:50 PM
First off I can confirm for anyone wondering that since the last patch the critical chance bonus is working on the romulan boffs, my male rare tactical is giving me the +3.8% it's supposed to. Since we can't trust the tool tips on the romulan boffs before purchase I have a few questions for those who have bought some of the other ones.

1. Is the critical chance bonus available on all the romulan boffs or just the tactical ones?

2. Is the female rare tactical boff really just a 2.5% bonus or is that just a typo copied from the uncommon version.

3. Does the critical bonus stack if you have more than one?

4. If anyone has made it to tier 3 recruiting do the Very Rare boffs have a higher bonus or is it the same as the rares. The tool tip doesn't specify, other than its just "Superior Subterfuge" like the rares.

I'm sure I am not the only one wondering about this, would be nice if we could get complete and accurate information posted on these boff in game. Thanks.

I cannot answer your other questions, but I can tell you about this one:

Nobody has reached tier 3 recruitment yet, and it will probably be quite a awhile before anybody does still.

1) it appears jsut the tactical ones. if this changes im going to end up buying 2 more

2) typo i assume

3) it stacks i have bought 3 tactical boffs and i am sitting at 15.7% critical chance
(lets keep this on the hush hush )
4) what the other guy said. but i am also wondering if the purple boffs have 5% crit chance?

From another thread, there was mention of a total of four traits - two space traits - where the RomBO could only have one of the two...

Subterfuge: Increases the effectiveness of cloak and damage buff the ship gains after decloaking.

Covert Operative: Increases critical hit chance (space) and decreases cloak cool down.


So if those are Tac RomBO traits, what are the Eng and Sci RomBO traits?

The rarity of the BOFF does not matter but the quality of the ability does - just like any other boff ability. Superior Covert Operative is 3.8% while regular is 2.5%. Now if the female is supposed to be (or is) Superior Covert Operative I don't know as I haven't bought it but the % matches the name.

The blue females used to have Superior Covert Operative, but apparently don't anymore. It's not a typo, they really only give 2.5%. Which sucks because I have two and now it looks like I should've bought males instead. Hopefully this will get fixed in the next patch.

The purples don't have Covert Operative at all, they have Superior Subterfuge. I presume this is also a bug.

Sci and Eng boffs all have Subterfuge at various levels.

Nah, our T3 Recruitment upgrade finished last week and our T3 Diplomacy upgrade has 6d left on the timer.

I bought the purple female tactical, male tactical, male science, and male engineer. They're all exactly what they say... Superior Subterfuge. Too bad, I was hoping for there to be a typo or something in there, but it looks like we're stuck with rare male tacticals for now.
