Hmmm, what shall we call you? Delta simply won't do anymore. Attack Pattern Derp? Attack Pattern Doyouseewhatididthere? Attack Pattern Donthatetheplayer...

Really, this doff should have been a Vorta.
This is at least partially offset by the fact that you're buffing them. You're not JUST giving them increased threat gen.

But yeah.... Vorta: WANT!
HAIL HYDRA!

Not sure yet need to test, but I kinda like what I am seeing.

Really like the Assault Squad Officer - Space - "Armed Boarders" changes.

Neat, to the point of perhaps resurrecting this power

Biologist - Space - "Scrambled Readiness"

Bit concerned as there was a fairly respected gentleman's agreement in regards to the use of this power in PvP.

Diagnostic Engineer - Ground - "Perfect Shielding"

Not sure entirely. Great for PvE. PvP, bit concerned. "You can use shield drain or shield penetration abilities to overcome the buff" - which would mean what if you are a TAC or ENG?

Actually don't do that.

There seems to be little diffence between this and other powers like placate, confuse, mask signature, etc.

Allowing teammates to put omega on me means I can tank a lot easier.


Also I'm having trouble keeping aggro away from some of my high dps fleetmates despite the threat gen console, 89 in threat control, and flying an escort. With all the higher criticals, can threat control be re-evaluated? I'd rather not switch to AP just to have a better chance of taking aggro away from a few players

Whenever you activate Shield Recharge, you have a small chance of rendering the recipient nearly immune to all shield damage for several seconds.


* For this officer, it is a 20% chance and the buff lasts 6 seconds.
* This ability sets your Shield Resistance to 99%, but Bleedthrough calculations are not affected.
* This means that incoming damage will still apply a small amount of hitpoint damage, but your shields will remain active longer.
* Your Bridge Officers will also be able to make use of this effect, if using Shield Recharge.
* Enemy abilities that damage shields directly (like Tachyon Harmonic) will still function normally - the affected shield will not have extra resistance to this type of drain.
* In PvP, an enemy that has this buff will appear to have a bubble around them. You can use shield drain or shield penetration abilities to overcome the buff.
* 20% is anything but "a small chance" for such a total overpowered nonsense to happen. Can we use 3 of that doff? will it help with the chances to proc even?

* 6 seconds duration is quite a bit long on ground too.. i somewhat expect a tac with that bubble up to wipe half if not all of a pug-team out with total impunity.

Lets see about counters..

- Drain abilities "like tachyon harmonic"... the only decent sci kit with tachyon harmonic that is being used in pvp is the borg medical analyzer.. the one thats not dropping anymore.

- Melee attacks -- melee isn't seen that much in pvp, a shotgun is almost always a better choice for close quarter combat.

so we are down to lunge, nades, mines, bomb and mortar spam.. most of that except lunge is easy to dodge so it shouldn't be hard to stay alive the whole 6 seconds of ubahness.

eh Tacs already are uber powerful with their stacking cloak on the ground and super buffs.
stop your whining it actually gives engineers a chance on the ground. to actually TANK!
A sci shouldnt be the ground tank but are by default. this will balance it a bit.

There is no "stacking cloak", that got removed ages ago. The issue with perfect cloak on ground is that the covert trait has been made to powerfull.

The issue with that doff in my opinion is that shield recharge is a targeted ability, im not so much worried about engineers with bubbles to tank a bit more occasionally on a random proc in combat (although i find 20% to high) but more about engineers that buff their cloaked tac buddy on the roof with that.. kit swapping also cuts the shield recharge cd into half.

Aside of that engineers could already tank well before.. rpts, recharge and if you really need a third, maco recharge do a fine job.
