I thought this was an interesting combo, worth bringing up, so I thought I'd

Refracting Tetryon turrets and DHCs, plus DEM, plus DEM passive from Nukara rep, plus the normal tetryon proc along with the extra tetryon damage proc, plus Omega Graviton Amplifier proc, plus tetryon consoles (possibly buffing the extra tetryon damage), your normal slew of buffs, a CSV, a hold/slow, the new Nukara set(s) probably adding more tetryon damage, plus the tier 5 rep power doing chain-tetryon damage, plus Iso charge, and maybe more stuff I'm forgetting.



But can anybody say: "AoE killer"? I mean really though, that's an insane amount of damage, including a TON of energy bleed through right to hull. add in some transphasic torp spreads for even more bleed through powah.

Obviously nothing is finalized, but we still have like 3 and a half weeks until LoR, so might as well over-speculate on things we don't have yet and cannot make any real judgments on until it gets here.

There's no such thing as refracting cannons... Only beams...

They'll be like the Romulan Plasma...the various store unlocks and Dil prices. There will be more than just beams. There are already more than just beams on Tribble.

Yeah, I just read the latest in the other thread. @_@

That's a hell lot of aoe, definitely, just no synergy with my plasma-infused consoles.

There are no cannons, only Zuul.



But even if there weren't, even normal tetryon DHCs and turrets with all that other stuff would be pretty nasty against folks who weren't expecting it.

I wonder how far can the refractions scatter? They seem to hit the closest target first (and doesn't seem to randomly select targets) so that means 1 alpha strike could possibly take out an escort and his healer (assuming they can hit anything in 10km like a normal weapon).

Anyone know if the refractions benefit from the Plas sci consoles? Stacking all plas-flavored Flow Caps consoles on top of all that, draining shields while hitting hull then leaving a blue ball of tetryon plasma...

...ooooh the tingles.

And if you spec into Particle Gens for Isometric, plus use that Nukara console set (which also buffs both particle gens and tetryon damage), so that way your plasma procs will do even more damage each as well!

I noticed in one of the other topics a screenshot of the refractioning cannons. So there are beams AND cannons. However, the jumping to closest enemy damage is about half the tetryon damage compared to the tetryon proc. So it will only add a small amount, and not even to your target. Maybe with scatter volley and FAW you can do additional damage to several targets and your "main" target because of the jumping.

But im curious to see if DEM and DEM rep passives would also buff the jumping damage.

And also in my opinion, tetryon and (direct) hull damage don't combine very well together. That would be plasma in this case.
