Curious, are the advanced jem'hadar hanger pets you buy in the dil store any good? Unfortunately I have not been lucky in acquiring the jem attack ship via lock box, and have pretty much given up on that. I've heard that if you have that ship, you get access to the better hanger pets. So are the advanced ones any good, or worth the dil they cost? Im currently using the ultra rare scorpion hanger pets that you get via the rep system. thx for your feedback!
If you already have the Ultra Rare Scorpions, don't give them up for almost anything. They're the most powerful fighters, and the plasma burn gives them significant bleedthrough as well. A few of the other hangars could be useful for their own special abilities, but if you just want a damage booster Elite Scorpions are the way to go (at least until we get Elite versions of the other hangars through fleet starbases).
The torpedo spam from regular fighters has just as much (negligible) shield bleed as the Jem fighters. Since DEM applies its bonus damage on each hit, it's only worth something when you have a lot of hits, e.g. cannons on rapid fire. The fighters have a pulse cannon, firing one single shot with very low rate of fire. If you want shield-penetrating damage from your pets, Scorpions put their target into a permanent state of being on fire. It stacks quickly.
Jem fighters are quite literally pointless in both PVE and PVP.
Which is weird because the NPC Jem fighters have a standard cannon, quantum torpedo, and rapid fire. That would have been fine. Then add a turret and DEM for the advanced version.
