After much anticipation I procured one of those shiny new threat scaling embassy consoles.
The Emitter Array mk X -th pla.
So here's the problem. The plasma proc doesn't work with my Andorian Kumari Escort running the Andorian phasers. Seriously I have never seen the plasma proc trigger in the 2 weeks I've been using it.
Also, my DPS is dragged down massively when it's equipped.
One of my fleet mates has the same ship with the same phasers but lesser phaser relay consoles, he doesn't have a -th console as yet.
With the threat scaling console equipped on my ship he places higher than me in fleet actions 100% of the time.
With it unequipped I place higher than him 100% of the time.
This is observably true, I've reproduced it many times.
I am lucky to get 3rd place on Gorn or KSF with the console equipped and usually get 1st with it off.
The threat reduction seems to work but I am wondering if it's working because DPS is greatly reduced?
Anyone else noticed a DPS drop with the console equipped?
Thanks for the reply tc10b, makes sense and just means I need to lose the console on the Fleet Actions and put it back on for the STF's.
Not a big deal.
Does this apply to carriers too? What I mean is do the fighters get the threat reduction as well?
The reason I ask is that another fleet mate of mine has the Jem'hadar carrier, uses a -th console and if I use my -th console he beats me in fleet actions.
This leads me to believe his fighters' aggro is unmodified by the console while still counting towards his score?
