The whole point of an engineer is to make sure tacs in escorts doing teh pew pew dont go pop.
gotta love this logic.
be a tac or a slave to them.
-star trek online minimum DPS requirement
vortex probe hp = 62365 x3 = 187095. speed = 0.8 km/s(about) giving about 25 seconds to kill them while in range, this means you need an effective DPS output of 7484, or your build is a failure.
So much so that a good Beam Fire at Will will do more damage.
The only reason Scatter Volley does more damage in the first place is because Dual Heavy Cannons do that much more damage than Beam Arrays baseline and that it's less likely to 'waste' shots on targets that are immune/immediately heal up any and all damage.
Yep. The amount of shots that miss as well is immense.
The worst is when someone is specced for feedback pulse, CSV + FBP= ******it moments
But the heals thing is true though isnt it. We do the damage, they do the healing, the scis do the non rude version of stripping and weakening.
