# 1 Antiproton vs Chroniton
04-30-2013, 07:05 AM
Hey guys, I'm thinking of changing my Jem Bug build a little. I presently use all fleet antiproton DHC / turrets accx2 dmgx2 and was thinking of changing out one of the DHC and replacing it with either a fleet antiproton dual beam bank accx2 dmgx2 or the lobi chroniton dual beam array?? Which one is better??
Would using one of these with beam overload increase my spike damage?? Is the change worth it??
Thanks for any help guys.

If I remember correctly the Lobi Beam array has 0 acc mods.


I would go with the Fleet AP ACCx2 out of your two choices.

if you want flash/bling then id say the double rainbow beams of doom would be right up your way.

Chroniton beam bank has a chance to debuff turn rate and speed and has a [crtd] modifier (total 40% critical severity....20% from being Antiproton, 20% from crtd, I'd imagine).

Yeah, you're losing some accuracy, but at least you're getting the movement debuff proc and extra critical severity.

If you use tractors and BO, it'll be a nice combo.

The chroniton beam is terribly, terribly inaccurate in PVP.

If you've already got the tachyokinetic converter and are looking for a 2nd piece to temporal warfare set, get the temporal disruption device instead. It's like a tricobalt that doesn't suck and slows the crap out of your targets.

You have to hit first before you can CrtD or Debuff movement with a 2.5% chance to proc.

I believe it's been changed and no longer has any ACC mods.
