You can Disable Donatra's Cloak, by using "Target Aux Subsystems" which Leaves her paralysed for a few moments. I've beaten her like that a few times. Because she can't cloak, It allows everyone keep the damage up, and prevent her from healing. It can go down quicker than the Carrier in CSE.

As a VoQuv Carrier captain, I can say that you can fly out of the Range of the cone. The Issue is that half the time, is where I have to run to. Given the acceleration of the carrier, I start moving the instant she cloaks. I often end up nowhere near her, when she fires. Just to make it clear, most Carriers are "slow" and don't turn well. But hey, when your Pets are doing more damage than other captain's ships, I don't mind taking a few seconds to bring my ships weapons on the target. (I think My BoPs can Solo a side, I know they helped me and another player beat the other 3 players in bringing down a side.)

I heard this, but I've not seen it happen ever, if you have two Engineering Captains, with Extend Sheilds on each other, they can survive taking a hit from Donatra.

But yes, some times I do think I've got a way with it, when BOOM!

I used to think the cone of doom was misleading.

However, it may be a perspective issue.

Last time I ran this with my fleet, I got caught when I thought myself out of the cone......however a fleety who was much further away saw me inside it, if barely.

It's a one time anecdote, so have someone test it with you to confirm.

Oh, and one other thing......referring to the STF as khi space doesn't make you look all-knowing and leet. And disparaging someone for asking what you meant doesn't make you come across as broody and interesting.

Pot, meet kettle. Or is this more of a glass house moment?

"Khi Space" is not the accepted term for the STF, nor is "Cone of Death." If you want to imply that only "experts" will understand you, stick to the accepted terminology.

You said that you've noticed two problems, but you only list 1 in the body of your post. "p.s." is short for "post script," which implies that the main body of your post is finished. If you can't be arsed to pay attention to the contents of your own post it's likely that you apply the same standards to KASE.

It's the little things that get you, see? If you're going to be a turd to somebody who gave you a genuine response you really should aim for subject-verb agreement.

Now, back on topic. Donatra's thalaron weapon is a good PvE example of how to practice dealing with a PvP DHC escort: turn into it. While it's charging head straight for her and get behind her.

Problem solved with a little piloting instead of asking for an already easy fight to be nerfed.

But if you say 'cone of death' to yourself in the same voice as the animated Tintin adventures used to start with.....Hergets Cone of Death!.........its much more fun.

The Jem hadar Antiproton sweep is pretty effective at Locating Donatra when she is cloaked.

People think they are out of the cone by following the lines. Those lines don't show up very well on the cone's sides, especially at a distance relative to the scimitar where the cone widens the further you are from it. You can easily miss them and you die thinking you're outside of it. This worsens if you're on a low graphic card.

Also a recent patch, probably not older than a month, improved her maneuverability so she can move under cloak to position herself to kill the aggroer with her cone of death or torpedo spread of doom.
Forum fun murdered. No longer in service.
