# 1 Singularity Overcharge And BO
06-09-2013, 07:55 PM
doesnt work. WHY? works with faw and plain beams.

this is a slap in the face to all offensive style players, as no singularity specials do any burst. and plasma shockwave is ridiculous. can we get some feedback on these seemingly lackluster powers?

captian with critH + crithD trait, 5 boffs with superior operative, and the best cloak in the game is not enought for your ofensive style?

Um... It does not work because Singularity Overcharge basically makes all your beams do Beam Overload (Probably 1) and all your Cannons do Cannon Rapid Fire (Likewise probably 1 maybe higher at lvl 5). So doing a beam overload while using it would be redundant.

Have you not used Sing overload... it locks out all energy weapon buffs. It is pretty much all the energy buffs in one skill... that doesn't draw power.

Work it into you build if you plan to use it... you can get away with out always having 2 copies of buffs ect.

On a tac roll tac init to keep ONE copy of faw / rapid fire / beam overload ect... going....

When tac init runs out... use Sing Overload... then use the Sing capacitor console, run your energy buff again, by the time that buff runs out you should be able to Sing Overload again.

At the end of that I bet your Tac Init would be back up again to start the roll over again.

Learn to use it... or use the Sing Jump... or just stick with the defense buffs like Quanrum Absorb.

The Sing skills are insanely good.

There's an issue where if you use FAW, you can hit SO and one of two things will happen:

1) You wasted SO and your Singularity Charge, because it will wear off before FAW finishes.
2) SO will kick in for whatever remaining time it has after FAW wears off.

It's not a case that you can FAW/SO.

As noted, if you SO - it will lockout your FAW/BO/CRF. So you can't SO/FAW either.

And for some reason, I felt the need to add the following: do ra me fa so la ti do!

Same thing happens with overload and rapid fire....

Simple fix.

Know what the H your doing. lol

If you plan to use Sing Overload... Don't use it until your current energy buffs expire.

With a level 5 charge... you can engage the second a Faw/rapid ends... and have Faw/Rapid back up pretty much just as the Overload is ending. Its pretty awsome for sustained dmg if you use it properly and don't just mad bash buttons.

Show me one good romulan tactical warbird. Romulan ships are nice for hybrid builds like a sci-cort, but there is no romulan ship which is in the offensive nearly as effective as a jhas or andorian.
