Ok, I've tried searching the forums and can't find an answer for this. I am running an all torpedo boat...transphasics currently but considering additional projectile options for my T'varo.

Part of the breen 2 pc. set bonus (Superconducting Phase Channels) on my ship gives me +32.5 transphasic projectile damage.

Is this number a percentage? A flat damage bonus? An increase to a certain skills? If so, how would those skills calculate to actual damage.

I wonder because I am trying to calculate if it's better to have the Breen set or go with a set that gives a 25% torpedo damage (such as the adapted MACO i.e. Honor Guard).

Thanks for any insight.

Try the breen set with the transphasics and then the tranphaics without and see what the differance is in damage would be an easy way to find out, especialy considering the set is free. Also you can add transphasic tac consoles for extra hits. But It might not be a percentage of the base damage but a skill increase when using transphasic. Bt regardless the other sets are better in other ways and might be the better choice.

+32.5 Transphasic projectile damage gives a better damage boost then 25% torpedo damage. Also the adapted MACO does not boost mines or the Transphasic Cluster torp. The numbers are a percentage boost but it does not work as you think. You do not get +30% or 25% to total damage.

I've run a 3-piece Breen on a few ships while grinding marks for the other sets and I can tell you it does make a big difference, especially with the cluster mine torpedoes, those do a ton of damage with the 2-piece bonus compared to without it. I was glad they actually gave the Breen shields a bit of a graphics change.

Considering that Transphasics are the worst Torp in the game and that the Honor Guard set will boost every torp type you have + give you additional power bonuses which are very nice for Romulans; I believe the choice to go with that set is clearly a winner. Get the Engine and Deflector but keep the Omega Shield.

Transphasic + Breen 2 piece set is a good combo. I equipped all transphasic tac consoles and mixed, transphasic, rapid fire and breen cluster is awesome. Add a quantum launcher and some torpedo doffs and it is even better.

With all buffs I have instagibbed cruisers.

One tac character I have flies the fleet defiant with 5 transphasic launchers and 2 cluster torps and 5 transphasic consoles plus the breen engine and deflector.

Just yesterday I was testing torp spread 3 vs hy3 with different torp modifiers against a healer recluse. He was in aw that a few times when I buffed up I was able to 1 shot him a few times with the cluster and torps. I mean a fully spec'd healer with the highest hull points of any ship.

Not bad for the worst torpedoes in the game huh?

To answer the OP's question, I *think* it is like adding 32 to projectile skill, except that it only applies to transphasics. If you can find the fomula for projectile skill points then you might be able to come up with some comparisons. Publish the data if you get that far, please.

What were your results of spread3 vs hy3?

Spread3 with CrtD x3 torps when it crits will do the same dps as a HY3 with Accx3 torps. The problem is with Accuracy on the spread and when it misses.

For PVE the spread is nice to hit multiple targets and Acc is less of a concern

For pvp it's more difficult since the TS3 with those torps will miss more but will help clear spam and make up the difference on other targets. Very effective against cruisers and science but not as much against speedy escorts.

Pros and cons for both in pvp but pve the spread is clear winner
