I've cleared out a max of 7 ships from a Tau Dewa run with a total initial damage of over 350K to all ships which all popped but one.
What's not true at all? I'm not understanding where we disagree.

You happen to fire on a large group of largely unmoving ships thereby causing a very large amount of damage. You very likely crit to do that much damage or they were all clustered in a very tight space well under 5k from you to pull that off. You can do the same during the Mirror Invasion STF btw. But you will find that much more difficult during a borg STF where you might be lucky to catch a couple of spheres and a gate in one shot, maybe even the cube if the moons align and the tides are just right.

That doesn't change the base damage it does.

If you did about 168k damage to the transformer that's very likely on a crit with the DoT completing in full. You cannot consistently crit with the Pulse. If not a crit I would love to know what you are doing that others are not. If it is a crit and you hit that hard again I would love to know what you are doing.

I do and almost always have seen about %25 destruction to transformers, but not much on the BigBad Cube at the end Sorry, can't remember that STF. Although other cubes and spheres generally don't take 'much' damage - maybe %10 if "I'm lucky" Generally I only use the secondary shield but keep the other consoles ready.

STF or ESTF ( its Infected: the conduit your referring too, or ISE or ICE for short). theres a very big difference between the two..

Definitely working nicely, no nerf noticed so far. This is from KDF Fleet Alert this evening and was all from one shot. Dragan is the Siege ship:

[11:34] [Combat (Self)] Your Thalaron Pulse deals 20172 (50627) Radiation Damage to Kar'Fi Battle Carrier.

[11:34] [Combat (Self)] Your Thalaron Pulse deals 52293 Radiation Damage to Kar'Fi Battle Carrier's officer Tortured Soul.

[11:34] [Combat (Self)] Your Thalaron Pulse deals 52508 Radiation Damage to Kar'Fi Battle Carrier's officer Tortured Soul.

[11:34] [Combat (Self)] Your Thalaron Pulse deals 52180 Radiation Damage to Kar'Fi Battle Carrier's officer Tortured Soul.

[11:34] [Combat (Self)] Your Thalaron Pulse deals 52001 Radiation Damage to Kar'Fi Battle Carrier's officer Tortured Soul.

[11:34] [Combat (Self)] Your Thalaron Pulse deals 51881 Radiation Damage to Kar'Fi Battle Carrier's officer Tortured Soul.

I have used it numerous times with 109 base PG and 120 AUX and I only hit a couple of times over 50k on multiple targets. Maybe you were lucky and all of their shields were down all in your facing. I try to do this on purpose by using CB and unleashing CV2 + TS3 with buffs then immediately hit RedMatter + EPtA, decloak, Secondary shields and engage the pulse. Then I carefully adjust he pulse to try and capture as many targets as possible since you can make very tiny adjustments.

Still typical damage is underwhelming and continues to be between 2-7% of EncDPS and on average it's really 3%. Average damage I see in the logs varies based on distance to target but it's anywhere from 60k base to as little as 5k base at the fringes of the pulse. Mid way it's typically 20-35k.

I don't know what you are doing that many of us are not.

Don't think I am doing anything unusual, I always drop a grav well into the group first. I have 6 points in PG and no PG consoles, I make sure I have APA and TAC Fleet available and switch power to full Aux. I do make sure singularity is fully charged at all times, hardly ever use it for anything else, so perhaps the overcharged one I use which does add to PG may be giving it an unusual boost.

The above is the best result I have got so far, but not unusual. Afterwards I ran a blockade and got similar results, the Grav well works well keeping the targets bunched up. It doesn't seem to hold the Spheres in ISE though so I save the Thalaron for the gate and tac cube, perhaps a tranny if someone blew the generator early.
