# 1 Thalaron Pulse ?
07-22-2013, 11:00 AM
Why is the Thalaron pulse so weak? If you get any where near Donatra's ,its all over. But the

war birds pules does about 2% damage. Its a waste of 12 seconds. Why pay that $ to get a

ship that does a 12 second light show? ITs Very disappointing . Can something be done about

this ?

The Scimitar is OP as it is and the Thalaron radiation is actually pretty good in PVE and is not meant to be used in PVP anyway

It also depends on how you are speced.

Thalaron Plse depends on Auxillary Power and Partical Generators (Skill Tree).

You can slot Partical Generator boosting consoles if you dont want to respec. You could also pop an auxillary battery jsut before acticating the pulse and see if that improves the outcome.

For max effectiveness, you'd want to spec heavily into Patical Generators and run alot of power to Aux. but, you'll ahve to give up somewhere else... not sure how your specced today, and what class.

As the previous poster pointed out, its not much of a PvP tool due to the long charge up time (and you are vunerable while its charging (popped a couple scims trying to first this off,... they cant move).

The Scimitar is OP?? paper thin hull, weak shields, weak power train, weak structural integrity, weak biofunction, and a useless thaleron canon..
Calling the scimitar OP is like calling a volvo a muscle car.. Now, your federation escorts.. THOSE can be made easily OP.. The Scimitar, not so much..

Hold off on getting the third. give them time to correct the thing. After flying the corvette around all morning using the weapons and ( usable ) consoles from my scimitar, its quite obvious that the scimitar has a multitude of design flaws and problems that need to be corrected..

In the right hands the Scimitar can be a formidible beast, on the right team (cross heals etc) it can be darn near impossible to kill... but that can be said of virtually any ship.

I do have to agree on the escorts, they could stand to be a little less tanky.

I just finished KASE, a team mate has the scimitar with the thalaron pulse, it couldnt even

take out a few probes. Also team mates pulse didnt even scratch Donatra. Its almost

laughable.

well most people don't realize that the pulse is based on aux power and it's exotic damage so particle generators boost it also. If you're running 15 aux and no particle gen points then, well, good luck on doing anything with it. Mine can almost 1 hit most probes and does a good chunk of spheres in KASE, and what the pulse misses its DOT finishes off. The DOT is well over 2k each tic.
