This console tends to be under used in PvE - probably most Fed players don't know much about it, but it's very useful for quite a few instances:

NWS
Elite STFs (especially with EPTE using Spheres)
Mirror Event
Starbase Fleet Defense and Fleet Alert
etc.

It's also exceptionally powerful in PvP.

Base console:

90 degree arc
-66% Speed for 8s
-80% turn rate for 8s
15% chance to take impulse engines offline


W/ 50 Aux & 6 Ranks in Graviton Gens (84 total skill)
-66% Speed for 15s
-80% turn rate for 15s

Nearly double the duration!
Excellent!


W/ 125 Aux and 6 Ranks in Graviton Gens (84 total skill)
-66% Speed for 25.4s
-80% turn rate for 25.4s

3x the duration for some skill investment and 1 aux battery which you can always have available.

W/125 Aux and 6 Ranks in Graviton Gens, 5x Purple MK XII Graviton Consoles, Borg Deflector and Borg Uni Console (264 total skill)
-66% Speed for 50.9s
-80% turn rate for 50.9s


That's more than 6x the base duration!!


So even if you can't go whole hog, just a basic battery + 6 ranks in Graviton gens will be enough to give you a nice 25s AoE Debuff.


Enjoy!

Only 50 seconds? I got Graviton Pulse all the way up to 60 seconds.

Good exploiting.

Fleet marks FTW!!!

I've never used it in PvP, but I don't mind using it in PvE.

NPCs don't have feelings, and they don't care if we roflstomp the stuffing out of them in the most efficient manner possible.

It can be extended that long? I guess I'll have to pull that out of storage for some trial runs of my own. Even without the skill spec for it, the Aux boost and the right deflector and Borg console should help...
Please stop exponential holding/reputation costs!

Exactly, you don't need tons of spec for it.

Borg Deflector + Borg Console alone will give you a total of 39 spec into Grav Gens, and even a basic Aux battery will be on 2 min CD - so you can always have it ready for when you want to use Grav Pulse (3 min Rech).

That will probably get you a solid 20s debuff.

Same.. Grav pulse got the same response from me - put it on one ship, tested it in a friendly pvp, removed it and now its languishing in the bank

I do love grav buffed chronitons though...25s of that and it makes life a lot easier (provided they sci team and erase it at the cost of a wasted tt - or they let it run, crippling their defence scores)
