I just completed in defense of Romulus mission and i noticed something with the rare engineering BOFF reward i got. Not going to include the BOFFs name in case people who havent done the mission yet dont want to know (spoilers).
The name of the trait is Basic Space Warfare Specialist, bonuses are listed below. It says that it is a unique trait, so does that mean only this one person has it? there isnt another BOFF somewhere that has a Superior version of it?
I'd had him on my roster since picking him up but hadn't spent any XP on him or used him at all. When I finally decided to make some changes to take advantage of the T'Varo-R's strengths, I used D'vex, swapped in EPtS to give me two hull heals (since shield heals aren't terribly helpful when you're always cloaked), and didn't even realize he had such a nice passive bonus.
I've been gone for the game for a long time. So from my perspective... this guy is AMAZING. I remember when we dreamed of having BOFFs with useful traits like this. If anything the BOFFs had made me addicted to Romulans.
This guys traits are super helpful on ground missions, you actually notice the defense bonus IMHO.
