Counter Command weapon set 2 piece bonus gives 7.5% final damage.

Nukara and Romulan weapon sets 2 piece bonuses gives 7.5% base damage.

Cryptic should equalize them so they all give 7.5% final, instead of base.

either that, or simply name the buff right in the first place. Make a distinction in the discription between base dmg buff or bonus dmg buff.

I dunno exactly what you mean with "base" damage, but i thought the jem hadar set and the romulan / reman one gives you 16%, not 7,5%? or the weapon set gives you 7,5 and the deflector/engine/shield set gives you 16?

Description changes would work for other sets like Breen shield/engine/deflector set, as 31% final instead of base damage would be way too high. But the weapon sets that give 7.5% should all be changed to final, as 7.5% base is essentially nothing, and there's no reason why one of them would be final while the other equivalent sets for other energy types are base.

Jemhadar is shield/engine/deflector, not weapon, and it's base. Romulan weapon set is 7.6%, actually, not 7.5% or 16%. Typo.

This is where the confusion of this unevenly done system sets in.

That JH polaron set bonus? It's a base damage boost in the same way as TAC Consoles.

But the bonus from Counter-Command for Phaser/Disruptor 2 piece bonus is a "final bonus" which magnifies everything. It means a far, far larger deal even though the number in the descriptor makes it seem a smaller bonus than that JH polaron boost.

The game is completely uneven in how it handles bonuses and completely obtuse in telling you what does what.

Edit it again. Romulan/Reman engine/shield/deflector set doesn't give dmg bonus.
