I recently had made a discovery that disappointed me greatly. Until just a few weeks ago, I did not know that CSV had a limit to the number of targets it hit. I finally noticed this in Khitomer, when I attacked a cluster of 4 probes, and I was only killing 3, and then had to AA the last one down.
This led me to wondering... what abilities in STO do 'true' AoE damage - that hits all enemies within the area of effect? I know that Gravity Well does - in fact, shortly after the aforementioned discovery, I went on to purchase a Vesta, and built a rather nice sci captain. However, the problem with GW, other than the numerous bugs that affect the skill, is that its a DoT, and takes forever to kill and medium to large vessels. And that's just in PvE; in PvP, it's nigh useless.
I want to have a character that can deal a ton of (preferably burst) damage to an unspecified number of targets in a cluster. How would I go about doing so? Would I need to use the Kumari?
