SO I have possibly simple and possibly complex question to ask about two skills that seem like they would have excellent synergy, but before I invest in trying to get ahold of them, I'd like to know if they actually work together the way they look like they would in the description.

If you look at these two ships mastery Starship Traits, you will see that one increases the cost of energy weapons by 50%, and the other reduces the cost by 50%.

One increases firing cycle by 20%, and the other increases accuracy by 50, and critical hit chance by 10%.

So if both of these abilities were active at the same time, would the weapon power costs cancel each other out? As in, weapon power cost does not change, but you still get the other bonuses?

Or, as I am afraid to find out, would the weapon power cost buff or debuff come from whichever skill was most recently activated, rather than both work simultaneously?

If it matters in the advice you have for me, my current power level setup is as follows:

Weapons: 125

Shields: 80

Engines: 64

Auxiliary: 50
