At the moment am running disruptors with the terren beam array, but the more I read, the more am beginning to think its not the type of beam array that matters it's more the prefix and sufixes that matter, Now i know that antiproton is king due to the extra crit, but I see people running the set up I have at the moment with disruptors & terren beam array with minimal dps loss
So my question is a simple one, are phasers as bad as people make out I always wanted to use em as I like to keep my toons "fluffy" but am always worryed about nerfing myself so if I got say
Advanced Fleet Dual Phaser Beam Bank Mk XII [Dmg]x3 [CrtD]
Dual Phaser Beam Bank Mk XII [Dmg]x3 [Pen]
Would i be really nerfing myself over disruptors & terren beam array ?
She was fury, she was wrath, she was vengeance
I use phasers and I do just fine.
I only use phasers though because its canon to starfleet! On my KDF I use disruptors for the same reason.
to date, the current ranking of weapons type in pve is:
there isn't much loss between the types... maybe like 3-8% for each from the previous rank, but that difference adds up the better quality your equipment gets.
I based it from observations on community popularity (i.e. reddit), usage by known heavy hitters on youtube, and my own personal experience when I was OCD on finding something that worked.
