Re: STO: are starship phasers worth a darn?
I'm not a big Tac player but my strategy for my Tac chars is to use Phasers until high enough to use Anti-Proton weapons. At the upper levels, some enemies wouldn't be affected by the subsystem shutdown and in PvP most players would have resistance against phasers.
