(Do you ever need shields?)
Are Pulse Phasers actually deflected that often,they supposedly have a higher bonus against ricocheting than armor piercing rounds even? (To be fair, Imp. Reflective Coating is much more common than Adamantite Alloys)I'll note one opponent-dependant item I hadn't realized until last week. Liir with Improved Reflectivity vs. my Pulse Phasers. I'd never noticed before that Pulse Phasers are classed as "lasers" and thus can make a really pretty reflective spray against improved reflective armor.
From inspiration I received in this thread I made a couple of Liir point defense cruisers with pulse phasers in every slot, from small to medium, was more fun (and effective) than it had a right to be
