Starting in the next Infinity Promotion, we’re adding some new high-end recipes to the game. The components for these recipes can be found in Elite TFOs or in the Infinity Promotion Research and Development Pack, and both components and crafted items can be traded on the exchange. The new recipes come in two flavors: Advanced Consoles and Advanced Batteries. The batteries are straightforward upgrades to existing batteries and are described below. Both can be crafted in the R&D menu using the new component items.

Advanced Consoles

Advanced Consoles are a new sort of console that works much like a normal one, with one exception: Advanced Consoles of one profession cannot be mixed with Advanced Consoles from another profession. So, while you could mix and match Advanced Science Consoles, you could not equip one Advanced Science Console and one Advanced Engineering Console at the same time. The four new Advanced Consoles, two Science and two Engineering, are described below. We’re also adding the Advanced designator to the existing Vulnerability Locator and Exploiter Tactical Consoles to inform how they interact with the new consoles.

Just as the existing now-Advanced Tactical Consoles provide bonuses to Critical Chance or Severity, the new Advanced Consoles provide bonuses to performance in a way that scales similarly – the more a Captain collects gear that complements the Advanced Consoles, the more benefit those Advanced Consoles provide, just as it is with the Vulnerability Locators and Exploiters. The new Advanced Consoles can support a wide variety of mods, so Captains can craft an Advanced Engineering Console with EPG or an Advanced Science Console with Phaser Damage.

    Spoiler: show
  • Console - Advanced Engineering - Isomagnetic Plasma Distribution Manifold
    The most straightforward of the bunch, this console improves Weapon Power and Max Weapon Power. It stacks with all other forms of Max Weapon Power.
  • Console - Advanced Engineering - Hangar Craft Power Transmission
    This Console improves the Weapon Power and Max Weapon Power of pets, as well as providing Bonus Torpedo damage to them. The buffs are increased by 40% per Rank, so 5 star Hangar pets receive +200% of the bonus, or 3x total. Max 25 pets affected.
  • Console - Advanced Science - Energy Field Gradient Projector
    This Console adds a powerful Shield Siphon enhancement to all Drain effects, Draining Foe Shields and Healing the user's Shields. Each Console equipped improves the power accordingly, so 3 Consoles makes it 3x as strong and so on. The amount Drained scales with Drain Expertise and the amount of Shield Healed scales with both Shield Healing and Drain Expertise.
    Defeating a Foe during Shield Siphon provides a stack of Analysis (max 50) until the player is defeated or leaves the map. Each Console provides increased Hull Penetration per stack of Analysis.
  • Console - Advanced Science - Exotic Particle Amplifier
    This Console provides Base BOFF Ability Damage based on EPG (up to 500) and Bonus non-BOFF Ability Exotic Damage based on your EPG (up to 500).

Advanced Batteries

Six new crafted batteries are part of this update. They are made like normal crafted batteries from the R&D schools, but they carry a bonus effect.

Spoiler: show
  • Advanced Battery - Energy Amplifier
    +Shield Penetration skill
  • Advanced Battery - Targeting Lock
    +Critical Chance
  • Advanced Battery - Hull Patch
    Adds to Hull Regeneration skill
  • Advanced Battery - Kinetic Amplifier
    +Critical Severity to projectiles
  • Advanced Battery - Exotic Particle Flood
    +Aux Power
  • Advanced Battery - Shield Resilience Boost
    Adds to Shield Regeneration skill

Those consoles affecting weapon power for pets is a huge boon to flight deck carriers. I’m curious about the weapon power ones with an intel ship.
