Overview[edit | edit source]

Gravity Well icon (Federation).png

Gravity Well is a Science Bridge Officer space ability. It creates a gravity well that draws nearby enemies in while causing minor damage.

Basic Information[edit | edit source]

  • Profession: Science
  • Locale: Space
  • Game Description: Gravity Well creates a spatial anomaly at the target's location that draws enemies to its center and gradually crushes their ships, inflicting kinetic damage. The closer the target is the event horizon, the greater the pull. Graviton Generators skill slightly improves the gravitational pull while also improving the area affected by the anomaly. The damage inflicted by this effect is improved by your Particle Generators skill as well as your current auxiliary power.

Ability/User Rank CD Ability Effects
Rank I: Lieutenant Commander 60-100s
  • Creates a level 51 Gravity Well for 20 sec:
    • -0.21 Repel
    • 693.7 Kinetic Damage per sec (Ignores Shields) (Increases closer to center)
    • Reveals cloaked ships
    • 2.7 km radius Area of Effect*
Rank II: Commander 60-100s
  • Creates a level 51 Gravity Well for 20 sec:
    • -0.22 Repel
    • 924.9 Kinetic Damage per sec (Ignores Shields) (Increases closer to center)
    • Reveals cloaked ships
    • 2.85 km radius Area of Effect*
Rank III: Commander 60-100s
  • Creates a level 51 Gravity Well for 20 sec:
    • -0.23 Repel
    • 1155.8 Kinetic Damage per sec (Ignores Shields) (Increases closer to center)
    • Reveals cloaked ships
    • 3 km radius Area of Effect*
  • Above Table for 100 aux 0 EPG and 0 Control Skill points.

Formula/Table[edit | edit source]

100 Gravgen buff the range by ~50% (100/(120/2*3))

    • Gravgen points = Radius for Grav Wells.
    • Partgen points = Ability Damage
Skill Points Radius Damage Rank 1 Damage Rank 2 Damage Rank 3
99 6 km 619 825 1031
200 8 km 627 836 1044
300 10 km 681 909 1136
400 12 km 708 945 1180
500 12 km 761 1016 1268
  • Notes below will indicate Max for each LVL GW.

Notes/References[edit | edit source]

  • The above-listed numbers for area of effect radius are based on stats revealed by developers in a forum post before the numbers were changed by a patch on October 3, 2013. The patch was supposed to increase the area of effect, but the exact numbers are now unknown.
  • The above-listed stats for kinetic damage, repel, and area of effect radius are base numbers that can be improved by skills and/or auxiliary power levels.
  • Developer forum post [1] -- Graviton Generators skill effect on Gravity Well radius and repel prior to patch of October 3, 2013
  • As of season 11.5 Gravity Well Radius is capped at 12km (24km diameter) @ 400 Control Points.[2]
  • Additional Control Expertise beyond this point will still benefit the Pull values.
    • Gravity Well I: Base Radius 2km // Max Radius 8km
    • Gravity Well II: Base Radius 2.5km // Max radius 10km
    • Gravity Well III: Base Radius 3km // Max Radius 12km
