Notes/References[edit | edit source]

It is worth noting that this ability operates under the same mathematical rule that governs cooldown time reductions. Weapons power-usage is calculated using the following formula:

Power_Cost = Base_Power / (100% + 25%) or Power_Cost = Base_Power / 1.25

For a beam array, this would reduce the base power cost from 10 to a net cost of 8 points, instead of 7.5.
