Seperator, Accelerator, or Manipulator?

Discussion in 'Starbound Discussion' started by Shaadaris, Jul 29, 2016.


Which armor set's new stats do you prefer?

  1. Seperator (Melee armor +Health)

  2. Accelerator (Ranged armor +Energy)

  3. Manipulator (Psi armor +Attack)

  4. Mix and match!

  5. Iron Armor all the way!

  6. Who needs armor?

    So I've gotten to the tier where I have to select between the good ol' Seperator, Accelerator, or Manipulator armor sets.
    It seems their stats have gotten a rework again - this is how they currently stand:
    AT    DF    EN    HL
    060   016   012   024
    150   040   030   060
    090   024   018   036
    300   080   060   120
                      +HL (+60)
    060   016   030   012
    150   040   075   030
    090   024   045   018
    300   080   150   060
                +EN (+90)
    072   016   012   012
    180   040   030   030
    108   024   018   018
    360   080   060   060
    +AT (+60)
    The Seperator armor is Health focused, giving you a boost of 60 compared to the others.
    The Accelerator armor is Energy focused, giving you a boost of 90 compared to the others.
    The Manipulator armor is Attack focused, giving you a boost of 60 compared to the others.
    They all have the same defence now.

    Which do you believe to be the most useful of the new sets? Which do you prefer?

    I am using mostly the Accelerator set since I like spamming projectiles. A unique weapon I found can pretty much 1-shot all enemies so I don't need more damage. And I hate melee in this game.

    Could you add base stats in? This way it's easier to see impact of specific armor (for example 60energy -> 150energy seems like big change for me, but I don't remember what value base stat had, so in practice it may not be THAT significant)

    But in previous versions I choosed accelerator anyway - extra energy was really nice.

    I usually use melee with an offhand ranged weapon, and wear melee focused armor.

    Do you mean like base stats as in "no armor equipped" base stats?

    I'm sure there is some math you could use to ascertain an optimal mix-n-match set but, I do words not numbers :p
