Drone Deployment

From Starsonata Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Drone Deployment allows you to place Drones and costs 4 skill points per level to train. You can at most deploy 3 Temporary drones, except for Engineers which has 6 slots when the Engineer Class Skill Drone Mastery is maxed.

  • Temporary Drones: +150 Shields
  • Permanent Drones: +2% to Shield, Energy, Damage, Shield Recharge, Energy Recharge, Capacity, Tracking, Firing Rate, Radar, Range, and Cloaking.

It is required the same or greater level in Piloting in order to train Drone Deployment. For instance, although Ruby Steppes trains to level 20, non-premium players can only train Drone Deployment to 19 because they are limited to 19 in Piloting.
