Would anyone mind if I mined their mind for mine advice? 😜

    I frequently see top end kinetic builds using mine in the rear weapon slots and though I know they can be potent I’ve never really used them because for years they were utter crap and abandoned by the devs.

    I’d like to add one to my build and as I understand it there’s likely point in using more than one anyway.

    So firstly; what’s the best one to use?

    Second; does it need to be used with the special fitting modes or is just dropping the basic 4 mines good enough?

    Is it worth adding mine specific traits, being in mind it’s already a torpedo build and so there’s little room to swap the more useful traits for something that’ll only help a single weapon.

    Thirdly should I just set the mine to auto fire and used the transport mine command to move them to targets as they are spat out?

    Feed me your knowledge!!!

    I'm using the Appalachia T6-X as a torp and minelayer build and I fit 2 x Thoron Infused Quantum Mine Launcher and the Modulating Competition Mine Launcher in the back. It throws out enough mines so that you can use your Relocate Captain ability when you need it and know that there's going to be a tonne of KABOOM arriving. I have Mine Dispersal Pattern Beta III on the Tac Cmdr Boff Slot. Other than that I don't have any traits dedicated to Mines at all, although you could look into the Hot Pursuit trait if you want to double your mine lock on and chase distance from 4km to 8km. I don't use it and I still have a lot of fun.

    Hit me up if you'd like a full build.

    For the mines in general a low level Dispersal Pattern Beta is used in general I think a Level I is used.

    Edit: You also want to use a ship with a Commander Command Seat a cheap and easy to get ship is the Malachowski / Clarke

    Those are the Mines you want to use but don't ask me for their names:

    Always ensure that you have "Relocate Mines" somewhere in your bar keybinds. Even if you don't use dispersal pattern it does mine magic!

    I have Thoron-Infused mine from the Delta rep already so that’ll done to start with.
    And I can drop APO3 from my tac Cmd seat to slot in a mine dispersal pattern as well as that won’t have too big an impact on my handling of the ship.

    Don’t think I can realistically fit more than one mine on the build though. I’ll try it out so far and see what it’s like.

    Thanks for the advice.

    I have three of those already then. Just not the competitive one but I’ve got marks and dilithium sore so I’ll grab that too for testing.
    I think I also have the web mines and the cloaked tractor ones somewhere.
