Laser building checklist

#1
Laser design could look intimidating at first sight but it's actually pretty simple, a quick checklist for offensive lasers:
  • Make it 4Q.
  • Always use 4 pumps/cavity if possible, you have to pay for the cavities/destabs/frequence doublers anyway.
  • Decide how much power you want to give the laser(this'll be your dps). Divide it by 400: you need this many cavities.
  • You need 22 AP, more won't help with shooting through air/water/smoke, only useful against mantlets(those have >10 armor). Put the doublers wherever you want, they are shared across the entire system.
  • Add destablizers until the power use is constant when shooting. That means cavities are never full and use 100% of their charging potential.
    Distribute the destabilizers evenly, they only affect the cavity line they're on.
  • If you'd need way too many destabilizers remove some, add an extra combiners and repeat the previous step. 1 combiner is rarely practical, I mostly use 2-4.

In stable state you could remove 1 destab each line if you really want to maximize damage/shot(burst starts with 100% filled cavities that way.)
