Base Empowerment: Temporary Powers

Information Guide
by Bopper

Written: 14 June 2020

(Information that might help players understand the benefits of Base Empowerment temporary powers)

 

 

Empowering Stations are base items whose primary function is to craft temporary powers. These powers only affect your character and last for 90 minutes of in game time (the game incorrectly states 60 minute duration). They are also incredibly cheap to craft, costing one or two common salvage and sometimes an additional uncommon salvage. 

 

This information guide will go over the following:

  • How buffed up will your character be if you craft every Base Empowerment Temp Power?
  • How much salvage does it cost to craft every Base Empowerment Temp Power?
  • How to check when the Temporary Power will expire
  • How to delete a Temporary Power
  • Summary of Base Empowerment Temporary Powers

 

In the Summary Table at the end, I show all of the Temporary Powers provided by the Arcane and Tech Empowering Stations. This table will show the amount of buff your character will receive from each Temporary Power as well as the salvage cost for crafting that Temporary Power. Whether you craft the Temporary Power as Tier 1, Tier 2, or Tier 3, it makes no difference; they are all the same strength and have the same duration. It is important to note that you cannot stack the same type of Temporary Power; once you craft the buff you will be unable to craft the same Temporary Power until the buff duration expires or if you manually delete the power from your Power window.

 

How buffed up will your character be if you craft every Base Empowerment Temp Power?

The question we all care about. Here's a quick breakdown:

+20% Recharge buff

+17% Recovery buff

+5% Resistance to ALL damage types

+17.5% Resistance to most status effects (Confuse, Stun, Fear, Hold, Immobilize, Sleep)

+20% Resistance to Slow and Recovery/Endurance Drain debuffs

+10 Magnitude Knockback Protection

+100 feet Perception Increase

+25 feet Stealth (250 feet in PVP)

+20% Run Speed (+2.86 mph)

+20% Strength to Jump Speed

+20% Strength to Fly Speed

+60% Strength to Knockback (You might not want this)

 

How much salvage does it cost to craft every Base Empowerment Temporary Power?

The short answer: 45 salvage. 42 Commons and 3 Uncommons. The real question is, what do you need to stash away (or have on the ready to buy from the Auction House) to quickly run in and craft every single buff quickly. Afterall, maybe your buffs ran out during the middle of a Task Force and you need to quickly re-up. Since all buffs are the same, I will just show the breakdown for Tier 3 Arcane and Tier 3 Tech Salvage costs. I'll include a full breakdown in the comment section below.

 

Arcane:

  • Ceramic Armor Plate (x2)
  • Demonic Threat Report (x4)
  • Fortune (x5)
  • Hydraulic Piston (x3)
  • Kinetic Weapon (x3)
  • Mathematic Proof (x3)
  • Nevermelting Ice (x4)
  • Regenerating Flesh (x4)
  • Ruby (x4)
  • Silver (x3)
  • Spirit Thorn (x4)
  • Temporal Analyzer (x3)
  • Destiny (x1)
  • Psionic Threat Report (x1)
  • Sapphire (x1)

 

Tech:

  • Ceramic Armor Plate (x4)
  • Demonic Threat Report (x2)
  • Fortune (x3)
  • Hydraulic Piston (x4)
  • Kinetic Weapon (x4)
  • Mathematic Proof (x5)
  • Nevermelting Ice (x3)
  • Regenerating Flesh (x3)
  • Ruby (x3)
  • Silver (x4)
  • Spirit Thorn (x3)
  • Temporal Analyzer (x4)
  • Chaos Theorem (x1)
  • Gold (x1)
  • Pneumatic Piston (x1)

 

How to check when the Temporary Power will Expire

Now we're getting into how you can verify the duration lasts for 90 minutes, but also it is good to know if you have enough time remaining before you start an assignment. If you check the remaining duration and feel as though it's not enough time, you can delete the power, then re-craft the power to restart the 90 minute clock.

 

To check the remaining time on a Base Empowerment Temporary Power, select "Powers", scroll down to "Temporary Powers", right-click the temp power you want information from and select "Info".

The Description will show when the Temporary Power will expire. Notice the generic description states 60 minute duration but the expiration is longer. It's worth noting this is the only way to check when the power will expire. There are other means to check the power info, but none of those descriptions will show the expiration.

How to Delete a Temporary Power

Perform the same steps as we did for checking when a Temporary Power expires, but instead of right-clicking to select the "Info", right-click and select "Delete Power". A pop-up menu will display to verify your selection. Select "Yes".

Thanks for this. If nothing else knowing they last for 90 minutes, and not the stated 60, makes them a bit more appealing.

Excellent information, thanks!

Thank you. I just finished my first re-formatting sweep. Let me know how it looks and if it's still helpful. And feel free to give me feedback if something is not clear or if something could be said/shown differently for better clarity.

Yeah, that's much clearer and easier to read now. Good job.
