When you use a ship power, when does the buff or debuff activate? After the animation or as soon as the 1,2,3 or 4 key is pressed? Thanks in advance.

Excellent question!! I try to give a 2 second delay before I count on it as activated.

Agreed! It is an excellent question, so I went to Dockmaster Dan (the Designer in charge of these kinds of Ship matters), and he gave me the following information to pass along to you all: "Benediction, Indomitable, Sailor's Hex and Blizzard start their effect in the first second. While Chromatic Yawn, Entropic Sphere, and Old Man Winter start at about the 3 second mark."

In other words . . . it depends on the power being used!

Thanks for the question!
