Is Expert Marksman useless for Minotaur?

The turret traverse on the Minotaur is already very fast without Expert Marksman that it is effectively useless.  You will see an improvement with it, but it is so small that in my opinion it is worthless.  The Minotaur (with Main Battery Mod 3 installed but without Main Battery Mod 2) has a 180 degree turret traverse time of 5.4 sec.

 

The only reason to take Expert Marksman on the Minotaur captain is if you use the captain regularly on a premium ship that will see a benefit from the skill.

Yes, fairly useless. Not really worth a full respec though unless you're well off or have plenty of elite cap xp.

It is most certainly worth the respec, especially if the captain is Jack Dunkirk. Using Jack's buff on the smoke screen and jack of all trades skills is a must if you have him in this ship. Having the correct build on your ship and captain makes a huge difference in top tier battles.

Like others said: useless. Your turrets already turn 4 times faster then those of the Neptune. It's like tweaking a Porsche Carrera GT engine to give you extra 5 HP. Her turrets beat those of the Atlanta and the Sims.

Yea I came to this realization after I bought the Edinburgh. I was looking ahead and realized the Neptune is cut in half of the Edinburgh and the Minotaur is half of the Neptune. I am hoping for a discounted or free respec, but not too soon as I need to get through, or mostly through the Edinburgh before I remove EM from the captain.
