View Full Version : Best BoP Class?
07-09-2011, 02:26 PM
In honor of Klingon Awareness Week, I will be starting my first KDF toon. At level cap, I intend to be in a Bird of Prey, and was wondering which profession/class is best suited for maximum PvP awesome. Obviously, any class can be powerful if the build is good enough, which is why I'm having trouble deciding between Tac and Sci. (the fed toon you see in my sig is a Tactical officer.)
Any helpful suggestions are appreciated!

All classes benefit by it. IMO I would say that the Tac is probably your best bet if you are looking for suvivability.
The Raptor is potent, and will be well suited for you if you have played well in the Defiant.
Science and Engineers do well in it as well, but they are better suited to the Carrier/ Veranus/ B'Rel (Sci) and the Negh'Var/ Marauder (Eng) for their build potential to be tanks and healers.

Science captains can do all kinds of nasty in a bird of Prey, I'd suggest the Hegh'ta because you get an extra science console. You also have the means to subnuc somebody, science at them a bit, and hit them with decent DPS too. My sci captain's either going in a BoP or a Kar'fi when he hits level cap.

You've played tac in a defiant. It's much the same playstyle if you want to go tac / bop. Sure you can configure your setup differently, but it'll be a strike ship.
If you want a completely different and more diverse playstyle, sci / bop is one of the best combos. You can literally do anything you want. From control, to debuff, to burst.
