Deflector Dish/Array
 
Hi, i'm having trouble deciding which deflector dish to use and really could use some advice on which u think is the best. Thanks.

well, we need more information to determine the best deflector.

what are your science bridge officer skills?
what class (tactical, engineer, science) is your character?
what ship do you use?
do you pvp or just pve?

put up that information and we'll have a pretty good idea of what deflector you'll need

lol sorry knew i forgo to add something..

what are your science bridge officer skills?
well i switch between science team one/jaming sensors to Hazard emitters and poloize hull. atm im doing the borg missions so.

what class (tactical, engineer, science) is your character?
I have a engineer officer and using a Assault Cruiser :D

do you pvp or just pve?

pve. what does it stand for player v?

sorry. it stands for player vs environment. its basically when you or a group are not facing human opponents.

What rank are you? there are certain high-ranking deflectors you might/probably will not be able to use yet

Without being at my machine with the game on, i believe the positron one has +emitters as standard which will help poth hazards and polarize hull.

If you can get one with a +Hazard system bonus you're in business...

In general though, Aegis is the favourite new toy, the benefits of having the set somewhat outweight the miniscule benefit you get to your very low rank sci skills. In some respects, it almost barely matters for non-sci ships.

Rank, Rear adimral upper half 4.


Umm unfortunatly at the start of playing this game i had no idea what the items ur find in space were used for so i got rid of them and now i know what they are for i'm atm trying to save up for the aegis tech.

the aegis tech is some of the best in the game. I believe it gives a +33 to emitters, which, while not the maximum you could get, is made up for by the extra bonuses from the aegis set.

I believe the maximum is around +45 or +55 to emitters, but it basically means that you have no bonuses to anything else, like sensors.

Ok, thank you everyone :)

For PH and HE, you want hardware that adds to either Emitters or Hazard System. Some deflectors have an [HS] mod (green, blue or purple ones only) which add to Hazard. Mostly you will only find ones with a base bonus to Emitters and possibly an [Em] tag for a further added mod.

ST depends on Deflector and Deflector Field, but not Deflector Dish. The [Def] mod is fairly common, but you have to watch out with it because there are lots of ones with [DefD] as well. Jam Sensors depends on Sensors and Sensor Array. The big brother of Jam Sensors (Scramble Sensors) depends on Sensors and Sensor Probes. The Tachyon type deflector dishes have large base bonuses for Sensors and Sensor Array, and may also have [Sen], [SenA], and [SenP] mods. I would only favor these for a setup centered around a high-rank Scramble Sensors ability though, so a Tachyon dish with [Sen] [SenP] would be worth it only for those setups devoted to SS3.

The Aegis set gives a basic +33 to Emitters and Deflectors, so it's a good all around dish for setups that use mainly science healing powers. The Borg deflector adds to Sensors and one other, so it's better for a CC setup. Besides that, I've found the best thing when hunting for these on the exchange is to search for just the mod tag, like [Sen], [Em], or [Def] that will boost the skills I'm most interested in, then try to find a dish with the overall best focused base and bonus mods for the skills I'm using. I try to avoid dishes that have any "wasted" mods.

The standard "Deflector Dish Mk XI" types will boost all three of the base Deflector, Emitter, and Sensor skills, which is nice. But the specialised types give up base bonuses to one or two of them in exchange for much higher base mods on the remaining skills. For all around use I'd probably stick with Aegis for Borg, and go with a specialized dish with maximum mods for one or two things, only where I'm trying to make the most of one specific skill (e.g., in a SS3 build).

ya i have decide just to stick to the standard dish until i get the aegis or borg techs. thanks again.
