My latest build - The U.S.S. Cannoneer
Made this because I was sick of running arrays like 99% of all other cruisers around. (and picked polaron cause I was sick of shooting phasers, disruptors or Antiproton.
(Yes, I know.. Polaron procs suck.. I dont care.. I still outdamage most other ships :))
Excelsior Refit Class
4x Polaron Cannon MK XII [CrtH]
4x Polaron Turret MK XII [CrtH]
(cost me a total of 400k or so)
Reman Shield (Yes, I know a CovCap x3 is better. I use this because it is pretty.. A womans gotta have style you know)
3x Plasma Infuser MK XI - 1x Field Generator MK XI
1x Assimilated Console - 1x Induction Stabilizer MK XI
3x +26 Polaron MK XI
Tac LtC : TacTeam1 - CRF1 - CRF2 *or* TacTeam1 - CSV1 - CSV2 (for spamclearing)
Eng Cmd : EPW1 - EPS2 - DEM2 - DEM3
Eng Lt : EPW1 - EPS2
Eng En : ETeam1
Sci Lt SciTeam1 - TSS2 *or* HE1+2 (for grinding Kerrat Borg)
;)That is such a fun build. I was thinking about actually going back to it. I was running phasers but the sound was starting to annoy me. Kinda like hail hitting a tin roof. Maybe I will try tetryon. At least the color looks cool. :)
right before the FAW buff i was in the process of assembling everything needed for a build like that, and if they nerf FAW i'm likely to finish. back in the day these cannon excelsior were the top cruiser damage dealers. DEM seems to work MUCH better with cannons too, 2 of those is likely to help quite a bit
by the looks of it, you are overcaping your weapons power by quite a bit, assuming you mean Plasma Distribution Manifold. GOOD! people are in denial that you can even do that.
I'm surprised you didn't pick Tetryon (they must burn through shields with so many chances to proc) or antiproton for the heavier criticals.
My old fleetmates used to run a similar build. Very deadly in the hands of a Tac.
My only question is, do you find yourself in trouble due to only have 1 hull heal (EngTeam)?
I´m toying around with a very similar build.
But I must say I truely hate the front single cannons. Dunno why - they just dont feel right.
Perhaps I give an all turret boat a try. Never had one before and I think it could be lot of fun.
My Bo layout is somehting like:
TT1 / RF1 / RF2
TSS1 / HE2
ET1 / DEM1 / DEM2 / Aux2Sif3
ET1 / EPtS2
3 x Borg plus the Reman Shield
All Phasers. Tac Captain.
Needs some more testing
any tac captain running this build doses not need 2 copies of CRF because of tactical initiative. your better off with APO 1 to boost damage. even though its cooldown can be long, it gets cut in half too with tactical infinitive. an engineer would be better off running 2 CRF though.
I changed the setup to stop at 135 weaponspower, and see no drop in weapon power, as opposed to the above listed build.
2x Polaron Cannon MK XII [Acc][CrtD]
1x Polaron Cannon MK XII [Dmg] x2
1x Polaron Cannon MK XII [CrtH]
1x MK XII EPS - 1x Pha/Dis Armor MK XII - 1x All Energy Armor MK XII - 1x Field Generator MK XI (have alternates for the Pha/Dis armor)
Weapons are steady at around 100 power.
