PVP Build for Eng in a Sci Ship
 
Hi,
I am a returning player, been PVE'ing since I've been back. I had my hand at PVP and basically had my Rear handed to me on a silver plate. What are the viable PVP builds for a Engineer in a Sci ship? I am in the Intrepid retrofit.
Thanks

I'd be interested in hearing some thoughts on that too, as i'm in a similar situation, tho not limited to the LRSV-R.

There's a bunch of viable builds, not too different from the existing Sci builds that have been posted.

What are you looking to use as your main ability? Gravity Well and/or Scramble for cc? CPB + Tachyon Beam for shield strip?

I am looking to be a shield stripper and then attack the hull.

Oh and currently I am flying my Advance Research Science Vessel Retrofit.

My shield stripper runs CPB3 and TB3. I can get about 9032 shields stripped from those 2 at max aux without any extra buffs running. Can usually strip all shields off an escort, half off a cruiser and a somewhat less off a sci.

He also runs HY1 and HYT2 with quantums, as well as TBR2 which I've hit for a max of around 15k kinetic straight to hull. I could put on PSW but I chose some heals instead.

I never expect to kill someone on my own though, it is hard in sci, but it is possible. As long as my target is also the target of others, when I sub-nuc and then smash their shields down, it doesn't matter if I crush their hull or not, someone in a friendly escort probably will. Always consider that you operate in a team in PvP.
