My First Defiant
I'm fairly new to escorts, & would like to know what PVPers think of my build.
I do not have any of the Borg gear, other than the console, nor will I get any.
I always get disconnected trying to do the STF's & completely lost interest.
I'm thinking of changing the Aux battery for the Davidian console , & possibly dropping the DBB & BO3 & adding another DHC with HYT3. Or maybe keeping the DBB, add an array to the rear, & switch BO3 for TSSengines3
What do you think?
nub i use aux bat.
ur build sux.
All Weapons are Mk XI Very Rare
3 Phaser Dual Heavy Cannons Mk XI
1 Quantum Torpedo Launcher Mk XI
3 Phaser Turrets Mk XI Very Rare
For Consoles, this is what I use. (All are Mk XI Rare)
Full Borg Set: A lot of people don't think the shields are good on an escort. Well, I think they are great.
1 EPS flow regulator (Essential on an escort)
1 Nutronium Alloy (Thinking about switching out for +35 to shields, haven't decided yet.)
1 Halon System
3 Prefire Chamber
1 Quantum Chamber
THY 1, CRF 1, THY 3, CRF 2, TT 1, TT1, APB 1, & APO 3. (The reason for this, is when I first strike, I hit TYH 3, CRF 2, TT1, & APO 3. This sends CRF 1, THY 1, APB 1, and TT 1 in 15 seconds cooldown. Basically, I just keep switching between the two.
EPtS 1 & 2 (not only do they raise your shields, but they give you shield resistance, and shield power which is great for the Borg shields)
I know that these share a cool down. But, if you time it right, it doesn't matter. Polarized Hull only lasts for 15 seconds, Well, that is how long it sends HE into a cool down. So you hit Polarized hull, then HE 15 seconds later.
So, this is what I do.
Cloak, get behind someone. Hit all my abilities. Fire on my mark, APO, APA, CRF 2, THY 3, & TT 1.
Decloak. and fire. Dead in 5 seconds. I have tried this build in Karrat, and in PvP and it works great.
I went up against a Nebula class, Fleet escort, and some Klingons. The Polarized hull & HE kept my hull up, & EPtS kept my shields up.
If you're bored:
Canon Build Defiant (to make it look it as closely as possible to the show):
Front: 3 DCs, 1 Quantum Torpedo Launcher
Aft: 3 Beam Arrays.
Ok lemme tell u my escort build and its success in the pvp world.
I use 4x Dual heavy cannons for maximum burst. which is very important in an escort.
then i use 3 turrets aft and stuff so i get maximum possible dps.
you can also take a slot for qantum torpedo its hit very hard with HY3. its best if you crit you blow someone away instanty.
For engineering slot i recomend Engineer team and Aux to sif. do not use Aux2bat but some people say its really good but i dont believe it. its not. u can also use Emergency power to engines combined with engine battery and i will explain the rest later. Its for H&R
for the science slots use tractor repulsers and tractor beam u will die ur enemy fastest.
for u conzules i shuld put 2 energy type consoles tactical in it, and 2 warhead yield chambers so they doo not have deminishing returns if you mix and match.
Now for the tactics u use, ur build is pretty pretty good voor hit and run tactcss, i can see that now.
cuz thats the only thing escorts can do. they decloak attack and flee. escort cannot survive 1 on 1, let alone 2 vs 1 or 3 vs1... or hole team at ur ***
And fur ur weapons crtdx3 is probaby best choice. you have maximum spikes in ur dmg and taht can surprise enemies really bad. I really did nice crit against npc last nite it was 1500 crit i think.
engineer console probaby 35+ capacity you really want combine that wit haegis for ful effect. Maximal capacutty is a must for escort hit and runners.
I also say that since using my mouse for steering my escort really does great now.. i have less miss cuz i can target my enemies better
I forgot almost about tactial abilities. I use attack pattern beta 3 and beta 2 on rotation bassis with keybind. ir raelly work well. u always have -30/-40 dmg debuff so shields go down almost double as fast. its really best for maxmimum DPS ....
I run 4 DHC 3 Turrets as well.. Currently anyways.
CRF3 Beta2 and TacInit - CSV 2 for spamclearing
Borg set + Aegis deflector (for shieldpower boost)
I can prolly get you a group for the STFs - Last time we did all 3 in ~3 hours total
I'd go with at least SciTeam 1, and then if you're feeling it, TSS 2 in place of Hazard 2.
SNB is gonne wreck your DHC firing cycles, as well as placing your Evasives on even more of a CD if you're trying to run it out. (Disclaimer: I'm no Escort pilot, I'm alway in my Sci ships so I always have a SciTeam handy. I'm just assuming it'd be bad for an Escort).
I'd also go with TSS 2 to mesh with your EPtS cycles; all the shield hardening in the world isn't going to do you any good with shields to resist incoming damage.
I'd also go with 2 Aegis, 2 Borg for the procs. 2 Aegis for the +15% bonus (which you should be maxed out with, after the speed bonus is calculated in), and then 2 Borg for the hull regen proc.
id love to get on a good group for the stf's
It may not seam like much but this has strangly been very strong.
