Returning player needs help
 
Hello,

I have two LC one a tac escort and the other an engineer cruiser. I am trying to find a build for both the classes and ships for solo pve play and I'm struggling to remember what in the world I was aiming for when I last played. :o

I would appreciate it if someone could help with some progression builds for each one and some idea of what I should be shooting for in terms of ship layouts and bridge officer abilities. Any help is appreciated! :)

Hi There,
Well, if you are doing solo PvE play, I would go for purely DPS builds. On your cruiser I would go 2 EPS flow regulators, 2 +7 to weapons, and 8 beam arrays.

Beam Overload 2, and TT 1.
Pretty much any BO build will work in PvE. For your Cmd. slot I would use Directed Energy Modulation 3. Even try Feedback pulse.
Other then that, as long as you have 2 copies of EPtS, HE, and APtSIF, you should be fine.


For your escort build, until you get to the defiant-r, I would use DBBs, and one torpedo up front. then turrets for your aft.
For your engineering slots do EPtS 1 & 2, and Polarized hull 1, and HE 2.

For tactical BO abilities,
I would use BO 3, High Yield Torpedo 3, and APO 3. 2 copies of TT 1. If you can't train your BO's in these, then ask someone in the game, or message me, and I can do it.

With these builds, you should do just fine.

Thank you for the help. Is there any kind of way I should be putting my points in terms of skills?

This website will help alot. It's one of my favorites because it allows you to select your Captain and the ship you are in. Then just fill in the BOFF abilities according to stations and it will highlight which Skills/Boxes will effect those abilities.

Engineer Captain in an Escort is pretty good, gives you nice DPS with abit extra survival. so instead of a glass cannon, you'll be flying in a FIBER glass cannon :P I myself perfer cruisers.I have an Assualt Cruiser, Galaxy Retro, and Excelsior ( my favorite ) Just ask yourself what it is you would like to do (DPS, Survival, Something in between, or Tons of Toys {Science} ) and go from there. Solo PvE everything dies in 5 seconds on Normal no matter what, and 10 seconds on Elite. Ship choice really only matters in STFs and even then as long as you have 2 escorts in group, you'll be fine.
