Cruiser PvP build help please!
 
Hiya! Just need somebody to tweak my build of my Odyssey. Heres the thing, i can tank rather well, in my opinion, but I dont feel i do enough dps when I should. Once the other side figures out that im just a slow moving wall in space that isnt a real threat, they focus on my squishy team mates. Heres my build:

Fore:
2x X Antiproton Beam Arrays (R)
1x XI Antiproton Beam Array (VR)
1x XI Hargh'peng Torpedo

Aft:
3x X Antiproton Beam Arrays (R)
1x XI Antiproton Beam Array (VR)

Running the Aeigis set

Subspace Field Modulator

Consoles:
2x XI EPS Flow Regulators (R)
1x X Ablative Hull Armor (VR)
1x X SIF Generator (R)
1x Assimilated console
1x XI Field Generator (R)
1x XI Shield Emitter (R)
2x XI Antiproton Mag Regulators (U)

Thats that for equipment. I'm in the process of overhauling the junk and upgrading what needs to be, but any suggestions would be helpful. Also, should i still go for the MACO set? After the last nerf ive been hearing/reading a lot of complaining about it, so im not to sure on that front. As for skills:

Tac Team 1
FAW 2

EPS 1
Aux to Structural 1
Eng Team 3

Eng Team 1
RSP 1
EPS 3
EWP 3

HE 1
FBP 1
Trans Shield Str 1

And thats that for my skills. Thoughts? Opinions? Options? Thanks for looking this over too ^0^

Please, don't try to get what you can't...enough DPS? I'm a fed tac Captain and the Odyssey was the worst disappointment of my life!:mad:

Well this toon is an Engineer VA. im not asking for escort level damage here, i have another escort/tac toon for that, im just asking for any advice on increasing my overall dps as it stands. and personally, i like the odyssey. it makes a great tank.

I can give you my build, if you're like.

It looks like you went with an LtC Eng for your Universal. If you don't use it as an LtC Sci, you're really missing out as with an Eng, it's basically a Star Cruiser with a lower turn rate. If you would still like to keep your LtC as an Eng, I'd recommend the Assault Cruiser. That extra Tac console will go a long way as to helping your DPS.

Just note that with a Cruiser, you can DPS effectively - but if you're not also actively healing your teammates, you're actually a drain on your team. A Cruiser needs to heal and support teammates, otherwise it's DPS is a waste - you're not doing as much damage as an Escort nor are you providing the benefit a Sci or 'standard' Cruiser would.

I'm Unknown Entity in this screenshot. You should be able to extrapolate my build from it. If you're got any questions, feel free to ask.

Red Matter Capacitor. It functions as a battery, +25 to all power for 15 seconds or so.
