husanak's new escort pilot thread is a must read. the answers to all of your build questions will be answered there.

i am having a bit more trouble with all the +35 shield cap consoles being stacked out there. and i will say that i'm a pretty decent escort pilot.

a little for starters:

get ACC mod weapons.
use crf3 and apo1...not the other way around
go 3 dhc's. and either a torp or dbb if you do not run 4 dhc's.

fly fast.....stay mobile. burst....and stay if a shield facing drops...if not... evade, line up for another burst

have fun kill bad guys

try to get ACCx3 weapons. ACCx2 + crtH or crtD are nice too.

cannon rapid fire 3

attack pattern omega 1

Some GREAT advice here, I'm just starting to use a Tac/Escort Combo myself.

But I do wonder about this one also. The dmg boost of APO1 is what 14%, but APO3 is 24%, that seems like quite a big boost. Is the damage boost from CRF3 really that good, or is there some additional benefit?

attack pattern omega is a defensive boost, the damage % is neglegable in the big picture.

you want it for immunity to stun and tractor....and the agility.

and yes, crf3 is that much better.

Indeed what Cap Horirzon hath said.
APO is defensive skill in order to get out of just about any hold out there.
CRF3 killz mai shields when im not paying attention :)

Makes sense. Making the change now.

Indeed be wary of 10% anythings in this game. 10% more dmg is calculated off of the base weapon dmg... and is really not that impressive. CRF 3 for the win. :)
