Advanced escort build advice
 
Hi folks i was wondering if any of you would be willing to advise me on my advanced escort build. I have done a skill planner too (link below). I was also considering a captain re spec too and would ask for feedback on my skills also. I have tried to create my build around elite stf's to do the most dps possible and tank the borg, hopefully I have achieved this.

My equipment load out consists of:

Deflector:
Assimilated deflector array

Impulse:
Assimilated trans warp engines

Shield:
MACO MXII

Weapons:

Fore:
x3 antiproton dual heavy cannons MXII
x1 quatum torpedo MXII

Aft:
x2 antiproton beam array's/x2 antiproton turrets MXII
x1 cloaked tractor beam mines

Engineering consoles:
Monotanium alloy MXI blue
Graviton pulse generator

Science consoles:
Assimilated module
Field generator MXI blue
Emitter array MXI blue

Tactical consoles:
x2 antiproton mag regulator MXI/MXI blue
x2 zero point quantum chamber MXI blue

change to 4 Mag regulators, take 2 +35% shield and drop the regen one.

Nerf just in, those Shield Consoles are now down to 18%.

The being said still the best thing for a Sci Console slot on an Escort.

thanks for the replies... Cygone i thought the consoles where only worth stacking up to 50% and then you get diminishing returns?

I fly a fleet escort and got my best results with:

3x antiproton DHC + 1 quantum torp fore
3x atiproton turrets aft

All MK XII

Eng consoles:
EPS Flow Regulator MK XI Blue
Neutronium Alloy MK XI Blue
Universal Assimilated Module (move it bellow on your case)

SCI
2x Field Generators MK XI Blue

Tac
4x Mags MK XI Blue

On a escort you should always be facing the enemy so you max DPS using turrets aft.

Also make sure your BOFFs have Canon Rapid Fire, Canon Scater Volley, Torp High Yeld and Torp Spread.
Also, Tactical Team is mandatory.

I'd also buy a Respec token and take the points off of Threat Control....you are an escort, you may be able to outfly other heavier ships, but if the shields go down, you are dead. With the points in Threat Contol, those chances increase because NPC's will focus more on you.

Threat Control I believe is better left on a Cruiser, something that can take sustained fire.

yup already did a respec to remove the threat control and it made a huge different.. lol. Dps seems to ave taken a slight hit with the lack of threat control damage buff but i definitely survive longer now :)
