Heavy Escort Carrier Power Levels
 
Been looking around but haven't seen any useful info. The new T5 Akira carrier, what are some suggested power levels and why? Do the fighters/bays do better with power in a certain area? If they do, why does the power do for them?

Thanks!

It's an Escort, Power to Weapons.

Hanger Bays cooldown faster with more Aux power.

That being said see the first sentence.

Correct, don't pump aux just for fighter CDs, you will be a failscort if you do. Weapons at 125/95 shields get the rest, aux and engines at minimums (which are actually fairly high because you have lots power boosting equipment and skills right?)

i run at 118/80 Weapons the rest into shields, it works pretty well, not quiet the oomph as 125 power, but the difference isn't noticeable enough to make a major difference.

Its still an escort to me. Full power to weapons and rest into shields.

Default escort settings for me is 100/25/50/25, this keeps my speed up for more bonus defense and with 3 engineer slots available I would make up for shield power by cycling 2 EPtS powers which would bring in added dmg resists too. For the fighters to spawn faster try a flight deck doff so you dont have to worry to much about aux power setting.

Last I checked there aren't flight deck doffs on fed side. At least not ones that reduce hangar cd.

correct, the only FDO's for feds so far add more shuttles to boarding party.

I have been misinformed then and I apologise for the misinformation.

However I belive my 100/25/50/25 default escort power settings and 2 EPtS on cycle would still be a good power setting for this ship combined with the M.A.C.O. Resilient Shield and its Power Conduit Link as well as skill allocation in power skills.. Besides, an Escort should be finishing fights fast enough to not have to worry about pet cooldowns.:p

There are DOFFS that buff attack in Intercept mode and others that buff defense in another mode. +%10 to attack from a green DOFF, +%15 for a blue
