Got a weapon set up you wish to share? Share it with us here!
 
Do you have a weapon and/or console setup that clicks for you? As a race striving to better ourselves, we would like to hear about it! Can't seem to set your ship up just right? Can't last hardly five seconds against another player? Wish to make your escort ship more durable or nible? This is the place where great minds can come together and formulate the best combinations of weapons and equipment for both ground and space battles.

So let the brainstorming begin! Share with us the weapon setup that works for you, tell us what type of weapons you think works best, and tell us what setback you have, and we can solve it!

So let the brainstorming begin!

4 DHC, aft turrets - any escort or vorcha
3 DHC, 1 DBB, aft turrets - any escort or vorcha

cruisers

8 beam arrays - any cruiser
4 single cannons, aft turrets - excelsior/galor only

I usually run with this ground set-up 'round these parts:
Combat Environmental Suit Mk XVI [Forums]x3

Multi-spatial Personal Shield Mk XVI [Trolling]x2 [Ban]

Zombie Split Beam Rifle Mk XVI [Necro] [Rules]x2

Cheers,

Brandon =/\=

I did something strange to my Tactical Escort Retrofit while running SB Defense, put a pair of Beam Arrays on it.

Fore: Phaser Quad-Cannons, Dual Heavy Cannons, Beam Array and Quantum Torp (3x Purple Projectile DOFFs)
Aft: 2xTurrets and a Beam Array
Borg Deflector, Omega Engines and Shields
Engineering: Armor based on what I'm fighting, mostly Phaser/Disruptor for FM Events, Subspace Jumper and Either Cloak for SB Defense or EPS for Blockade
Science: Borg Console and Field Generator
Tac: 4x Phaser Relays

I found in the more chaotic, catch-up SB Defenses where there are mostly Cruiser beam boats just fire at willing, it allowed me to get more DPS on my next target as I turned, surprisingly effective. EPS for Blockade cause of the constant full impulse running like a mad man.

Just out of curiosity, how does 1 DBB + 2 DHCs + 1 Quantum Torp (with Torp spread 3) compare to 1 DBB + 3 DHCs, in terms of spike damage? I keep thinking the torps outperform for alpha-strike spike damage, but I dunno. . .

DHCs on rapid fire can keep shields down and hammer away at hull while beam overload deals the spike damage, beam overloads can have some very nice critz and unlike torps work well on shields too.;)

Though I don't delve into the PVP section often (if at all) I am curious to see what the pros say on your question.

I've found that on average 1 DBB + 2 Dhcs will not have the damage required to pierce a shield or erode one away. Leaving that lone torp to smack rather harmlessly against shields.

You pretty much Need, 3DHCs on an escort these days.

marctraiderz 08-11-2012 05:23 PM

1 Torp front, 2x Dual cannons, 1 DBB
