New Chimera class heavy destroyer
 
Okay, time to discuss the builds for the new Chimera class heavy Destroyer.

There are going to be lots of STO vets flying these things soon with Cryptic giving instant access to all vet perks to all LTS holders from day one.

I welcome any suggestions for an Engy flying one of these new toys.

I'm planning on using the latest weapons from the newest lockboxes along with the time-ship consoles from the Lobi store.

The blog post dated Oct 9th says the ship will be available to LTS "tomorrow" after scheduled maintenance, so expect the ship to be available Wed Oct 10th.

Although, usually updates are on Thursday and it wouldn't be the first time a Cryptic spokesperson got the dates mixed up, so I wouldn't be surprised if its not actually available until Oct 11th.

Planning to use the same build as my Akira Class T5 I currently fly:

MK XII Borg Antiproton DHC x2, 1 MK XII Borg QTorp Launcher, 1 MK XII Borg Antiproton DC

3 MK XII Borg Antiproton turrets

MK XII MACO Shield and Deflector, Borg Engine

Subspace Field Modulator & Red Matter Capacitor

Eng Consoles:
Borg Console, MK XII Blue Neutronium armor, Tachyokinetic Converter

Tac Consoles:
MK XII Blue Antiproton Mag Regulators

Sci Consoles:
MK XII Blue Shield Emitters, MK XII Blue Shield Regen

The final BOFF assignments, I'll see.

What is phased armor? I'm not familiar with this device and it doesn't appear to be listed on stowiki.org.

baudl 10-09-2012 02:50 PM

same as the fleet patrol escort i guess. ltcmd tac, and the universal ensign switching between sci and engi.

to accomodate the new console and facing only 9 consoles, i think the field generator and the resi console will be gone. I will also need a RCS console to make it turn faster...so there is not much left .

4 phaser consoles in tac slots
special device, rcs, point defence system in engi slots
assimilated console and field generator in sci slots

i think phased armor is that device from one of the devidian missions...gives resi and def for 15 sec

Once the maint is over and I can grab it I'll hop over to tts and run some tests my self compare it against the tac oddy keeping my beam build intact see if its worth the jump over dps wise. (my gut instinct thou is telling me the tac oddy is better overall vs the chimera; same for the kdf side).

Tyhe Chimera has cannons acess so keeping the beam build is a tottlaly nonsiceal test.

Actually no I'm testing the ship not the weapons hence why I'm keeping the build the same to see how much difference there is between them; plus that in turn saves me wasting time on farming out new gear if I choose not to use it after.
