Dreadnought Setup
Hey. Can anyone give me ideas for a good dreadnought setup that can hold its own against the borg? My dreadnought is getting destroyed in moments.

Also, is there a way to saucer separate in the dreadnought?

Thanks for any help you can offer,

No you can't saucer sep in a dreadnought, thank god. Try the Hakashin build, which uses both the cloak and phaser lance too great effect.

Why is that a thank god?

Because with saucer the dread would be actually playable. You want to PvP or PvE in it ?

Blah my link to that one dread guide isnt working. Pretty much is it boils down to regular cannons in the front with four turrets in the back. Using rapid fire one a set of energy modulation 2. A set of emg power to shields one. Also having reverse shield polarity one, he used extend shields, I used eng team one. As sto goes on more and more things are bypassing shields. Then struct integrity 3 for the commander eng slot. Also a set of tact team one.

Cannon is a Decloak, and catch em off guard, destroy em and decloak. It's like a sniper. Get em while they used everything the had. Stealth. Kinda hard to be the flagship in a 5 man team action. You will be more of 2nd in command I guess... Hard to describe. But the Decloak, Lance, Cannon Rapid Fire 1 and other Buffs are just pure AWESOMENESS...

Beam is the endurance build. You wear em out and you are more depended on the lance to finish them off. But she can last probably a little bit longer... Maybe even. But the Fire At Will + Attack Pattern Beta Combo is pretty damn amazing (throw in a weapons battery to maximization it XD ) This build is the Dreadnought Flagship. You are the center of your 5 man team.

Cannon = Damage
Beam = All Around (No Cloak but you have Jump console)

This is what I like about forums information for the taking. I never even considered trying this
"But the Fire At Will + Attack Pattern Beta Combo" Ill have to give that a try.

Sorry for sounding Biased toward the Beam XD the Cannon is what I am using now and... I'm speechless right now. Decloak right next to 1 guy and destroy em in like 5 secs... Like an escort on steroids. You cannot go wrong with either 1.

But how well would cannons do against a borg tactical cube your fighting by yourself is the question?

Link to the Hakashin build

Works prety well altho I stopped using in favor of the oddy. As for the borg...honestly.... the lance barely touches them most times but you can still put out an impressive amount of fire power with the cannons. But it is a prety narrow build spec and highly specialized so not generaly a pick it up and go build, takes some practice.
