If shields are down in the first pass I use THY II (though I have been wondering about the effectiveness of Torps in PVP)

Sometimes BO:III rips through shields, other times it gets shrugged off like a mosquito. Even on ships with NO buffs up it can get shrugged off.

I just switched to an Excelsior Refit for fun. I have 6 beam arrays (well 2 DBB and 4 arrays) and two torps (i1 quantum in the front, and harpeng in the rear) On my Excelsior Refit:

AP: A
Fire on my mark
GDF
Tac Fleet (if up)
BO III
THY II (if shields are down)

Again, same problem on the refit. Sometimes fire from the arrays are shrugged off, other times they pierce right through. Maybe more acc?
You want as much [Acc] as you can possibly get - especially on your Dual Beams that will be doing the Beam Overloads. The reason they're getting shrugged off is because they're missing, mostly.
