2x-dba 1-ba 1-QT
using dem3,beam overlaod 1,beam overload 2,high yield 1 as my main dps
first min in kerrat pop a defiant then for the next 20 min we are poping excelciors left and right
i used many heals not on shared cool downs so i could last a long time but it got tough when it got over populated with feds
the beams worked 1000% better..........also i could attack fo 9.99km and still have max dammage where as cannons i gotta wait till im at 5.0km to have max dps
i realy wish i could get a good cannon build cuz beams seam more federation and not klingon at all and yes it did have good dps but that unfortunaetly canot be sustained due to lack of multiple copies of cannon rapid fire whatever honestly the ship is lacking the proper tac to be vialbe for pvp..pve is easy a stock ship would work great for pve or maby a garbage scow
so in conclusion.....BEAMS or BUST
Was this for a Eng or Tac captain? It truly matters.
I've been experimenting with a T4 Vor'cha with 4x single cannons/3x turrets using a Tac captain and Tactical Initiative seems to be the linchpin of this build utilizing EP2W-3, DEM-3, TT-1, CRF-1 and AP:A.
In my own small tests with some fleet mates in PvP it seems to do well and in PvE it just rips through those ships with the added decloak buff.
I really want this build to work. It seems to me such a waste to have to go back to "beams-only" for a viable build for this wonderful ship.
