Good to know. I've always been partial to Sabers personally.
I love playing my Fleet Neb on my Tac with a double A2B build, but I'm worried about the Vesta makin that ship obsolete.
I have a Chimera beam/tachyon mine build that I'll post too along with the others I mentioned. Its not a huge DPS build, but its super annoying and drains shields like a mofo.
