the defient was the best escort for a wile, even with its undesirable ens station.it had the best turn and a cloak, and is still a competent ship even today. it shares the station setup with the qin, and wile its not as good a ship stat wise, this build fits both of them. with all the rep system passives, you cant just unload DHC damage and hope to kill anyone, you need a closer. a reliably one is a DBB with BO, torps are much more tricky to make effective. im not going to recommend BO3 here, it appears to not benefit from acc mods or any acc bonuses. BO2 can hit at about 30K with a crit pretty easily, thats likely going to be plenty most of the time.
3 DHC, 1 DBB, 3 turrets
TT1, BO2, APO1, APO3
TT1, CRF1, CRF2
station power long form here
the 2 APO are your get out of jail free card, they let you shrug of anything from a tractor beam to warp plasma, and increase your speed and defense greatly. wile those 2 are cooling down. its basicly insane to not run 2 APO on an escort, and APO3+crf 2 will give you higher spike then CRF3+APO1. when you use BO, i recommend using an EPS console, it will recharge all the energy BO uses quicker, so your other weapons are firing at a higher energy level and dealing more damage.
2 turn, 1 EPS
4 energy type consoles
evasive maneuver cooldown reducing conn doffs, shield distribution doffs
this ship is best at hitting and running, stacking all buffs and then decloaking and firing it all at someone, if your lucky you can all but 1 shot someone with the heavy cannon fire and BO. the shield distro doffs will give you an extra shield heal to allow you to tank longer, and being able to use evasive maneuvers more often will let you speed tank, get good position, and GTFO when needed without having to wait. trying to control such a speedy ship and use it effectively will do much to improve your pvp skill.
