Transphasic Bomber Help!
11-21-2012, 10:46 PM
I have seen a few ships in PVP that bomb the heck out of me with transphasics to bypass my shields... in my Wells class ship I have managed to maximize my shields at just under 23,500... how can they take down my shields and hull so quickly??? Someone help me!
I have been working to develop a transphasic bombing ship since I was so impressed with what I saw in PVP... I want MAXIMUM PVP DAMAGE but Im not having much luck... normally I consider myself good with PVP builds but Im stuck!
Here is a general list of things I have been doing.
Forward: Dual Cannons (various types), Breen Cluster Torp, Rapid Fire Transphasic Torp
Aft: Turrets (various types), Rapid Fire Transphasic Torp, Transphasic Mines
Tactical: Transphasic Consoles
Science: Field Generators
Engineering: Assimilated Module, Plasma Distribution Modules
** obviously the quantity of the items above would change based on my ship choice. **
Generally I use my tactical slots for at least one tac team and the rest to support my weapon types (in this case cannon fires, torp spreads and mine dispersals). For Engineering I like to focus on shield abilities with at least one hull heal. Science I try to keep at least one tractor beam in the list, along with some hazard emitters and a transfer shield strength. Oh AND... dont yell at me!!! But I LOVE to have a mask energy signature if I have the slot for it... I like to do 1on1 PVP as well and its just way too much fun to have a cloak-type ability. Yes, I know it doesnt help much but I still like it.
I have tried this type of loadout (and many others) in multiple types of ships with the appropriate shield/deflector/engine combination to maximize the energy weapon i am using (example: polaron i use the jem'haddar etc. but overall I prefer Aegis for PVP)
I feel like I have tried everything and the only other variable is the ship I am using... so Im going to list the ships I have and hopefully someone can give me advice.
- Tholian Carrier
- Ferengi Marauder
- Wells Temporal Science
- Mobius Temporal Destroyer
- Odyssey (all 3 types)
- Tactical Retrofit
- Mirror Recon Science
- Artox Carrier
- Mirror Assault Cruiser
- Multi-Vector Assault Escort
Normally I am a shield tanker in my Wells class... someone help me with DPS!
Thanks in advance for any transphasic advice!
