# 1 Fed Tac Cruiser Cap.. at VA1
09-12-2011, 09:12 AM
So I made VA1 recently, I am a fed tactical officer that has played cruisers since the begining.

Currently I am in a dreadnought and spent essentially all the emblems I had on gear etc...

I need some help deciding how best to respec my character so that I can continue to be decent in ground PvE and hold up well in space.

I know I will get a few "if yoru tac you should not be in a cruiser" but so be it.. I'm not rerolling and hate the leveling grind.

Any advice that is constructive is appreciated.

It would also be helpful for us to know what powers you are using.

If it's for PvE:

Lt Tac; FAW 1, Beta 1
Ens Tac: FAW 1
Cmdr Eng: EPtW 1, EngTeam 2, EPtS 3, EWP 3
LtC Eng: EPtW 1, EngTeam 2, EPtS 3
Lt Sci: HE 1, HE 2 (if you're grinding Borg. If not, HE 1, TSS 2)

If it's a DPS cruiser you want, seriously consider the Excelsior class, or even the assault cruiser if you don't like the excelsior.

And yes, you CAN have a tac / cruiser build in PvP, but realize you're going to be focused and blow up quicker without team support.

Look for a fleet who likes to PvP as you do. The 528th is fun and keeps things casual. Even when we make a team for PvP, it's really just the first 5 who X up first in fleet chat that get invited.

As tac you don't need any ground points for pve. Just grab the Fire Team kit, a Pulsewave and the Type 3 Phaser rifle from Night of the Comet Devidian Mission.

Furthermore equip your away team with either pulsewave or miniguns and train them Mine Barrier1, Phaser Turret 1/2, Quantum Mortar 2 (Eng ones). You should be able to play every mission within 10mins. (Except for STFs of course)

This way you can save a lot of skill points and have more for your space build.
