# 1 Quad Cannon Vs. DHC?
12-03-2011, 08:36 PM
Hi, just a simple question: Is the new Quad Cannon for either side better than a Mark XI Purple DHC of the same type in terms of raw damage and bonuses?

On paper, the dps is the highest, but in practice they're pretty much just dual cannons with a different graphic. As they have no Acc, CritD, or CrtH mods, you are better off with DHC or even DC with good mods.

I was excited about them then found out even my MKX garbage was better... I use MKII stuff currently so you can imagine how disappointed I was

The QC look and sound awesome, but stacked next to DHC they are just "meh".

Great for PvE, not so hot for PvP. Why? To prevent the inevitable run on a "pay-to-win" item. This was one of the few things that Cryptic did right. Not sayin' it was the *best* solution, but they haven't got a great track record with doing things that make a whole lot of sense either.

Yeah, i had the same issue. The damagae was only SLIGHTLY higher than MK XI even though i'm at VA. then add on the bonuses as well as the fact it's phaser only then it's just not worth the money. They should have just added the Sau Paulo as a costume/bridge set and integrated Quad cannons into the game as regular items. Sao Paulo can't even use the cloaking device....
