# 1 Klingon Battle Cruiser PVP
12-12-2011, 09:04 AM
So I am a recent convert to klingon, and I am currently leveling an engineer. Absolutely loving it so far. My questions regard battle cruiser pvp. What should be my role in pvp? What type of weapons should I be using?(cannon/dual beam/turret/etc) Mostly so far I have been using a mix of dual cannons and dual beams, but as a "Captain" rank I am just not seeing enough regular pvp to really test it out.(queue takes forever, and I only ever see 1 or 2 feds in Ker'rat) Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.


Thnx!

Cannons on a cruiser even KDF is hard, go beams and torps.

I like the Klink battlecruisers. Their maneuverability is excellent, especially when you add a RCS console. My only gripe is that there isn't an Excelsior equivalent. A LC Tac slot combined with that nice turn radius would make a great attack cruiser.

I had a Neghy and later vor'cha with cannons, as a tac. Deadly.

But as an engi klink i started in BoP, was playing with heg'ta for some time, tilI later on decided to spec that char for healing only and marauder cruiser.

I tried a Vor refit with cannons... couldn't get the DPS I wanted out of it.

If you want to use cannons, (for the procs maybe) use regular cannons not duals. IMO you're far better off using beams though. I typically run 1 quant, 2 DBB & 1 BA front, & 4 BA rear on my Vor'cha. I put 1 Tac team, a BO2 & hy1 in my tac slots. Although, I sometimes run 4 DBB up front just for fun. Using Aux 2 ID makes this ship almost as maneuverable as a Raptor.

I agree with this statement alot. The Klingon empire has been with out a true excelsior type BO lay out in a Battle Cruiser or Flight Deck Cruiser so far.

Hopefully that may change one day. Either that.. or maybe the Romulan Empire will get something similar.

I play an Eng in a Vorcha. I opted to go with a 6 beam broad side, and 1 DBB and 1 Quantum up front. Running HY1, BO1, APB1.

Basic healer set up:

EPTS1 x2, RSP1, ET2, ET3, Aux2Sif II(or III), extend III(or II)
Haz 1, TSS2

(note I haven't respeced since S5 started, not enough time)

One thing I haven't tried is running:
EPTSx2, A2D1 x 2, Extend II, ET3, Extend III

just run around extending with A2D running and extending like crazy. You lose hull healing, but might still work well.

Save the BO and HYT1 and APB for spiking with the DBB and quantum on targets of opportunity. The maneuverability, lets me keep things in the broadside and easily tighten the turn to bring the DBB and quantum to bear when I need it. Also easier to get rid of pesky escorts.

A Tac in a cruiser might be able to get alright burst, but won't be great. Good for an alpha with team mates and supporting with some heals before retreating.
