# 1 Vulcan D'Kyr
02-05-2012, 06:24 AM
So, I'm playing an engineer. It's my only character and honestly, unless a miricle happens, it will always been my only character. I hate levelling anyway, so the idea of an alt makes me want to snap.

I know Engineers tank. I know the cruiser is a tanking ship and I know small amounts about how to tank in the game, but will learn more when I get to 50.

I understand that Engineers can also DPS, with the right set up. I really want to use the D'Kyr. I love the Vulcan culture and design and the chance to fly that ship is too much to pass up.

Is their a viable way to do DPS, in PvE or PvP, as an Engineer in a D'Kyr?

That would be cool. As long as it's actually possible, I don't mind working it out myself, but I'm not one to look a space-gift-horse in the mouth.

To do DPS as an engineer in D'Kyr? Good luck.

It's a great ship for many things but good DPS is not one of them.

As long as it's viable, I don't really care if it's not top of the range. To make a topical sportball analogy, I don't mind being the backcup QB, as long as I get to the Superbowl.

Well, let's wait for what he comes up with. Engineer captain combined with only 6 weapons of D'Kyr make it tough.

I can take down the shields, then run away. Then come back when it's off cooldown.

For PvP:
- Lt Tac: TacTeam 1 + FAW 2/FAW 1 + FAW 2 (if you're comfortable with no TacTeam)
- LtC Eng: EPtS 1, EngTeam 2/Extend 1 (depending on if you want to run support while DPS'ing), Aux to SIF 2
- Ens Sci: SciTeam 1
- Lt Sci: Hazard 1, Transfer Shields 2
- Cmdr Sci: Tractor Beam 1, Transfer Shields 2, (your choice here, maybe TBR 2? PSW 1? TachBeam 3?), Gravity Well 3

Power: 100 Weapons, 25 Engines/Shields, 50 Aux
Weapons: 5-6 Beam Arrays

This is more of a PvP set up. If you want PvE, then you might want to load up on some TBRs while reducing the amount of heals; distributing shields + MACO shields + Borg proc will keep your shields healthy enough on their own.

If I can DPS in an Eng/Nebula with a uni Engineer Lt for heals, it's certainly possible in a D'Kyr
