My build was an all turret one. It didn’t do any good dps. That’s why I would like the changes I suggested. This ship is meant to be a tank/healer. I am going to be trying a heavy torpedo and mine set up because I always keep my power in shields and aux.
My character is a Vice Admiral Tactical Officer using an Odyssey cause its free lol.
I'm not a tank/healer but for some reason I tend to get nudged into the tank role... I'm more of a theme kind of player and my setup shows this. Weapon loadout are Retrofit Forward Phaser Bank x4 and Retrofit Aft Phaser Bank x4. Using Aegis set aswell.
No complaints in the tank role though, for myself and from people who team with me, friends or PUGs
No. There is no need to switch the Lt. Tactical to an Ensign one. The Odyssey needs as much as help as it can to deal out DPS. I'm an engineer in an Oddy who does Elite STFs successfully with the current bridge officer slots. She does just enough DPS to be useful (and even then certain missions require certain strategy modifications). If anything, her Universal Bridge slot should be upped to Commander rank or her Tactical slot upgraded to Lt. Cmdr.
I don't get the turret set-ups for the Odyssey, either. Especially turret set ups are really not worth anything because with beam arrays you are broadsiding the whole time and get better dps which is really not as much as others do but you should soak up the damage of those cubes first and secondly deal some damage which works very well in my opinion.
I'm an engineer, skilled all tanky (Armour, shields 'n stuff) with some decent def-buff skills and some light support (hazard emitters, engineering teams). I think it works quite nice ^^
