I just made it to Admiral Lower Half and heres what I have so far for my build off some info I received from the player builds section. Let me know what ya think I'm looking to STF and some PVP from time to time. I'm always open to info and advice so if you see anything that I should change let me know.



http://www.stoacademy.com/tools/skil...hp?build=rip_0

Upfront I have
3 Very Rare Mk X Phaser Dual Heavy Cannons ( I have a Phaser Quad Cannon [Dmg]x4 I might swap one in for one of the Dual heavy cannons)
1 Rare Mk X Quantum Torpedo


In the rear I have
1 very rare Mk X Phaser turret
1 rare Mkx phaser turret
1 rare mk VIII retorfit aft phaser beam bank ( just to see how it does I'm also going to try a quantum back there to if I don't like the retrofit phaser before settling on a 3rd turret )


Deflector
Very Rare Positron Mk X [Cms] [SubD] [Ins]

Engine
Rare Combat Mk X [Aux] [Turn]

Shields
Rare Resilient Mk X [Cap]x2
Consoles

Eng
Rare Mk X Ablative Armor
Rare Mk X Field Emitter

Science
Rare Universal point defense system
Rare Mk X Shield Emitter Amp
Rare Mk X Emitter Array

Tactical
Rare Mk X Prefire Chamber
Rare Mk X Warhead Yield Chamber
Very Rare Mk VII Zero point Quantum Chamber
Rare Mk VIII Phaser Relay

I Am also running these power settings

Weapons 90/70
Shields 86/70
Engines 48/25
Aux 47/35


I currently have 2 RCF 1's and a RCF 2, I'm thinking of swap out either one of the RCF 1's or the RCF 2 with something else but not sure what I should swap it out for.

any paticular reason you're using low level gear? Also why not one of the sets for impulse/deflector/shields? Jem set is very easy to get and works quite well, breen set would even be better than what you have. Both of those are mission rewards and don't require major STF grind or alot of EC.

For the weapons that's where I tend to spend my EC and get rare or very rare XI and XII sets off the exchange. Your TAC consoles are also all over the place, torps do plenty of damage on their own, just get the 2xcritD chance ones and save the consoles for energy weapon boosters. Aim for the +26% ones and stack 4 of them.

Also in an escort you need to be running full 125 weapon power, you have less shields for a reason, the target isn't supposed to be alive long enough to deal damage. I also run tac team, sci team, emergency power to shields, and etc on my defiant to keep the shields up. You want to be damage oriented in an escort.

Where do I get these sets? I'm only level 42 and can't do STF's yet. The reason I have some lower level stuff is I got most of my weapons etc off the exchange and didn't have enough EC left to buy higher consoles. Same with the Tact consoles I had to get what i could afford or carry over from my Refit Defiant.

Not bad at 42. I'd drop the Aux power to 25 and Shield power to 55, dump the savings into Weapons. Maybe drop the two kinetic consoles for a single better one, Rare quality, so you can add another phaser booster. As for the sets, honestly with the speed of leveling in this game you'll get to STFs faster than you'd hunt down specific parts from missions here and there, so just get to 43, get your 15 EDC, and pick up the retro Borg set (the relevant console is in the first Undine mission). But yeah, I've seen worse at 50 beating normal STFs.
