# 1 Tuffli Buildout
06-22-2012, 04:16 PM
So,

For those with a Tuffli, what are you equiping in the 5 device slots and the 3 engineering slots? What BO powers would be good? Mainly I want to know what could make the primary function (non-combat, doffing, anomaly gathering) of the ship better

Remember, this is a non-combat vessel and please dump all the arguing about the Tuffli in the other threads. (Lock Boxish, gambling, it's stupid, stf grief, blah blah blah)

This is what I have so far:
  1. Transwarp computer - %50 Transwarp cool down reduction (this ship has transwarps to exploration sectors. (can only equip one, already tried)
  2. Borg or M.A.C.O. engine for high warp
  3. Two Ferengi consoles would give sector space tycoon, but I don't know if it stacks or works with the quartermaster that's onboard.
  4. RCS consoles maybe for anomaly hunting when not in sector space.

What devices would I want?

I just have to ask how well it works in actual battle.

You put a turret on the front to shoot down the torpedoes being fired at you, you put chroniton torpedoes in the back to snare the guys chasing you, you put surplus diterium in a device slot, and you run away run away!

the freighter can't even fight a cold. Took it into a exploration mission, go jumped by 3 BOP which was 2 more then needed since the 1st one pretty much 1 shotted me. Left mission hopped in Tactical Escort-R, came back and wiped the floor with everything.

The freighter can be set up to survive exploration mission combat encounters. As a freighter you need to fight with consumables.


Weapons:

Phaser Turrets x2 in front
Photon Torpedo mk12 in rear.

BOFFS:

LT Engineer: Emergency power to shields 1, engineering team 2
Ensign Science: Polarize Hull

Ship kit:

Aegis kit

Consoles:
nadeon detonator, kinetic resist armor plate x2

Devices:

Scorpion Fighters, Engine Battery, Shield Battery, subspace field modulator, chroniton torpedo platform.


Fighting is simple: RUN. Engine power is priority followed by shields and aux. wep power for the turrets is irrelevant as they are there only to shoot down heavy torpedoes and to plink targets with phaser disable effect.

The real fight is with rear torpedoes and the dropped torpedo platform plus scorpion fighters.

# 8 Get More Creative Guys

I have a freighter on both my Fed and Klingon Tac captains and i use them to do many dailies. The ship can fight you just have to be ALOT more creative in your build, if i get a chance tonight i'll come back and try to post my two builds.

I guess someone was bound to try and do battle in them...

I've got an old Mk X MACO set on mine, mostly for the faster warp speed and the better looking skin, since I can't customize anything else onto it.

I've got a Thalaron fart machine and a spare point defense module in the console slots, just for giggles.

Ignore me, I misread that.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.
