I'm leaning towards Tactical, but I'll happily hear thoughts. Note, for the most part, this'll just be for personal play, and Normal STFs, maybe a Elite or two once I get used to doing them, and so forth. What do you like to use with it+conjunction with what COmmander Boff?
for PvE I'd say probably a tactical, they can use the science BOFF debuff capability and make up for science ships low capacity to do damage, so if it's damage you want go tactical, this does however take away from your ability to survive and support your fighters
if you want to make best use of the fighters go science, the dampening field works wonders science captains can also soften up targets for the fighters (sensor scan), this allows you to survive but it takes a lot away from your personal damage potential
if you want to make the most of it's shield capacity science ships can make good tanks with engineers allowing you to stay in a small fight, take a bit of damage and deal a bit of damage, it just lacks the team support of science but can't do quite as much damage as tactical
I'm afraid with my little use of carriers I don't know much about what to use for it's commander BOFF but I would suggest a gravity well as this will pull all your enemies together and deal damage to all when each one blows up
Hey! I am a Tac who uses the Atrox. I think that Tac captain with a Sci Commander BOFF gives you the best DPS/Heal ship.
HE 1, TSS 2, Anything here, GW 3. HE 1, TSS 2, TR 2. With this as your Sci skills you can Tank anything. Then your Tac Captain skills plus TT 1. ( and CRF 1 if you have the Atrox.) You can deal great DPS, plus tank anything.
Any other people's experiences? Granted, I maybe have only 1/5 the cost of a Recluse, so I'm just curious. Only thing I dont like is that while FOMM for a tac captain is more powerful by some, its also, got, what, a 2x recharge time of Sensor Scan, and Sensor scan can get a damage debuff added by a doff.
