# 1 Dreadnaught Ships - possible?
09-12-2012, 09:11 PM
I'm trying to add a really strong Galaxy-X as endgame space combat for mirror universe, is it possible to make it a dreadnaught-type ship in terms of strength and difficulty to destroy?

No you can't add a dreadnought if the player plays the mission solo. You should be able to skin a mirror battleship like a dreandhought though.

So if you want a really challenging group matching the level of difficulty of a dreadnought you can make something like:
Battleship 01 + cruiser 01 + fighters 01 at the same coordinates.

This will be a very challenging group, and some players won't be able to do it, it's a fact. So be carefull when you add ennemies, endless tough battles don't make a mission more interesting. If I want to play something really difficult I just queue for infected ground elite - at least the reward is worth it.

So I highly advise you to just skin a regular battleship and to give up about the extreme challenge idea. I won't make your mission better.

I'm thinking of a mirror universe preemptive strike, sort of like the mirror events, where you have to destroy the dreadnaught at the end of that mission, so...

You can also reskin a mob of another race for your dreadnaught, something that will be a little harder or a little more unique, say use an Undine or a Fek'lhri battleship group. Keep in mind though that if you pair some different types of enemies together, they will fight each other. If it was a 1-on-1 fight you were looking for, no problem.

The fehkiri battleship will pop fighters, which isn't the best idea if you want to costume it as a mirror dreadnought. The undine is fine but it will use "undine torpedoes" too.

I'd suggest a romulan battleship. The D'deridex is a hell for many players.

I found a great link for determining the best groups to use.

It shows what ships you get for each group and player count.

I think that article's outdated, though...Season 6 redesignated the actors.
