# 1 Regent class Performance
09-23-2012, 11:16 AM
Hi All

This is to those who have the Regent Class (Sovereign Class Refit), I was looking on the regent class page on sto wiki and nothing is mentioned about the performance of this ship and i can't still make up my mind on rather to buy her or not so can you guys and gals tell me what is she like, the good and bad?

Thanks.

Good point:-
* Lt Cmdr Tactical AND Ensign Tactial - That lets you take 2x tact team and 2x cannon rapid fire which is great for a cannon build. True it comes at a cost of Lt Cmdr engineering station, but to be honest that's no great loss.
* If the fight is pretty casual with no real risk (say general PvE) you can use the universal slot as another tactical station (giving the ship 6 tac boff powers).
* It comes with a nice 180 degree quantum torp launcher.

Bad point:-

* It doesn't turn as fast as an Excelsior

As someone who has the Regent and the Excelsior I've got to say I prefer the Regent.

what is she like in PVP? Also is she more powerful then the sovereign class or about the same and does she compete with the new Odyssey Class? What about the 2nd console that comes with the regent, meteron gas?

Its a Sovereign refit, you can even go with the Sovereign costume if you want and naturally its better that the Sovereign if not just because of the Torpedo Launcher.

As a multirole cruiser its not as good as the Odyssey but no no cruiser is going to touch the Flasgships on versatility due to their Lt. Cmdr universal.

Stats... shield mod, turn rate, impulse modifier, crew, hull hp, weapon options, and consoles are as the RA Assault Cruiser.

You trade an LTC Engineering BOff power for an LTC Tactical BOff power straight across, and pick up the option two swap what would normally be an LT Science BOff for one of Engineering or Tactical should you wish to, though either of those are not normally as optimal the classic LT Science officer. The BOff layout also means you can eschew Tactical Team Conn Officers in favor of other Duty Officers.

The 180 Degree Quantum Torpdeo launcher provides fantastic synergy for a 7-beam broadside, giving you what is, funtionally, a wide-arc classic Photon Torpedo Launcher damage-wise with an increased crit chance and severity.

The Metreon Gas Canister is an interesting hybrid of snare plus reasonable to good damage, but is easily detonated early and does not continue to slow and damage once a target leaves the initial cloud. It shares a small global cooldown with Eject Warp Plasma.

If you want to use Tricobalt mines on a cruiser, this is the one to use them on, IMO. The Excelsior remains a better ship for cannons and turrets, however, thanks to its higher turn rate.

It's fun. The ability to spam T:spread 3 and T:spread 2 is very nice for PVP and PVE play, the torps will clean out STF content nicely. It wouldn't serve much purpose but I wish both Lt. slots were universal, that's just me being greedy. For PVE/PVP game play using the two sci officer powers for offensive things like TB/TBR or CBP can spice up your game a lot.

Hands down the oddessy 3 pack is a better
Deal for your money

The saucer seperation module I'n the tatical model
Is the best setup I'n my opinion.
Jellico....Engineer.....Stargazer KDF Tac
Saphire.. Science.....Ko'el Rom Kdf Tac
Leva........Tactical.....Mailu KDF Sci
