# 1 I need help again...
01-11-2013, 04:28 PM
I'm looking to improve my Tac/scort, I think I've done a fairly good job thusfar but it does need some work, I fly the RA patrol escort, I own an MVAE but I put it down for a while and haven't picked it up since (something to do with a lack of DCE doffs), so here is what I have thus far

Weapons
Fore: 3 Adv Fleet Polaron DHC [Dmg]x3 [Acc], Mk XII Quantum torp [Borg]
Aft: Mk XII Polaron turret Mk XII [Borg], Mk XII Quantum torp [Borg], Adv Fleet Polaron Beam Array [Dmg]x3 [Acc]

Equipment
FULL MACO/Omega (Both Mk XII, can't decide which to use)

Consoles
Eng: Borg, 2x Neutronium Mk XI (Blue
Sci: Subspace jump, Field gen Mk XI (Blue)
Tac: Quantum torp console, 3x Polaron console

Boffs
CMDR Tac: TT1, CSV1, HYT3, AP:O3
LTC Tac: TS1, CRF1, AP:O1
LT Eng: EPtS1, Aux2SIF1
Ens Eng: EPtS1
LT Sci: HE1, TSS2

Doffs
2x Conn (TT), Conn (Evasives), 2x Projectile (All blue)

Power levels (Using Omega set)
Weapons: 84/50
Shields: 54/25
Engines: 110/100
Aux: 29/25

Power levels (Using MACO set)
Weapons:125+/100
Shields: 65/35
Engines: 50/40
Aux: 29/25

I'm personally a huge fan of using one DBB fore and using it to deliver a BO3 alpha.

What's your BOff setup.

Also why are you having issues with DCEs? You can get a purple one for 1 mil ECs if you're rank 4 engineering. Also the two tac team ones are unnecessary since you have the ability to run two copies of TT. But until I know your BOff setup, can't offer you more advice.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

Not bad. But without seeing your boffs, personally I'd probably take out the quantum torp console and put in another polaron console. You're hitting more frequently with your cannons, why not buff them as much as possible.

Also I run my power levels slightly different than your MACO version.
Weapons set to 100
Shields 25
Engines 50
Aux 25

Also, and again this is personal taste I guess, but I'd only run omega to make full use of the tetryon glider being spec'd into flow capacitors. Otherwise I prefer MACO

Why are you running your weapon power levels so low?

Sorry about missing the boff skills guys, I typed this up at 2am, I have updated the build post to include them

I only run weapons that low on the Omega set so I can make the most of dodge-scorting with it.

My poor tac doesn't get played much and due to recent investments (Mk XI Purple tet consoles) on my main, I'm kinda running low on funds...
