So in my endless quest to improve my Recluse Build, I have begun to wonder if there are any good "shutdown" or "vampire" builds for the Recluse. And by "shutdown" builds, I mean taking the enemy subsystems (I usually PVE, btw) and saying "You don't need those subsystems anymore," or "you don't need all that power, gimme some!"
Basically, I want to completely shut the enemy ship down while my fighters wreak havoc on it. That's the end goal of the build I'm looking for.

If you have a good build/suggestions, post them here. If you don't have any good suggestions for the build I'm looking for but you have some good suggestions for other Recluse builds, you can still post your ideas here.



EDIT: Of course, at 1:00 in the morning, I post this thread in the wrong section. -_- If a moderator could move this to the Fed Shipyards, that would be appreciated. ./facepalm

I think you're limiting the effectiveness of the build by sticking to Fed, sorry.

If I've read the forums correctly, the best power draining build involves a KDF carrier with Polaron beams. Why KDF? Only they get Plasmonic Leech and Power Siphon Drones, the latter of which at least is required for super-drain builds, as far as I know.

That said, Polaron and Energy Siphon. Possibly Phased Polaron, so you get two power-killer procs.

Yeah. My main char is fed though, so that complicates things. I've heard Plasmonic Leech and those Drones are super effective. Too bad I can't get either (although the Plasmonic Leech console will probably, one day be in a lock box.)

ES for added cruelty, breen set for added ES, and add on chronitons for even more shutdown.
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.

unless it was changed recently, siphon triggers global timer on tyken and viceversa.
