# 1 Cruisers you'd buy?
03-11-2013, 11:02 AM
As per recent interview, Cryptic doesn't sell many cruisers in their store. I would suggest that this is because few of them bring anything really unique or high performance to the table.

How about a Torpedo Destroyer. A ship with reasonable agility (turn rate 9-10), and cruiser style hull and shields. Has only 3/3 standard weapons, but has a 7th weapon slot which can ONLY accept torpedo weapons. A torpedo mounted to this slot has 360 degree targeting. Comes with a unique console that causes your next special torpedo attack to double. Once you trigger the console, you have 30 seconds to use High Yield or Spread and then fire. When you do you get two HY or Spread attacks back to back. 1:30 cooldown? Officer layout should prioritize engineering and then tactical, so possibly XXXX / XX / XXX / X / XX

Such a thing would be... interesting! Different.

So what would you buy? Try to be... vaguely reasonable.

Am currently looking for XXXX XX / XX X / XXX in a 4 3 3 config that turns around 14 with at least a 29000 hull and a 4/3 weps layout.

Try the Krenn or Mobius.
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.
Why the Devs can't make PvE content harder. <--- DR proved me wrong!

Not enough $$$, or lobi. But a c-store option is certainly in my price range.

You don't like the Chel Grett? I know it's not exactly what you're asking for but close. There's even a PvP Sticky for a torp boat build. It has high hull, awesome turn rate, power drain w/ Breen ship consoles...

Just a thought, not a thorough analysis.

I appreciate your suggestion... it would be nice.

I'm just going to uncategorically refuse to buy anything from their store or refrain from doing anything that directly contributes money into their coffers until I have a cruiser worth using. 2500 Zen for a cruiser that can't tank or support very well, can't do decent damage, and comes with a console that is essentiqlly a waste of space...

Would love to put it on my Mirror Star Cruiser, but the developers hadn't seen fit to allow the console to be mounted on the ship. Odd, considering that they have allowed Mirror Patrol Escorts to mount Multi-Vector Attack Modules, and had not bothered to apply this change in reverse.

Now is your opportunity to tell us what that means to you.

I guess a D'Kora Marauder is as close as I'll get. Dabo.
