# 1 Tank/DPS Scimitar Build
11-07-2013, 01:41 PM
For those of you who seem to think that the Scimitar is squishy and cannot tank, please take a look at the build I have made here:

http://skillplanner.stoacademy.com/?...sscimitar_2438

I cannot stress enough that I see people hating on the Scimitar and it's lack of survivability. And that any survivability comes at the cost of DPS. This build is my own personal build and has been thoroughly tested. Other Scimitar's blow up while mine keeps right on going. Recent logs from the Advanced Combat Tracker has shown an ENC Dps upwards of 6,000 or more with a total damage output of around 6 mil in Khitomer Vortex Elite (not doing probe duty). I understand this build is expensive, but trust me...you'll be happier in the end. I promise.

you are getting about 1/5th of that ships dps.

Cryptic.
Figure out and address the players path of least resistance to reward. this one thing is THE consistent factor undermining all your efforts. be that crafting, raids or starbase projects.

you an get way more DPS with Romulan plasma beams and APB3 and A2B/DEM/EPTW/FAW
Marion Doff/3 Purple Tech Doffs and a beam coolddown doff. I just saw one in Kithomer take out one whole side gate/both cubes and both transformers before the other 4 of use got one transformer down.

specific scimi stuff il let someone else answer fully, but my engie can sustain 8 to 10 k dps in pve. couldnt stop probes in vortex if it didnt.

go with an aux2faw build if you want the real damage.

on a cursory look i come up with this
http://skillplanner.stoacademy.com/?build=ktahscimi_0

others could probably give you something better.
fill with aux2bat doffs

I guess the bliss is now fading, since everyone pretty much enlightened you, how low that dps is.

if you have sub 15k DPS in a scimi, you are just doing something wrong

You do realize that it is the Falchion (Engineering) Variant, right? Meant to be flown by an Engineer; not a Tactical Officer.

that doesnt exist in this game, whoever told you that engineers should only be put in eng ability leaning ships needs to shut up.

as much as an engie is pretty much a liability in space they can be put in any ship.
mine spends most of its time in a saber at the moment.
