Title says it all. I'm working on building my Engineer whom is flying the Galaxy-R into a tank for STFs. Current build and weapons loadout aren't important, as I'm expecting to throw it all out and go from scratch anyway. Suffice to say I have the full Aegis set, Mark X weapons arrays / torps and my Borg console.
listen to that guy, he knows what he is talking about. that a good tank ship build. equip some scorpion fighters if you want, they dont draw agro, but the extra damage helps a wee bit. If the enemies shields are down the torpedos do about 500 damage each I think. Plus you can send them in to distract the target for a few seconds before you assault.
EPS console? It does not do anything at all other then restore your power to your base power settings. Which is useful if you do a lot of full impulse, along with power changing. other then that,
1. no, it does not give you shield boost in their recovery.
2. no, it doesnt give you bonuses over the max power setting which is a hardcap of 125, period.
3 no, it does nothing to boost your weapon power.
Its design is only to restore your power settings, mostly just those cruisers that run it are pvp'rs. When I pve, I take it off and run the mono at +35 kinetic resist, blows my kinetic resist to 50%
Rest yeah pretty standard fair for PVE tanker for a G(r).
I don't use the Borg sets on mine. I see it posted everywhere, but I prefer to be different and use what works for me. So, in keeping with that mindset, I prefer the maco adapted shield and engines, a fleet warp core of you have access (preferably one that adds weapon or shield power to aux), and a special deflector (purple, mkXII, +26.6 to shield system, structural integrity, and shield emitters), plus a tachyokinetic converter for added crit and turn rate. 6 phaser arrays and 2 photon torps (switch between regular and bio-molecular for undine), and a defensive aux2batt setup. Basically, I can hit hard while sacrificing nothing from my defensive style of flying. Suffice it to say, I've flown through and defeated the voth surrounding the towers solo, as well as taken 3rd place and up in stfs like crystalline catastrophe and starbase 24. Always keep your ship moving and rotating your shield facings.
