I was just wondering a few things I'm running a Tac in a retro and I'm always trying to constantly improve my build, I have been looking at the weapon maintenance & efficiency skill , Now I realise that these skills improve certain engineering abilities like EPTW and DEM and the efficiency is only a benefit if your wep power gets to 75 or below but I find that in combat (especially in PvP) my cannons seem to slow down immensely will the above mentioned skills improve my cannons refire rate in anyway or would that be just wasted points?

Also any recommendations from other cannon users is greatly appreciated and welcomed.

Thanks in Advance guys

cannons?

so i assume your in an escort?

EPTW not only increases weapon power but also damage for a short duration.

DEM i dont use very much because of the cost.
DEM on an escort = fail... i dont care how you look at it...
DEM <<<<<<<<<< EPTS and EPTW.... the EPTS at least keeps you alive or doesn't require a starcrusier having to spam heal you that much.

DEM is great on crusiers tho. because of the extra engie slots... however, once again... DEM will cost you... either a survival skill, or another offensive skill, and DEM should only be looked at once u max'd out your universal cooldowns for Emergency power to X skills.

The highest DPS Crusiers will:

1. Emergency power to Weapons 3
2. EPS Transfer 3
3. Nadion Inversion.
4. FAW 3
5. DEM3.

But u can see DEM is the LAST on the list, and you can see a crusier is typically a beam boat.

That is a good question, and one that I would also like the answer too .

Thanks

You can't improve your cannon fire rate (Dual heavy cannons etc.)... but you can increase the damage of your DHCs if you use 4 prefire chambers. You will shoot your DHC most of the time so it's better to maximise their damage. If your a tac i recommend using Aegis Impulse +Aegis Shield + Borg Deflector/console. The Impulse gives you a slightly improvement to your tactical buffs. (Attack pattern Alpha +3% damage for example).
