The jem'hadar ship is a pure pvp escort, for STF u have far better escorts, a MVAE or a fleet is more suitable.
Is a rare ship, they will run out soon in the exchange because the event was short (in the other hand, u can still get a galor..), that is the reason of the price.
I have the MVAE and the Fleet escort, they both do normal and elite modes equally well. MVAE is usually my favorite as I can throw a gravity well if stuff gets sticky, but the class of ship at T4 and T5 has no problems keeping up with anything so far in an STF.
As far as the JHAS, It's like a T6ish escort ship, you can run it best with a TAC, although you can run any ship with any captain with little penalty if you play "smart". It really only matters if your going to captain kirk it through PvE or your desire is to dabble in PvP.
It's important to keep in mind that as long as you don' t mind its looks, the galor can out excelsior the excelsior, and it gains all the benefits from the jem hadar set, just like bug ship. I still think the D'kora out does both of them. Its essentially a maneuverable cruiser that can mount dual cannons.
your best bet in that ship would be a tac captain, that will give you the most dps, there is some room for experimentation with both the universal boff slots, so...just experiment i guess, but think it through...if you 've a tac officer toon this ship is a beaut i interchange tween it and the armitage often.
I note that the Jem'Hadar Attack Ship costs twice as much as the other special reward vessels (Cardassian Galor and Ferengi D'kora?) on the exchange. What makes it twice as much? Is there a reason, or is it just the cosmetics of the Jem'Hadar Attack Ship that people are after?
Because it's OP. It's hands down the best Escort in the game. It has the bonuses of a Tac Escort, a variable BO loadout that can be customized into a Fleet Escort, high hull, and turns like a BoP.
It literally combines all the best aspects of the Tac & Fleet escort, and then gives it the turn radius of a BoP.
Would the Jem'Hadar be good for an Engineering Captain, that is who I was planning on using it for?
That depends on how ya look at it? but if your gonna use a Jem'Hadar Attack Ship
just make sure your Abilities are at a good level along with your Bridge Crew this way
you should be able to survive a long dragged out Dog Fight with no problem :wink:
