I pretty much never fly escorts. But my understanding is that antiprotion should be for tac captains because of their higher crit rate? phasers = king for procs. polaron = idk. dis = you only need on person running this on team. plasma = everyone and their ma has resists to it. tetryeon = good for back up to switch to as not too many folk resist specifically against it.
my reccomendation is phasers for the proc. ap if you're a tac. but probably someone more familiar with escorts can help you with that.
i had planned on doing a plasma build with a reman set.....i don't hear a lot of good concerning plasma. i'm going to see for myself anyway.
i use disruptors on my multi-vector escort and it works great.
All of the procs in the game are nice bonuses that exist in addition to the weapon's basic function of doing damage, save one. Phaser procs would be and are nasty even if you're doing 0 damage. They can have anywhere from annoying to murderous consequences anytime they activate, all the time, period.
I had a way too long match yesterday involved only 2 Escorts and several Cruisers and Carriers.
Some of those Cruisers really had builds, but the Escort insisted on hitting the good build Cruisers. Anyway, a phaser proc disabling shields was often responsible for killing one of the harder to kill targets. Not having your 50+ % shield resists at your side hurts big time.
