also.....

Horizon's xtra durable defiant layout:

gear:

4 DHC, 3 turrets (right now i like phased tetryons)

borg deflector and engines, maco shield

consoles:

eng: Cloak, RCS, Borg console (sub Neutronium for RCS if the heat is really on)
sci: 2x Field gens
tac: 4x your weapon type

devices:

Rechargable shield battery (or regular), Subspace field Modulator (Devidian thing?)

boff layout:

TT1, CRF1, APO1, CRF3
TT1, APD1, APO1
EPTS1, RSP1
PH1, TSS2

doffs:

3x evasives, 2x shield distros......all purps if you can

power settings:

attack: 100/25/50/25
speed tanking: 25/75/75/25
break form combat: 25/50/100/25
aux heals: 25/50/25/100

notes: spec this baby close to cruiser stats. heavy on defense and power levels. you should rarely ever use the full aux setting, rely on your speed tanking setting for defensive maneuvers and the full aux setting for when you have to throw that TSS and TT to your cruiser.

notes on piloting: use your cloak wisely, 15 more seconds of you staying cloaked could mean an extra 50k damage in a ten second window when you pay attention to your targets buffs. alpha'ing some guy who has a tac team up is wasting your alpha. this build is about speed tanking. you can easily swap that shield battery for a weapons battery, and only spike every 2 minutes when is comes around. (trust me, you will like what happens when you stop jamming on every power that is available as soon as it is up. stack the buffs people, not enough of you do)

notes on cannons: they are awesome at 3k from target. get good at matching your targets speed. also, if you go jamming on fire all weapons every 2 seconds the damn AI will jack up your cannon timing. try putting your weapons on auto, and only hitting the button once. focus all your button mashing energy on throttle control.


and to end it, wow, im feeling chatty today......

It used to be, the order your weapons were was the order they fired. So DBB to the far right always made it last. That doesn't seem to be the case any more. Even with my torp in #4 it fires before my cannons. May be wrong but just a observation. In the past I relied on it for EPIC BO3 critz.

this is correct.

cryptic has been so inconsistant with how weapons fire and when, and they said they fixed that last "won't fire" bug.... but it happened to me last night. i have had far better experience when i just stop hitting the button constantly. bind everything else to another key if you have to, leave fire weapons off your main bind tho.

I've learned a lot just from reading that post without even being in game yet, horizon, thanks. (And if anyone can talk about the Defiant it's horizon, I've seen it before and it's an absolute monster. Thing refuses to die and pretty much makes a mockery out of the other team).

It punches all other spike damage in the nutz......and then it LAUGHS.

But put away spread and use high yield.

If you're hitting hull. If you can't manage to hit hull though I guess that's another issue. But that's pretty much why some people don't use the Torpedoes. They'll tell you its due to skill points or some ****. Whatever.
If I don't respond to posts on this forum don't be offended. I don't sub or follow any of them.

Lol. You should follow the advice that experienced pvper posted, damn can't find the post, he said the "stock" ship with 50 power to all levels is the best. I'm sure you'll make the pandas proud :p
