Hakaishin is a formidable PvPer who knows how to pilot and get the most out of the dreadnought. Most dreads are piloted by noobs that will be easily picked off by a kid with good twitch reflexes flying an escort... enahncing the rep that the dread is nothing more than a noob symbol that says come kick my ass.

Hak is doing a public service by educating those interested in flying a difficult ship that is not meant to be the ultimate for any specific purpose in a PvP team (healer/tank/dps.... we can all think of superior examples, right?). Piloting a dread effectively encompasses elements of all three, throw in the cloak & lance with the maneuverability of a satiated pig... it is its own unique challenge.

To each their own.

Always liked my dread, wanted to go phaser lancing. I'm looking for a captain, gear, and BO ability build for a PVP Dreadnaught. I've found a few helpful links....

http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...ht=dreadnaught
http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...ht=dreadnaught
http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...ht=dreadnaught

However nothing really solid. I am posting this in the PVP forums as well in the event it is more suited there.


Thank you all in advance!!
hey...that second link was my post..i have no-idea why it was archived, but it really helped, if anyone needs really advanced help with the dreadnaught, i can help with that. might make another post of something..

Thank you Chille, though this man is indeed entitled to his opinion... though he misses something worth noting in my case, that makes it an exception.

You see, playhard88... I only have 1 useful arm.

Shrapnel from an explosion in the 2nd Battle of Fallujah (Operation: Phantom Fury) pierced the nerves in my left arm (and to this day, hasn't been fully removed).

Because of this, I actually cannot feel anything from my elbow down.

Naturally, I'm certain you can imagine, this makes gaming in a PvP environment rather difficult.

Especially if I'm trying to fly around in a fast-whipping Escort.

That said, I started investigating alternatives. I started with Excelsiors but for some reason didn't really like their style of play, and were still a bit difficult for me to manage given this limitation due to their increased speed.

Dreadnought is slow, but has teeth. Hits harder than ANY other ship in the game, bar none. No other weapon in the game can match the 100k+ damage I can produce in 1 hit in PvP. It's slow, and easier for me to control.

Its cloak allows me to take my time in maneuvering into a position I want before I engage.

I hope that answers why I am apparently such a "noob" in your eyes... yet somehow manage to win.

Though I've to admit, I'd like to see you do better in my position.

That said, I enjoy my Dreadnought. I win with my Dreadnought.

I need no other reason to use it.
