Alrighty ran quite a few more good runs of khit using the 3 dhcs/1 torp loadout.

7215 dps is the average.

Moving back to my old loadout (1DBB 1 DHC 1DC and torp) and will post again when i have a good sample.

on a side note.. is it worth it now to grab the fleet weapons? or should i just wait til season 7 comes? (already grabbed a turret and 1dhc)

Opinions vary on this. I don't like the Advanced Fleet weapons.

I have 4x Phaser DHC MK XII [crtd]x3, and love them.

So basically i need to take out both my torp's and just go energy? I have an armitage now, and find im getting smoked with ease. I use all 3 elite omega pieces, so it seems like what someone has told me was wrong and i should have went with mako? I have 2 dual heavy anti protons fore, 1 dual beam fore, and turrets in back. I have all the proper consoles.

No one can agree which is better. Play with what you prefer. Try different configurations and see which you like more.

Omega set is more offensive oriented. MACO is more defensive oriented. I prefer the MACO shields and deflector. I use Advanced Fleet Hyper-Impulse engines.

In order for us to help you with what is wrong with your build, we need to know what your BOFF layout is and what your skill point distribution is. Also, what do you mean by "proper" consoles?

This is a repost of my build. It's change since the lat time I posted it. This post is in responce to a post on another thread. I told them I'd repost it here.

This is not an 'unkillable' build but it really dishes out some damage and has great tanking.

Speed and agility in battle are the key to an escorts survival.

# 756 Curiosity

Darn curiosity got the better of me.

I recieved a purple XII Prefire Chamber from Childrens Toys.

I couldn't find the GOOD online ship builder online. It seems to be gone. I could find a couple cheapos and the skills builder but not the ship builder.

Sooo...

Rather than selling the Prefire Chamber for the 2.5 mill that it was worth, I replaced an APMR and low and behold......... I showed an immediate loss of 40 DPS in sector space.

Needless to say, I put the Mag Regulator back and sold the Prefire Chamber for peanuts.

Next time I'll follow my own advice that I'd written months ago in this thread.

How about the Retrofit Blockade Runner (T5 Steamrunner Class)?

Hi guys this is my current setup but i will be upgrading now I have the ZEN. Any advice on what to change in my setup?

USS Warspite: Patrol escort

(all weapons borg variant)

Fore.
XI DISRUPTER DHC - XII PLASMA DHC - XII TETRYON DHC - XII QUANTUM TORPEDO

Aft.
XI ANTI PROTON TURRET - XII PLASMA TURRET XI - POLARON TURRET

Assimilated deflector XI

Assimilated engines XI

Mako Sheilds XII

Eng.

Sci.
Two XI emitter arrays

I also have the full Breen and jem'hadar sets - I like the breen engines but I don't want to lose the borg regeneration bonus. Is it worth losing it for better engines?

Cheers

Maybe things have changed since I last played regularly, just started up again, but the stacking on the Pre-Fire Chambers was knocked down in the Season 1 release because of how broken they were if I recall correctly. Have they been de-nerfed since then? That wouldn't seem very wise considering there was no other reason to play anything but Escort because of how ridiculous they were then.

I think 2x is where you'd want to be IMO. I do remember the days of loading up with 4x and just tearing up the silly people trying to play Cruisers then though.

Why AP weapons with the Jem'Hadar set? If you were running Polaron or Tetryon, that would make more sense (because of the Flow Capacitor buff). But, really, the engines are pretty bad.

I'd recommend the Omega deflector and impulse if you want more damage. Or, go with the MACO deflector (for more defense) and an Advanced Fleet Hyper-Impulse engine.

You are going to do less damage than someone who is focused on one energy type. A lot less.

I'd recommend you pick a proc you like and focus on that.
