# 42 Now what with Season Seven
11-12-2012, 02:57 PM
I would like to say thank you for a simple approach for us. I have followed your set and it is great for me. However, could you please update guide the for all the season seven updates. I am confused on the amount of gear out there in the Fleet system. I am not sure how the conversion rate is going to work either... Live long and prosper, Mac.

I changed some of the recommended gear away from dilithum store items to pve mission rewards. It is now much cheaper to get the recommended items.

I also included additional comments on the gear selection to adress some issues with STF gear being locked away due to S7.

Obviously there is more than one way to build a healer. But think the reason that one uses an engineer as main healer and not a sci or tac is because of the superior self-defense of the engineer. And armor consoles increase the defensive strength of the ship.

A little bit more healing here and there can help occasionally, but a dead main healer will certainly get the team in trouble, so it is paramount that he stays alive.

First off Thank you for this guide. I plan on following it as best as I can. Which leads me to the one complaint I have with it.

Like every other guide I have found on the forums, it is layed out for max level cap, purple geared don't M.A.C.O. me slap you with a fish player.

What gear would a PVE grinding F2P user like myself use? I am an Engineer who can't seem to break away from his cruiser, although when I hit captain I am tossing around the idea of getting an escort with my promotion.

It's tough to understand what you're asking here. Do you mean what should you do while levelling? (In all honesty, the non-facetious, dead serious answer is, "Whatever you want").

If you mean what should you do once you hit 50, the million-dollar question is really just whether you intend to PvP or not. If you do, stick to your snoozer and she'll serve you well. If not, an escort'll always get you the best bang for your buck in PvE.

In the latest update to the guide I have significantly reduced the dilithium cost for gear. Most of the suggested weapons are now available through PVE missions. I also included suggestions for an alternate deflector/engine/shield for the time before you can acquire the borg deflector/engine and maco shield.

For an engineer, a cruiser is a good choice for pvp.

For levelling (if you simply want to level fast) I suggest an escort with Dual (Heavy) Cannons, turrets and Cannon Scatter Volley. It really doesn't matter much what gear you have during levelling. White gear of the highest level you can equip is perfectly fine for PVE.
