its a great doff for ships that can use AtB, but that escort isn't one of them, it can already double up all its tac skills, and you need the LT slot for more useful things.

i would suggest 2 purple or 3 blue damage control doffs so you can run 1 copy of EPtS1 and 1 copy of EPtA1 and have them both on full up time, and then ether AtS or RSP. sci skills i would use TSS1, and HE2. HE with all that aux you will have will be great for healing your hull, and TSS can be a life saver when used when you start to take heavy fire.

the rest of the doffs i would use BFI. but theres always new doffs, i don't know enough about them yet to recommend them though

Whether I agree with DDIS or disagree, makes no difference. Doesn't matter if YOU agree or disagree either. But when you see a statement like this from him you KNOW that means something is BORKED with the system. DDIS LIVES to get information. I'm sure he calls it 'data' or 'input' when he's muttering over a spreadsheet. Freaking Johnnie Five rebooted.

Another guy I know doffs about 27 hours a day. I'm pretty sure he no longer bathes, and only says he has a cat so as to pass off the giant litter box next to his desk. I mentioned that I was stacking battery doffs and asked his opinion.

Me: (sultry, somewhat smokey voice) So......I'm stacking battery doffs.
Him: (smitten, yet obviously confused) wut?
Me: (lilting, lyrical laughter,like rainbows) The on use battery doffs, I'm using three.
Him: (does drool have a sound?) wut?


So. Back to my question. What think? 3 doffs. I use dual system batteries. One or two SDO, Hazards, or tech for the 25 to aux when cloaked. (I use that as it takes effect as soon as you try to cloak, nice boost0

Oh mighty and powerful PvP Ship Building Gods of the Forums, I come to you in my time of need.

Let me just start by saying...Pvp--not my forte--in fact I tend to stay far far away from it. BUT! You fine folks of this particular section of the forums know you're stuff when building ships so I come to you on both knees begging for help.

Recently, I have found myself playing a bit of the Red Side. Got myself a little science captain who's closing in on 40. I find myself eyeballing the hell out of that Vo'quv Carrier (Fed side I bomb about in cruisers, and I know about the Vo'quv's terribad turn rate - lets just get that out of the way)

Now! I plan on rocking me some carrier when I hit 40, and am deadset on this particular one (Mainly cause it's just way too damn big) but from all my scouring of the inter-webs I can't for the life of me find some advice that pertains to me (a science captain) and what I do find is all about some torpedoes or turrets (both of which I am not a fan of)

I don't mind playing the healer - in fact I prefer it - but I'd like to get something going that'll let me do solo/dailies with ease. Not sure where to start--so here I am.

In essence (TLDR):
- Gonna rock a Vo'quv
- Need decent build
- Preferably beam boat (I hate torps and turrets)
- Want suggestions

Whew...think I've said what I need to. Well...except maybe...
...Help...

<3

EDIT: Sidenote - This is the only ship/faction I have considered PvPing in - so, any recommendations on healboat/support ship with this is also welcome!

if anything you said about me was true, there would be a lot more builds posted in this thread already! i am contently reminded by how much i don't know or didn't get right, yesterday its particle gens not buffing torp plasma proc, today it was APD lol. i only started parceling damage logs the other day after all this time. though i admit, looking at the numbers is slightly arousing...

were do you get all those dual batteries? they seem like a rare commodity to just eat through all the time. i got 1 of those very rare batery doffs, mant eng i think, from an officer exchange. boy was i suprised. have just been hanging on to it too. same thing with one of those SNB doffs, love those officer exchanges. those aux buffing tech doffs look very nice for bops, especially brels.



the majority of doffs out there i just don't have personal experience with, and wile some of the new ones in the newest pack are very interesting, they are all rare and expensive at the moment, assuming you can find them in an exchange category at all.

any ship with a low number of eng stations i would recommend damage control doffs so EPtX skills don't eat up those limited slots. have at least 2 LT eng slots? think about a 2 AtB build then, except in the steamrunners case. besides that, the extra shield heals from BFI doffs, cant go wrong there.

sci ships especially rely on their doffs heavily to be effective. without doffs, most sci skills are simply below a good effectiveness level.

the next few things im gunna post hrere are some sci ship builds from the old thread, some bop builds and some carrier builds. when ever i give myself time to do that. might be carriers first.

these 3 things i have little experience in, but i know the abilities and how they fit together well, so i should be able to come up with a decent baseline to get started on.

We need Kilawpilath (webdeath) to do another Carrier guide.

It's linked in my siglink, in case anyone is interested in his knowledge.

one general rule of thumb: its better to have all beams for KDF than anything else (especially with science class KDF[ships]). One torpedo is fine (for authenticity purposes).
And UFP work very well with an assortment of weapons types.

Yes dual system batteries get very expensive. I'm not even sure how I got the doffs. Packs or grinding who knows? Combined the two seem pretty good.

They make my DC's shine!


Cheers happy flying!

Thissler, I also use the batt DOff and I'd be super interested to learn if you get double procs by using dual batteries.

vids and guides and stuff
