# 1 Help with Varanus Build
11-30-2012, 09:01 PM
Hi, need a bit of advice. Even though I've played since F2P and I have 9 characters, I've never used a Science ship before. The Varanus is okay, but I think I can do a lot better in the damage department. That might be wishful thinking on my part though. Also, my character is a Tac, and I know there are better ships out there for a tac, but hes a Gorn....and we kind of lack a better choice.

Anyway heres the build I currently have. The weapons are currently Polarized Disruptor mk12 [CrtH]x2. These will probably change to Fleet Mk12s soon once I can figure out what weapons I want to use...the beams were just cheap on the exchange. I know that the borg engine and assimilated console aren't part of a set anymore, so either of them can go.

So Any advice on upping the DPS would be appreciated. Do dual beams in the front and turrets in the back work? Seems like it would on paper but I'm but sure. I've also heard of going heavy on torpedoes, but I'm not sure there either.
