I was excited about these ships until I saw the ho-hum stats. I was hoping for some OPness - but got some standard HEC - about on par with the Fed HEC - which is account wide and will have a fleet version which will put it up over this in my opinion.

The Dread - well it's just lame stats and boff layout wise. There is only 1 way that they could get me to pony up for this and that is to make it size appropriate at 2 or 3x the size of the Galaxy - so that it is purely a novelty thing when in any PvE match.

Yeah...they really should be reversed.

# 103 Stat Type on Turn-Rate?
01-23-2013, 07:13 PM
I was reading that the post was not correct or had a typo and was wondering if that were true of the Jem'Hadar HEC Turn-rate. 12 seems very low for an expensive & somewhat rare ship considering other Escorts (with fighters or not) range from 15 - 17. And the Bug Ship is 20, so Dominion obviously have experience with manuverbility

Hope this is corrected for tomorrow.

Cheers,
Zoo

Funny I use DHC on a Voquv and on a Bortasqu all the time in elite STFs. I even guarded the kang with a 4DHC 4 turret bort once just to prove it can be done. It doesn't work to good in pvp though but I did try it a few times and ended up 3rd in damage and kills, not as much as if I would have used beams or single cannons on it, but it still worked. With the right spec, gear, doffs and piloting skill its quite manageble in pve. Soloing cubes on elite is very easy with a DHC bortas to.

This new jem dreadnought will be great in pve with DHC, and will do somewhat ok in pvp using single cannons or beams, but its main failingin pvp is that a ship that turns that slow kind of needs more heals like a bortas has.

that huge dreadnaught in a bridge made for a small ship like the attack ship? come on. is this supposed to be "the" star trek game or not? this was the perfect opportunity to see some really cool jem'hadar bridge designs and you guys dropped the ball.
PWE needs to do something about the lack of environment artists on the STO team. Taco-Dude must be seriously overworked for Cryptic to release these large carriers with that small attack ship bridge.

True I guess for common white ones. I guess I just want to see what the advanced or elite variants have on them to see how they differ to other pets.

Details on advanced or elite Jemmy fighters and bug ship frigates would be nice.

Can someone point me to where the blog talks about XI and XII Dominion space and ground sets? I cannot find them in blogs 30 & 31. I know the XI sets come from doing the featured episode. No idea about Mk XII.

Hopefully they actually put in advanced jem fighters, unlike the recluse and its widows. I know the blog mention scaling versions of the attack ships, so there MIGHT be fighters, but...
