A part of me thinks the HEC is made for Engineers when used w/mini AoE APO console, Victory is life set bonus.

TT, CVS1 or APD, CRF2, APO3

EptA, Aux2batt1, ES2 or Dem2

ET, Aux2batt1

EptW or EPTS1, Epts2 or RSP1 or even Aux2Damp (10 sec shared cooldown w/Aux2batt)

HE1

Shield Batt, Eng Batt

It has Eng self Tank Captain abilities to go w/mini Tac and Sci captain abilities. The Lt Uni allows flexibility to slot more offensive Tac Torp/BO2 or Sci Debuff/Repair abilities as needed. It can be damaged focused w/Dem2, team rep w/ES2. Still have EPST2 or RSP1 for it's own shield defenses. With the rep system repair bonuses you don't need as many self shield repairs.

It cannot turn so its main armaments are useless, even with a purple MXII RCS console. More one cannot afford else its hull will be paper thin.

With its subsystem targetting, it seems to be clearly intended to use beams. Has anyone tried that?

Well it's useful and all but I still haven't tried it, probably same reason as everyone else: We're all tacs with JHASs >.> Sacrificing a cannon for subsystem targeting seems pointless. Although, I guess it wouldn't be the end of the world to use beams over cannons in this carrier. I don't know...


I've always felt any ship with native subsystem targeting should have one native beam to work with it, but that's just my opinion.

I can't say much about either to be honest.

The Dominion Dreadnought is about as much use for PvP as the other slow turning carriers, but it'll be awesome in STFs and other PvE contentwhere you can happily equipp it with DHCs. The dominion fighters are the best DPS pets in the game, no doubt. Phaser procs, cannon rapid fire 2, quantum torps and beam overloads will wreck NPCs.

The Dominion Heavy Escort Carrier seems to be fine for PvP *IF* properly set up. With the dominion fighters it'll be quite powerful, more so then the FHEC

Must admit starting to wonder that myself.

The bottom line is this. For the main flagship of the Dominion, I was not expecting a ship this fragile.

That's another of STO paradox. The bigger and more powerful the ship should be (judging by TV series), the more crap it usually is

It's Polaron procs, and the Jem'Hadar fighters suck, and the Jem'Hadar attack ship fighters are bugged to hell and do weak sauce dmg, if and when they decide to attack.

1 look at its station setup shows that it would literally be the most fragile thing at end game

The HEC will get turn update from 12 to 13...I guess the sales aren't that great
