Which duty officers are you using? I know you mentioned exocomp but what about the others?

Which bridge officer traits are you using? Efficient? Leadership? Romulan crit chance boosting ones?

Kudos for putting time and effort into making the most effective DPS vesta you could, and sharing it on an open forum.

yeah, I forgot to post them, and am not near to the game. anyway, here is what I remember, and will give names laterz

doffs:
gravimetric scientist for aftershock grav well
space warfare specialist for 10% dmg against borg
a jem'hadar doff (I dunno which one is exactly that) for tac team cooldown and attack pattern dmg bonus
a doff to reduce evasive manouvers CD
exocomp for dmg and battery power bonus

boffs
2 human
3 sauran with efficient trait (though the more the marrier) or some numbers around this

I have not been experimenting with the new romulan crit boffs, they will be the way to go, but as they are still being balanced, I did not want to invest into them, they cost a fortune

lately I have been running it with full weapons power. it is not rly special, since "I am raping the idea of science", but its fun. against tac cubes its not advised to go up against like that, especially since lately I have only been paired with sub 3k DPS beamscorts, so that is not advised, but if you want to boost a bit of your grav wells, you do not lose much of your tanking (short term, you are better at tanking)

I also checked the aux cannons with max aux power, and max weapons. it is a 2k dps loss, which is not that bad, in the grand scheme of things. the tanking with high aux is pretty easy, so loss in shield power is not a problem

still it is a dps none the less, but atleast it can work. (though there is not much point to do it)

yeah, I got around that much too. however there is some high tanking loss in there. the borg engines plus deflectors should help that (borg engines give aux power I think, not sure atm, so you can transfer it to weapon), and if you use the usual maco shields, you would gain some weapon power too when being shot at

nah, not a high tanking loss for me. 125 aux pretty much sets up some sweet healing.

That adapted set is pretty sweet, still get a great structural bonus and good sci abilities boost from deflector

I can solo an eliteSTF cube without much more than a scratch to my hull.

Had to go look at the new power calc first, now to answer your question. No, the Aux DHCs are not limited to one per ship. It only comes with one, but you can dismiss and reclaim as many times as you like to get more. However, they can only be mounted on a Vesta variant, not on any other ships, so they are limited another way.

Just like getting a "set" of pretty blue phasers from my TOS Connie. That's nice to know. (Only those can be used on any ship, unlike the ADHC.) Got it. Thanks!
