However, they can only be mounted on a Vesta variant, not on any other ships, so they are limited another way.
I think the aux cannons are only 1/ship as a selling strategy, so many will buy the 3 pack (or even worse, buy all separately after seeing one only has one cannon), as they think they cant get more than one :S
its a smart move from cryptic tho

Or it could just be the fact that they always put bizarre default weapons on things. Have you seen the weapons that BoPs come with?

Yeah, they imply that you have to have the three pack to get 3x cannons, even though you can just dismiss and reclaim while pulling the cannons off if you have just one. Granted, it's easier to do it off the three ships if you have ship inventory slots for all three at once.

Yeah, bizarre stuff on most ships, though I've not seen the default on BoPs. I've only seen one ship that came with a turret... It was a Science ship and the turret was in the fore slot... They put a beam array and torps aft as the default layout on most escorts.

I have started to test some alternate weapon setups for the ship, and there is a similar one to this, that seems to be quite more effective in pve, so with the results I should come back next week, as I am talking significant dps increase according to my initial tests

as mentioned above, I started testing the crithx3 disruptor setup for the ship, and it does seem to work for pve. it maybe a less constant high number (500 dps difference downards) it can make up for it. my first test with them, pretty much broke my ise 10k dps record, and later I as I compared all the different games, the increase is coming from the weapons side, and not from stuff like photonic fleet, or my pets. so for pve I would suggest getting crithx3 though they are kinda rare on the market (however not expensive)

I remember you saying something about a "Beam Build" for the Vesta class, and I was wondering if you could post that setup?

it is a work in progress. I was hesitating, because the equipment for it is expensive, and I wanted to save some dili for the new stuff in five days. if its a new faction, I would obviously need to unlock a char slot for it. that is solved tho (unless it will be a paying faction, but then I would not care for it much), I am buying the last rly decisive equipment now (but even then, I am not at the best possible or accaptable state).

at this point it is dealing 8k consistant dps tho, so it should be fine for posting soon (on sunday maybe after I have seen the results with the new stuff)

edit.: first two runs indicate a flat 1-2k dps bonus
