# 1 Best DPS?
03-04-2013, 05:45 PM
I've been systematically restructuring my builds lately, and I did my feds first (since I lucked out on a Wells and bought the Kumari). Now I'm moving to one of my 4 LGs (well 3 but the 4th is close), as she is next in line.

I'm considering a change of ships while I am at it.

Which are the top 3 KDF ships right now, and in which order, for pure DPS potential? I prefer flying escorts/raiders/destroyers (and hate raptors cause they ugly), but I'm open minded to battlecruisers.

Thanks

Fleet level Birds of Prey for decloak alpha's, including the Fleet B'rel as a torp/mine vessel.
I lile the Fleet Somraw raptor and the Fleet Vorcha is an excellent battlecruiser.
The Garumba and Kar'fi are evil under the right build, which basically can be said for all the vessels above.

I know I probably have to relinquish my klingon license but I really hate the way the b'rel looks.

How does the Temporal Destroyer match up?

Temporal Destroyer is actually pretty good, partly considering it's a lockbox ship and partly considering what the other DPS option are for the KDF. It definatly makes up a bit in survivability where the the Qin Raptor for example lacks with such a turn rate (basically meaning that both have a Base 15 Turn Rate, but the Destroyer has far better survivability options at its disposal than the Qin Raptor becauseof the way the ship is setup).

Pretty much all the DPS ships that Roach described can be evil whilst setup right like he said, but I'd never leave my Fleet Tor'Kaht ever again

This. BoPs rawk. Just don't expect to tank much, OP, and you'll do fine in a BoP. Can do everything from sci-boat to healer to spike damage. . .it won't do any of those jobs as well as a ship designed for said job, but it will do them well enough.

Well, first it depends on what you want to play, PvE, PvP, both etc.

The fleet Tor'Kaht does very well in both when setup right. It is pretty much a fat escort.
C-Store Bortasq can be a mean beast as well. If you are given the time to bring your
big guns to bear.
Fleet raptors and BoPs.
And don't underestimate the Guramba, it is a nast spike damage ship with the Javelin.
But it is getting slowly showing its age, might be worth waiting on the fleet version of it.

And of course there is the usual suspect, the Jem Hadar Attack Ship.

If it's PVP you're after

It isn't possible to get greater DPS than that. It's only for 2 seconds, but that's 1 second more than most ships can take.

There's also many PVE videos up there with different ships and builds. Maybe you'll see one to spark your interest in a particular ship and you can come back with more questions on it.
