Squishy?


The Fleet Excelsior has a 1.1 Shield Mod and base 42.9k hull.

Which, using dedicated napkin math, will be north of 10k shields per facing and 55k+ hull.

Yes!!! There are at least three in my fleet alone. I fly a RA Assault Cruiser that does heavy end game spike damage. Just use plasma weapons.

Assuming equal heal support for a spike cruiser and escort I'd say yes.

Fleet excelsior, fleet assault cruiser refit can be unbelievably lethal.

The real determining factor is pilot skill. Your escort will always have better maneuverability and battlefield control.

Tax buffed:

Romulan hyper flux + FOMM + BO3/2 on a DEM3 Marion doff setup... Does horrible things to other ships. So long as you can lob everything off in 8 seconds!

Emojoe's little blurb about cycling beam overloads is actually very valid on fed cruisers.

Can a cruiser do spike damage?

ABSOLUTELY

Can a cruiser do enough spike damage to replace an escort?

NO


Due to the nature of DHCs ability to do both pressure AND spike dps without having to include additional abilities the escort with its maneuverability is still king.

kdf cruisers can be escort replacers, they wont hit quite as hard but they also wont need as much support. 3 DHCs and THY1 has got me plenty of quick kills. heavily powered up glider and DEM3 can be quite the drawn out fight equalizer though.

cruisers like the dkora and excelsior that can make use of DBBs and the DEM doff that have strong tac skills can spike that way too.


the all beam array builds or all singles and turret builds are still useless though

And the Regent, the Galor and the Ody in saucer separation mode.

cruisers don't have a well compensated tanking capability to balance with the lack of dps
and don't do it, dem might be nerfed

but try this in the fleet assault
tt1, bo2, apo1 or bo3
hy1 with omega torpedo
epts1 rsp dem2 dem3
et1 auxtosif1
he1 tss2

it might work with the thunderchild console to rip some shields, then, the omega torpedo and dem should do the rest, but i dont see a good spike build for a cruiser
OOh. DEM3 + thunderchild console
