im looking to outfit my new JH Dreadnought.

i cant get the attack fighters cause i am not rich enough to buy and unpack a 300m ship i will never fly..


im looking at getting regular dil store adv fighters..

ive used in the past adv slavers.. they work good.. but i know they are on the low end of the dps range.. maybe even the lowest..

what about the adv to'duj fighters?
or the adv s'kul fighters? assuming i can put them on the JH ship..

or the adv JH fighters.. they are under reward packs instead of ship items... are they the best?


any ideas would be great..

Ultra elite scorpion fighters are the next best,after the attack ships.

In terms of general firepower, your fighter choices go like this:


Jem'hadar fighters:
#

Adv. Jem'hadar fighters:
#

Slavers:
###

Adv. Slavers:
###

Adv. To'duj fighters:
####

To'duj fighters:
#####

Elite scorpions:
##########


So, just stick with your standard To'duj (NOT advanced, which are a downgrade) until you can get the best.

Keep in mind, the Jem Attack Ship isn't necessarily the best firepower in the game for Hangar Bay pets... It is true that they do pack a hell of a punch but they're only burst their DPS as oppose to keeping it sustained. They can get up to 20,000 damage per Hangar in a matter of 2 seconds but then drop down to 2k-3k dps.

The Ultra Rare Scorpions on the other hand sit around 4.5K dps per hangar and rarely fluctuate. Keep in mind that the cooldown for replenishing your lost hangar pets is A LOT quicker with Scorpions then they would be with the Attack Ships (And with Flight Deck DOFF's, you can be popping out entire wings of Scorpions in a matter of a few seconds.)

I'd say the Attack Ships are much more suited for PVP where as the Scorpions are the "Everyman's Carrier Pet" It's just well suited for any kind of role.

It's because the advance ones use a quantum torpedo and the regular ones use photon. Photon torpedoes have a higher dps through a faster fire rate while quantum hits harder per shot. So ironically it's a downgrade in overall dps to go with advanced fighters. The energy attacks from hanger pets tends to be very weak, 70-90% of your fighters damage comes from its torpedo alone.

For a JH Dreadnought your best bet is Scorpions if you want high damage output, and like someone mentioned the elite Scorpions from T5 Romulan rep are as good as it gets and pretty much everything else aside from the advanced Fer'Jai and the advanced BoP pale in comparison.

We have to wait until some fleet gets the ultra rare carrier pets to see if Elite Scorpions are actually the best.
