# 1 Eng or Tact?

Since it appears that it doesnt matter what your class is in space, just your ship... which class do you like better, and why?

Eng gets turrets and some buffs on ground it seems, Tact gets what..? Grenades?

I would love to play a sniper... in Tabula Rasa (rip) that was my favourite, sitting on a hill and picking off the mobs several yards away hehe.

Classes do matter in space since you get a space ability every x8 level, but aye, not as much as it effects ground.

I personaly liek my Tactical officer, sure i dont get no fancy turrets, shield generators and viral nanobot thingymajigs to hide behind. But i get to put points into rifle, and i get to use my big gun to blow your head off with extra damage


as far as i can tell, tactical are the only ones whos skills improve basic weapon damage.

I made my joined Trill a tact... I might just go ahead and try it out. Maybe gun points will make sniper rifles more fun.

I'm really enjoying my Eng. Makes for a bit more tanky space play and nothing is more fun then dropping down your own shield bobble and phaser turret in ground missions.

Loving my eng. right now. Nothing puts a smile on my face like seeing a bunch of mines exploding as a klink tries to rush me.

I went through the tutorial as as tact... tossing grenades was... oddly enjoyable. lol

Im considering making an "alien" orion to do Engi as well, but Im afraid that if I do, and I get too far into the character, Cryptic will take that moment to release actual Orions for feds in the CS. >.<

Try melee. Once you start doing combos its hard to give up.
