# 1 Energy settings for Escort?
02-04-2010, 02:04 PM
Hi, I need some help there. I am trying to figure out some power settings for different times.
Normally, I run at 110 weapons, 53 shields, 32 engine, 32 aux. If I have tank i switch from shields to aux. Is that right? Any ideas welcomed. Thx

I like running full power to weapons, so run with a simular setting to your default. (100/50/25/25 before mods)
Other people who like playing hit and run have a high engine setting, something like 90/25/50/35
Still others liek the ability to stick to the aft of their targets and run high Aux (prehaps 80/35/35/50)

It mostly comes down to how you like to play your escorts
Me personaly, i pick a target, fly in with full power to weapons, guns blazing. If i take em out i divert power to engines and fly out of range of any extra hostiles, if i dont kill them on the approach i will stop engines and maintain fire or try to swign around onto their tail whislt maintaining high weapons power, but increasing power to shields (if there not dead on the approach i swap to 80/70/25/25)

I fly an escort and I find a good combination for me is equpping shields with high max ratings (which sacrifices recharge rates) and then fly with energy set to defense. Escort weapons and speed are pretty good to begin with so I find this balances things out nicely.
