# 1 Endgame build
02-20-2014, 07:42 AM
I'm thinking of starting a new toon to fill up my 11th slot. I was going to go for an Orion Sci that flies BoPs. What recommendations would you have for the endgame build? Equipment sets, weapon loadout, BOff powers, etc? I don't plan on joining a fleet, and I don't do PvP. I will have access to the Enhanced Induction Coils console and Bio-neural Warhead, courtesy of the recent freebies, so I'd like to try and include them in my build if possible. I also intend to have a separate loadout for STFs.

Don't use a BoP for PVE... just don't. That might be part of the reason people aren't responding to this thread... It works in pvp cause people go crazy with vape builds and stealth torpedo and mine bombers. But it doesn't have the staying power to be effective and not die. In pve sustained damage in king, but its difficult for a BoP for do sustained damage when one lucky (not even high yield) borg cube torpedo can make you implode.

except there have been people who have tanked borg cube's with B'Rels and Hegh'tas perfectly fine

As for the actual build, This is a BoP (and cheap Gear) variation of what i use on my Mirror Deep space science vessel. Not sure how good it is, but it has worked for me in regular PVE, including able to nearly solo one of the Voth tower battles, only having help near the end of which where i likely could have died. (though i am not sure if that is an accomplishment or not)

Thanks for that. It looks like with the right timing that could be a one-volley-kill build for anything short of a battleship. Also plenty of defensive buffs for the inevitable occasions when you do face a battleship (although I was under the impression only tac consoles stacked). I acknowledge that a BoP is comparatively fragile, and with the noted objection against a BoP's staying power, would a raptor be better?

Made a note of the skilllplanner URL, should help to iron out some kinks on my other toons, thanks.
