# 1 Need some help with my Bortas
04-09-2014, 12:50 PM
Hi does anyone know of a low cost build for a Bortas Class Ship?
I Support a Future Playable Cardassian Faction!
I also support some further tweaks to the Galaxy X relating to the removal of the ensign universal slot and replacement with a Commander Tactical or Commander Universal BOFF Slot. For a Dreadnought it should have this and Ensign BOFF Slots on a Dreadnought is not right!

Play "Sphere of Influence" over and over until you get the Obelisk Core, the 360 AP beam, and a a full set of [acc]x2 AP beam arrays to fill every weapon spot, except one for the Kinetic Cutting Beam from Omega Reputation if you have it. "A Step Between Stars" 3x for the Solanae set. AP consoles Mk XI blue/XII green are decently cheap last I checked, so stock up on those, or just hope for [+AP] drops from the Dyson Rep if you're going through it. One of the recently added or redone low-level episodes gives out Mk XI green Neutronium, grab a pair.

The Universal console from the last lockbox that fires missles is fairly nice against slow/non-moving targets and wasn't very expensive last I checked, would be worthwhile if it's not competing with a nicer Universal from Rep or Lobi store. The current lockbox's 'play dead' console is pretty fun too and pretty cheap, I'd pick one up.

True warriors arm this ship with Disruptor DHC's and Turrets.

And true warriors spend more time turning the beast to line up the next target than it takes to blow it up. that leads to low DPS. It can be hilarious how quickly things blow up with DHC/ turrets on a bort, but beam arrays are simply better for that beast, especially in PvE content like STFs.

Do yourself a favor, use beam arrays instead. Anything with a turn rate listed as 8 or lower, will waste DPS due to a lack of maneuverability, even with multiple RCS consoles slotted.

Cannot agree with that in the slightest.
Its all about knowing the ship and how to make her do what you want.

This is my cheap Bortas build, it does have a couple of rep items but you could always replace them but I would recommend working towards getting them...

The Doffs probably cost the most but again they are worth getting.

Edit: Leech console is only 1000 zen from the c-store and worth every penny.

Since you said cheap, I'll assume you might not have all the DOFFs for certain things.
Do you have any of the following DOFFs, how many and what color?

Technicians that reduce cooldowns on use of aux to battery?
Conn officers that reduce tactical team cooldown?
Damage control engineers that reduce cooldown on emergency power abilities?
Systems Engineers that reduce DEM power useage?
Energy Weapon officers that reduce beam weapon recharge?
