# 1 burst damage
09-06-2010, 05:06 AM
I'm about to hit tier 3 with my klingon.

If I go bird of prey, can I assume that the best burst damage would be:

1 Cannon, 1 Beam, 1 Torpedo

Cannon Rapid Fire, Beam Overload, Tactical Team

Uncloak, hit all 3 BO powers and go to work, then recloak? Or am I missing something? Thank you in advance. Should I forgo a torp in this setup?

You got it- they are all on separate timers (cannons, beams torp) so you can overload all three BEFORE you uncloak. Use Torp overloads too.Then uncloak and hit the spacebar- boom, instant vaporization.

THank you - What if I have 2 cannons and just use rapid fire? Isn't as good as using beams too? and do you use tactical team?

General:

1 torp
1 dual beam bank
rest DHC/DC

aft
all turret or all turret+1 torp

preload BO, THY, hit RF when you start going. also hit things like attack patterns ETC
BO and HYT should be ready for the next fire cycle if timed well and RF number 2 should be ready to.

good stream of damamge.

Do you have to have 3 separate officers do this or can one officer do more than 1 skill?

1 officer can fire off all of their skills at the same time, if they're not on the same cooldown.

For example: A Commander Tac can fire off Cannon: Rapid Fire III, Beam Overload: III, Torpedo: High Yield II, and Tactical Team I at the same time.

Great thanks!

So, at tier 3 I should have

Lt Cmdr BO: Cannon Rapid Fire II, Beam overload II, and say, tactical team I
Lt. BO: Some ensign ability, and High Yield Torpedo

Only use tactical team for the debuff clearing ability it has. Which means I'd not equip it until much later.

It does have a very short (5 seconds) DPS boost (+18 to beams and +18 projectiles [or is it cannons?]), but still, not worth it IMO.
