Recently, I tried getting into PvP on my Klingon character and I do nothing but die every single time.

I have a LC 7 Engineer in a Raptor with Dual Phaser Bank, Plasma Dual Heavy Cannons, and Quantum torpedo fore, and a plasma beam array aft.

I run with

Torpedo Spread 1,Beam array Fire at Will 1, and Cannon Rapid Spread 1

Engineering Team 1, Hazard Emitters 1

Weapons 75
Shield 75
Engines & Aux 25


Whenever I attack anything, I barely do any damage but take a ridiculous amount of it, am I doing something wrong?

First thing I would do is run one energy type weapon.....having both phaser and plasma doesn't help you to more damage. Secondly, I would probably drop the ET 1 and pick up Emergency Power to Shields 1 giving you both a hull and shield heal/resist. Last off, weapons to max when you attack, then when you start to take focus fire either pop an aux battery or switch full power to aux and hit your heals. Then when your no longer in danger (i.e. you ran or they stopped firing at you as much) switch back to weapons power.

Hope that helps!

Not a problem!

Oh and speed is key too. Having more power towards your engines rather then your shields or aux while at full weapons power will make you harder to hit therefore you will take less damage.

Indeed. A raptor is an escort. 100 25 50 25 is the power setting of choice. Speed = Life Speed = Death.

Also at a lower level... and possible even later consider going only two dmg types to max your skill usage.

I would drop the beams. Go with one torp and Dual cannosn and Turrets. Then use rapid fire and HY patters... attack patterns if you have the room. Trying to do a little of everything is holding you back.

Also try to get within 4km or less before decloaking as cannons have a severe reduction in damage for every 1km beyond that range.

As for powers try to get a Torpedo high yield for when you drop the shield rather than a Torpedo Spread. It will give you a bigger punch against one target.

And as everyone else has said, speed is life. Use movement batteries + Evasive Maneuvers for when it is time to get away from being focused fired.
