# 1 Science leveling build?
06-09-2011, 12:35 PM
Does anyone have good suggestions for putting together a good leveling build for a Science officer, probably on a Sci ship? I'm less concerned I guess with healing right off the bat (and don't mind respeccing later) so much as just survival and doing enough DPS/debuffs to progress through the ranks with decent speed. If you have any console suggestions or specific items, EC isn't much of an issue.

So any suggestions on how to put together my ship, what skills to invest in, what boff skills to pick up and why, all that information would be gold.

Thanks!

first off, what level are you, and what do you plan on doing? PvP will require a lot more work than PvE.*

also, what difficulty? Elite will require more specifics, while in advanced or normal mode you can get by without focusing on specific skills.

*PvE means Player-vs-Environment. PvP means Player-vs-Player

If you're looking to level, the best choice is an Escort. You literally rip through entire mobs in 2 seconds flat with 3x Dual Heavies and Scatter Volley.

If you want to do it in a Sci, you'll want to look into Scramble Sensors. Nothing like making your enemy work for you.

Lt Com on a sci ship broadsiding with 4 phaser beam arrays + phaser tac console with fire at will on my tac BOff maxed and scramble sensors. Eat through groups of small things very quickly. Single, heavier opponents are slower.

Ground:
Reman Sci BOff DPS
Betazoid Sci BOff Heals
Klingon Tac BOff DPS
Borg Eng Off DPS/utility

Mostly AoE DPS weapons and abilities where possible.

I duo with an engi/cruiser mate who also broadsides/fire at will.
