First, it's a dps up, and second you only have one team (your science team) which has a cd of 45 seconds, and a team gcd of 20, meaning that even in pvp you could use it 20 seconds after sci team and it wouldn't hinder your survivability at all.

2-Wasted points in (currently) tactical squad leader and eng leader. Assuming you go for tactical team, that one is fine, distribute the rest of the points to your other tier 1 abilities (max out operations, for example). It's only 1 more than you have now, but it's 1 more to everything, and when you start doing raidisodes you don't get your boffs anyways, which means it's only useful for solo dailies, which are easy enough to alt tab to porn while your weak boffs kill things and keep you alive.

3-wasted points in physiology and nanite imo. Ground is pretty cakewalk atm (even the raidisode) so spending any points in there seems like a waste to me, especially RA points. bump up your ship, or put points in aux performance.

4- 9 points in spacial anomaly with only tr2 seems like a waste. Either go VM1, TR3 with spacial, or pick something else I'd say. Maybe it's overkill, I haven't researched it enough, but only having rank 2 of an ability which costs you the most skill points seems counter intuitive.

5- Don't need points in deflector dish. None of your abilities use that, so you could spent those points else where. Keep the scanners, as other things like yous sensor scan use those. You could use all the points you get from that to increase your engine performance. Not saying it's a great choice (though I myself use it), but it's still more productive than where they are now.

Keep in mind there's supposed to be 3 new things added to the trees: something about critting more, getting crit less, and manoevering or something. Haven't been paying enough attention, but something to keep in mind.

Hope this helps, and hope I didn't make myself look like an idiot

Here is my attempt at a healing/Debuffing build


The plan is 4 sci boffs, swapping depending on what I'm doing


Engi Team I
Extend Shields I


Hazard Emitters I
Science Team II
Hazard Emitters III
Science Team III

Polarize Hull I
Transfer Shield Strength II
Feedbackpulse III

Jam Sensors I
Science team II
Viral Matrix I
Tykens Rift III

Tachyon Beam I
Energy Siphon I
Charged Particle Burst II

I'll Probably run 75/25/25/85.

What do you guys think?
Also note: the Points in Escort Captain is a placeholder for the new skill That improves evasion and turn rate: Combat Tactics I think.

Points in ground is to be a good Single Target healer, and decent Aoe Healer(long CD anyway) for the new STFs.

If my math is right, in healing mode I would have

+185 to Hazard emitters
+177 to Science Team.
+177 Transfer Shield Strength

I plan on having
2 Halons+30
2 Inductions+30
2 1.5 Eps consoles(post nerf)
1 Electro ceramic plating (30% resist plasma/tet)
2 Phaser relay+30
Graviton Deflector Dish (+28 emitters)[Def]x2 (+20 deflectors)

I'll figure out Debuffing EQ later.

Sciteam 3 takes the third slot, not fourth. +%to resist is a waste imo. I'll assume that's an eng slot and that you're riding a DSRV or whatever, at which point I'd suggest +6 to aux or weapons or something.

Can't look at java at work, so cannot help you further.

Also looking for some inputs if anyone has the time

I'm flying Recon SV because I like being in the fight as well being able to assist my team.

Default load out atm is 2 Tetryon beambanks 1 quant torp fore
2 beam arrays and 1 quant torp after.

Would it be better to just run phasers since they are cheaper to skill ?

Hey Luciora, you have to many points in skills outside your class. This build may work better for you -

Try running 1 Dual bank 2 Torps forward and 3 turrets aft (good idea to use cannon rapid fire aswell)

I follow your thinking but that focuses more on Tactical than Science with the combat manauvers / attack vector / battle strategy. What BO skills would compliment your suggestions ?

Also what consoles would be able to assist with the drain that the Turrets add ?

combat manauvers / attack vector / battle strategy can provide a nice boost to dps and manoeuvrability, i use these 3 skills with my build and quite often in pvp i come in first with at least 300k more damage then the Escorts.

Skills: Tactical - High Yeild 1, Rapid fire 1, beam overload 1
Engineer - E_Power to Shields 2 + Engineering team 1
Science - Hazard Emitters 1+2, Science Team 1+2
- Feedback pulse 2, Tykens Rift 2, Viral Matrix 3

Consoles: Tactical - 2 tetyon generators, 1 Quantum
Engineer - 1 Eps flow regulator, 1 Weapon power upgrade
Science - 2 Deflector field upgrades , 2 Sensor probes (you could swap the sensor probes for something else they don't provide a great boost)

don't worry about power drain it shouldn't be bad with this build.
Hazard emitters and science team will heal better than Engineering teams so make use of them for yourself or alleys, hope this helps.

Good evening Gents.

Im currently up to page 37 on this wonderful thread and still reading. I have learned a lot and wanted to thank you all for the great information found in this thread.

This is my current build:

I want to be able to solo PvE content but be a good space healer/support. My current "fleet" is a joke and I dont think I will be doing any "raiding" for a while, so there will be no ground healing in my near future. Living in Germany has proven to be though on finding an English speaking fleet, that's not even mentioning the six hour difference.

My current power settings are 75W-25-25-50 or 25W-50-25-75 when I'm in trouble.
Unlike WoW, I have not been able to wrap my head around the stats and mechanics of healing / dps on this game, so if I have totally messed this guy up, let me know. I would also love some weapon / consoles suggestions.

Thanks in advance for the help.
