Desperate. If you're running a healing cruiser at less than 100 weapon power, no point in firing more than 6 beams or so. Might as well add a Quantum.

Or, now, a Hargh'Peng, of course.

If you aren't going to use high yield run a tric. It's not like you will be shooting a good torp off more than 1 time out of every 30 seconds or so anyway.

*pretending the stupid peng with it's 20k proc right through your full shields didn't exist here*

... sometimes, I do.

(hides in shame)

No, but really. On a healer DSSV or Intrepid build, I'll use a bunch of torps and have TacTeam and APD in my Tac slots.

Trics aren't worth it though, IMO, unless you're firing them at very close range or have an omgwtfalphapwn strategy like Mini. With all of the FAW, Gravity Wells, Shockwaves, Photonics, Fighters, etc etc around, the Trics don't stand a chance if you launch them from >5KM.. if they launch at all. Un-HYT'd torps fare much better :p

The trick to dealing with Pengs in general is use alot of selfish resistance buffs. AUX to damp, brace for impact, APO(if you have it), Polarize Hull etc.
Indeed, thats what I use, but still those HPs hurt stacked. Especially in Escorts and SSs.

Thats why HPs are so welcome, you can have TT and FAW2 without needing HY. And its why the other torpedo types are even more useless. Be interesting what Cryptic does to make torpedoes viable again without being OP.

Be great if Tricobalts still wasn't prone with all those launch bugs, and everything causing it to poof right after its actually fired.

So, what's the consensus here? May I use Pengs in my heal cruiser or would this be frowned upon?

I'm using them in mine. I've found that you generally don't generate hate towards you until you're using 3+. Or are intentionally spamming them and putting a few of them in the same arc.

the problem i have with pengs is that they stack. i dont even bother with arenas anymore, & wont untill something is done about the peng stacking.
Sure, if you hit me with 1, i wont hate you. the damage is negligible, But if you hit me with 1 & everyone else on your team is hitting me with 2 or 3 more every 20 seconds, i'm gonna just decide i hate all of you & leave the match. I run A tank, & i know how to mitigate kinetic damage, but when i've got 6 pengs stacked on me for 5 minutes & i'm pulsing like a giant pink disco ball there is nothing i can do, i will be killed . autofire +stacked Peng > tanking. Make the peng proc like the Plasma proc, where no more than 2 can stack, & i wont hate you for using pengs. Until then, if you peng me, I'm going to think of you as a jerk. If you SS3 & peng me, i'm adding you to my ignore list.
