# 1 The One True BoP Guide?

So, the bird can do anything, and be anything, that you want. What are your personal favorite builds for it, or the ones you use most often?

EDIT: Changed the question to something more appropriate.

Given its U-slot capability any BOff loadout is possible, even wierd ones.

lol, you should see my B'rel layout


OP: Basicly, what ever you can dream up as a tactic, you can have a go with. It can heal, support or fight, there is no "standard" config for it.

Though, on the other hand, I have seen quite a few dual heavy cannon and torps with turrets at the back set ups, but that is for those looking for high DPS. I have also seen and used some odd ball configs that are made just for fun or to cause chaos.

It will all come down to your own reation times and play style as to how you will end up using one, all I can suggest is just to relax and have fun trying different things, go nuts and try every BOFF skill and equipment load out you can think of

So, clearly the consensus is that the bird can do anything, and be anything, that you want. I probably started out asking the wrong question. Maybe instead: What are your personal favorite builds for it, or the ones you use most often?

Interesting how much overlap there is between Roach and Gnom's builds. When you can slot any ability, I think it turns out that there is a fairly small set of stuff everyone considers the must have or most useful. I also like how Roach has four BOFFs and three very different setups just by shuffling them around; straight DD, tanking, and sci ganker.

I tend to fall into patterns of usage with my BOffs as I experiment with builds.
I have made different builds without TAC in the Com slot but being a TAC captain I felt it was short changing my self and the damage output playstyle as it shortchanged my TAc BOffs.

COM- ET1 EPTS2 A2Dam2 A2Sif3
LTC- THY1 CRF1 BO3
LT - ST1 PH2
LT- TT1 ApB1

COM- PH1 ST2 TSS3 TBR3
LTC- THY1 CRF1 BO3
LT- ET EPTS2
LT- TT1 ApB1

COM- ET1 EPTS2 A2Damp2 A2Sif3
LTC- PH1 ST2 TSS3
LT- THY1 CRF1
LT- TT1 ApB1

COM- THY1 CRF1 BO3 ApO3
LTC- TT1 ApB1 CRF2
LT- EPTS1 EPTS2
LT- PH1 ST2

The beauty of the BoP is the ability to move BOffs around and find new builds. The handicap is the U-slots ranks and the loss of higher abilities as one does this. (which is a fair handicap imo).
It allows one to build towards a purpose (damage/survial/healing) without being OP in all areas.
The BoP is the "Jack-of-all-trades- Master of none" vessel of the KDF in this aspect as they do not throwout that which works and make newer vessels with the speed of the federation.
