# 1 Endgame escort build
08-02-2011, 12:00 PM
This is a quick inquire. I have made it to endage running a full plasma build on an escort. I do not know if this is the best build or not. All my plasma skills are maxed out and I run 4 rare Mk XI plasma infusers (haven't found any purples yet.) As a general concensus, what is the best endgame build for a Defiant Retrofit?

The general thinking is that Phasers or Antiprotons are best, and to a lesser extent, disruptors, all because of their procs. Tetryon & plasma do have their supporters, though. Nobody really likes polaron.

Basically, if you have a lot of skill points & energy credits to throw around, go Antiproton. If you need to save the points & currency, go phasers. AP gets nice crits & phasers can shut down systems at a decent pace.

With all things considered, I'd say the list is like the following;
1. Disruptor (hull resist debuff)
2. Phaser (subsystem offline)
3. Antiproton (extra critical damage)
4. Tetryon (shield damage)
5. Plasma (damage over time)
6. Poloran (power drain)

But really, It depends upon your build, and what you prefer.
Each weapon basically does the same damage. How each looks
and proc type is what the difference is. The other difference is in
how many points it takes to skill up in them.

Disruptors and Phasers cost the lest amount of skill points and then you can buff up your healing skills and electronic warfare

Just My Humble Opinion

I <3 Polaron... But only because of the cheap (and only, as far as I know, beyond uber rare Ker'rat drops) [CrtH] x2 modifiers. The proc is trash though, unless you're going for an all-out full drain Tyken's 3 Sci build.
