Indeed. I'd also like to ask a question, myself. Is it worthwhile to go 3 DHC and a torp, with 2 Turrets and the borg cutting beam in the back? If so, what torp?

Sethketa, for the torpedo I would recommend either quantum (higher base damage) or "to flavor" (Harg'peng, RR transphasic, romulan plasma, tricobalt, etc). I would avoid "regular" torpedoes, like photon or plasma, they just don't seem to have the punch that quantums or special types have.

I personally use quantums.



And yes, 3 DHC+torp with 2 turrets and a KCB seems to be a popular choice, and for good reason. I've also seen people replace the torp with a DBB, or one of the DHC with a DBB, I feel its really personal choice. note that with only DHC's (no torp or DBB) you run the risk of running out of tac BOFF abilities, depending on the ship, unless you want to fill out the Lt Cmdr and Cmdr slots with attack patterns (which is also viable!)

I would think that running a DBB would be more of a liability due to the immense power drain from Beam Overload, and how it'd kill your DPS more than increase it. Unless you pop a Weapon Battery as often as possible, which also seems like too much micro-management for my tastes.

And I'm currently running a TER with TT1, CRF1, CRF2, ATO3 and TT1, TS2, ATO1 and TS1. I've considered investing in some purple Conn officers, so that I can run two copies of TS1 and replace TS2 with ATB, but since I cycle everything, I'm not sure how APB 1 would affect my two copies of ATO.

EDIT: Also, it isn't quite clear. I've heard that the Borg Regen shield is really bad, and yet on this thread I've read that regen>shield HP. And yet, in other sections I've heard you'll want those science consoles that give shield HP, rather than shield regen.. So, what exactly is a better idea to get?

NO, the MACO Adapted is best, I am on finished yet, and my fleet rank is not ret to the point I can go shopping, but, in my 2 years of Esperance having 2 skills
like say tactical team,
once one cools down you can activate it while the other is still cooling, I just used this to tank, my idea works good agents most if not all non boss ships

no matter what people say the borg set will never tack much fire power

APB will fit into the gaps in the APO, so you get the same amount of APO, just with APB in between. As for regen vs cap, it's a bit tricky. Most of the time heals will do far more than regen, so cap is better, but with the Borg shield and high shield power it's possible to get enough regen to be more potent than the heals, which could well be more valuable than a higher cap. Although that will depend on the pattern of incoming fire, if it's too bursty cap will still be better.

I currently run the Advanced Escort vessel.

Font: 3x Phaser Dual Cannons and 1x Quantum Torpedo Launcher,
Aft: 3x Phaser Turrets,

All weapons have suffixes [Crit] [Dmg]

And Phaser Relay consoles and Quantium torp console.


But how will the Jem`Hadar Space set cope in PvE against all enemies, just for occasional play. I don`t wanna spend a fortune at fleet stores.

It's one of the better freebie sets you can get, and for a Polaron build, it would be pretty decent. If you have the Lobi to spare to upgrade it to Mk XII, that would be ideal, but for casual play, I'm not real sure. Might be decent, but you'd probably need the boost if gives Polaron weapons.

The is the ONLY message board I've ever been to that so vigorously fights grave digging, even at the expense of starting repeated redundant threads. It's very weird.

Patches bring back bugs. Would be more hectic if old threads were rehashed in this game.
Chive on and prosper, eh?

I know, its very unusual!

However when I posted on a Compression Rifle thread, I "earned" (the best way to put it) a spamming interaction. Good on me for that one, but then again, why no this post?
