# 1 Question

I am experimenting with a new build for STFs.

Phaser Dual Heavies XII Borg x 3
Phaser Quad Cannon x1
Phaser Turrets x3 in back
Phaser Console x4 in Tac Spot
Omega Set

Is the Quad Cannon without the Borg Proc worth moving out the Torpedo and taking the hit with the overlapping BO cool downs?

That's really up for you to decide and to test yourself.

I run an all cannon build (all DHCs and turrets), and my skill points have been distributed with that in mind.

From my initial testings of 3 volleys with 4x DHCs vs 3 volleys with 3x DHCs + 1 quant torp, unbuffed, I was doing about 7k more damage than with the latter.

But, again, it depends on how your skill points are distributed and how you play your game.

I will say that I've convinced one of my fellow fleet mates who is sub-Rear Admiral, and he thinks the all cannon build has helped him come out on top in PvP and fleet actions multiple times.

All I can say is, test it yourself and see if you notice a difference. Don't be afraid to experiment. If you want raw data numbers, turn on your combat logging and download a 3rd party program that will help sort out those numbers.
