Hello!!

I have a character who is going to be getting an Odyssey Tactical Cruiser as soon as she hits 50. She's also going to have an Advanced Escort for the RA Levels, which she'll keep for if her missions require a bit more firepower. Both ships will be running Beams primarily, with one Quantum Torpedo Launcher forward and aft each.

And I was wondering: Which type of Beams would work better for her: Phaser or Antiproton?

Either way, I look forward to everyone's replies.

So far it seems to be personal opinion mainly. my fleet told me to grab the plasma-disruptors or the polaron till i get the antiproton from stf. You can get those from either the end mission from the klingon episodes or the polaron you get from 2800 series which you can grab a full set of jem hadar and it will hold you till you get mk 12. But thats my advise. Each beam has a different effect and just deside which effect you want to do. weither your for your self or other.

By all means keep doin' what you're doin' if you like it, but I would recommend ditching the beams on the escort. There's not much point to its mobility and high weapons power if you're just going to dump beams on it (though I am aware there are "beamscort" builds).

Depends on your skill build, if you have next to 0 accuracy, then the Phasers are better because the AP basically wont 'proc', High accuracy so an affix [Acc]x3 on a 9/9 skill build and the APs, start hammering the Phasers for DPS.

If you want the best DPS you can get, you get AP [Acc]x3 as accuracy adds to critical hit chance and critical severity

Well, to be honest, The Escort will have Three Dual Beam Banks in the forward arc.

On any Character with an Escort, I tend to do things one of two ways: Either DHCs up front and Turrets in back (with one Torpedo Launcher forward and one Torpedo Launcher in back) or DBBs up front and Beam Arrays in back (again, with one Torpedo Launcher forward and one Torpedo Launcher in back). How I decide which way to go is whether the ship's aesthetics would work better with Beams or Cannons.

Out of curiosity, what is the Anti-Proton Proc effect?

AP Proc is [CrtD] +20% crit dmg. Not a proc, just works only on crits.

Ah. So, if I give this character Anti-Protons, she'll basically do more Critical Hit Damage?

Sounds fun. I think I will do that for her Advanced Escort.

Odyssey Tac will probably be Phasers, though.

Yeah if you got DHC [CrtD]x3 with AP,

you will get
20% from being AP
10% from being DHC
60% from affixes.

90% total increase

Did you mean 3x DHC [CrtD] or DHC [CrtD]x3? Because, there's a difference.
