# 1 Weapon Console for Cruisers
06-27-2012, 03:46 PM
My Galaxy lacks the DPS I need as a Tac Captain because I only have two weapon console slots. On my Galaxy X, I have three weapon console slots. I use two for boosting Phaser power and one to boost the cannons' power. My Galaxy R don't have cannons and only two weapon consoles. I either use one slot to boost phasers and the other to boost torpedos but I found this inadequate because my torpedos are not weakening other players' shields. My Phaser beams weren't strong enough to take down their shileds. I am now using both slots to boost phasers but now my torpedos are not strong enough to finish the job when the players shields are down. Since Crusers can't have the DPS of cannons, atleast give us the chance to use the Torpedos in place of cannon power. I am asking that you give a third weapons slot that can be used to boost torpedos.

what slot do you use the Borg console in? That can be a considerable DPS increase.

Isn't the G-R more of a tank than a DPS cruiser?

I wonder more what your power settings are at, and what BOFF abilities you're using. One console shouldn't make a game-changing difference.

In my self appointed role as champion and defender of the Galaxy R i must say it copes very nicely as it is

And I once again ask that it be left ENTIRELY alone
no new slots no new powers no go faster stripes

not even a pine air freshener

You could run both Tac consoles to boost phasers, then if you still want some torp dps, maybe look at the Breen set, 2-pieces give you a 25% or 30% boost to transphasics, same as a console. But you might loose out in other areas with this setup....just know it has worked ok for me on a few builds.

I am a Tac captain so I can't be 100% Tank like an Eng captain. I have seen escorts act like tanks when used by Eng captains so why can't I do a little DPS with a cruiser as a Tac captain?

That's what APA and you're other tac captain abilities are for.
