# 1 Get d'kora or not?
03-12-2013, 01:52 PM
Evening

Im starting to look at the possibility of buying a d'kora, but unsure as to whether it's worth it.

Im currently running a sci oddy, with 7beam and the cutting beam. I enjoy playing a damage soaker, and while the sci oddy is excellent at it, im wondering if the d'kora can do the same, while pushing out more damage.

Ill want to run the d'kora with dhc's and turrets.

Is it realistic for me to expect the d'kora to do much better damage the the oddy, while still maintaining the tanking ability?

ill prolly run:

ens tac: cannon scatter volley
lt.cmd tac: tt/scatter volley/apb
cmd eng: epts1/epts2/eptw3/aux to sif3
lt eng: eptw1/rsp1
sci: he/tss


Is it worth spending the EC, or should i just look at maximising my oddy?

Is it realistic looking for a ship that damages similar to an escort and tanks like an oddy?

Thanks

You cant put cannon scatter volly in the ens tac slot.

The d'kora is worth getting. It can tank and it can also do damage. That ship has 2 modes. It is also everything that the galaxy-x is not and in PvE the cannon turret build makes it one of the most damaging cruisers in the game. I would not recommend it in PvP but would advise on a Beam boat.

Its not overly crazy, the passive mode boosts are nice, but its a console. The Emp burst is pretty devastating to large targets.

its a good ship and has exchange mail and dabo on the bridge its very tanky.

tho id have to admit out of the d'kora and galor id rather have the galor its a fine fast cruiser with great dmg and a univseral boff station so u can u choose to be alittle more tanky or dps.

If you want a cruiser that is amazing at offense, go for the Galor. They unlock Spiral Wave Disruptor Beam Arrays, which have x2 [acc] and x2 [dmg] modifiers, as well as disruptor AND phaser procs. They're arguably the only beam array weapons actually worth using on any ship.

D'kora is far better in reality than it looks in the box. That's because Battle Mode, unlike unique consoles, is not something that you get to use every few minutes... it's on all the time. When battle mode is active (i.e. always), D'kora has a total of +30 points to energy and projectile damage skills, +15 power to weapons, +10 power to engines, +5 power to shields, and a free RCS console.

It's not going to tank as well as an Odyssey since it lacks the Aux power bonus and ability to run 2 copies of EPTS3, but it's going to dish out a lot more damage.

Thanks for the awesome replies so far!

I did concider the galor, but was drawn to the dkora because of the dhc's. but i think even with the dkora in battle mode they will be difficult to bring to bear.

I think i should take a look at the galor again, although the battle mode dmg boost is awesome. I definetely want a non-federation looking ship.
