# 1 My ship build. Please advise.
09-26-2012, 04:28 AM
I recently made level 50 and have an assault cruiser. I am a tactical captain and have tried a shiop build using various guides. I mostly do episode missions and PVE etc.

To show my build I will use pics so hope this comes across ok and makes sense.

Weapons are anti proton very rare XI beam arrays and 2 XI very rare photon torps.
Shield, Engine and deflector are the assimilated borg set.
Amoung my devices I have a subspace field modulator.
Engineering consoles are: XI rare monotanium alloy, XI rare Neutronium alloy x2 and an XI rare field emitter.
Science consoles are: XI rare shield emitter amplifier and XI rare field generator.
Tactical slots are XI common Anti proton mag regulator x3.

My stations are powers as pictured above are:
Lt Tactical: Tac team 1 and torp spread 2.
Ens Tactical: Fire at will 1.
Cmdr Enginnering: Epts 1 and 2, Aux power to structual integratory 3 and Aceton beam 2.
Lt Cmdr Eng: Eng team 1 and 2 plus reverse shield polarity 2.
Lt Sci: Polarize Hull 1 and Science team 2.

My Doffs are above.

Skills: http://www.stoacademy.com/tools/skil...=Phil3822_2160

I mostly use my ship as a healer for me and team. Row 7 of my powers uses the space bar keybind as per Hilberts guide.

This is my first proper build and my first one publishing on here so go easy on me

Well, it depends on what you want to do now. My main ENG also uses a Sovy for STFs right now and tanks everything except 60k critical hits.

I use 5 x Mk XI/XII Borg phaser arrays 1 MKXII Borg DBB, one Borg Mk XII quantum torp fore and one borg XII tricobalt aft.

Electroceramic armour due to plasma resistance (XI blue) and one EPS
Field Generator and Borg console
Phaser consoles

MKXII MACO shield, rest borg

aux battery, shield battery, engine battery, subspace field modulator

BOFFs are:

ENG CMDR: EPtW 1, RSP 1, EPtS 3, AtSIF 3
ENG LTCDR: EPtW 1, AtB 1, EPtS 3
TAC LT: TS 1, BFAW 2
TAC ENS: TT 1
SCI LT: PH1, HE2

Basically the default tanking setup and it works well. If you want more emphasis on team support you can include ES3 or TSS2 in there

First any newb useing the 3 piece borg set shouldnt even be posting advice online. Second if anything at all for tank go with 2 borg 2 maco setup. third real elite players use the complete maco for tanking complet omega for dps. 3 if ur still useing mx1 weapons...dont post your newblyness online and confuse the next rank of players. 4 wow fix your bridge crew no wonder why so many pugs fail stf ...people like you.

Your engineering consoles are not good. Tetraburnium or Ablative are good, Electroceramic is good only for STF.
Get assimilated module console.
Put MACO shield when you can. MACO deflector is better too.
And Aceton beam is useless, put some better skill.

don't listen to him, that is just one very childish mans opinion he seems to forget everyone was new once even him and i am sure he made even worse building mistake when he first started..

and using full sets is great but a real player understand what the benifits of each piece does and can mix and match them,

For example my current ship i am using is the Fleet Tactical Escort, i run with

MACO MK XII Def and Shield with BORG engine

OR

MACO MK XII Shield, Omega DEF and the Borg Engine..

i use the omega DEF for extra accuracy, the MACO shield is the best shield vs the borg and the borg eng has nice turn rate and speed boosts, ill use the MACO DEF from time to time for the extra shield boost..


Like i said bud meet up with me in game ill help you out

Not a fan of cruisers at all...especially for TACs.

You should be in an escort!!!

But..with that in mind? two DBBs up front with quantum torpedo and one other of your desire. You could put both photons up front as well!

Four turrets in the back of the boat.

With this...you should alway be facing your target. I do something similar on a Recluse carrier and can contribute a lot of DPS if needed....

Beams are pretty weak and most would be surprised at how effective turrets are on the back of bigger ships can be.

I also recommend two pieces sets with two piece sets: maco deflector and shield, borg engine and console or omega defelector and shield and borg engine and console.

The third procs for the set bonuses can be dropped in favor of the passive hull regen of the two piece set. The BOFF power should handle your shield heals!

Again..not a a fan of cruisers since most already run those and a good tac escort that can deal DPS AND tank are few and far between.

As a tac...I enjoy running the multi-vector escort. The capability to run Gravity well for crowd control plus the universal 'fart' console from the ferengi lock box can make this escort VERY special if used correctly.

Glass cannon is apt for a description but I've been able to survive in far more situations than I ever thought I could!

Up front.....quad phaser cannon, quantum torpedo, phaser DBB, phaser DHC.
Back.....three phaser turrets

Maco deflector/shield (or omega)
Borg engine

Borg console, universal fart console(theta radiation vent), neutronium alloy
shield consoles (+ capacity)
four tac phaser consoles

Aux battery, deployable turret

Com Tac: Tac team, attack pattern beta, torpedo spread 3, attack patter beta 3
lt tac: tac team, cannone scatter volley
ensign tac: Beam overload 1
lt. eng: EPTS1, EPTW2
lt comm sci: hazard emitters, transfer shield strength2, gravity well 1

This has a superb alpha strike and the capability to do crowd control. Kind of a glass cannon but has enough heals to do what is needed. You might die, but you die far less and you are a good dps dealer!

Cheers
