# 1 Defiant idea
10-06-2012, 03:18 PM
Hi guys/girls,

I have an idea for a Defiant and I would like some input/feedback.
Note: primary goal is PvE but it should also be able to deal with PvP.

Fleet Defiant
Fore
  • Phaser Dual Heavy Cannons Mk XII [Acc] [CrtH] [Borg] or Fleet variant
  • Dual Phaser Beam Bank Mk XII [Acc] [CrtH] [Borg] or Fleet variant
  • Quantum Torpedo Launcher Mk XII [CrtD] [CrtH] [Borg] or Fleet variant
  • Phaser Quad Cannon

Aft
3x PhaserTurret Mk XII [Acc] [CrtH] [Borg] or Fleet variant

Deflector
Borg

Impulse
Borg

Shields
M.A.C.O. Resilient Shield Array Mk XII

Devices
  • Subspace Field Modulator
  • ?
  • ??

Engineering consoles
  • 2x Console - Engineering - Neutronium Alloy Mk XI (Rare)
  • Console - Universal - Assimilated Module

Science consoles
  • Console - Science - Field Generator Mk XI (Rare)
  • Console - Science - Field Generator Mk XI or Console - Universal - Cloaking Device

Tactical consoles
5x Console - Tactical - Phaser Relay Mk XI (Rare)

As for the bridge officers:

Tac Commander
Tac Team1, HY2, CRF2, APB3

Tac Lt. Commander
HY1, Tac Team2, BO3

Tac Ensign
BTW1

Eng Lt.
EPtS1, RSP1

Sci Lt.
HE1, TSS2

Edit 1.
Here's a link to the skill planner.

Edit 2.
I've chosen for the phaser setup as there are no alternatives for the quad cannon that I wish to use.
Leaving the quad cannon out, tetryon would be my second choice.
Now,... be gentle

at this rate I'm just going to stop playing because builds like this make cruisers worthless

Is this a Fleet Tactical Escort Retrofit?

If so, there are only 2 devices, from my understanding. Also, there's 3 Engineering Consoles.

As for BOFF skills, I'd much rather have CRF3 instead of APB3.

It is a fleet tactical escort retrofit.

About the devices, I guess stowiki is right and the skill planner has a minor flaw.

Could you elaborate the CRF3 instead of APB3? I find APB3 one of the most usefull skill a tac captain can have. Especially when you have 9 points spent in the attack patterns.

Tac Ensign
TT1

Eng Lt.
EPtS1, EPtS2

I'd change shields to OMEGA Mk XII and change fore weapons to all Dual Heavys and one quantum.

I know the Defiant is considered a "glass canon", but isn't all the shield healing not a bit much?

Why the Omega shields? They have a higher regen but capacity seems very limited.
As for the dual heavys, that is one option also although in another thread I've read that it is possible with the quad cannons that you might get a lower aggro with the about the same DPS output.

instead of
Tac Ensign BTW1 try Tac Ensign BTS1
you will have a chance to disable the oponent shields and destroy it faster
and the APO3 is more eficient than APD3 u will have a bonus in critical, damage and moovment
and for
Eng Lt.
EPtS1, EPtS2 in cycle with TT1X2 in my opinion is better
i run 2 Phaser Dual Heavy Cannons Mk XII
Dual Phaser Beam Bank Mk XII
Phaser Quad Cannon
and the omega set is more focused on damage but u will ned to hit and run
i have the same build like you exept those modification and skills focused on energy beam no torpedos and is a killer :d at least in my opinion
