# 1 The Fleet Somraw....
10-19-2012, 12:14 AM
in the future, I plan to either take one of my Tac characters out of his current ship and put him into a Fleet Somraw, or make a new character to put him into the Somraw. I plan to make this build for PVP as I am developing a great love for it now that I know what to do.

Here are my thoughts for the setup:

Fore Weapons will be either:

1 DBB and 3 DHC's

or

4 DHC's

Aft Weapons:

3 Turrets

The Boff Layout:

TT1, BO2, APO1, CRF3
TT1, CRF1, APO1
EPTS1, RSP1 or ASIF1
EPTS1
PH1, HE2

Consoles:

Tac: 4 of same energy type as the weapons I use
Engineering: 1 Neutronium, 2 others I don't know
Science: Field Generator x2, Flow Cap

Set: 2 piece Omega, KHG shield

Doffs:

2 Shield Distribution Officers
I dunno what to do with the other three

What do you think? Notice the absence of the Borg set? I am bracing for the eventual breaking of the 4 piece set

When you replace 1x EptS1 for EptE1 and equip 2 purple or 3 blue damage engineers, you have both emergency powers almost 100% uptime.

Furthermore, be aware that BO drains a lot of power which causes CFR to do less damage. You can change that one to APD.

I've been bracing myself in advance for the Borg change too. Two-piece Omega is always good. I've had a lot of success with some of the fleet utility stuff, and what's nice is that it'll probably get better if the next tier is just +1 versions of the same basic items.

I haven't figured out what to use instead, but HE is now crap.

on 1 character i swapped between a fleet ktinga and somraw retro, both were great fun and very capable, then i got the vet ship which is a perfect cross between the 2 and haven't looked back. i ran 4 DHCs on them, 2 purple damage control doffs and 3 BFI doffs

TT1, CSV1, APO1, CRF3
TT1, APD1, APO1
EPtS1, AtS1
EPtW1
TSS1, HE2


APD and 2 APO works great together like mentioned, CSV1 and CRF1 only have a 100 dps difference between them, and CSV AOE can be very helpful in certain cases.

with the damage control doffs i had 100% up time on emergency power to weapons and shields, and the bfi doffs fill in for an RSP. HE 1 is kinda weak, but with an aux bat HE2 can heal over 1000 a tic, wile getting focused on, TSS is great to lessen the effect of it

also i suggest using the omega or fleet resilient shield on tier 2 and tier 3 fleet ships, they have a flat additional shield hitpoints that inst mentioned, and their total capacity with low capacity shields is higher then it is on any other ships.

This already covered most of what I was going to say.

I'd also use 2 RCS consoles in your open eng slots and swap out the flow cap console for the borg console. Even without the set bonus, I think the borg console is better than the marginal boost to tet glider/polaron proc/tet proc that you get from one flow cap console.

Also recommend going with HE1/TSS2.

Without torpedos to shoot through the downed shields, is BO and a DBB really needed on this build?

I run a (2) DHC, (1) torp, (1) DBB on my FLSom because I use the BO+DBB for popping shields for my Torps with the DHCs just for damage support.
