the galor build has all the basics i would suggest, with just a personal style too it, which is good. what i post i mainly intend to be basic starting points for people to build on, not an exact setup

regarding EWP3 and DEM3, only use EWP3 if you can slot as many partical gens as you can. and/or if you decide to use plasma weapon, the plasma tac consoles buff it as well. in any other situation, and especially if you use glider, DEM3 and flow caps are best for maximizing a cruiser's firepower, and you use EWP1 as a snare.

due to the torp cooldown near removal, and projectile doffs, photon torpedoes are now basically useless. they might have a use if you dont use projectile doffs, but you left with a trop thats not doing much of anything damage wise. a ship that cant use DHCs cant use torps effectively ether, you cant spike down a shield faceing with any other weapon and expect to hit hull with torps.

thats why plasma is good, its not about the impact, its about the proc. buffed by plasma energy tac consoles too actually. transphasic are the other option, they are intended to be fired at shields. quantums might be good if you have 3 flow cap buffed glider all but removing all their shields, and they haven't dies or ran off yet.

Glider..does that still work? I thought it was nerfed where it wasnt any good anymore....


Last night Mr. Dontdrunkkimshoot help me set up my ship. I increased my firepower by least 15%. I was top dps on my team in a cruiser on all my matches (even the ones I lost). The additon of Aux to Batteries and DEM is amazing. Its a must have for TAC Cruiser captains.

im glad i could help. if anyone sees me on ranting about something in opvp, hit me up with a question if you got one. afterward your effectiveness may be greatly increased! not so much a bootcamp, but a tutoring.


in my opinion glider is best on high fire rate damage over time dealers, single cannon cruisers to be precise. with the extra damage each shot, it takes a wile before it can have an effect on your enemy. what it adds to a spike damage dealers is very minor really. i wouldn't suggest using it on anything that would be prone to use DHCs and tries to kill shield facings 1 at a time.

it seems to effectively be a regen rate counter more then anything, and it takes a wile before that has an effect on your opponent. but for a damage over time ship, that means that eventually you will be shooting at a target with almost no shields left that cant out heal your direct shield damage. it also only seams to have a noticeable effect when you have 2 or 3 flow cap consoles buffing it.

So. My new tactical Captain accidentally got a respec while not on a base.
Currently she has a fleet escort (the free version).
I have one dual beam, and three DHCs in the fore section, and three turrets in the aft. All phaser.

My main concern is skill point allocation. Do you have a page that shows a good skill point allocation?

I fly KDF, but here's something I'd try:

I'd suggest trying it out on tribble 1st though.

Here's a question (or two) for you DDIS...

I have a new captain I'm levelling (a Joined Trill Science captain, with a view to sticking her in a Vesta as I have the 3-pack and love the look of the ship). Science has, in many ways, baffled me, as I'm not sure whether I should be all about control, or control + heals, or control + damage. Any good clues or builds you'd recommend?

I'm thinking of the following (using the Recon/Aventine version), so wondered if it would be any good;


Fore: 3x Aux-DHCs
Rear: 3x Phaser Turrets Mk XI (at least [Acc]x1 if not x2)
Deflector & Engines: Borg
Shield: MACO Mk XII
Devices: Subspace Field Modulator, Aux batteries, Weapon batteries
Eng Slots: 2x Neutronium
Sci: 1x Field Generator (I have a Mk XII V.Rare in my main char's bank), Graviton Generator Mk XI x2, Tachyokinetic Console
Tac: Quantum FFC, Fermian Transciever, 2x Phaser relays (Mk XI)

Hanger: Empty (but maybe shield drones)

BOffs:
Lt Tac: TT1, CRF1
Lt Eng: EPtS1, Extend Shields 1
CMdr Sci: Sci Team 1, HE2, Tractor 2, GW3
Ensign Uni: Tac: TT1
Lt.Cmdr Uni: Sci: PH1, TSS2, TBR2

DOffs:
1x Energy Weapons Officer (CRF cooldown)
2x Tractor Beam Officer
1x Gravimetric Sci (Purple)
1x Shield Distribution Officer (Purple)

The main aim would be to grab the enemy using the tractor (or throw them away), and pummel them (with the assistance of the team), with the HE, TSS and Fermian as team heals. Any thoughts? Is it a terribad build idea?

Tim

Edit: Yes, you read right, nothing in the hanger. There's too much naffing spam in PvP at the moment, especially when taking on KDF drain teams.

Tbh, I don't know what if any restrictions they put on tribble access since it went F2P b/c I'm a lifer. I'd read the FAQ in the tribble forum thread. If you do have access it'll direct you to page where you copy over a character from the holo server to the tribble server etc.

the link to Tribble FAQ.

Edit2:

I'm assuming if you use a respec on tribble it doesn't effect any respecs you have on holodeck. But, you may need a token on the character on the holodeck server before you copy it over.

Well I tested your skill allocation And I've done numerous patrols, and it works wonders it seems. (I still haven't allocated points to the last section because I don't have enough points.

But I can't imagine what kind of damage i'll do with admiral level weapons
