True. My quote just made my head hurt so much...

And I still want my Lancipatorinator, Cryptic. Z-store please, there are actual pilots out there so take my money so I can 1 shot them.
/sarcasm off.

Seriously, thank you for making the Dissipator targetable.

Actually, it has the turn rate of the RSV. Not really sluggish at all, unlike an Assault Cruiser.

this ship will likely have half the turn rate a separated MVAM escort will have. and its a DHC using destroyer/escort, not a sci ship

Missed the "Can Load Cannons" part, but my comment was mostly directed at Shim for calling it another snoozer.

Uh... What's a snoozer?

Yes on the Destroyer front. I like how Cryptic has been throwing out nothing but hybrids these days. Unique builds abound!

Hmm looks like its gonna be fueled by the new Aux2Sif Doff. That sucks those are so damn expensive on the exchange atm.

Otherwise, Damn thats a hell of a ship, looks like I know where my antiproton gear is going after I plasrupter up my vesta.

Most Federation cruisers (and the Bortas) due to their poor turn rate, reliance on wide-arc low-spike damage output weaponry, and generally non-visceral playstyle. Not that being a healer can't be nerve wracking, exciting, and fulfilling, but most of the time Fed cruisers aren't all that zippy.

Actually my beef is less with its "escorty" side and more with the fact that it's a snoozer-in-name-only. My instinct is that a ship with that impulse profile and turn rate can't support such an offensive BOff layout.

I'm not saying it's a terrible ship or anything, I just figure you won't be able to get as creative as you'd like.

It's Tac-heavy and out turns the Vetsa while having better shields than most escorts. Stick a VM1+Doff up there in the LTC slot w/ Ens Engineer for rotating... pretty much whatever you like (my money's on EPtA and EPtS with an RSP or Aux2Sif in the LT slot) and it ought to get by just peachy. Well, you can hope anyway. It's still out turning a Fleet Vor'cha.

Hmm... something like....

CMDR Tac: TT1 / CSV 1/ APO 1 / CRF 3
LT Tac: TT1 / DP:B1

LTC Sci: HE1 (PH1) / TSS 2 (HazEm 2) / VM1 (TSS3)

LT Eng: EPtS 1 / RSP 1

ENS Uni (Eng): EPtA 1

DOffs: 3 Purple Damage Control (EPtX Doffs), 2 Purple VM DOffs (or 1 VM DOff + 1 Warp Core Engineer)

YMMV.

6 Single Beams, 2 Torps
APO3, BO3, TS2x2, TT1x2, EPTS1x2, A2SIF1, TSS1, TSS2, HE3


Or possibly this:

4 DHC's, 4 turrets

Polaron weapons, Breen ship's console. Possibly the Breen set for the Breen Energy Siphon on top of it.
