How will the build being discussed operate in other theaters, such as doing damage or support? I ask because I'm also a new engineer and I'm looking for some viable builds that maximize DPS and survivability. Any pointers are appreciated.
Here's what I am running right now. I posted this in another post but I find it works for me. Granted, I am a Commander (27) right now and prefer to be a more Jack-Of-All-Trades/Might Glaicer type of Tank/Engineer but it works for me and the Avalon. (AKA: I prefer to hit as hard as my enemies are)
Energy Weapons & Projectile Weapons 3, Structural Integrity 7, Subsystem Repair 7, Warp Core Efficiency 7, Power Insulators and Shield Systems 3
Targeting Systems 1, Starship Electro-Plasma/Warp Core Potential 4
I'd have to look to get my Ground abilities as the time I wrote these down (modified for level), I was seeking advice on how to build up my Mirror Assault I got from a Lock Box while a Lt. at the time.
