If you don't want to go fleet then exchange seems to pretty much be your only choice for Purple M12?

I have been looking at Disruptor dual Heavy [Acc]x2 [CrtH] - Plus the same for beams and turrents - better than fleet weapons?

I like disruptor but is there a better general type for elite level PvE?

Since the removal of the STF store, the only place to get Mk XII stuff is either Fleets, playing the exchange, or getting lucky with Doff missions.

As for weapon types, that really depends on the ship you're in.

Yeah but does the exchange stuff I mentioned which is about $7 mill a piece beat top fleet stuff?

I am not wacko crazy to spend $60 mill+ on accx3 - which for PvE is a total waste

how does Purple M12 exchange accx2 + CrtH compare to fleet?

The STF store weapons was pretty much rare weapons against everything, but Borg. Just do STFs, then they are great, but for everything else there is better weapons.

Basically all Fleet Weapons are ACCx1 and DMGx3 or DMGx3 and CrtH by default. So not much difference.

I'd say:

ACC is best, followed by DMG and CtrH on AP.
ACC can be almost as good as DMGx2, but not quite.

I dare say ACCx1 DMGx3 is best and only ACCx3 is superior in some circumstances.
ACCx2 DMG would be roughly equal to fleet weapons, ACCx2 CtrH only if it's Antiproton.

The disruptors you mentioned would be rather exactly one standard ability (using it as some kind of measurement) worse than a fleet weapon, which is only rather slightly.

I like a lot of elements of the new Rep system, but I'm a little annoyed that there are not more ways to get MK XII gear.

I think Omega should give antiprotons and perhaps a few other damage types (phaser, disruptor?)

What about the Spiral Wave Disruptors? Or other hybrid weapons?

Clarification: these are 'Advanced' fleet weapons. 'Elite' fleet weapons will have another special modifier or ability. But you'll need T5 fabricator to unlock those.

For ground weapons, the Elite fleet weapons are better than the purple mark XII, imo.
