Again this is just how I do it. It isn't a sci build, it isn't the only build. It's a build focused on doing the most amount of damage in the briefest amount of time and living to tell the tale. And that's it. No dogfighting, none of that bit. That's what raptors are for. This ship has 21.7k hull or so and its never getting any better. My heavy I could buff up to 43k hull. See a difference there? Good you do! No dog fighting, no hanging around.
Uncloak, kill/dont kill, evade, cloak.
Lol, enough of me being a noob! Hope choo all like the vid and here's the answers to what u asked. Cheers!
1. Since the name of the game is really bringing defense down to zero, that leaves you with TB or EWP. I really can't think of anything else that does it so quickly. And as EWP is behind you....that leaves TB. So specifically for what I'm trying to do, just TB.
2. That could be useful. Or a scramble, or some other brief stun or confuse to help you get away if you're in a bit of a tight spot. As a final killing blow with THIS type of build, I don't know really. You'd need to drop TB3 and to get those crits you'd need a TB somewhere. So that drops you down to one sci buff. So could it get a kill in that situation where they're hanging by a thread? Sure. And I know that losing one sci buff seems trivial, but PH and HE combine to remove you from dots or tb's that could prevent you from cloaking. And its all about the cloaking.
3. KHG for all those reasons plus the 3 pc bonus. Really these hits are soooooo fast and close. 1.5k out decloaking and closing range. That's tight. How much can you really fit in there. GA actually has a flight time. So it could be tricky to actually apply it.
4. I had a TB doff so I did try it for a bit. And straight up, sometimes I used the TB only. I'd pop out and just pin someone for others to shoot when MY alpha as down. It works
5. The doffs are in the vid. I use impulse cap as my second evasion. I have evasion doffs, but they aren't making themselves useful inside that twenty second window. So I have a mix of doffs I use to enhance my get away abilities.
