So i have a tac escort retro, I'll get a fleet as soon as possible, and the best i can do on dps is a 2500 average. I have 3 fleet ap dhc's and a fleet quantum up front and 3 ap fleet turrets in the back. 4 ap tac consoles, 2 shield emitter consoles, 2 neutronium and a montotanium, all purple mkxi and mkxii. I'll hit level 5 on omega rep soon and will get borg and maco gear at that time for now i'm runniing fleet engine deflector and shields. covariant.

My boff skills are


TT1, SCV1,TORPS3,CRF3

TT1, TS2, APD2

BO1

EPS1, RSP1

HE1, HE2

For doffs I have a purple conn officer for tt cool down, a blue enery weapons officer for cannon cool downs, a purple energy weapons officer for cannon and beam buff removal, a purple torpedo officer for torp cool downs, and isis, a purple entertainer for inhibiting a targets perception on use of cannons.

I'm sure that bo1 is useless but that extra ensign slots a bugger. I tried 4 dhc's up front but they only fire 3 at a time with one on constant cool down anyway so i figured i'd try a torp again. I try to get as close as possible when i fire at targets, but yet I cant get above a 2500 dps ave. Any help you can give would be great, thank you very much everybody

you don't need a tt doff when already equipped 2 tt. you only could use 1 tt, but then you should choose 2 purple tt doffs. if you're running a tac you can lower your torp abilities and csv cd's when needed with tactical initiative.

i suggest following boff layout:

tt1, crf1, apo(?), crf3
tt1/ts1, csv1, apo(?)
thy1

eps1, rsp1

he1, tss2

which career and what powerlevels are you running? weapons should go with a level of 100(+bonus).

for PvE you want attack pattern beta. Try this.

tac team 1, CSV 1, CRF 2, APB 3
tac team 1, TS 2, APB 2
TS 1

apo is great as tractor-counter, speed and turn-rate-boost and counter for a lot of things that affect your engine. ts3 is great to have in a torp-boat. but i suggest you focus on cannon-abilities as thats where your dps is in.
ts3 is good when facing pvp'ers with carriers or pve-packs, but ts1 and csv1 should be enough against combat-pets.

from the wiki:"Attack Pattern Omega grants a damage buff and resistance while making you immune to movement debuffs. It also bestows a short burst of speed and maneuvering to quickly close in or escape out of range. "

My suggestion would be something like this....

Tac Com - TT1, APB1, CSV2, APB3
Tac Lt. Com - TT1, TorpS2, CSV2
Tac Ens - TorpS1
Eng Lt - EPtS1, EPtS2
Sci Lt - HE1, TSS2

But this would only be for PvE.

So my build is probably ok, i just need to change my boff skills? my specs are definitly aimed at tactical with max in maneuvres, attack patterns energy weapons, and all that stuff.

use crf-abilities in connection with your attack patterns. that should pack a nice punch.
indeed the rest of the build seems absolut ok to me. you may switch some doffs (one to reduce cd on eps1 f.e., shield distr. doff, etc.) and 1 shield ermitter for a universal console or such, but nothing else i can spot. others may be wiser .

if this is a serious statement i would suggest to join pvp bootcamp. when you can survive in pvp almost nothing will stand you in pve ...
if it's not serious: i didn't meant to insult you or such, nor would say what you said. probably i'm not that good myself. even dunno about my dps output. i just do know: things go boom and sometimes one of those things is my ship
