# 1 Cruiser Engineering Officers
02-28-2013, 01:35 PM
After figuring out other parts of the build, setting up the Engineering Bridge Officer slots seems to be the most troublesome. It seems you are stuck with a lot of skills that share the same cooldown, or skills that have situational effectiveness.

I was trying for having limited shared cooldown skill layout, but failed.

Mostly for PvE.

Anyway, here is my current build, only die to borg invisi-torps, but feels bland.

Commander:
1. EPtW1
2. RSP
3. Aux to Dampners
4. Aux to SIF 3

LT. Commander:
1. EPtS 1
2. EPtS 2
3. Aux to SIF 2

(prefer not to fly a ship with an extra ensign slot)

Boarding parties seem ineffective, and Aceton/Extend/Plasma seem highly situational.

Ideas? It just seems odd that so many builds end up wasting slots to the shared cooldowns.

You've got 3 copies of Aux2SIF. You only need one, since it's a 15s CD w/ a 15s system CD.

If you want to be tough,

EPtW1
RSP1
EPtS3
A2SIF3

EPtW1
ET2
EPtS3

If you want some more offensive capability

EPtW1
EPtS2
DEM1
EWP3

EPtW1
EPtS2
A2SIF2


Eject Warp Plasma is actually a great ability. If you want a more support role, swap out the above commander w/

EPtW1
EPtS2
ET3
Extend Shields3

Make sure you hit an EPtX ability every 15s, whichever one you can.

My bad...

One of them was supposed to be the Aux to Whatever enhances turn rate/flight speed. Dampners... I'll fix it.

What a Pratt go get in your escort and do one

Ewp is fantastic especially for pinning all these speed tankers down

As a engineer you should be training and using emergency power to shields 3, invaluable

Aceton beam is a joke
