# 1 Need Opinions on new ship
01-29-2014, 08:12 AM
Hi.

ok basically i wanna have a play with a diff ship if there is anything else that performs better than my current.

i currently have a Fleet assault cruiser.

now, i have enough lobi to buy a ship from the lobi store, and i have bastion cruiser still in its box ..... so

question is, is there a really decent ship from the lobi store, or is it worth selling a lobi ship + the bastion and look at buying a galor ?


i was looking at the monbosh with an A2B build with antiproton beam arrays, the cutting beam and the voth antiproton 360 beam array.


any input from people who know their shizzle is much appretiated

The MONBOSH is going to feel alot like your Fleet Sovereign. (which is a great ship btw)

If you're really looking for a change of pace look towards a science ship or escort. You can buy a mirror ship cheaply and test it before deciding. Better to test than waste 100 million EC on something your not going to like.

Strangely enough I just went BACK to the Assault Cruiser from my Oddy and my Avenger Battlecruiser. It still does a lot of damage and tanks a lot of incoming fire. There's honestly nothing wrong with the ship.

If you just want to try some other ships out look for either of the 2 mirror escorts on the exchange. They're pretty cheap and only cost ECs. That'll give you a different playstyle without breaking the bank.


Other than that -- and this is just a personal suggestion -- might I suggest the temporal destroyer from the lobi store? Universal slots so you can customize it as you wish. Or for a very different playstyle, JHDC for some carrier play-style.

Galor would do you well. Or you could wait for the new apex to be released....

Just a thought

I agree with edalgo, a Monbosh running an A2B build isn't going to feel much different from your FAC (which I assume is also running an A2B build, or should be).

The FAC is one of the best cruisers in the game. If you feel it's underperforming, I'd bet it's due to your build, not the ship. Post your setup here and we can help you tweak it.

Another thought is if you're looking for a cruiser type ship (Idk you experience in STO) you can look at the Jem'Hadar Dreadnought. Pets plus commander Tactical station.

its not due to my FAC underperforming as such im runing an A2B setup on it atm, im just looking for a bit of a change in terms of ship alltogether, even if it plays similar, as long as its a diffrant ship.

i'de like to hear more about the jem'hadar dread, whats its performace like in a pvp environment, and how do you generaly build them ? do you go A2B with beams coz of the low turn rate ?

Look into something different from just a cruiser. Galor cost an arm and leg, and frankly, isn't that much different, much less "better" than the fleet cruiser you have. It's decent, but is dated and doesn't offer anything extraordinary, the feel is similar to a much cheaper excelsior.

From what I see in the pvp queues, pets die bloody quickly but Jem bug pets are annoying as hell...oh they do die. After attempting to suicide bomber someone...

The ship it self seem to be pretty decent team support, but if you want a team support role, recluse wins hands down.

Ya...I wouldn't recommend the Jem dread for pvp trials.

I'm a green horn so maybe it's inexperience talking
