# 1 Kumari Build
02-22-2013, 07:33 AM
The build below I tested out in several STFs and FFAs to determine peak DPS and average DPS. I am normally an Assualt Cruiser person however I get 6000+ DPS out of them. So I would enjoy feedback from those more into escorts so that I can tweak the build and improve upon.

This is not a PVP build but PVE.

Due to the lack of tanking ability I choose to use the XII Borg space set to improve survivability. The built in tractor beam also allows me to hold in place more manueverable targets once every 3 mins as well as adding to the hull damage.

Fwd Guns:

Quad Phaser
2 MK XII Fleet DHCs *CtH*
Wing Cannon
Fleet Quantum *CtH*

Aft Guns:
Cutting Beam
Fleet Turret *CtH*

Weapons Bats and Subspace field modulator

Eng Consoles:
Assimilated Module, Zero-Point Energy Conduit, One of 3 Kumari Consoles

Sci Consoles: The other Kumari Consoles

Tac: *currently*
4 Phaser Consoles *one XII blue the others XI blue*
1 Quantum Console *XI Purple*

BO Layout:

Lt Sci: HE TSS
Cmdr Tac: CRFIII, HYIII, APD, Tac Team
Lcdr Tac: APO, CSVI, Tac Team
EN Eng: EPtS

Doffs *All Purple*
1% to strip 3 buffs on a target
2 of the reduce AP cooldowns
2 of the chance to reduce Cannon cooldowns

In testing I was able to get up to 8300 DPS peak averaged about 5900dps highest shot I was able to get was a 30k hit from the overloaded cannon. Something else that is very nice. If you get a sci guy to gravwell a large group and then hit them with an overload you are going to do a ton of damage spreadout. The extra tank provided from the borg space set made up for the lack of tanking Boff spots. I was able to scoot out of a fight and recharge my shields very quickly and get back into a fight.

Can you provide a screen shot during a STF of the damage ticks.

I've already dropped the Tactical Kumari console and just run the cannon buddies and the tachyon shield melter because the 3 piece bonus isn't really helpful. But the two piece bonus is bananas.

Can you get more DPS by replacing the turret on the back with the Romulan Experimental Plasma Beam Array? I have not tried it but I am thinking about it.

I have never been a fan of mixing weapons types. At the same time the turret benifits from the CRF and CSV a beam would not. Also you miss out on being about to add the turret to your forward fire. I have however considered adding a torp to the back. Either the cluster mine torp or if it will go in the back the wide angle torp pretty sure thats a foward only torp.

Because of the beam's targeting angle (standard 250'), you would lose all of that slot's DPS while attacking with your cannons.

How does one use the Phaser Dispersal Array? I don't get it

If anyone is interested I have 2 builds for both the Fleet excel and the Assualt refit that get very good DPS for cruisers. The Excel is based on a plasma build and single point DPS over AOE. With that I have gotton BOIII hits for 60k. The Assualt cruiser build uses spiral disrupters and a combination of FAW and BOs. Each setup nets about 6000 peak raw DPS.

I bet you would get more dps if you dropped that torpedo console and got another phaser console.

Why add 30% damage to 1 weapon when you can add it to 5?
