right now i'm a tac captain flying a Kumari Charal(engie one) and i've been thinking if going all cannons upfront or 4 cannons/ 1 DBB over my current set up of 4 cannons/ 1 torp. honestly i just haven't founda thread where it says hands down either of the 3 is the premiere set up

It is just best to stick with 2 DHC unless you have plenty of energy to spare for shields and impluse.

so something like DHCx2/DCx2/torp would be better than a DHCx4/torp?

Nonsense. DHC energy drain is easy to control, virtually any ship can do it. The tooltip numbers are highly misleading, since beam arrays are the biggest drainers.

Agreed, I run the same ship with 3 of the Advanced Fleet Andorian DHCs, the 1 Wing Cannon and the Wide-angle Quantum Torp Launcher, along with 1 AF Andorian Phaser Turret and Cutting Beam. I very rarely run out of energy during a fight and when I do it's normally because of a debuff.

Running a beam plasma build on my Khyzon.
Everything plasma except for the wing cannons.
Tested with dhc's but i actually do more damage with a beam build.
