# 1 HoH'SuS builds?
08-24-2013, 05:42 AM
So I've decided to get the Fleet HoH'SuS, but I'm a little unsure how to outfit it BOff-wise and console-wise (with the exception of 4 damage consoles).

Any builds, DOffs, or recommended consoles, etc. would be appreciated.

i got one advice for you my friend.

Paint it blue and throw it in the sea.

Romulan ''raiders'' are much better since they got better combat cloack and they dont suffer the drawback for it like the klingon BoP's.


I am sorry i dont make the rules..... this how it goes with PWE greedy sandbags....

BoPs have the exact same cloak as the Romulans. All Battle Cloaks are the same it seems. You just don't have a Romulan crew to max out your cloak.

If you want to play an Escort Just use the Commander & a Lt for Tacs.

But if you want to mess with people you load up on the Science abilities. Jam, Scramble, Viral Matrix with a Trykin's Rift thrown in.

So what job do you want the ship to perform? Oh and PVE or PVP?

If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.

Try this on for size: http://skillplanner.stoacademy.com/?...kichopper_3722

This is something I'm working towards, mostly for RP, but in a good team it should be a wickedly effective harasser/alpha-striker.

Yeah reminds me of one dev stated they are against their being powers like beam overload that do massive amounts of damage in one move so I can expect their plans with ships like these is to let them die slowly over time. Reason I say this is that the KDF population has always been small so they did LoR like they did so the federation players can use fed only resources for these new romulans and their better ambush attacking ships. Although they do harp that its unique for the KDF bops to be able to have universal stations but when the romulan ships are high end tactical anyways there is no real advantage.

You can basically do a 4x tactical console with a rapid fire 3 or omega 3 and balance it out so you get the 30% + 15% bonus or the 20% + 25% (Rapid Fire 3 + Omega 1) or (Rapid fire 2 + Omega 3). Those two setups maximize what you get but like the one with 5 tact consoles it has a 26-30% advantage there and then a 10 second more advantage if you are a reman so basically the fed remans using this tactic have a decent 50% + advantage on any KDF ambushing ships.

tt / thy2 / apo
epts / eptw
he / scram sensors

or

tt / crf / bo3 / apb
tt / thy2 / apo
eptE / eptw
he / tss

hit & run

for stf:
tt / crf / bo3 / apb
pol hull / tss / grav well

Not quite. Before Romulan Warbirds even begin to benefit from their awesome BOFF traits, the Romulan Battle Cloak is superior to even the regular Battle Cloak. The biggest improvement is coming out of cloak damage bonus. Stack that 10% damage bonus alongside thier BOFF traits (to include making their cloak cooldowns shorter), alongside ships that pay for nothing for having Battle Cloaks across the board.

Yes, the game is handed to the Romulans to make it easier for them.

It really depends what mission you intend to play. You have a bird-of-prey, the most flexible ship in the game, use that flexibility !

(1) All Pew-pew against sitting targets :
Tactical 4+3 ; 2 tactical teams, 2 cannon scatter volleys, 3 attack patterns
Engineerig 2 ; EPtS, Aux2SIF (or RSP)
Science 2 ; Hazard Emitter, Transfert Shield Strength

(2) Group damage ("Stay there while I shoot"):
Tactical 4 ; Tactical team, cannon scatter volley, 2 attack patterns
Engineering 2+2 ; EPtS, EPtA, 2 Aux2Batt
Science 3 : Hazard Emitter, Tractor-beam Repulsor, Gravity Well
3 technicians and a gravimetric scientist as spatial Doffs

(3) Super-solid gunship A
Tactical 4 ; tactical team, cannon scatter volley (or rapid fire against single targets), attack patterns omega and delta
Engineering 3+2 ; EPtS, EPtA, 2 Aux2Batt, Reverse Shield Polarity 2
Science 2 : Hazard Emitter, science team (or transfer shield strength)

(4) "Dragon" raider
Tactical 4+2 ; 2 tactical teams, 2 cannon scatter volleys, 2 attack patterns
Engineering 3+2 : 2 EPtS, 2 EPtW, Aux2SIF (or Engineering Team ?)
no science

(5) Super-solid gunship B
Tactical 4 ; tactical team, cannon scatter volley (or rapid fire), attack patterns omega and delta
Engineering 3+2+2 ; EPtS, EPtA, EPtW, Engineering team, 2 Aux2Batt, Reverse Shield Polarity 2
no science

(6) Anything in between (e.g. 4+2/2/3 )

(7) In a PvP team, you'll have to adjust your build to the needs of the team.
