So I own the Avenger and Fleet Avenger on Rylana now.

I took my DNT Omega X escort cannon build (except its 4DHCs + 1DBB fore on the Avenger) and threw it on the Avenger

Lt Tactical - TT1/CSV1
LTComm Tactical - TT1/CSV1/APO1
Ensign Tact - BO1
Comm Engy - EPtS1/RSP1/DEM2/RSP3
Lt Sci - TSS1/HE2

Same equipment with the consoles moved around (exchange one mag reg for the avengers special console)

It did over 13k DPS in an infected run.

This ship.... hits like a freight train in PvE, and a beam build is going to be even crazier.


PvP its a little more dicey and it needs vetted better still, but PvE wise you simply cannot go wrong with this ship.

The team buffs are amazing when stacked together (a fleetmate was running the shield one, me the weapon power one)

My feedback is thank you cryptic for giving us at least one ship thats on par with its romulan counterpart. This thing IMO is as powerful as the scimitar is

I like the ship, and I can't wait to buy it myself, but I put my Akira class up next to one purchased by a fleet member, and it's really small...

It's a Cruiser, and the Akira matches it in size? I wanted a bigger ship, to be honest.

Do the Avenger have a unique bridge layout?
Just curious as I'm buying mine when my money clears at the bank in the next few hours.

Thanks for the size compare, this was something I was questioning.. Eventually I will get this ship (fleet variant after that) but its not the "shut up and take my money" that it seemed...

IMO they are both in the Destroyer category, between escorts and fuill cruisers.

Size/power categories in this game: frigate, escort, destroyer, cruiser, carrier. Destroyer class is ~12 turn-rate (+/- 3) with ~35-40k base hull.

Hey Brandon -- do we know if the VATA console abilites (torps, beam, etc) are boosted by skills or consoles (tac for the quantums/chronitons, sci for the tachyon)?

Thanks!

If the KDF can get a Fleet D7 (That can be upgraded to a T5-U), the Feds should have a Fleet Exeter.

Well, I don't think Cryptic has to worry about sales. Space is filled with Avengers, unlike the Ar'Kif lol.

The screenshots really don't do it justice IMO. I sat in orbit around ESD and just stared at all of the different Avengers coming and going, and they look really good. Zone chat was filled with people loving them too. I think Cryptic nailed it with this one.

Now if only my dil would refine faster so I can get one myself.

The Exeter and Constitution-class refit are classed as cruisers yet the Akira-class is also much larger than those too. I actually like that it isn't yet another huge monster ship to be honest.

Ah, so that's why this ship looks as good as it does.













I kid, I kid.
