In PVE, where everything has just too much HP and no shields, I pair the WAQT with a Ferengi MRLS then slot a Rapid Reload PWO. In a broadside, I have both projectiles proccing one another, giving the ship a stream of torps (with the occasional spread) on top of beams.

And hell yeah it looks awesome, beams going everywhere, streams of smoke from the MRLS, and spreads of Q-torps.

I can agree with this. The Regent class is a fine ship, both in terms of looks and performance.

I rather like the Wide Angle Quantum and the Regent is a fine ship I may use Excelsior instead of Regent but those 2 are so alike in BOFF setup (Regent has Ens Tac while Excel has Ens Eng) and the same Console setup (4 Eng, 2 Sci, 3 Tac), so those differences are minimal. Regent is very nice and even better can make it use the Sovereign skin. I of course have the Wide Angle Quantum on my Excelsior so I can easily broadside and hit with some extra torpedo damage easily as well.

Sorry for the noob like questions, I want to get as much info as possible before I buy a ship.
Your being very smart getting as much information as possible there are no refunds if your unhappy with your purchase.

The Avengers VATA Console has a very high spike, combined with a long cooldown. This results in low DPS.

But you do get to fire it every 2 mins. If your considering a Dual Heavy Cannon Cruiser the Avenger is your only choice Fed side with out expensive Lockbox/Lobi ships.

The Regent with it's WAQT torpedo is one of the best beam boats available but the console it comes with is garbage.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
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.

It has its uses. You can use it to slow Raptors or Negh'Var's that are heading for the Kang on The Cure Found (Elite) or to slow Nanite Borg Spheres heading to repair generator.

I use it on my shuttle. That's where it shines the most.

That is brilliant. I may have to give atmosphere assault another go with that added to my set up.

Both the Avenger and the Regent are great ships.

I personally feel the Avenger has a bit more flexibility than the Regent.

Good choice, far more flexible and superior tac and eng set up overall. The Regent is fine, don't get me wrong, but it isn't worth getting just for the WAQT over the Avenger.
