Hello fellow captains, I am a level capped Romulan tactical officer with loyalties to the Klingon Empire. I have myself a Scimitar and currently run a typical dual heavy cannon type build. I have been hearing allot about Beam boats and how well they preform and am looking for a beam boat build that would work with a tac scimitar. In that regard if anyone can help I am looking for full build info such as weapons, equipment, skills, duty officers, bridge officers and skill, ya know the whole 9 yards. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Beam builds are pretty simplistic. Basically its 7 to 8 arrays (Some replace 1 with a cutter) its a crit build focus, so Romulan+Borg universal consoles for + crit chance and Severity. Being Romulan of course youll already be stacking + Crit/Severity Boffs.
Then of course youll want FAWIII and reduce beam attack CD Doffs. You can then use Aux2Battery if you want for more reduced CD/ Leech is a must for this though.
Some high points:
* Romulan Plasma Beam Arrays
* Assimilated Module/KCB
* full Aux2Bat with the purple techs
* Valdore Console
* Full Superior Romulan Operative BOFFs
I'm not actually done putting the whole thing together, (current progress is here), but even the partial build is pulling 13-14K sustained DPS in ISE, while tanking the gate, spheres and tac cube simultaneously.
(It's funny to imagine 14K DPS as 'needs work,' but here we are. I watched someone doing almost 27K with the same kind of build a couple nights ago.)
