I fly a scimitar, and have become pretty good at killing ships relatively quickly. I am currently using cannons with a 180 degree firing arc, and feel my flying skills are good enough for me to go down to dual beam banks with 90 degree firing arcs.
In the past, I've used cannon rapid fire I and III, along with plasma weapons. The proc on the plasma weapons is about 15 seconds, but I find most targets die before 15 seconds, so feels like I'm wasting something.
I was thinking of changing to a weapon with a more useful proc. How about tetryon weapons? Any of you guys like them? If not them, then what do you suggest.
BTW, if I change to beams, I'll retrain for beam array overload I and III and use my torps to increase damage. Thanks!
Oh my gosh, something else that is bugged? Let's change the name to BugTrek Online.
Thanks, I'll look into the disruptors. Haven't thought about them, yet. Any other suggestions?
The dual heavies only have a firing arc of 45 degrees, which is a little narrow for my lumbering ship. Maybe I'll work up to something more maneuverable, but for now I kind of like the slower turn rate. Fits my current abilities.
When I wrote gear I meant things like shields, Deflectors, Engines, and consoles.
Personally I like the Plasma beams/Romulan Hyper-Plasma torp/Rapid Reload Transphasic/Bio-nural torp set up I have on my Mirror Star.
Besides those weapons I have the Romulan Singularity harness 2/3rds of the way installed. This gives me Plasma Conductive Circuitry: +7.6% Plasma Damage , +15.2 Starship Electro-Plasma System.
This is on top of a Nukara Particle Converter (+5 Shield Power Setting, +17.3 Starship Power Insulators, +17.3 Starship Particle Generator, +10% Accuracy with Beam Weapons) and the Mark XI Reman set ( Prototype Plasma Projectile: +15 Starship Particle Generator, Enchances your High Yield Plasma torpedos: Increased Flight Speed, Increased Defense / Covariant Capacitance Cell: When receiving All Energy Damage, 10% chance of applying Covariant Capacitiance Cell, +5% Maximum Shield Capacity for 15 sec (stacks up to 10 times) )
I want to add to this the Adapted Borg Assimilated Module and the Omega Plasma Torpedo which would give me a further (Omega Weapon Amplifier: On hit with any energy weapon, 2.5% chance: to self: Applies Omega Weapon Amplifier: +10 Current Weapon Power , +500 Current Weapon Power Resistance Rating for 3 sec , +500 Maximum Weapon Power Resistance Rating for 3 sec )
If you want to have some Tetryon weapons, get 2/3rds or all of the Nikara Appropriated Munitions set from the Nukara Rep.
If you want Anti-proton, get the Ancient Obelisk set by rerunning Sphere of Influence and maybe a Tachyokinetic Converter. I use the Ancient tech on my Yellowstone, and it does fairly well for a shuttle.
