    Question about starship build

    Post by Mountainman1701 on Mon Dec 09, 2013 10:35 pm

    So, I am setting up my tac escort to fill the standard dps role for pve (stf's in particular). Right now my fore weapons are two voth dual heavy cannons, one antiproton dual beam bank, and a quantum torpedo launcher. For aft I have the 360 degree antiproton bank, an antiproton beam array, and another quantum torpedo launcher. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Indeed Voth are anti proton. Which is why I never bothered with the 360 array reward, would have to completely redo my builds.


    Your build sounds good to me. I'm not an expert on ship builds, but sounds like it can punch forward and backward.


    A common setup I've seen being stated as the best for escorts is to have 3 cannons up front with 1 torpedo to pack a punch, and all 360 degree turrets on the back. It's the setup I use for my defiant and works pretty well, though the DHC can be a bit troublesome to get in the arc. And it does mean you have to keep pointing forward to get your main weapons firing. Yours is a nice balance to hit it on the approach and keep the pressure up when you are moving away.


    Don't forget to add some tac consoles. Some antiproton consoles would be good, and a Quantum zero point module (or whatever it's called, I forget it's name but it's the one that enhances quantum torpedo damage) can inflict some serious hull damage if it strikes the naked hull, if you can find a mkXII. Even better if you have the space for 2 of them.

    if you do 3 cannons though a Bo skill to up grade cannons just dose one and the others are normal i think it better like you have 2 cannons 1 dual beam and a trop

    the fleet rcs one you can add hp since escorts lack there, or even an rcs that gives damage resist as well as the turn bonus. Wink

    I would like to thank everyone for the helpful advice! (Now I just have to get some dilithium for those fleet consoles Smile ) I am looking to replace my rear anti-proton array with the omega force kinetic module, that way I will have two beam array equivalents with a 360 targeting arc. That, plus upgrading my tac consoles from mk X to XII should be all. Thanks again!

    No, I meant is the mining at our fleet mine done with the same minigame as the one the ferengi gives out, or is it something completely new?
