Tenore’s S14 Intel Dreadnought – Vengeance Class

(Screenshot by tenore#0775)

Hi,

today we have the build from one of our players, @tenore#0775. He set some impressive records with his ship lately. And here is his build and a post he created for you:

Hello everyone,

  • Please note: Build and Article have been updated as of May 23rd, 2018*

S13 and S14 brought about many changes with the space rebalance and also with some of the new traits and starship equipment available to us through the Fleet Colony holding.  I have spent much of these past two season grinding and testing, in ISA, HSE and in solo Elite patrols such as Japori, Carraya and Gamma Eridon...

Hellspawny’s Cannon Avenger

Picture by <a class='bp-suggestions-mention' href='https://www.sto-league.com/members-3/hellspawny/' rel='nofollow'>@Hellspawny</a>

Hello everybody,

there are many reasons not to use cannons on a cruiser. Just think about those “fun” Galaxy X Dreadnaughts with dual heavy cannons and just two tactical bridge officer abilities. But this fun build is different. It’s not the “fun” used to excuse bad builds or poor performance. No, it’s fun in the meaning of shredding NPCs like an angel of death. It’s able to do 110k+ in pug runs and should break the 300k barrier in organized split ISAs. And it really shines in those missions where you take on the enemy head on. Here’s the build:

aeley’s Fleet Ar’kif Cannon build

(Screenshot by @Aeley)

Hi everyone!

My build for the record run:

http://skillplanner.stoacademy.com/a94a614073526074244947d7f81813b1

And my general mission build:

http://skillplanner.stoacademy.com/66ec98cd704d8529cd48a5d4385fbe4e

I didn’t make a lot of changes for the record run.  There are a handful of changes I could make to improve the score further (in theory, at least), although most would require spec changes, and I still mostly use this ship for general missions (for which I like the specs how they are).

I’d like to bring up single cannons.  Pre-rebalance, when I was trying to break 250 with cannons, I came across a ‘critical mass’ with dual cannons/dual heavy cannons, wherein each additional cannon was merely cannibalizing damage from the rest...

Miracle Worker Cruisers

The recently introduced Miracle Worker Cruisers offer some interesting build alternatives. Sadly, the cruisers aren’t available on sto-academy.com yet, so screenshots will do at the moment. So please consider this page as work in progress.

We highly recommend the tactical versions as the current meta favors tactical consoles to boost you weapon damage. It also offers the best starship trait from the bundle.

  1. Standard DPS Cruiser Build

    This is a common beam build. Nothing special and more important slightly worse than i.e. the T6 flagship series which clearly offer the better console set.


  2. Entoiled Technology Build

    The Nausicaan three piece set is really made for this ship. A 5/3 weapon layout similar to the Sheshar would be perfect (see that build here), but 4/4 is still ok.
    T...
