If there are any questions, feel free to ask us here or ingame!
As for all builds, the skilltree/ship build works for all professions and factions!
Should I go with locators or exloiters with the sci ult?
i would go with locator consoles, since sci ulti is just 1/3 of the time active 🙂
thx ill try it
With respect to the Sci build, the use of a console slot for the quantum phase convertor which gives +25% to phasers, and then wasting that by using disruptors and disruptor induction coils is inefficient. This should be a phaser build.
Sure you could use normal phasers too, its just a suggestion 🙂
But basically the dmg bonus from the quantum phase console and from the disruptor induction coils is equal. the quantum phase console should have some drainx too to boost your plasmonic leech and some aux power. thats way more important than a bit of base phaser dmg as a bonus and this builds is a discount build, so we used mainly free available stuff 🙂
Just a quick note on a budget phaser build
-You can obtain very rare phaser relays from the new Sign and Portents mission
-There’s not a source for free very rare phaser beam arrays, so you would need to purchase from the exchange, or settle for the Rare Phaser Beam Array (CritDx2) or (Dmgx2) available on replay of the Everything Old is New mission
Yes, the quantum phase convertor + phaser relays is a better boost than distruptor induction coils alone.
And as for budget phasers, correct, I don’t know of any free very rare phasers. Whenever I do the mission, though, I get [CritH] [Dmg], never [Dmg]x2. Regardless, even with only rare phasers you’re still ahead.
Of course, it could also be noted that any budget build right now can certainly profit from the free Omega currently available.
But Disruptor Weapons are better than Phaser Weapons because of the Damageresistance Debuff from Dsiruptors. And after reaching T4 of the Terran Reputation you will definitly use the Terran Task Force Disruptor Beam Array. That is by far the best Beam Array (and Dual Heavy Cannon) in the game. So upgrading Phaser Beams at that point might be worse for the future.
“Cheap” base Weapons would be Advanced Fleet Weapons with crtd+dmgx3 from your Fleet Starbase.
There is a nice disrupter nausicaan set now too.
It’s a very good set for PvP. I would not use it in PvE.
But beam and console could be a choice on a budget build.
Is the Quantum phase set preferred over the iconian set on a sci build in PVE? I have both sets on one of my sci toons but had the iconian set upgraded.
I’d still use the iconian. The set bonus is superior by far. And the quantum set just offers a little bit more drain expertise.
BTW, you can Mk II Coalition disruptors on the exchange cheap and upgrade them, not cheap to upgrade to MK XIV but its a afordable with some grinding.
I’d buy very rare Mk IV. One less random mod.
I always wondered if particle feedback loop is worth a try – i gets you +150 hull penetration skill at best – but none of your builds have it slotted
so do you think its a good or rather average starship trait?
Not worth it. +150 hull penetration skill is 15% armor penetration and its not really worth it to sacrifice one of your shipslots for that. there are way better choices.
I assume this build can transfer over to the new T6 vestas?
yes, that is correct 🙂
The different build types are always quite equal for all ships 🙂
When I click on the links, it only goes to my build page. It does not show your build(s). 🙁
You just need to click on the left side on the Starship etc to see it, or at least thats how its working for me. It could be a little bit confusing at first because the start page seems to be yours 🙂
