Welcome to Rise of Discovery! This build has been updated with some new traits and gear from recent missions.
My main testing ground for this ship was HSE with a little bit of Korfez thrown in for flavour. The Dranuur Scout Ship performs admirably, playing like a CSV cannon Escort. As a primarily energy DPS’er and cannon user the piloting for this ship came quite easily for me. Avoid staying in place when durability boosts such as DPRM is on cooldown as the hull is quite thin. Use your mobility to position yourself to take advantage of the flanking bonuses on high HP targets. This build receives a 6% CritH boost via the BO boff power which procs the Morphogenic set, a 30% Crit D boost via CRF and also a 22.5% Cat 1 weapon damage boost via TS3 which are very nice boosts to an Exotic build. The Temporal 2 piece provides a 25% DoT boost. The Competitive engine is there for the mobility and added defense. The Gamma Synergistic Deflector is quite heavy on DrainX and ControlX and also provides a -15 Kinetic DRR debuff to targets hit by your torpedoes. Recursive Shearing is taken to boost DPS when engaging high HP single targets but its reliant on the rest of the team to provide DPS to take full advantage.
This build is agile and sufficiently durable with a bit of trait tweaking but has a high DPS ceiling. My current HSE exotic torp record is 313k, a full 25k higher than my previous record using the Son’a Science Collector Dreadnought. I will continue to test and refine this build and concept, thanks very much for your interest and happy DPS’ing!
