The Tholian Recluse is a very versatile ship, because of it’s cmdr. universell. So it can make some nice DPS on it’s own or assist the team as a supporting debuffer.
Also the pets of the Recluse are very usefull. They come with Attack Pattern Beta, therefore you’ll have always debuffed enemys.
We are offering you two Build suggestions, one for DPS and one to support your team:
The Support-Recluse should be used on a federation science captain. Federation is better for that, because fed-captains have access to the Pathfinder-Trait “Ablative Field Projector”.
The Sensor Scan of science captains is a good AoE-debuff, that’s the reason why a science is a better captain for the Support-Recluse than a tactical or an engineer.
If the supported player is using Disruptor weapons, “Coalition Disruptors” should be used on the support-recluse.
Since i’m going to set again my Kron on the Recluse to support some runs and the links here are not up to date, i would like to see the skill tree of the 2nd build to compare it with my internal one. Let me know guys, cya o/
Should be added 🙂
greetings, is there a updated version of suport build? or is it same?
more or less the same. you could add 1 copy of a2b with 3 technicians to apply cold hearted to the enemies too 🙂
we’ve added our tarantula support build too in the tarantula post:)
Thnx Felisean, ill take a look at it now 🙂
what would be the best ship for support beside the Tholian Ships?
a ship with intel (as high as possible to slot ionic turbulence + oss) and gravity well + at least ltcm tac (to slot at least faw1, tacteam 1, delta 1, beta 2 and if there is more room focused assault 1)
Thx, Why Intel and Pilot on Support Build?
We tried that in our Fleet, pretty nice, but we use Temporal and Stretagy.
Later i noticed your Build shows up with Intel and Pilot.
Why is that better for Support Build?
I guess it was a left over from the past 😉
right now we use intel as primary (for intel fleet) and miracle worker secondary for the crit chance with heals.
in addition, we use one copy of a2b+coldhearted to get a more constant debuff on all the targets. main thing there is that you should NOT!! use a2b directly b4 you’re going to use your gravity well and hazard emitter, just bc they dont work well without aux 😉
i guess i’ve added those changes to the support build 😉
DPS’ers may want to run Controlled Counter Measures for Space Reputation while recluse is A2B with Cold Hearted. Tier 6 gives 7.5% Bonus Energy and Projectile Damage against controlled targets.
what’s a good modifier for the RCS accelerator and Plasma-Generating Weapon Signature Nullifier for a support class since GravGen modifier does not exist? I’m assuming EPG?
controlx is what you want there, to improve the gravity well 🙂
