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.
