So you think the guy who runs the TrekBBS Armada fleet is going to spam you?

Crafting


Looking to get some dual heavy phaser cannons (very rare), is this enough for pair or do i need to collect more? Or should i do some crafting just to test my skills first, I've done few plans as you can see, and also got few plans from vault mission. How many more particles should i collect and are there specific particles i should be looking for, and where' i'd find these?

as ever thanx for good comments.

Nope.

BTW, in 30 seconds of research on your forum posts I had your date of birth. Email addresses are pretty innocuous things to try to hide.

i'm a member of the fleet and have played with timelord on many occasion if it helps i can vouch he wont spam the crap out of you. he's a pretty decent guy (and can spell better then me )

Re: Star Trek: Online

And one screen shot from tactical game between Timelord and I

Now if you figure all these buttons and icons, in the midst of the battle, u are doing brilliantly.



Edit:

My current setup, any comments regarding consoles, weapon fit, bare in mind I'll take your advice just it might take time to get all the necessary stuff, funds are short atm, I have only 575000 credits, and I am doing all my missions to gain some emblems and more credits.

just the game, that is all, game updates itself every time you log on.

You can see the numbers and types of anomalies you need for what you want to craft at any time; select Research & Development from the in-game drop-down menu on the right-hand side of the screen. As for where to find specific ones, I suggest using STO Wiki.

No, you would only need to download the game client from the main website.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Secrets to "figuring out the buttons".

First, bring up bar 5 or 6, drag all your weapons onto it, mark them all to autofire (or all except one forward-facing torpedo, optionally), and then never look at that bar again.

Next, put all the things that have short cooldowns and that you use multiple times in every fight on the main bar. Put all the things that have long cooldowns and that you only fire off at the beginning of a fight, or the beginning of a big fight, on the top bar. Put everything else in the middle.

Organize them so that the stuff you use the most is on the left, and the stuff you use the least on the right; that way you can easily hit 1-4 on the top numbers on your keyboard with losing your hand position totally.

I also bind "`" to "equalize shields", so I can hit it quickly. You want that and "1" to be bound to the two things that you need to hit without having to hunt. For some people that's a front-firing torpedo, to take advantage of down shields; for others it's mines, to be dropped when the enemy is in a position where he can't miss them. For others, it's some kind of defensive measure.

If have the same power from more than one boff slot, I put the most powerful one on the bottom bar, the second above it, and the third above that; so I always know where to look for one. I do this with my shield heal.

Do you still have emblems because if you do you can buy some from the vendor in the center of ESD.

yeah I have 20+ maybe i can afford to buy one dual cannon from that vendor, but i kind of thinking i might do some crafting and make my own and sell any excess, I think there' big industry out there you can make rare items and sell them at the exchange (at cut price - 50-55% of exchange asking price)

Re: Star Trek: Online

After many months of playing, experimenting, PVP, etc, i've honed my setup - i'm pretty happy with it. I COULD get the Mk XI Purple Phaser Turrets via emblems but the time it would take to get 90 emblems is pointless - the Mk XI's don't give much of a dmg bonus anyways.

nice setup, how about your consoles?

can you explain your choices of consoles why you went for particular engineering and science consoles? cheers

Re: Star Trek: Online

Qew: Is that the Aegis set you have equipped? I'm currently working on getting my VA Tac (also flying a Defiant Refit) up to full crafting so I can get those items. Also aiming to replace most of my current ship setup once I'm fully maxed on crafting, but that's going to take a while because I didn't make this character a crafter when I was first playing the game.

You've also got a console in your second Science slot and a device in your first slot I don't recognize, which isn't much of a surprise to me since I recently returned to the game after leaving right at the beginning of the Breen FE. The Science console I assume is the Universal Borg one, but I don't have a guess on the device.

Since we've started sharing ship builds, here's my current WIP:

I've considered using turrets in the aft spots instead of the beam arrays, but I prefer having a wider range of aft fire protection compared to turrets.

(Limited ship slots in that picture because I was on the bridge of my Runabout.)
