Full Version: Help me pick a new ship (2 options)

Recently I was lucky enough to have gotten a Jem'Hadar Heavy Escort Carrier and Xindi-Aquatic Narcine Dreadnought Carrier.

I think the Jem'Hadar ship is cool because of the options for dual heavy cannons, however, I hear a lot of people argue that beam boats do more damage in PvE. I am looking to do the most damage as possible in (STFs) as a Tac Rom.

Any opinions or help from personal experience is much appreciated.

Also regardless if I go Dual Heavy or Beam Arrays I see a lot of people dropping torps for pure cannon or beam builds, is this viable?

Edit: Why I am asking what is better is because I plan on selling the other...
Beams do more damage because you can broadside with BFAW and get more time on target overall. Cannons in a carrier is not a great idea due to the poor turn rates

Either of these is a superbly viable ship so go with what you like. The default pets for the Xindi ship are probably better.

I am pretty sure there are some builds for each posted in the Skill Planner section. If you need a guide I can post one of mine from a Jem Dread.

Please do! thank you
Something like this build of mine would work pretty closely on a JHEC as well, although I use a JHDC here.
