I am not a math genius and I don't know the damage formulas so I thought I would ask here.

I currently have AP DBBs and Omni-Directionals and my Tactical Escort, I was thinking about making the move to AP DHCs and Turrets. The problem is it would mean a giant investment in EC and Dilithium to obtain the weapons and upgrading them so before I get started I wanted to ask here.

The DHCs do offer a bump in raw dps and an innate crit damage bonus but they do drop to a 45 firing arc from 90. The turrets have a 39 drop in dps vs the beam arrays but do offer a wider choice of modifiers.

I guess it boils down to would switching offer enough of an improvment to justify the cost of switching?

Thanks,
GG
