Why? and how? :) help with my build pls :) - Cannix - 01-11-2016

Hi sto academy community,

maybe you can help me Smile

why is this build 100k dps. USS Boxer 100k dps Build
and this build 18k DPS only?  just because iam an engineer?
ok i accept that iam an engineer and my dps is not that high like a tactical.
but 85k difference? =D

wheres my fail? thx for some tips Smile

The 100k build has Pen modifiers on its Phaser Beam Arrays, which add Armor Pentration and thusly increasing the damage output. It also uses the Iconian Set which focuses on Damage ouput. Then there are the two Plasma-generation Weapon Signature Nullifier Science Consoles which add a Plasma explosion to your weapons. The 100k build also uses the Bio-Neural Infusion Circuits which increase the Critical Severity, thereby making Critical Hits more serious.

Then there are the two copies of Override Subsystem Safeties. Which temporarily increase your power levels. The Warp Core has the AMP modifier, so every Subsystem with Power levels above 75 adds 3.3% damage.

I haven't taken a closer look on your Personal and Starship Traits yet, but I think there is something to improve as well. Personally, I hope that sf911 will comment on this as it is his 100k build. Wink

Yep its the Pen modifiers i'm afraid, combined with the plasma explosion embassy consoles. We also don't know the doffs you're running.

FYI @sf911, the Uss Boxer Pilot, is one of the best DPSers in the game, with a huge amount of knowledge and piloting experience, so don't worry, if you're a long way off 100k Wink

Piloting, syncing your abilities well with your team, and all the exact gear used by Florian would get you to the same result. You can earn the gear (although it takes a lot of work) but you'd still need to fly with a coordinated team, and understand how best to pilot for maximal damage (flanking and distance to target being a large part of that), in order to make that goal.

So pen modifier with consoles is 85k dps? thats nice ^^. 
Dont get me wrong. Its just hard to understand the big difference. Would i have been at 50k dps, i wouldnt mind ^^. But 5 times more dps. pheewww. So 15-18k is realy bad dps right? there was a mistake in my build iam not running a torp launcher. i can post the doffs later, pretty standard. Tactical team cd reduce, crit h crit d doffs (delta pack) etc.


@TacPaddy iam also running fleet core with amp modifier. Smile

so any tips to improve my "gear"?

where is the best spot to test dps?
where do you normaly do it?
i tried starbase 234 "single" target. 14k dps.
