Well I love my Kumari. Tooled to the nines with heavy disruptor cannons, quad phaser cannons, wing cannons, and quantum torps fore, disruptor turret, quantum torp aft, fast maneuverable engines and the fabulous klingon ship teleporter to prevent people getting on my tail. This thing is a powerhouse and I think Cryptic did a great job, especially since fixing the shield bug. Nice work guys.
I think it's about time the Andorians got some credit since they are one of the founders of the Federation
Yay.. Another VA ship released in three parts.. Especially when I don't have money..
futher look and thought ok i can see it being useful but at this time im still gona hold out for my armitage fleet version
ROM SHIPS ROM SHIPS ROM SHIPS EVERYONE NOW ROM SHIPS ROM SHIPS:)
Worst $50 I have ever spent, it is a pretty set of ships but not worth the money and all they hype they have been getting.
The Kumari winged cannons are bugged/flawed because when you deploy them they only fire if your ship's front faces the target. These winged cannons can be destroyed so you have to keep redeploying them and in my opinion are better left undeployed/attached to your ship.
I expected Kumari winged cannons to shoot regardless of the direction the these escorts are facing like little fighters or orbiting gun turrets as the two weapon slots in the rear of these escorts makes very weak.
Also when you buy the 3 pack you get a console with each ship that forms a set that can augment the Kumari winged cannons, since these cannons are bugged you pretty much waste 3 console slots on your ship weakening the ship.
So because of these flawed weapons and worthless consoles I would not recommend buying these Andorian escorts.
lol :) Did you bother to read the specs. from the blog? It clearly stated that the cannon platforms share abilities with the wing cannons and fire when you fire the wing cannons. I wish people would go through the specs in detail before complaining.
you sir are a moron. first of all they are cannons... not turrets. second of all they are connons... not turrets.
Dont like escorts personally i only fly cruisers and carriers on my va,s but nice job on these i do like the looks of them.
Its like a Zoolander calender that picture, every look is the same, are they different in looks to any significant degree?
I have the Vulcan Science ship, now I need to get these ships, and if and when they release Tellarite ships I'll get them.
Ooh, having a full set of Coalition ships would be GREAT.
Now that the bugs are getting fixed, I'll deffy look into getting these next month. :) Not sure what I'm gonna do with the back two slots, but that's all part of the fun.
I think the bugs are fixed
Where can we get extra andorian phaser/canon weapons?
Dilithium Store - Special Items and Boxes under your minimap
Can anyone say "Breen Chel Grett With a slight make over", it's a copy and paste ship with damaged enhanced weapons and consoles that aren't worth a carp. Yawn. . Waiting until the day they come out with something of real power house for the game, Cruiser or Escort. A retrofit Dreadnought would be a better bet, or more decks for the interiors of most box ships, lobi ships or store bought ships.
How do you relate this to the Chel Grett? I can't find any single thing they have in common.
i already said something a long time ago about adding more decks to ships like last year i believe, the entire community yelled at me for it and the developers made a fuss saying it would be too much work so don't expect there to be more decks on ships, even if you fly a Miranda Class Frigate
I might get that ship some day but decided to keep upgrading my Temporal Destroyer. Wish the Andorian weapons where XII or had Fleet versions.
The weapons may be mark XI Very Rare and not XII Very Rare but they do more damage than my Borg Mark XII Very Rare Antiproton Dual Heavy Cannons!!!
Holy cow $50
Cheaper than a lock box ship. You can get one of them murder ball's for 25$ :D
I want this spaceship for my favorite stuff!
Since when is it news that escorts are weak if you can get behind them? I mean, that's pretty much the whole idea behind escorts: they're quick and maneuverable and all their firepower is fore. If you wanted a ship that was evenly defended all the way around, you'd choose a cruiser; or at least a science vessel.
I have to wait until the first to try these ships out, but I'm sure they're worth the wait!
I love how some people think putting low power turret on the back of escorts will some how keep me for exploiting the lack of firepower back there.
you know you would think that the devs would get it right for once after numerous forum postings from players who advise the devs on the suppose [ holy grail ] perfect ship we all want they still continue to put out ships that really makes me just sasy huh ? o..0 its deliberate i see now that they will continue to put out ships with none of the improvements we would love to see in our ships ,,i love STO but for once i would like to see the devs really listen to us the PLAYERS! and not some gm or dev that spends a few minutes or more on the game thinking he knows best in what changes or improvements to make in this game . [ why dont you devs just pay attention to the STO vets and all players who can give you first hand experience of what needs to be done in this game ? good or bad i love my ships its a awesome game and i do see so much room for improvements on all levels,[ if of course you guys the DEVS and CREATORS ] would for once listen to us lol, i just dont know if i want these andorion escorts after reading such dismal reviews from players who now own them and are smashing thier heads against the keyboard regretting buying them,[ sighs ] i love STO its a love hate relationship i can only hope that one day you devs listen to us and get it right ! ,[please excuse typos ] wanted to mess up like the devs do all the time lol :)
The unfortunate thing is they are not going to listen, they are going to build the game the way they see fit. Giving a player something of an "Awsome" factor just doesn't tie into thier idea of how the game works. You can want in one hand and shit in the other and see which one comes out first.
The fix for the shields will be in tomorrow saw the post already.
Whats the best setup on a defiant?
Don't know if its the best buts it's effective. I use 3 DHCs and 1 Photon FWD, 3 Cannons aft with my boff skills as CMDR: TT, CRF, CRF, APO; LT CMDR: TT, THY, APO; ENS: THY; LT EPtS, EPtS; LT HE, HE.
Then run everything on a spacebar keybind (I use a custom one that puts the 7 and 6 bar on the spacebar). For PVE change the CRF to CSV, and THY to TS.
1st Place in SB24 and Gorn Minefield are very easy with this build.
There is no "Best" setup. However, if you want some good builds, check STOAcademy and the Ausmonauts forums.
to tlamstrike: If you have to put your abilities on the spacebar to make it easier for you, you are a noob, and not worthy of respect. How can you respect someone who cannot bother to make the effort of playing the game, who instead presses 1 button to make everything happen for him. Pittiful.
This ship is terribly bugged right now. The cannon abilities lock you out of using your regular abilities like rapid fire and scatter volley. The shield and hull heals are not working as intended either. DO NOT BUY THIS SHIP until it is fixed. Many people on the forums are already asking for refunds. I repeat, DO NOT BUY THIS SHIP.
Patch notes are up, the server is coming down to fix this in 6 hours. Chill out.
The shield modifier is actually 0.65. All heals are dramatically lower. All heals, including engineering heals and science heals, heal for only 33% of what other ships heal for. :(

Another fine job from Cryptics QA Department
Shield Mod oops forgot that
