    What you use depends on the Class and the role you want to use, for and Engineer it would open up Doff Slots to create more agro.

    So I was experimenting a bit with the Galaxy Tank so this was in ISE, and she did well.

    She tanked 91% of the Attacks and 88% of the Damage.

    Wow, that's impressive! Was your setup similar to the Tactical build you've got on the forums at the moment? I'm currently
    upgrading some items on my Tactical alt atm and I'm finding she definitely hits a lot harder compared to my Engineer main.

    Another very good ISE Tanking Test

    unknown

    Looks like I have to change my opinion, the Galaxy Class can be a good Tank in ISE where you need it but is less effective in ISA.

    I am looking forward to test her is HSE.

    Even better! Awesome, some positive news in regards tot he Galaxy class, which I'm pretty chuffed about. I'm assuming this is your Tactical character? Im intigued to see a build if you have one, however if its the same as the one you have on the forums then thats all good.

    I must admit, I've been looking over the new Ross variant skin recently and I have to admit, the saucer, pylons, neck and nacelles will look pretty awesome with the Andromeda secondary hull. I'm looking forward to seeing what she looks like, and I may even consider making a 2411 build using that skin. I have a feeling that some of the new traits coming with the bundle on Thursday will actually make this beauty sing a little better!

    oooh really? Im now intrigued even more. I look forward to it very much! Wink

    Also, its only a slight improvement, but the Legendary Galaxy class has slightly better hull modifier, so may help out a little more when its finally released. Definitely something to brighten my day at least.

    So, after nearly 4 hours of transferring all gear and boff seats from the new bundle over to my two main characters (one engineer one tactical), I'm actually ready to start doing some tests with the new Legend Galaxy class.

    I plan to max out all the mastery over the weekend so I can try out some of these new traits, specifically the new Defiant trait, as I plan to go down the Beam Overload route with her.

    I must admit I'm really looking forward to see if there will be any trait replacements being made with the new ones we've recently got with the bundle. I'm also really surprised on how awesome looking the Ross class variant is. I thought I was going to change the secondary hull, but its grown on me really quickly. Must be the Soveriegn hull material on her.

    We shall see, but I'm rather hopefully that a few of the new traits "could" make up for the slightly disappointing Boff seating of the new Legendary Galaxy.
