Build testing

Build testing. Best place is Starbase 234 in the Beta Quadrant.

In any scientific test, you need certain parameters that remain the same, a benchmark. DPS testing for ships in ISA is full of dependent variables, your DPS will vary depending on who else is on the team, their team buffs, target debuffs and so on.

At SB 234 it's just you and the starbase. Now of course in STO there are always random factors to factor in, the RNG will sometimes cause your weapons to deal more damage on one run than another, or the starbase to wack you harder on one run then another and sadly Cryptic have not supplied us with a "Target Dummy" as in other MMOs such as Elder Scrolls, so you can never get a clear picture from one run.

However, if you average out your runs you will see a pattern.

The correct way to perform the test is as follows.

Enter the system but don't start it immediately. Go to around 4 km from the back of the starbase, the distance is not critical but it should be the same on each run.

Prepare your ship, threat on, RSP up for example, then start. When the starbase or your ship is destroyed then analyze your parse and exit. If you finish the event then you will have to wait 30 min for another go, so better to concentrate only on the starbase.

The above should be done on Advanced difficulty, normal is over too fast and doesn't give time for several cycles of abilities, elite is too difficult for some ships and you will die very quickly.

Make a few runs, then make changes to your build, suggest one change at a time, run it again, check to see if your DPS/Survivability has improved or reduced, then draw your conclusions.

It takes a long time and many tests before you will learn what works for your build, but in my opinion, this is the best test in the game. The foundry missions for this are also ok but introduce multiple enemies which may interact with each other adding more variables into the result.
