Thermal Builds

Post  Drivyn on Sat Oct 26, 2013 11:22 am

Hey all,

Got this game a week, ago, excellent fun! few questions though-

So I've come to enjoy the playstyle of overheating enemies using Thermal Cannon, are there weapons similar to this one? (is there a list somewhere?)

Been using a fairly simple but effective build surrounding this on the Mercury(Thermal Cannon, Focusing Crystal, Thermal Conductor), but I was hoping to build a similar setup on a slightly slower but more sturdy platform, ideas?

As far as I know most heat stuff are on fighters. Advanced Heat Sink particularly. There are Molten Exhaust Cannon, Combuster, Plasma trail and heat canister there. Then fighter veterancy has that heat aura thing, although with pretty small radius. As other classes, Caster has plasma wave in Mass Emitter and Grappler has plasma torch in Mining Rig. Arsenal probably has ways of laying mines that heat the enemy. Plasma Thruster in Auxiliary Drive maybe heats enemies too.

Sorry it's a bit disorganized. I haven't had much success with thermal builds myself, so I'm just listing all the things I've seen.

Thanks!

I just discovered combuster, which is pretty sweet. Thermal seems to be working well enough but I'm not playing on the hardest difficulties (I usually play sage/archsage). I'm not certain if this style is effective in high level play, however it is certainly entertaining!

For reference, build I'm currently using below:

Mercury

Fixed Cannon:
Mercurial Cannon
Thermal Cannon
Focusing Crystal
Focusing Chamber

Utility:
Avoidance Plating

Shield:
Medium Shield

Power Hub:
Basic Power Hub
Energy Regen Module

Adv Heat Sink:
Basic Heat Sink
Heat Canisters
Weaponized Exhaust Ports
Ventilation System
Thermal Conductor
Combuster

Agile Drive:
Evasion Drive
Astrogami Drive
Kinetic Harness Gyros
Accelatron
Avoidance Gyros
Stellar Wind Funnels

Engine:
Hades Engine

Auxiliary Drives:
Basic Drive
Dampener Optimizer
Afterburner Efficiency Module
Afterburner Cooling Module
4x Overthrust Module

Weapons Bays:
Spare Shield Battery
Spare Shield Stabilizer

Fighter Veterancy:
Ace Drive
(I'm poor)

Corona:
Salvation
Shield Macro

Keep speed high, astro for energy(if overcharging just fire guns) always fire both cannons, combust when off C/D. heat canisters when overheating.

Hm maybe I'll give that a try. Btw if you want slow and sturdier platform you could go with some fighter hybrids, or the D5F Wolf Angel. The D5F is playable single player. It basically has a bit more slots than the Mercury, but bigger and heavier.
