What, out of the three energy weapons, should I chose? The new cannon has a constant damage output even while the ships are in phase (I hope), but less damage output. The Nova had an instant damage output, splits into five other parts, but you can't do damage to the Trojan while it's in phase. The Havoc fires the second the Trojan comes out of phase, and it has moderate damage between the two. I have both Nova I and II, but maybe another preference for when I get the bastion cruiser...

    Personally, I’d choose either the new one or Echo cannons. The new one pierces and does a solid chunk of damage, plus DoT boosts. Echo cannons are good vs the new cruisers, since they have no chain resist. Suffers a little versus Umbra though

    Havoc only seems good on the Manticore from what I’ve seen, and Nova is just...forgettable.

    Against what? Currently bastions are the best against trojans in pve.
    Also trojan has very heavy equipment and is far from bastion in the ability to fill all it's slots by the best gear.

    It's important to note that ALL weapons on the Trojan will deal DoT. The Tera Cannon just deals extra DoT. That being said, it's accuracy is about as bad the Havoc Cannon.
    Please, if you are going to reply to my posts, do not make the mistake of attacking me personally instead of my arguments. By the same token, do
    not take anything I reply as an attack on you personally. I bear no ill will towards anyone.

    Due to the spread and projectile speed, the Tera cannon isn't really a long range weapon for cruisers with range specials. Its excellent on medium to short range though. Considering its damage bonus to Battlecruisers the Trojan cruiser intended role would indeed seem to be more close and personal.

    Right, look at those calamitous fleets. All manticores and slow ogres. This is what trojans should feed on. And instead of using capacitors, better use routers. Maxed commander Burr helps here too.
