advise on shield tanking neb retro
so for the longest time i've been using the aegis set for PvP runs but i have heard that a mix of borg and aegis works better. just wanted to know if this is true.

my build:
Full aegis

fore: 2x MkXI phaser beam array, 1x MkXI quantum torp
Aft: 2x MkXI phaser beam array, 1x MkXI quantum torp

engineering: ative hul armor, field gen, shield emitter amp
science: countermeasure system, power insulatorm, particle gen, tachyon detection grid
tactical: borg console, enhanced plasma manifold

Lt. universal: EPtA1, EPtS2
Lt. tac: torp spread 1, fire at will 2
Lt. command engineering: EPtS1, EPtA2, APtSIF2
CO. sci: hazard emitters1, polarize hull2, tractor beam repulsors2, grav well2
Ensign Sci: TSS1

so far this setup is working for me but any advise on making it better for tanking is great too.

My recommendation:

shields: something with 2 or more resists on it (regen or resilient)

beam array boat (to allow tree focus on energy + engineering + sci)

engineering: different hull resists
science: anything really, good place for universal consoles
tactical: weps for weps

Lt. universal: EPtA1, RSP1
Lt. tac: FAW1, APD
Lt. command engineering: EPtAux or EPtW, AuxrSif1 or RSP, EPtS3 (try to have always on unless using another EPtAbility)
CO. sci: hazard emitters1, TSS2, tractor beam repulsors2, grav well2, or FBP (in this case do you want more healing or offensive? sci team somewhere
Ensign Sci: polarize hull 1

I hope this helps you some.

what would be the best set for tanking? aegis/borg or a mix of the two? but thanks for the help!

borg set prolly since it caters more to sensors and whatnot
