Space Sets (Questions)
 
I'm currently flying a Defiant Retrofit (Tier 5) using a full Omega MK 12 set.
Before Season 7 i would use half Omega and half Borg set due to the Console being part of the set. I actually relied on the healing proc it gave me. Now with the proc not available (unless ditching the Omega Set), i'd like to know if the full Omega set is even worth it.
Should i use it with the M.A.C.O. shield instead (i still like the Tetryon Glider set bonus since i specced into Flow Capacitors)? Or should i be switching to another set entirely?

P.S.: Is it possible to aquire the Honor Guard set (as a FED) through the reputation system now?

P.P.S.: If anyone could share any information regarding the new Romulan set, that would also be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I am having to deal with this problem now, I have the Borg set, and the MACO shield. I liked that set on my Atrox because I could tank anything. Now I am wondering what to get instead. And the Honor Guard stuff would be interesting. Guess I am not really helpful, just agreeing.

i dont know excatly what to tell you cause the closest thing we have to a dps set is omega space set,(2nd borg set 2 pc boosts tet glider as well)but omega is also sci heavy too. maco and KHG sets are both tanking sets,as is the borg set.

it is possible to get mk12 KHG set as a fed but first u have to get mk12 maco set and then turn it in when you go to get the KHG set as on fed side it is called the adapted maco space set.

no word on 2nd rommie eng,def,shld set but the rommie dual weapon+console set is for plasma weapons lovers.

MACO Shield (by far the best option available)
1. KHG (adapted) Engine + Deflector = +DPS (+Aux and +Torpedo Damage, +Efficiency & Hot Restart Engine)
2. Omega Engine + Deflector = +DPS (Tet Glider Shield Drains, Optimum Engine output at >50 power)
3. Aegis Engine + Deflector = +Survivablity (+10% Defence, +5 Shield & Optimum Engine at >50 power)
4. Borg Engine + Deflector = +Survivability (+Hull Heal Proc, +5 Aux, +5 Engine)

Okay, then the M.A.C.O. Shield it will be (good that i got the MK 12 variant before Season 7)

My Tactical Escort Retrofit (now a Fleet Tactical Escort Retrofit) runs MACO shields and deflector dish. For engines, I run the Advanced Fleet Hyper-Impulse Engines [turn]x3 [spd].

Same speed as the MK XII Omega Engines, but better turn rate. Also, they have the Lesser Asyncronous Warp Field (a weaker version of the MACO engines).

I run the FULL Mk XII M.A.C.O. set on my vesta to great effect... since I shield tank it wrks better for me than the 2 piece borg and maco shields
