could do with advice
 
Firstly I bought a escort refit and i have gotten weapons etc sorted but the shields just don't cut it so.. . Advice please

Also I want to farm easy but the constant same old same old is frying my brain lol. . .

When the enemy is dumping on you, shield capacity is what keeps your hull intact. The bigger the shield volume, the better.

The downside is it takes longer for big shields to fully restore. You will be running around with 3/4 shields a lot more often. Uncharged shields dont help you with part A above. You can overcome this by increasing regeneration rate. Try to find a Positron Deflector with [Em] and [ShdS] values, they will improve your shield performance a bit. The Aegis deflector is better if you can do it, and the Omega rewards are better still.

As for farming. . .yeah, you'll have to get used to the repetition. Farming is the same in almost every MMO: It's dull.

big questions with your build so far, what shields do you have? your toon's class, and what bridge officer powers are you running?

I always used high capacity shields but was recently pointed towards lower capacity highly regenerative ones. It's working great for me in eSTFs. They usually re-build by themselves but I can hit TSS2 and an aux battery in combat if I'm stuck. If I'm in real trouble, I will will run and repair. The repair is so quick I am back in no time, which wasn't the case when I used the MACO.

I would recommend the Assimilated or Omega Shield. Which you go for will mainly depend on set bonuses.

You can get a regenerative Shield Mk XII [Cap][Pla][Reg] for about 500K EC on the exchange which will let you experiment as it gives most of the benefits of the above shields without spending DL or marks.

assuming you dont have access to fleet or rep gear

pve you want regen shields( either regenerative cap reg pla or normal cap reg pla)

pvp you want normal capx2 reg or covariant capx2 reg

you want hyper engines either turnx2 or aux spd turn

and a deflector that boosts shields

tac slots
2 tac team 1 - apB thy2 & 2 crf (replace thy with apO if all cannons)
eng slot
run eng team & rsf or eptS & rsf
sci slot
either 2x haz emitters or haz emitters & tss

personally i would only buy the refit for the console then get a mirror advanced(basically a patrol escort) from the exchange

or do you mean a one of the retrofits?

What about the science console Field Generator? Expensive sure, but worth it. A royal rumble or 4 then you will have enough EC to buy one.

I'll post everything I'm running when get the chance 2 sign into game again, I do have all set up suited for me it's just the fact I can not last long with direct hits and its driving me nuts as I feel like I'm always running or dying lol
