I know there's quite a bit of debate about this set but the devs have pretty plainly stated that the breen set was made with fighting the breen in mind.
Now you have the set bonus with polaron resist that helps with the beams, but what a lot of people overlook is that resilient shields are better against transphasic than other shields.
Any other shield has 10% bleedthrough which, after some cryptic math works out to 28% bleedthrough fo transphasics. Now a resilient has 5% and after applying the same equations comes to 24% bleedthrough.
So it isn't much but it is an improvement against breen which iirc are the only PvE mobs to use transphasics.
