Must be a monster on those unshielded things in STF.
Now, you would think that wouldn't you. Truth be told; that was the original idea when I designed this build, Omega Eng / Shield, Borg Def / Console.
However, a little known fact, the Tetryon Glider is affected by Flow Cap (yes, yes, I know you all know that), but did you know TG is also modified by weapons power, (bet most didn't), Even running 230 FlwC (or what ever I have - at work right now, can't check) TG is something like 23 damage. Considering the trade off I would have to make as the M.A.C.O Shield and Deflector are FAR better individually, and the 5% CDR and 15 Power Insulators is really nice as well.
If I raise my weapon power to 125, its 70 a hit I think, this would be worth it, but 23.... not a chance. I also have MK XII M.A.C.O gear (from my Gal-X) and only MK XI Omega.
It will pull 4k DPS or their abouts in an ESTF, really good for cure with double tractor beam.
