Is the Aegis set still relevant?

Personally, I'd still run it anyway since I'm a fan of it. It is still a decent set, just not top of the line with all the extra bonuses the STF gear gets.
This brings again something to mind that I've been thinking about for a while. Honestly, I'm getting good enough that Elite STfs are no longer that great of a challenge if there's a good team who knows how to run them. And regular story content is certainly not that difficult. I'm thinking of using the Aegis set (or some other "not-quite-top-of-the-line" set) to use in regular story missions or fleet missions to give myself a little more of a challenge, and save the top gear for Elite STFs and PVP. I don't know, I thought it made pretty good sense.
