Ah my fleet mate, I have been using space fleet gear for quite some time on my Fed:Tac. I have spent over a half a million FC's on gear testing on my FPE for PVE/Fleets and I like them together much better than any set so far with the exception of the Omega space set when used with the tetryons even though it is a bit squishy, the set procs are nice. I only wish we were online ATM so I could give specifics on which pieces I have.

I have tested the space fleet gear vs. STF/Aegis sets using the log parser on every single mission I run and I get better performance (dps and survivability/healing) with fleet gear. I have also tested fleet AP space weapons ([Acc] and [CrtH] varieties) and get much better dps than the [borg]MkXII with the Fleet AP [Acc] in both STFs and Fleet runs.

Results could be different for all of us I guess depending on character traits/skills/powers we run with but as for me, the fleet gear purchased was well worth the cost with one caveat and irritation: with all the dilithium and FCs invested in fleet gear, you'd think there would be unique visuals but there isn't. I would hope this changes but I am not optimistic.

See ya on Starbase Eden!
