A tactical escort with the two T4 shield heals and a regular EPtS/TSS/TT escort setup was able to tank the damage of a tactical Jem'hadar ship while standing still. With only TT and shield redistribution in addition to the procs one can almost tank a tactical DPS cruiser.
And of course Cryptic took precautions: Neither of the two heals show up in the combat log as to avoid hard numbers being posted to show just how bad the situation is.
Thanks for the video. I recall Borticus saying that all of the T4 abilities had an immunity timer. I guess that's not the case for the placate proc.
As for the Romulan T4 ability, I didn't think the 10% heal was that big a deal. I would think the ~1k shield regen every 6 seconds would be the bigger issue.
Guess I'll wait before choosing an ability to see if there's a balance check given to those abilities.
