Pre S7, you might have been looking at the following:

Base +2.5%
Borg +0.92%
Tachyokinetic +0.76%
Projectile Specialization +2%
Max of ~3.57% from Accuracy Overflow

So you were looking at +6.18% to +9.75% CrtH or so...

S7 bumped that with:

Rom Passive +3% CrtH
Zero-Point Console +1.8% CrtH
Rom BOFFs +2-6% CrtH

Taking you to +10.98% to +16.98% CrtH or more...

That's for a weapon with no inherent CrtH mods.

And...that's just the CrtH side of things. What about CrtD? Again, no inherent CrtD mod.

Pre S7, you might have been looking at the following:

Base +50%
Borg +9.2%
Tachyokinetic +7.6%
Projectile Specialization +25%
Max of ~14.3% from Accuracy Overflow

So you were looking at +91.8% to +106.1% CrtD or so...

S7 bumped that with:

Rom BOFFs +5-15% CrtD

Taking you to +91.8% to +121.1% CrtD or more...

So in review, sort of, so to speak...

Pre-S7: +6.18% to +9.75% CrtH and +91.8% to +106.1% CrtD or more
Post-S7: +10.98% to +16.98% CrtH and +91.8% to +121.1% CrtD or more

Course, there's also going to be the +30 Weapons Training that will somewhat minutely boost base damage that changed with S7.

Oh yeah, that wasn't taking into account any abilities. Don't forget to add your APA, TacFleet (Accuracy Overflow), etc to it...

But there's also the other side that can't be forgotten...

The proliferation of Elite Fleet Shields.
The proliferation of Fed Elite Weapons with a shield heal proc.
The addition of the Enhanced Shield Systems passive.
The addition of the Emergency Secondary Shielding passive.
The addition of the Quantum Singularity Manipulation active.
The addition of the Superior Shield Repair passive.
The addition of Romulan Threat-Scaling Science Consoles with a Shield Heal proc.
The additional power (only +1.8) from the Romulan Zero-Point console.
The additional Power Insulators (+19.7) from the Romulan Zero-Point console.

One could say that they also added the Hull-Repairing Nanites passive and the Rom consoles can also proc a Hull Heal...but uh, yeah - nothing like the love Shields got.

So the combination of those two things...I'd say is why you're seeing more Breen Clusters in use (especially with the broken chain crit mechanics)...
