So I know the console will no longer be part of the Borg Assimilated set. But according to the Dev blog, the stats, (including the +5 to weapon power, I assume) will stay the same. So...even though with the Borg deflector, engines, and a MACO shield you would only get ONE of the Borg regenerative procs, will you still use those three items together? Also, do you think you'll still want to use the Borg console, knowing it will at least boost your weapon power?
Just curious...

Yes.

Frankly the other set bonuses (except, perhaps, Aegis) are rather pathetic for my purposes. Plus on one toon that doesn't have the Borg console, I already run two Borg piece plus MACO and he does just fine.

The devs are going to have to come up with a LOT better set bonuses than they have, because they seem to be one nearly-useless active ability combined with a passive ability only 25-50% of the potential users would ever find a use for. Note that I'm going off memory for this, but I'm pretty sure I'm fairly accurate with this assessment.

I run the Borg set on very few toons. Usually I do so until they can move onto bigger and better things. Only my KDF sci atm uses the Borg set currently, and that probably won't be staying forever anyways.

So, pretty much no on this. I felt it was a crutch awhile back, and started to phase myself out of using it. It's really very useful, but really acts as a crutch IMO without using your own skills to keep yourself alive.

Nope. Doesn't proc that reliably anyways, certainly not when I really need it. Tet Glider on the other hand is less impressive but a lot more reliable.

Yeah...this is why I won't use it. It can proc when your hull is at 99% which can leave you in the dust when you might actually need it. The only time I would use it if I were designing a whole borg ship around the twin sets.

On my Tac Galor ive been using MACO shields + 2 piece Aegis and its not that bad, im still just as good as before, the 2 piece +10% defence while moving is so worth it and is much better than a lot of the 2 piece (and a hell of a lot of 3 piece bonuses - yes im looking at you STF sets)

Speak for yourself. I like my 2 KHG + Omega Engine + Borg Console setup

Yes. Since I only have one hull heal (Hazard Emitters I) on my escorts, the 2pc borg is a nice passive hull heal.

i probably will be running it for a while, just until i can get the KHG engine and shield on my fed toons...may add the maco deflector, or stick with the borg one. If i'm correct that should give me 15 more aux power and an engine that basically restarts anytime they get deactivated and has nice stats too.

Nope, already put them through the replicator on my main toons. Still keeping the console to try out the new set in s7
I only used 2 piece borg (Engine/Console) and 2 piece Maco anyways. Now that the console has been changed I saw no point in using the engine despite its faster sector warp speed.....
