Nope. Not at all.
You think that your beta test was bad?

collector?

Borg set is great on heals..but my wingman got me on that. He is a great healer.

Now with that being said I understand....but I disagree in the regards to team play. Even though borg set can help in team healing its a wasted proc if your health is full....do what your suppose to do in team..my escort is to do damage..my heals heals me. That my philosophy.

8.8 to 12 is a great upgrade. Thats more dps....plus the other things that can be granted since ur a dominion ship.

My thoughts exactly.

I'd love to have this set for theme, but an increase of the Dominion synergy polaron bonus means it goes from a measly 8% to 12% or something like that.

When I slotted the MK XI 2 piece recently, that meant about a 1.5% DPV gain on a DHC.

While every last % of extra damage is good to have, 1.5% on DPV doesn't compete in my mind, even remotely, with alternative options.


By alternative options, I generally mean Borg 2 piece, because even after the nerf no other 2 piece Eng/Deflector does anything noticeable enough to make it worth swapping out from for an Escort.

(I'd love for Tet Glider to be one of those that replacements for example, but in both controlled testing and live 5v5 matches Tet Glider w/ DHCs + CRF seemed to make no significant or even remotely visible impact on damage performance).

If you're using a Combat Log parser, Tetryon Glider isn't likely to even show up. Shield Drain damage isn't very well reported (if at all) in our Combat Logs.

And yes, fixing that is on our short list.

Correct. I have never seen tet glider show up in my parses. I can only go with what I see with my eyes, and that is shields dropping faster.

Yes, I know, less then scientific, but when the run goes faster something happened.
I once again match my character. Behold the power of PINK!
