Just posting this to get some feedback from people who have tried using the Borg set - the borg shields with the Cov capx3 shields in place. Ultimately losing the tractor beam would suck but how does the set work with Non Reg shields?? Looking for anyone who either has done this and can offer their experience or STO gurus who fully comprehend the Regen dynamic coupled with what the Borg set bonuses offer, thanks.
I have tried it both ways and to be honest. I like it with the Borg shield better. Yes it is a little weaker against a good alpha strike but it heals a lot faster and more often. Plus with the hull heal proc I can often survive longer even when a shield drops.
Borg shields are good for none escort vessels, I use covariant capx3 with the rest borg and it works very well in pvp, using the borg shields (as cool as the tractor is) it isent worth it as your life expectancy is about 4 seconds in an escort.... I also target people using these shields as it is a really easy kill.. I wish they would swap regen for cap in the shields so that us escorts can use it without the fear of being *****..
