transphasic torps normally have a 10sec cooldown, the rapid fire have an 8sec cooldown. they hit as hard as normal transpasics BUT they only have the acc and i think crit hit bonus (plus the time reduction) making them very rare (which also means they get the +15% damage bonus over common ones)

in my luna i use them, theyre great. i run the delfector and the shield to get the extra damage boost and power transfer, i also run a regular eps and use rapid fire with 2 turrets and a cannon..

the set isnt for everyone for sure, but its neat to have.

Wait, you mean people that actually know what they're doing use this set?

I generally only use the Breen set when leveling a new toon. Even then, I only use the deflector and engines, prefering on a covariant capx2. As soon as they reach RA I buy/craft them an Aegis set.

Purely anecdotal, but I have the breen deflector on a DSSV I am levelling up, and on a much bigger ship than my raptor, those turn resists seem to be very good, maybe inertia is important for this. Borg tractors, which are usually quite effective, so far have been unable to stop me turning at all. They almost stop my forward motion, but I can still turn normally.

Anyway, probably a bit moot now since Cryptic have announced 3 more sets for end game. I wonder what they'll be...
