I use the Borg shield on pretty much all my ships, usually with an Aegis Deflector for an extra +5 shield power.

I vastly prefer the Borg set to the Aegis set.

The power bonus, the resist to plasma, the regen shields, the procs for 52% hull heal and shield regen +15% shield resist when it procs.

Oh yeah...and the tractor beam, which can be very fun.. and even more fun when coupled with Warp plasma + phaser lance. It is easier to hit a target with the lance if it can't move.

yeah, it is very nice.

Borg > Aegis > Breen > normal gear.

Gone are the days where you could actually choose different types of gear. Almost everyone runs with either the Borg or Aegis Impulse engines... there's no reason not to. Same reason with Deflectors (though some people use Tachyons for CPB).

Yeah, I hope the new sets help, but I find the Borg procs a bit OP. I would rather a base hull/shield regen increase that compares more equally.

For me in my Excelsior its currently

Borg Deflector (+5 aux cos im a science captain)
Borg Console (obviously)
Aegis Shield (Almost as much cap as the reman shield)
Aegis Engine (Because its better than the borg engine and with the shield gives +10% defence)

I mainly PVE so the 3 piece set bonus shield regen proc isnt a lot of good when the borg are neutralising your shield anyway and the 4 piece bonus tractor beam is on too long a cooldown for me to ever bother with.

Its a shame the itemisation on the breen shield is so rubbish. I'd love to run the breen engine. Unfortunatly the set also lacks a decent set bonus anywhere.

I run the Breen set all the time. The problem is nothing compares to the OP Borg healing proc that kicks in every 5 seconds with a hull heal and twice as much with a shield heal in PvP. I have seen a cruiser tank with only Tac Team and Borg procs. It wasn't the best, but that is ridiculous.

Borg shields? On a cruiser? Only really worth it if you're team is deficient in shield healing imho. They're better used on science ships, and should never be used on escorts.

Capacity is more important now with the prevalence of CPB and Spread.

I agree. A fully skilled Cpb3+consoles and your shields are gone if you're playing an escort. Easy target if you got a decent team with burst damage.
