I honestly do not know if Mactraider meant it like this (and I am not even believing he did), but he kinda describes the fundamentals of the trick in his third-to-last paragraph.

Personally I am not sure I would run Borg Shields, but I think I would definitely run Borg Set Heals.

I doubt that.

Fleet Escort with 50 Shield Power + 2x EPtS + 1x +7 shield power console = ~100 shield power = lol'tastic.

I highly recommend Borg Shields as an Engineer in an FE. Just be sure to spam Distribute Shields literally constantly.

Attack Pattern Omega III

Tact LtCmdr BO Station
Tact Team I
Torp High Yeild II
Attack Patern Omega I

Tact Ensign BO Station
Tact team I

Eng Lt BO Station
Epts I
Epts II

Sci Lt BO Station
Sci Team I
Tss II

(please note I use the two copys of APO for their defensive capabilities, and that I generaly run with beams over cannons purely for the manouverability which = defense, whilst still doing very good dmg and kills for the team, I do use cannons too, I just change 1 BO over to accomadate this)

The above with the standard Eng Toon abilities (rotate shield freq, nadion inversion, eps power trans, eng fleet, miricle worker) all geared towards to keeping my shields up. Now you would think that this would be ample to keep the Borg Shields up and running smoothly.... but for me I struggle. I just feel that the above setup is superb for the Covar Mk XI Cap x3 shields.

Dont get me wrong I know the pvp game very well as it is all I do, so I do understand when to use my abilities during battles and when to fire off certain weapons......

I just dont understand the Regain (Borg) shields.

I would greatly appreciate other dedicated pvp'ers setups that use the Borg shields so I may look at and try to adopt as I can see the benefits from using them.

Thanks again all, look forward to seeing you in the areanas (say hi if you come accross me ingame)

PS: Noticed I ramble alot sry, but stick with the pvp and dont leave, just see the unbalance and flaws as a test of tanking, stratagey and skill. GOD BLESS THE PVP COMUNITY

I am tac and I have some serious weird power setups in my raptor like 125/90 weapon power and 68/40 shield power.

I like running Borg Shields on Science ships, specifically my Nebula. The extra shield capacity for Science ships helps a lot with the lower capacity of Borg shields. Since I play healer I run high shield power so regeneration shields are a natural choice, especially chaining two copies of EptS. Consoles that boost shield capacity and shield regeneration are great, too. I've not tried two Tactical Teams, though. My worst enemy is being alpha'd by several people at once... which is where capacity shields shine.

Borg shields? Don't use them. Put the Aegis shield on instead. The only borg skill you lose is a weak tractor beam, and you get a much better shield with some extra thrown in.
