# 1 Borg set Vs Jem'hadar set
03-15-2012, 05:50 PM
Howdy, i came back few weeks ago after having played back at launch. I am really loving the game now, nice to see so many much needed improvements.

But anyhow I have a question I now am able to get the retro borg set (i think that is the name) and I already have the Jem'Hadar set from the Eps. Was wondering in your opinions which set is better overall (I play a tactical Cat.)

I looked at the + and - for each and not sure how they tend to work out over all in game terms.

Well, what I have found best that works is the Borg set with the MACO shield. The Jem'Hadar set is good, but I love the healing procs I get from the borg set.

As tac/escort, I do the same as Ham - 3 piece Borg set with MACO shields.

The Jem'hadar shields are pretty good, too. The healing proc is nice. The kinetic and crew resists are kind of a joke (shields already have innately high kinetic resistance and the crew stat barely matters, and even with resistance you'll still leave combat with coffins stacked to the rafters), but it has the same resistance as the MACO shield against everything except plasma, so against most enemies it's a matter of taking lower capacity than the MACO shield in exchange for a decent built in heal. Against Borg, though, the MACO's extra plasma resistance is king.

Jem'Hadar is fantastic if you run a science set-up. The deflector is much better than the borg one if you shield strip, not as good if you spam gravity wells and tractor beams. Additionally, a science set-up made to shield strip really benefits from the polaron damage boost, and tet-polaron hybrids.

The healing n the Jem sheilds has been fixed as it was a bug the amount we were getting was on the rediculous side and the fix was needed. However they seem to have swung in the opposite direction and now my shields are being cut through like a hot kife through butter. Even none set shields last longer.

Of course the Jem set is a hell of a lot easier to get. Mk XI Rare for about an hour of total gameplay. How many STFs do you have to run to load up on Borg tech?

For a full set of borg, you need a maximum of 15 normal STFs, possibly less, plus the first mission from the Undine series.

A full Borg set really needs a setup of running Shield power as higher as can be run. The Borg shield can and will be taken down under a heavy fire. But it will regeneration very quick if on high power. And higher shield power hardens the shield with more damage resistance. So your ship will need to be able to take a few hull hits.

A Cruiser would be ideal with good power enhancing potential and large hulls. Science ships has the advange of a larger shield modifier and have only moderate hulls. Escorts might benefit from the high shield regenerattion after making an attack pass. But will be vulnerable to big hits or a lot of aeention.
