The Assimilated Tractor Beam have been made part of the set 3 of the Assimilated Borg Technology set (the current Borg set minus the console).

The console will be part of the Omega Adopted Borg Technology set, its set powers are.

Set 2:
1% change of applying "Omega Weapon Amplifier" (+10 weapons power for 21 seconds)
Set 3:
Reactive Deflection, when hit to drastically reduce all incoming damage for 1 second

1%?! they might as well say, here's a lottery ticket, but you can't have the money.
it should be much higher than that. 8% at the least.

actually you go me thinking. They could replace the borg tractor beam with a cutting beam!

You're not good at maths are you?

It's going to happen every 2 minutes or so and it lasts 21s. 21s is a huge amount of time in the game, it can make a difference. Acutally it will proc fairly often and will give you a huge buff, considering the fact that no other proc I know lasts such an amount of time.

I have already adapted, I dropped the console and borg gear for the Maco shield/engine and Aegis deflector.

Also got the option of Omega delflector/shield with Maco engine for more dps if needed.

I used to run 2 piece Maco and the borg engine + console, but switched to the borg for the extra heals.

Made a few million ec putting all my alts borg gear through the replicator and I gained a console slot on all my ships, so thats at least something

If I ever do Elite stfs again, it will be up to cruisers and sci ships to keep me alive like the devs want.

Maybe this is just the shakeup the game needs, but whatever happens, it will be interesting

If you already run 125 power in weapons, do you still get the benefit? Cant remember if we did or not...

As did I, numerous times AND I use it in my builds. I still think this change while good, doesn't go far enough.

Face it, the set is extremely overpowered and was a mistake from day one.

Yes, especially if you have 6 to 8 weapons to fire. The first one will fire at 125 but the next one could fire at 120, then 110, etc. You can't have enough power to your weapons.

Of course that would be considered FAIR business practices, something I've yet to see this company demonstrate.
Its not really fraud...not to mention MMO's change stuff all the time.

I'm worried the old set is just gonna be replaced by the new set...that 3 part bonus could be very powerful depending on how much of a damage reduction it gives.

Imagine getting CRFed by a Escort...that defense is pretty much gonna be running till CRF runs out. Honestly...I'm worried that everyone will just run around with the new borg 3 piece set...2 piece of old borg...and a khg or maco shield.

Basically could be going from the frying pan into the fire.

Well i dont understand why they switched the borg set up and not say anything but it seems the practice. Well it wont be a big deal for me i use 4x MK XII neutrouninm purples for tanking
and only the borg console and the tachyokanetic for crits on my Jemmy bug with a full MACO XII set. Have no problems with PvP or PvE. But i am interested in what all 6 set of borg will look like.
