This is incorrect. They pretty much stop at MK X.


That being said, the Devs saying "They weren't intended for STFS!!!!111!!!" Is more "Playing as intended" nonsense - people should have a choice in variety for their endgame gear. We shouldn't all be forced into a small set of builds.

Personally though, I tend to run resilient shields, positron deflector, and combat impulse engines, which no set thus far uses.

From what I've heard, Aegis reaches MK X only, not XII.
My fav too, but I agree something went wrong with the scaling around mk10, and for the price of materials, the exploration for samples and all the useless crap I had to build to get my crafting ability high enough to build that set I would think it should be at least marginally sub-par to high end STF sets. What other sets cost 150K + in dilith and exploration time and is as marginally useful ?

The mk 11 and 12 REMAN sets ?

Cryptic should introduce a Crafting C-Store item (1000C) to allow you to bump an Aegis piece to endgame quality (3000C total).

Because of the upcoming changes to the Borg set i looked around and have been trying out Aegis 2 piece + MACO shields and its not bad (ive got 16k shields and 60k hull - with Jevonite lol), i can tank the tactical cubes still in my Tac Galor just as well, i just get hit less now with the +10% defence

the current aegis set would be good, if the shield wasn't literally a blue quality shield. its a cap 2 cov that slightly boost shield power, by like maybe 1.

if it were a cap 3, reg1 or a cap 2, reg 2, or a cap 2, +10% resist like maco, then it would be a usable set.

its a counterpart to the borg set. borg set is an end game set weather they like it or not, therefore aegis should be an end game set

When they nerf the Omega set I'll prolly go back to it (with my mk12 KHG shield), I'm not overly impressed with the glider I just started using. Am actually not all that impressed with the KHG shield either, my field gens don't seem to buff it at all- am still getting like 5800 with a mk12 field gen on a Pach.

Persevered with the Aegis Deflector + Aegis engine + MACO shield setup on my Wells, and have not thus far found any reason to remove it.

It's not an outstanding combo, but it's more than adequate and I actually prefer it over the full Omega set (and I don't have a MACO deflector yet, so can't fit the full MACO set).
Personal T6 Ship Wishlist:

Nova/Rhode Island class with Hybrid Pilot BOFF seat.

That is all. (guess this wasn't really a 'list' after all!)

I don't think the Aegis set is in as desperate need of an upgrade as people think. It still has a higher cap than the MACO shields, and the deflector still offers some nice stats. Case in point, it's still competitive at endgame.
