Really, I dont see how this is an issue? Just carry MACO engine in your inventory and swap it when you travel ?
Not an issue at all to be honest - I do swap the engines over if necessary, but as I said, I don't using the Aegis engine to be a problem anyway . If I need to get from A to B particularly quickly I either use a transwarp coil or transwarp to my Fleet's Starbase and use it's transwarp gate.
Nope. Doesn't proc that reliably anyways, certainly not when I really need it. Tet Glider on the other hand is less impressive but a lot more reliable.
Yeah...this is why I won't use it. It can proc when your hull is at 99% which can leave you in the dust when you might actually need it. The only time I would use it if I were designing a whole borg ship around the twin sets.
On my Tac Galor ive been using MACO shields + 2 piece Aegis and its not that bad, im still just as good as before, the 2 piece +10% defence while moving is so worth it and is much better than a lot of the 2 piece (and a hell of a lot of 3 piece bonuses - yes im looking at you STF sets)
I heard from a friend who went on tribble that the new Borg set is going to be significantly more powerful than the retro set. Any truth to this?
And on topic:
Without the 2maco2borg combo, I will probably end up going maco deflector and shield with the omega engine, or I might just go full maco set (even though that graviton beam is just... disappointing). I would go full KHG since that set is just sick, but I still have an issue with the covariant shield array. Not as durable as the MACO shield, and regenerates extremely slowly. Even with a TSS2, it still is slow as hell. I am probably set in my MACO shield usage. Resilient, good defenses, and has the power relay proc.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Yeah, I'm keeping it. The hull heal was the best feature of the set for my escorts anyway. I believe I may even go for the new cutting beam. I like my quantums, but I've got to at least see what the 2-piece weapon bonus on the new set does for me. So I'll put that beam in the back, between my turrets.
