I just got back to STO a few days ago (long break) and I've been catching up with all the changes since Season 5. I just was wondering if anyone had anything to say about the Fleet Shop.
I investigated it yesterday. Seems pretty cool. Its filled with Weapons and Starship Equipment that have 4 modifiers on it. Anyway, I was just wondering what people's thoughts were on them. Are they worth using? Are the equipment options less flashy than the set equipment from STFs? Are the weapons there accepted globally as the highest level up?
PvPers don't like the fixed [Dmg]x3 modifiers in the advanced fleet weapons, but a careful selection in the other systems can be better than the STF gear. Advanced Fleet weapons are usually better than the old [Borg] weapons, however.
Fleet equipment, may not be considered the best, but it is pretty solid in that it's not weak or anything. I mean all the Advanced Space Shields for example have CapX3, which normally would be rather pricy to get already, plus an extra modifier after that.
So it's excellent stuff if you want it enough. Very pricy to totally outfit yourself, but if you have the fleet credits and dil, still worth while.
