# 1 The Borg set w/ Cov capx3
12-24-2010, 07:58 PM
Just posting this to get some feedback from people who have tried using the Borg set - the borg shields with the Cov capx3 shields in place. Ultimately losing the tractor beam would suck but how does the set work with Non Reg shields?? Looking for anyone who either has done this and can offer their experience or STO gurus who fully comprehend the Regen dynamic coupled with what the Borg set bonuses offer, thanks.

I have tried it both ways and to be honest. I like it with the Borg shield better. Yes it is a little weaker against a good alpha strike but it heals a lot faster and more often. Plus with the hull heal proc I can often survive longer even when a shield drops.

I'd still go with Covariant [Cap x3], unless you're in a Cruiser or some other ship that can rotate EPtS and maintain high shield power.

If you can keep you shield power high and have a macro/keybind or keep mashing buttons to redistribute your shields constantly, the Borg shield can be VERY powerful.

i plan on effecient engine+borg shields, deflector, console- that way everything except the engines gets +10 directly to the power.

I'm using the Aegis Cov shield and the rst of the Borg stuff. Still get the benefit of the shield and hull heal plus the covarient shield. works pretty well.

Borg shields are good for none escort vessels, I use covariant capx3 with the rest borg and it works very well in pvp, using the borg shields (as cool as the tractor is) it isent worth it as your life expectancy is about 4 seconds in an escort.... I also target people using these shields as it is a really easy kill.. I wish they would swap regen for cap in the shields so that us escorts can use it without the fear of being *****..
