# 1 Tet Glider
02-19-2012, 05:43 PM
I keep seeing posts on the forums and chats in the PVP chat channel that sing high praises for the skill. I finally did the grind to get the two pieces of the Omega set and have been slightly disappointed in it. I guess my question is how far do i need to invest in this to make it worth while. I run emblem anti-proton DHC on my defiant but I hear that Tet Glider works best with Pol/Tet. Is it still a worth while skill with the other weapon types. I currently have no points invested into flow cap. I am out of respecs and would hate to give the crazies anymore of my money for get another token. I just don't exactly understand the mechanics behind this skill to justify spending all of the money to get a new weapon loadout and another respec token. How much realistic shield damage does it do and do you find it worth giving up the tanking ability of the MACO/Borg loadout.

Thanks for the help.

I can get in the 90s per weapon using 3x flow consoles, max flow sp investment, +24 deflector, and astrometrics trait @ full weapons power.

its free damage. anything that causes extra free damage to any weapon that you use can only be a good thing. and since it only needs 2 peices you can still do the 2 peice borg set for free extra hull heals.


rememebr! anything free in pvp is always good because its free!

free damage at the cost of something else...

your neutronium...

your +35

your p2w bs...

this is a good bonus, just make sure you prioritize in your build.

have fun kill bad guys

Well in fairness it does mean a lot fewer Borg shield procs flying around.

I'm with my brother panda on this one, you give things up to run this...

-Running the shield and another piece, this gives up wearing a really good shield for an OK one
-Slotting the engine and deflector and stick with the Haco shields, but then you lose the borg hull proc
-Stacking flow capacitors to buff the glider a ton, but you loose the benefits of other sci consoles which have been improved
-Using a non-set-piece deflector with a larger flow capacitor bonus will buff it even more, but once again you are sacrificing having any of the borg healing procs.

quoting self = full of win!

anywho, let me clear that up...in my defiant i had to move the cloaking console back to the engie slot, which i had been running 2 eps, and a neutronium. so, we're not dropping the eps there...so neutronium had to go. and to max out flow capacitors i pulled the +35 to fit 2 flow cap consoles. also messed around with swapping out a non-set deflector too....

all in all...running (and maxing) tet glyder on a defiant became very pricey. loss of at least 1 set bonus, +35 shields, and no room for any lolconsoles.

that did get me up to about 90 i think, which lamid had posted above. either way it ended up just being to hard to max, so, i put everything back as it was, no consoles, no deflector ect....and back to just an average proc of 50 or so.

thanks aldo for expressing basically this while i couldnt post. -shifty eyes-

Who said that tet glider has to be maxed out in order to be effective?
