# 1 Odyssey Class Tanking Setup
03-17-2012, 11:19 AM
Hey everyone just seeing if anyone has a good set up that they could share for tanking with my Odyssey Star Crusier. My problem is my shields I have get busted through to easy with tanking in Elite Stfs, they are Mark XI M.A.C.O Sheilds (with the rest of set). I have even tried the entire Borg set but the are even weaker. If anyone has ideas please share.

Get EPtS 3 x 2. TSS 2, and HE 1.

Edit: Use the Borg set with the MACO shields so you can get the healing procs.

Also use the Field Generator, or whatever gives you +35 to shield cap.

Not really. I suggest that every ship carry the +35 to shield cap console. That is really the only one that I would recommend. If you really want to shield tank, you might want to try the shield emitter console, however that also goes in you science slot.

The Odyssey is a armour-tank, you should focus on that. I use the retro-borg set with MKXI MACO shields (Borg engines, deflector and assimilated console, this will get you hull and shield heal procs) and two instances of EPtS, one reverse shield polarity and the +35% shield sci console (field generator). Make sure to set your shield power to 75, skill your shield skills to max and you are fine. Keep an eye on your shield, redistribute constantly.

Now, when you shields drop your ship truly shows what it is made of. Be sure to skill your armour and tank skills to max, get polarize hull, hazard emitters, EPtA, Aux to SIF, maybe a engineering team 3 and plaster your ENG consoles with appropriate armour and you will have a beast capable of tanking a tac cube (well, except for 600k damage critical torp-spreads XD ).

Why tank when the borg can 1 shot you anyway and all you need is damage to win?

Torpedo can't fire up. Tanking is possible.
