Hey all,

I currently have the Borg engine and deflector and just now go the Borg shields.

I was using a rare Covariant Shield Array MK XI [cap]x2 that brought my shields to:
8262 each side
120 regen / 6 seconds

The Borg brings me to:
6142 / side
246 regen / 6 seconds
+5 shield power setting
Set 3: Multi-Regenerative Shield Array

Passive
When receiving All Damage, 10% chance of applying Multi-Regenerative Shield Array when any shield facing falls below 20%

approximately 315 Shield Regeneration applied once to each facing
approximately 1485 Shield Regeneration over 10 sec to each facing
Cleanses all Hazard Debuffs, such as the Borg Shield Drain, and continues to cleanse every 0.5 seconds for 15 seconds.



Now, my little Multi-Vector has two Antiproton dual cannons in the front, AP beam array and Quantum Torpedo. All MK XI [borg] stuff.

I need to get close in a lot of times to carriers so quite often I find my shields getting beat down quicker than I know what to do.

My BOFF's have Emergency power to shields 2, Science Team 2 and Tactical team 1 for when the Borg beam over and start shutting my systems down.

Does anyone have experience with a similar build? Me and my buddy might PVP this weekend to screw around and give me an idea if these shields are worth it, being that 90% of the time the Set 3 passive buff won't kick in so I'm pretty much screwed right?

Do the Assimilated mission and get the borg console, then get MACO shields ... borg deflector, engine, console with MACO shields is the best setup for escort that I've seen yet (YMMV)

Running the Tact. Escort Refit, I run with 3/4 Borg (Console,Engines and Deflector) and MACO X Sheild.
(You will need to start some where until you can work up to the higher levels.)

Check this post out for some info on STF Shields: http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...d.php?t=249933

A couple of the MACO shield benefits are:
10% resistance to all energy damage
20% resistance to plasma damage
Power conduit link 100% proc rate when attacked with energy weapons that gives +2 to +10 power to all systems for 15s.

As an Escort, since we are DPS mainly (You could tank, but I doubt it would be effective as a crusier with more Eng consoles) the max on your shields wont matter to much. Depending on your boffs, you should be able to keep your sheilds up and hull free of DoTs until the tank can recover aggro, if you are in a group. If you are soloing you might want to try and get more resists to what you are going up against, but the 20% to plasma is awesome against Borg weapons.

Hope some of this helps.

MACO shield with borg set is what most people run with apparently. All you lose is the tractor beam, which is just an annoyance to people in pvp for a couple seconds at most.

Also, if you are always fighting within 45 degrees head on, swap the beam out with a 3rd cannon, you'll get a lot more DPS.
