Its just me who find the set rather expensive/hard to get, compared to other sets(borg , jemhadar or breen) and its own bonuses(extra def while moving, reactive shielding). I mean , for comparaing Borg set is just 15 EDC + a mission(15 ECD's are aprox 5hours of playing with aditinal rewards and chance for more good anti borg stuff(rare'rs)), wich is easy achivable in one day, or the jem hadar/breen set are just 3-2 missions to obtain while only the unpredictable materials for the aegis are way more work then these.

If the crafting had not been such a muck up the aegis set might not be so much to get.
They could fix that problem by either making it available by say 3 different missons or the same way the Borg set is available to get for 5 chips a bit.

... so don't get it and use the others? It remains the only set you can craft to use, or sell if you choose to if people still buy it, or mail to alts...

it used to be the cheapest of them all^^ before f2p and during the second coming of the crafting system (we are now in the fourth coming)

back in the day i built 10 or 15 sets of this, and sold it over the last few month making a fortune.

but yeah according to the current price tag, it should be the best set ingame, or atleast enpar with the maco or omega XII

Im not using it, im using others, but since i tried it before getting the other set its now just there in my bank "rotting", and getting old. And my problem is comparing to what the ingame description of the item set is its prety weak compared to others imo. (imo = in my opinion)

I quite like using it on my fragile escort. Well worth the prohibitive cost there. But for other ships, it's just not worth it.

Seconded. I paid about 5m ec's for my set off of the exchange. Not sure what they're going for now (I just shut the game off as the Chick'fil'a staff are eying me) but it's nice to have a set one can purchase instead of having to earn via STFs, missions, etc.

I'd actually counter that while the Aegis is expensive to craft, one way to make it 'bang on' and worth it would be to have a craft-able console with additional bonuses... so Aegis would be a 4-piece set like the Borg.

A console add-on would continue to make Aegis unique and a top end-game item... plus could be a great way for those that don't want to grind for the MACO or OMEGA sets to be able to have access to better stuff for PVP.

Of course, additional sets of 'mini-Aegis' ship equipment that could be built at lower levels and/or the ability to craft ground equipment sets like the Jemmi set... would also be ridiculously awesome

What the heck do you charge for a full Aegis set that makes it worth the dilithium costs involved?
