Hi Folks,

I've been working on my build and piloting skills and my MVAE is starting to come together. I'm really beginning to like the Escort. I do have a question about what combo of gear is best.

I have the Borg 4 piece set

MACO XI Shield

Omege XI Engine

Jem Hadar XI Engine


Is it best to keep the Borg set together all the time? Or is it wise to switch out for the MACO XI shield and / or Jem Hadar XI Engine?

One other thing...I read on the forums that the RCS Console is bugged. Is that true?

I would appreciate some advice from the more experienced PVP players.

Thank you!

a very loaded question and each individual would probably give you a different answer. i was always big on the aegis systems for escort set ups but out of curiosity i added the retro borg set to my escorts and was so happy with the results i added the retro sets to all 6 of my toons. for me it worked well. for you who knows as so much of your abilities is related to how you set up your skill tree. but even so i found it best just to experiment until you find something which works best for you and your individual play of style. i think it took me almost 2 years to finally be happy with my bop set up and just from shear repetition and testing my other toons came into good set ups. always ask for advice for help but your individual testing should be the final absolution to your final builds.

Retro Bog + Maco Shield for the ultimate protection of your Hull,
or
2pieceRetroBorg (console+Engine) and 2Piece Omega for more Shield Haxx!

Please consider this, if u are alive u make more damage than dead
thats why i prefer the first alternative.... but like always it depends on play style.

have you tried... testing out different setups?

that's how all the good players find what works.

Solid.

If your play style is hit and run I'd also recommend :

Offense / evasion combo: Omega Deflector, AEGIS Engines, Omega Shield Borg Console

While you loose the MACO shield bonuses you get extra maneuverability, 5% more bonus defense, crit and power bonuses from the assimilated module.

It is a softer combo in terms of heals however and benefits from high engine power inducing misses over mitigation of damage.

Thanks for all the advice! It definitely helps. I appreciate it. I had not considered some of the builds suggested so it will be a lot of fun testing!
