So I got the Aegis set yesterday, and was wondering which would be the best for my MVAM Escort. I'll probably use it for PvE with all the new starbase fleet actions for Season 6.

MACO shield is definitly worth for any ship. But maybe just farm all sets and decide for yourself.

I have a set of Omega XI and MACO X for my MVA Escort and right now I'm using the MACO set. The Omega is fine for most standard STFs, where the speed can be really fun on such a nimble craft, but lately, with the large number of heavy hitting Klinks in the Fleet missions that spam the ricocheting energy ball of death, the MACO's been a bit more useful for me.

MACO's a very good overall set though, and it's not a bad choice. I'm not sure how it compares to Aegis though, which might be even more effective for defense in the fleet missions.

As for what to use, I suggest finding the one you feel would suit you better via testing. But if you like Aegis, you'd probably like MACO as well. They're similar in some respects.

Just wait until someone tells you: 3Borg+MACO Shield

I'd suggest 3Borg+MACO Shield.
The boost to your survivability is great, to power nice, and the shield is one of the best ingame.

I love the Aegis set but upgraded to the KHG shield (MACO isn't available to KDF) BUT will likely upgrade again to the Borg engine and refit the Aegis shield to get the Thoron distortion field back, and with the Borg engine and assimulated module will get a second bonus- autonomous regen.

Why such hate for the Aegis set?

i agree m8, on all my ships i run all borg set minus the shield which i use the M.A.C.O MK XII,

if you read the stats for the Aegis it is excelent for defence as it boost's most of your defence stats,

i have omega 12 set; not impressed.

i have maco 12 set; not impressed.

i have all other sets except for the reman 12 set and need 5 datalogs to finish that up. i have high hopes. we will see.

i have aegis, borg, breen, jem'hadar sets. not impressed.

here it goes:

the 3 piece borg set with maco 12 shields is the ultimate set up.

i wish "pure" sets were better. i would like to see some way to upgrade pure sets to make them better.

i put sets like jem'hadar and breen on shuttles. just seems wrong.

now when i take a shuttle into the vault i load it up with 3 piece borg and maco 12.

What everyone else says - pretty much 3 Borg + Your STF shield of choice and you're good to go...with the exception of KHG set, then I *personally* think 2+2 is an excellent choice.

I just finished acquiring the Maco and Omega sets; in both stats and in practice, the Omega space set seems utterly pointless to me, especially since my ships can tank better with the Aegis set, and don't suffer any negative consequences as a result of using that lower set.

It's a shame, because the Omega shields actually look really classy on the Galor.

Omega is an offense-heavy set. The deflector gives a bonus to your targeting system and the shield to your flight speed. Combined they give you the Tetryon Glider for shield-eating, particularly if combined with CRF. Its not pointless, just a different use.
