Ok i get the heal but is the chanse of the shield heal worth giving up the 3 extra dps points you know ya getting every shot, I like heals but i allways want more power lol any thoughts.
Something to consider: the shield heal proc was changed with the recent patch. It's now a heal over time as opposed to a large heal, like hitting a shield battery. When you add that to the "chance" to proc, DPS may be more valuable to you.
I'm still roughly two days away from starting construction on the T3 fabricator. I can't shake a feeling of irritation with how Elite ground gear has been setup. From what I've read about the DPS and weapon types, I'm getting the feeling I'll mostly be picking up a couple of these for the unique artwork. I know they didn't want to over power these weapons compared to STF gear, but STF gear doesn't require a monetized in game currency (dilithium) to purchase. I'll have to hold off on a true review until I get my hands on the gear myself. The armor at least looks worth getting.

Advanced ones aren't...bad. A good trade-off if you just want a nice melee weapon without trying the exchange. They all have Dmg x3 and CrtD or CrtH.
Elite ones (lirpas for Feds, and I presume Bat'leths for KDF)...
Dmg x2, CrtD or CrtH, and KB3.
Unless I was mistaken of course, and they have something else. That said, not really that useful to be honest. I didn't even see the KB3 proc in the rest of the tooltip info on the lirpas at least, only in the modifiers.
I wouldn't say they're very useful or worth using. You'd be better off spending 50 lobi and buying a weapon from there, that'll at least let you use a nice weapon plus the unique effect(s) it has, like the Tholian Sword. Or for Klingons, stick with a Shard Sword of Kahless.
What I believe they should add that could possibly solve the problem (that is loosing MACO/Omega/Honor Guard set bonus abilities)... Is a 4th piece to each ground set, a device which adds a new ability, but not one which is incredibly valuable, so for example a passive ability which will auto counter assimilation when all 4 set pieces are equipped, the device could be something which increases dodge chance as well as movement speed (which would be useful right?), so think of Melora's exoskeleton (click).
That way you could choose to swap out either say the STF set shield or Armour for one of the fleet Elite ground gear items, and as long as you have the device equipped you wouldn't loose any of the STF set bonuses, meaning you'd keep that quick remodulation.
