I guess I'll be forced to 2-piece Borg plus whatever shield from my current 2-piece Borg (engines or deflector with console) plus whatever else 2-piece (including shield).
Unless there are some nice new sets coming, I really won't like that change.
TOIVA, Toi Vaxx, Toia Vix, T'vritha, To Vrax: Bring in the Allegiance class Toi'Va, Ti'vath, Toivia, Tia Vex, Toi'Virth: Add Tier 6 KDF Carrier and Raider. Tae'Va, T'Vaya, To'Var, T'Vira, To'Vrak: Give us Asylums for Romulans
With the Assimilated Console being released from the existing Borg space set, and being placed in a set with a plasma projectile & a whacky cutting beam, what will all those who enjoy they're three piece Borg set do now? Will Aegis, Jemmy, Reman, Breen etc enjoy some new found lovin'?
But, to be honest.. I've been playing around with all the sets lately. They're pretty good in what they do.
It's just that tanking is so important in a 5 console tac pvp world, that maximum tank to avoid the instant pop has become the utmost important thing.
At least this change will allow variation. But then again, history repeats itself in STO. The Maco-3pcBorg was a chapter, its time to turn the page and start testing builds again. To me, that's always fun to see new things and what they do even if they've been around for a while.
Please continue using the borg set after it changes to need the shield to make 3 pc set, I would love to have my targets using that shield.
Those heals wont matter if you don't survive long enough for them to kick in and heal you, and if you are constantly getting hull damage because its too easy to rip a shield facing away the borg hull heal can't make up for that.
