I used Aegis until I got my Mk XI MACO, just like BorticusCryptic says above. I was able to get it almost immediately upon reaching lvl 50, without any grind other than Dilithium, which I'd already earned by leveling up. Seems to me that it did its job. What more do you want?
Except that you could, (and from what we understand still will), be able to get a far supiriour borg set for a day or twos work.
getting an Aegeis set is a week or mores work because of the Dil/EC costs. In that time you will certinalyl be onto MACO/OMEGA with the new system, and probably would have been with the old system.
Before this thread gets too carried away, I wanted to chime in on the subject...
The Aegis Set is obtained via Crafting. It always has been, and always will be.
While we're open to taking feedback on the stats and bonuses of the existing gear (let's call it the Aegis Mk XI Set, for simplicity), no new versions are likely to be introduced until we revisit the Crafting system as a whole.
And even then, I wouldn't expect this set to ever be exactly on-par with the STF sets. It's intended to be good enough to last most players until they can obtain Mk XI Omega sets. A few specific builds may get more life out of it, but that's a niche sort of thing.
i really dont like this ideology, everyone of these sets should be viable at end game. what does that say about normal equipment? why bother making it in mkX-XII?
the aegis deflector and engine are fine, better then maco imo, at least the engine is hyper and you get +10 defense from them, very nice. but the shields is terrible, its a blue quality mkX cov with cap+2 and a tiny amount of extra shields power. i suggest cap2, reg2 or cap2, +10 energy resistance like maco.
thats all the set needs. this set is supposed to be a counterpart to the borg set, and the borg set is still basically king. so aegis should be closer to its level, and not so far behind. its 1 thing fro breen and jemhadar to be training wheels, but this was a former premium set.
Even if it was free, if i cna get5 somthing markedly better for a ay or two's work it's still usless
So long as there's no requierment to run one of the lower sets to have a chance at getting your OMEGA marks to get you your STF gear there's simply no use for them becuase the alternatives are so cheap.
And thats before we mention the fact that their are equally good engines and better sheilds avalibile from crafting or drops. The set bonusus and the really good deflector are the only things the set actually has in it's favour.
If you don't run end-game content, why do you think you need or deserve end-game quality gear? Do you even recognize how ridiculous you sound?
Yeah i'll agree with this.
No one was suggesting that we shouldn;t have top work as hard for it. I mean sure if we have to wait till next season for a general federation reputation, ior similar), to get it, wlel thats ok. I don;t mind having to go through the same level of hoop jumping for the set. i just don't think there's any point to it as is becuase you can grind out better gear fairly quickly.
... I'm not sure it's worth posting. But here goes:
Why not do what other games have done?
Have Aegis upgrades tied to other content.
So, for example, a Mk XII upgrade that uses an Elite STF drop like Elite Omega Marks?
Maybe to differentiate it, require something like Aegis Mk X, 10 Elite Omega Marks, dilithium, and a Romulan schematic available for T5 Romulan people. (Or maybe just as a Romulan project that uses 10 OEFM, dil, and the Mk X version.)
Simple explanation. The Aegis technology has design limitations that the Borg have overcome. The Romulans know more about installing and retrofitting Borg technology. The upgraded version has a teal Tron glow.
I dunno. There are probably reasons why that would never work. I give.

An expensive lesson that one compromised account can undo the hours of work and hundreds of dollars spent in good faith by a fleet.
I think Aegis needs a buff now. All the end game sets are pretty much stomping on all that Aegis is and its kind of annoying. I propose we get a Doff Assignment or something of the sort that can make Aegis into Advanced Aegis Mk XII.
Shield should be a Cap X3 Reg X2.
Engine should have a driver coil upper that makes warp a little faster.
Deflector should be a Positron with [Shds] [EM] [Sif]
Set 2 should be a nice hull heal resistance
set 3 should be sort of a adaptive resistance for shields and make all energy types take less damage. Including Hybrid weapons.
could do with some love thats for sure. i would have thought it could easily go from x to xi to xii via crafting+doffs
what if some doff assingments took it from x -xi needing some componemts that can be crafted.
then to go from xi-xii with some extra componets needed for a doff assingment which are obtained from the new embassy/reputation system?
