target shields for my DBB and use tractor with shield drain doff.
Hmm...maybe Polarons+Plasmonic Leech backed by Transphasic Torpedoes? (Just tossing the idea out there, I know the Proc's been altered on Polarons, and Leech was 'fixed' [Neutered])

If you want to proc someone's shields off the best choice is overwhelmingly just equipping phasers.

When I'm in the MVAE I throw TSS(x) into the Ens slot, and every once in a blue moon I'll get a proc off. It's not even close to reliable though. The TB DOff does add a small amount of extra damage.

For taking out shields, in order of strength it goes:

1. Phaser proc
2. Subnuke (has to be timed properly)
3. Overwhelming force
4. Tet Glider
5. Et al.

Nice to know, haven't tried TSS in a year or so. Might stick with the BO then. Also thinking a Sci scort in Fleet advanced escort or Mobius could be best for this job, equip with phasers, tet glider, BO and has the subnuke, and has the extra sci to fit in extra shield drain skills and/or tb on top of that.

Also thinking if Vesta spam in the ques/kerrat gets really out of hand I will resort to my B'rel cheese build. Using AMS, SS, EWP, then DPB3 trico mines all while cloaked should also do the job, I try not to do this to people anymore though as its not very fair, but will start doing it again to encourage people to use variety of ships rather then just Vesta spam everywhere.

You forget the perfect shield ability:

"The three-piece set bonus grants you a Quantum Focused Shield Bubble. A Quantum Focused Shield Bubble is effectively a perfect shield. While active, your ship's hull is invulnerable and will take no damage, including damage caused to yourself from Ramming Speed. Your shields too become hardened - the more Auxiliary power the more resistant they become - up to 100%. However, while active, all weapons are offline."

So essentially they ninja-ed Ablative armour into the Vesta as well.

The ship has 4x special abilities....

I'll do the same if the SNB doff cheese goes nuts Fed-side.

I'll do one of Hus' torp builds and harass that team from cloak.

Has TSSS III worked out good for you lately? haven't used it in awhile and other poster seems to not like it, but he was using lower level versions I think. Still deciding if I should use that or BO instead.

does this help if their shields are already stripped/ knocked offline?
also if they use 3 pc bonus they will have weaker armor and base shields due to wasting console slots so may be easier to take out after that perfect shield is gone. I doubt we will see too many 3pc sets just like hardly anyone uses 3pc on Oddy/Bortasqu
