Now, as we all know, Mk XII gear will become irretrievable as a standard loot drop. They will be replaced by Omega Marks and Borg Neural Processors from Elite drops.
The question now is "Are you prepared?" That being said, do you have everything you need to fight the Borg for your new Assimilated Mk XII gear?
Obvious readiness levels include: Full Mk XII gear, ground and space; optimized skill set for desired effect (i.e. Squad Command ranks for Squad Leader Kit), and for the lowbies, high-level standard gear, including Consoles and Fleet Weapons.
My level ranges to "Come at me, bro," at full Mk XII M.A.C.O. gear, Advanced Fleet Weapons, and blue Mk XI consoles.
I admit, I am a little excited to get a shot at the Reman set without having to run the Vault. Lets just say... my first experiences with it could be summed up with the word "Robbed".
