01-09-2013, 09:29 PM
ok guys, i just would like know...
shouldnt Borg Engines MKXII be better than MKXI?
like having 6 to engine power, compared to 5 on MKXI..
It would not make difference in pratical use, but at least
we would feel better burning our resources.

It appears that there is zero reason to want Mk XII.

Not true. The mk XII engines are what is needed to complete the mk XII set and gain access to the mk XII assimilated tractor beam and regenerative shielding. Basically the 3 piece set bonuses.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

Engines seem to have always had this problem, AFAIK.

Set bonuses for mk xii.

Or in full, paying too much to get the set bonuses while using the minor upgrade of the mk xii shield and def over your 5 edc mk xis you got in S6 that you wish had been converted to xii.

This is a display error only and the team is investigating. The XII engines are better than the XIs, and you can see your stats change when you equip them if you are looking at your stats on the status screen while in space.

Thank you, Is there a difference in the old Borg set and the new one we unlock? I have the old one and wondering if its worth it to buy the new one with the stuff we earn?...

The Mk XII dont seen that much better, there was a +2 increase on a (singular) bonus on the Deflector that dont not justify the cost.

I could justify it maybe if for say for example if the full XII retro borg set made it look like the borgified ships such as like the borgified vo'quv at the end has a distinct look we can't get on them but I'm afraid the tiny smidgeon of stats like others have said it isn't worth spending all that time and currency on something that isn't worth it. Has to be cosmetic or substance or both
