Age03 ... just so I'm clear, are you saying replace the MACO Mk12 set with the Omega MK12 set? I happen to have the Omega in the bank so that's easily doable.

I'm seeing a lot of recommendations about going 2 Borg (Deflect and Eng) with MACO shield. I thought that was "ol'school" pre-S7 advise and since the changes post S7 that Borg/MACO isnt the preferred set up it once was. Maybe Borg/MACO is still the move for escorts? But you're advising full Omega?

Thanks again for your advise.

That is exactly what I ma saying and not i has not changed since S7 arrived.It is still the same omega for Tacs ,Maco for Geers and Sci offs.It is ok if you were to use it on a cruiser but not an escort.

I'm a big fan of the full Borg set's Tractor Beam with the introduction of the Kinetic Cutting Beam, especially since nothing in PvE will spike enough for the lower shield to be a concern, while regen deals better with constant pressure.

The few times I get spikes in eSTFs, better shields wouldn't have saved me from the Borg's invisible 40k hits.

Not so good if you PvP, of course.
