I beg to differ, in the majority of arenas or 1v1's I've been in atleast half if not more are using fleet shield. Pugs for instance may have a lower usage rate of these shields but premade/pug mades use these shields on a continuing basis...and guess what they use ResA. But nevertheless it's always good practice to have multiple energy types at your disposal.

You'll have to be a bit more specific when using "Borg set" proc.

The only real exception is using plasma/disruptor hybrid weapons, where the main damage type is disruptor damage, while the extra proc it can give is the plasma DoT burn. That should answer your query.

Your welcome
Just a minor FYI: there are currently no disruptor weapons with a plasma hybrid procs. There are Romulan Plasma weapons with disruptor procs, but not the other way around.

BTW, the new Romulan plasma science consoles are sporting from +8.9 to +10.9 bonus damage each. Stacked together, they easily counter Omega STF anti-plasma shields +20% plasma resists. Used with plasma infuser tac consoles, plasma fires inflict enough damage to overwhelm even hazard emitter based ships. The new hyperflux plasma dot is no joke either -- it can melt ships in seconds unless cleared quickly.

Plasma-Disruptor Hybrid...you get them from an episode mission. Yes they do exist I believe.

Thanks for the correction... do you have the URL available for the weapon?

yes resA, for a reason. its resisting the best wep types used. no reason for resB because even tho your using that type against resA im still going to adapt to that crap as if im borg. not only that but if your using the wep types restsied by resB then your not going to make much of a diff any how. anti protons? what a joke. ide rather just use plasma and use ewp to close gaps.

Sorry, ill be more specific. Both the hull heal from the 2pc Borg set and the hull and shield heal from the 3pc Borg set and any other heal proc (including rep heals), all proc from any damage taken. This includes pet spam and plasma DoTs. That and what DDIS said about most people not currently having the elite fleet shields, I'd still have to say plasma still currently isn't a good choice for PvP.

ya, the minor bonus that you would need several of to equal 1 tac console arent going to come even close to countering an extra 20% resistance. it would take a lot more then 1 tac console worth of bonus to buff your damage 20%

thats 1 reason im going to be using disruptors on at least 1 character, for the preference of resA shields. the disruptor proc seems to be double procing for disruptor damage any more actually, its a substantial debuff

Y'all seem to be overlooking my point, using say Disruptor or plasma gives you an advantage to say if you're using phasers against a ResA. Maybe a small advantage but nonetheless a advantage. That's how you win people, you get the advantage.
