# 1 Which set MACO or OMEGA?
05-30-2013, 12:16 PM
I've searched but didn't have any luck finding an exact answer to this question. I'm currently a tac officer flying a tac Oddy using antiproton weapons. Right now I'm using the Aegis set but I'm a week or less away from reaching tier 5 Omega reputation and I'm not real clear which set would be better to replace my Aegis set with... Omega or MACO (or something else perhaps?). I would appreciate any opinions.

I'd recommend MACO given that it is a better defense-oriented set. The MACO shield provides some of the best available proteection with its 10% energy weapon damage resistance on top of 15% plasma resists. It also boosts subsystem power as it receives damage. The 2-set bonus also gives a slight-cooldown reduction to all abilities, including consoles.

The Omega set tends to work better with ships running rapid fire / scatter volley cannon builds since its Tetryon Glider effect triggers per hit.

I run the Adapted MACO set myself since I'm already a FED Joined Trill Engineer but keep the MK XII MACO set handy

Hmmm... what is the adapted MACO set? How is it different and how do you get it?

Its the Fed version of the Klingon Honor Guard space set.

You can get it when you finish the Omega rep system.

PS: The Klingons get the adapted KHG space set (Its the Fed MACO set for Klingons)
