Starship Elite STF Builds & Pics (Season 7)

I don't do KDF yet, so I can only speak fed. Correct, in my experience the Borg XII set is best for escorts due to its high shield regeneration, coupled with the hull and shield procs. For cruisers and sci ships, with their relatively high shield modifiers, make great use of the MACO sets. On my Vesta Adapted MACO has a huge initial shield value which, with Vesta's consoles and Boff powers, translates into time to react when under fire.
Just wondering, are cruisers good for tac officers ? I wanna try a beam boat on my tac odyssey ( again ), as for now I'm running a fleet patrol escort, with :
Fore: 3 Plasma MKXII DHCs, 1 plasma torpedo launcher MKXII
Aft: 2 Plasma Turret Dmgx2 MKXII + KCB
I based my build on the Hilbert Guide btw ( section PvE Escort )

I'm very pleased with my Ody tac build as a tactical captain.
2xfleet plasma BA, 1xfleet DBA 1xfleet quantum launcher
1xRomulan experimental BA, 1xfleet plasma BA, cutter, 1xRomulan plasma launcher
All 3 Ody consoles
Adapted Maco space set
Embassy Threat console +plasma damage
With all the bonuses she does almost 20% over standard plasma damage AND has a 55K hull. Pretty decent for a tac captain.

What sort of space sets are do you recommend for escorts? Just got tier IV Omega rep and a shiny new HEC last night.. Time to trick it out and start doing elites...

Standard would be something like.. 2 piece Borg, Maco shields. It's a solid all rounder.

For escorts nothing has worked as well as the Borg 3-piece for me. XI or XII. The 3-piece set bonuses are perfect for escort-style fighting, at least the way I do it. Don't forget to try the Omega weapon set too.

I'm a fan of Omega stuff - but only if you're investing in other shield stripping tools like Tetryons, Tractor Beam Doffs, flow capacitors, and the like. If you aren't, general wisdom suggests other sets for the defensive bonus.

The Omega set, meaning the torp, cutter and assimilated console are a standalone proposition. The Omega set works great on my plasma F-TER, and that "wisdom" is based on 100's of hours of playtime.

*Shudders at the amount of grinding to be done...*
So for now Im thinking the 3 piece Omega, MACO shield and 2 piece borg deflector and impulse..
This could take a while...
