How useful is the Rakata set bonus for tanking? 5% additional shield chance for 2 pieces (with Ward up) and 2% less damage for 4 pieces.
I absolutely hate the look of the gear and it makes me cry. So I want to put my mods into some adaptive gear. While the shell bonuses are statistically helpful I know, I am wondering if I would really notice the difference making the switch.
Very useful. Do as i did, take the headgear and hide it, keep the chest you like, and go for endgame with the rest. Boots and gloves are rather plain so no issues with them.
5% shield and 2% damage reduction are actually rather neat as far as gear bonuses go.
