Ok maybe alot of you already knew this but for some reason I never though about it until this morning.

2pc PvP Compat Medic + 2pc PvE Supercommando = +8sec to energy shield for a nice 18sec shield. I wasnt sure that they stacked, but I tested it and they do.

Yea I know a tank pvp who wore 2pc both for the extra shield.

You can also spec into the reduced CD from damage and stuff. It can be very nice.

It's too bad Combat Tech gear looks awful, and you can't transfer the set bonuses. I hate the Combat Tech helmet, and I miss my Ironman outfit.

No need to look ugly in that case. 2 pc combat Medic (helm + other) Combat Medic helm looks sick!
Might as well use suppercommando chest too, that way when you upgrade to War Hero, you can have the matching color for the Red cool look of a real Pyro lol

Yeah, except I have the Combat Tech Gear already. I swapped to it once 1.2 hit. I didn't even bother looking at it outside of stats.

I can upgrade to Combat Tech War Hero gear or I can spend the time getting the Medic gear as well. What I may do is just go back to the Iron man Gear and pull the mods and say forget the set bonuses for now. .5 sec on Carbonite and 15 seconds less on Determination plus 15 percent crit on RP isn't that groundbreaking.

I am already specced in Energy Rebounder and I definitely see the merit in this. Having a 18sec shield every minute or so would be awesome I think.

I agree, plus it would be hilarious to watch the Jugs who try to avoid you during the shield phase wait it out. It also explains a few Tank Vanguards I ran into yesterday whose shield seemed to last forever.

I actually think it is also a good idea for APs and STs, even without Energy Rebounder. For AP, 18sec shield + Stabalize armor + Power Armor + Combust. That's alot of mitigation. I think it beats Combat Tech bonuses. As an AP you are trying to stack PFT, so might as well mitigate damage longer until then.
