Damage resists, Shields and Armour Consoles
 
Two quick questions if anyone can help me out:

1: Do armour consoles apply their resistance to shields and hull or only the hull?
2: If they apply to both, will shields with resistance built in suffer from a diminished return when you also have armour consoles equipped?

Thanks in advance for anyone who can clear this up for me.

1.) Armor Consoles only provide damage resistance (with diminishing returns) to the Hull.

2.) See above... Shields do not derive resistance from armor or abilities that grant "Damage Resistance", they gain 'Damage Reduction' from your Shield Power level (at a rate of 1% per 5 points of Shield Power), and from powers that "Reduce Damage to Shields by +X% for # of seconds", e.g. Emergency Power to Shields, Transfer Shield Strength, etc.

Hope that helps,
