Shields ?
What's the crack with sheilds lately ?

I currently have over 6,000 and a regen of 203 or something like that.

All new sheilds I come accross now seem to be around 1,800 and only 97 regen ?

I am pretty sure in the rep section the other day I was looking at the Assimilated Borg sheilds and was going to make them my next target. They had about 8,000 and a regen of over 300, but now they are 1,900 and only 97 regen !

What is going on ?

i'm not sure, but maybe display bug or more likely...did you change your current ship?

this happens usually if u have a shuttle ready, the new system of having both ship and shuttle "Ready" is full of such bugs

This also happens when you are on the ground, but want to know the stats of space equipment. You have to be in system space for he correct stats.

the only way currently to see if a shield is better then yours is to put your current on your shuttle see what it has then look back at the other shield if your looking at regen and cap its a simple numbers bigger or smaller but by how much on your main ship is unknown till you put the shield your looking at on it buy it choose need ect.

Oh... Nice !

So I ahve probably been getting rid of better stuff than I already have due to bugs ?

loverofwars 12-24-2012 08:46 AM

um well yes possibly
[EDIT] but it is new and will stop you from going to a starbase to change ships if you ever find your self using a shuttle like for the vault operation gamma and vault pve queue

No, the different stats are not due to bugs. It's due to the pop-up information being updated in near real time according to skill levels, bufs and debbuffs in your character. Teh game has different modes of operation. Space (mission) map, Ground (mission) map, Sector Space maps, and Social Ground/Space maps. While on those various maps, certain skills, abilities and equipment are partially or entirely disabled. In Sector Space virtually every skills, abilities and equipment are disabled. So equipment stats won't be entirely accurate. To see space or ground equipment properly, you need to view the pop-up info or /info on a mission map of the appropriate type (Ground for Ground gear and Space for Space gear).

And even then they will appear different to different people. Ships have modifiers on them that affect certain space gear like Escorts having a higher engine modifiers and Science ships having higher shield modifiers. And something that's not readily know is that ships have a modifier that affects weapon damage. The modifier is increases as the Tier of the ship increases.
