2x emerg power to shields?
 
I'm doing some template work for a couple of ships and am wondering what will happen if I put Eemergency Power to Shields I on two different BOFFs. Will I get two buff buttons, or will a single buff go to both of them, or what?

Activating one emergency power will put the other into shared cooldown. Won't matter if its in the same boff or a different one.

You'll get 2 buttons. Clicking a button will start that copy at its full cooldown, while the other copy will go on "shared cooldown". The shared cooldown for Emergency Power abilities is 30 seconds. So you'll click EPTS #1, you will get 30 seconds of buffed shield power and EPTS #1 will go into a 45 second cooldown while EPTS #2 goes into a 30 second cooldown. Because of this, two copies of an Emergency Power ability will guarantee non-stop buffing of that power level.
