Ah, thank you for the succinct clarification.

Displayed damage is, of course, the running total of all applicable bonuses.

These consoles would add to the base damage, as you say.

I assume the same principle applies to other consoles that increase things by percentages.

Thus, some thing that improves shield emitters +12% applies to the base shields, not a percentage of the final bonus amount.

Leading to a somewhat lower than as expected bump, if you didnt know what was happening.

Thank you all for the help in understanding this.
