bleedthrough technically isnt good ever

but depending on how you play is which shield you should go with

if you absolutely hate bleedthrough go with one that has only 5% bleedthrough

i personally love the regenerative shields that regenerate a decent amount more every cycle compared to others but im flying an escort at only lt commander 5

Bleedover isn't as much of an issue when it come to Cruisers. They have more hull then other ships, larger crews for faster repair rate, access to more and bettter hull heals, and more Engineering Console slots which can hold more Armor Consoles.

Though you should start a new thread. This one is over a year and a half old.

With enough ships focusing you, even if with 100% shield resists across the board, you will die from bleed through.

P.S. What I'd like to know is if Reverse Polarity still takes bleed through damage.


Reverse Shield Polarity does not negate the bleedthrough.

Also, if any abilities or weapons are used to increase shield penetration, then the amount done to shields is reduced and the amount against hull is increased. Say an attack has 50% bleed through. It's only going to do half damage to shields.

Regardless of the weapon used though, Reslient shields will always make 5% of an attack disappear. Although, it won't work if the shields are down or if the shields are the only thing being attacked. Certain abilities and weapons do extra against shields and nothing to hull.

In addition, bleed through damage ignores shield resists and only accounts for hull resists.
So Resilient shields don't take less shield damage? Shield bleed through is almost negligible. So if you don't have to worry about bleed through, you should avoid Resilients like the plague?

When you've got several enemies pounding on your shields the bleed-through damage for a science ship can be brutal. Reducing that damage by 50% is nothing to sneeze at when you're playing a ship with lower hull strength than any other ship in the game.

It's my way of promoting the idea of non-humanoid alien characters for STO. Not all cool aliens have skeletons!
