# 1 Shield consoles?
04-12-2012, 08:03 PM
Ok so I know some changes were made to the shield consoles. What happened and what's the current "good" build in regards to those? Borg shields and MACO shields on my dread and oddy.

Field Generators have gone through several changes.

First they where unique and 35%. This was a bit OP, and you need one on every ship.

Next they where accidently made to stack and this was completely broken.

Finally they fixed this by continuing to allow them to stack and making them 18%

Although I doubt we will ever get an answer many people wish they where Unique again.

There are also rumours of them now having Diminishing returns.

There are diminishing returns when you stack them.

Seems that they just add their 18% to some basic shield value.
I have following numbers (shield - num of consoles):
11839 - 0
13432 - 1
14970 - 2
16508 - 3
18046 - 4
So every console just add ~1540 shield...

*Added:They became a bit OP when they were (indirectly) allowed to be stacked, and were used in PvP at a higher rate of use than before

Before that happened, they were unique as a singular item and it was fine.*

So for my tanking cruisers I'm thinking stack all field generators or should I stack all emitter amplifiers? I want to tank like crazy so which shield should I use? I run 3pc Borg and should I run borg shield, MACO, aegis, or pantrinic or reman?

Personally i prefer to make as much shield as possible. With those insanely hard hitting borg torpedoes more shield is aways better as it will protect you from bare hull torpedo hits, which are deadly.
And with regen you can rely on high shield power and BO skills.
So MACO shield + field generators IMO.

Yes I do think unique and 35% was a bit OP. it was pretty much mandatory to have one on any ship build. It needed a reduction. When they became stackable at 35% that was completely OP.

I truly wish they where still a Singular item even at 18%
