# 1 increasing my shields
06-02-2012, 12:21 PM
My main toon is an engineer captian, flying a defiant refit. I have the mk12 maco shields and 2 mk 11 field generators. Is there anything I can do to increase my max shields? What other things can I do to increase the survivability of a defiant?

You could invest in Shield System deflector bonuses. And definitely keep moving and maximize your defense at all times.

BOffs with Emergency power to shields, tac team, science team, transfer shield strength and/or reverse shield polarity will also help.

Remember that shield hitpoints is not necessarily the most important factor of your shields. Resistance is just as, if not, more important then high capacity.

You can have 20K shield capacity but if you have no resistance over those hitpoints they will fry away by any good escort in seconds.
