# 1 Do things stack?
07-22-2012, 09:46 AM
Since either no one really knows, or apparently relies on old information, I wonder if someone could tell me whether the following consoles stack (which is to say, have their effects compounded):

Shield Emitter Amplifier
RCS Accellerator
Plasma Infuser

Thank You.

Those stack, and are linear (but are additive with skills and other effects - the plasma infuser may say it increases plasma damage by 24%, but only appear to give 8% at first glance because you can almost triple your damage just from skills if you have them maxed out).

Armor consoles stack with diminishing returns - they're loosely set up so that effective HP increases linearly with them. Everything else stacks without diminishing returns. There used to be a third category, shield capacity consoles used to not stack at all, but now do (but took a big effect hit at the same time).

Thx.

So. Shield Emitter Amplifier actually *do* stack? The wiki says they don't; but that must be old info then.

P.S. I wish this game had like an EVE Fitting Tool (for EVE Online), so you can see the actual effects.

Yes, they stack. They used to not to.

For in game details, the best you can do is right click on an item, and select Info. If it's in the exchange or something, just right click it to see the info.

If you already have the item, you can equip it, and watch your stats to see the changes.
