Did you see it resisting the hull damage in the combat log, or just stacking the plasma icon on the shield res? Or did it stack a DIFFERENT icon on the shield res. I've seen a radiation icon up there. This is why I ask.
That would be some good info to have maybe you could post back later.
If I recall, it said Plasma fire or something similar, indicating the DOT. I don't have plasma weapons, only the embassy sci consoles with +plasma. So, what we saw was 5 stacks of Phaser resistance and 5 stacks of Plasma fire.
Combat log did not differentiate. According to my fleet mate, in the span of two EPtS, there was phaser damage (my weapon type), 7k in kinetic damage (from the Omega T4 passive), and 2k in plasma damage (from the Embassy +plasma consoles). This was without buffs.

Right, but what I'm saying is that the plasma DOT from the +plasma embassy consoles, was being applied to the shields, hence the resistance stack.
I was under the impression that the plasma fire happens on the hull, not the shields. My fleet mate was not running the Aegis set.
Was it a case that the DoT was actually being applied to the shields - or - that the DoT being applied to the hull was triggering resistance on the shields?
Damage being done to Y, but stacking Resist on X.
That sort of thing...
So that not only was the damage from the weapon causing resists to stack, but the DoT that wasn't hitting the shields causing it stack faster...
It's possible it was being applied to the hull and triggering the resistance on the shields. But, I don't see how....the shield resistance should be kicking in when there's damage to the shields, not the hull.
We didn't really check to see where the damage was being applied. It was more of a comparison on the differences between the Elite shields and the MACO shields were.
If the DOT is being applied to the hull and just triggering a resistance on the shields, then that I think that is great. It means it's stacking against something that it can't do anything about, and stacking less resistance to my phasers.
