Hey, sometimes when i'm fighting in space, just as I'm about to launch an attack (PvE) some sort of field appears around the ship i'm fighting, rendering it Immune to all attacks - by the time i check the debuff bar to see what its called, it's gone. Anyone know what skill it is, and if it's available to players?
Some enemies in cruisers have the skill Metaphasic shield, it makes them completely invulnerable to any attacks for a few seconds, and it has a long cooldown, they only use it once or twice per combat (depending how long it lasts of course)
Subnucleonic beam increases the cooldown of the targets abilities and removes their buffs
What is SubNuc beam? What do you mean by Metaphasic shield? Is it RSP?
Sorry just want clarification on this and just to learn more about the game.
Metaphasic shield is an ability carried by a small few NPCs that you can encounter while doing star cluster missions. It lasts a little over 5 seconds (the exact number escapes me) and causes the caster to become 100% immune to all damage and debuffs for it's duration.
Subnucelonic Beam (often called SNB), is an ability that is specific to Science captains that clears all buffs on your target and increases their cooldown.
RSP, short for Reverse Shield Polarity, is an engineering bridge officer skill that you cast on yourself that causes all energy damage that you take to be converted into your shield strength (i.e. your enemies energy weapons recharge your shields for you).
