Nope, it would not be. The Shield Emitter Amplifier isn't really only worth putting on extremely regenerative shields. Also, the Shield Emitter Amplifier does not stack as far as I know. I should have tested that as well however.

Ok then, I'll see what I come up with as I've never ran a field generator , only emitter amps and emitter arrays on my engie raptor who almost never needs to use a shield heal.

What shield are you using? As far as I know, Shield Emitter Amplifiers do not stack. The Shield Emitter Arrays improve the Shield Emitter Skill which in turn boosts your Shield Heal Abilities like TSS, EPTS and etc.

KHG with AEGIS engine and deflector. NO it's NOT a PvP build but I've taken inexperienced bug ships PvP with this build, and PvE isn't any challenge at all.

Am speccing my TAC toon for drunks 'dragonflame' build in the fleet vorcha, and I wanna be perpared.

So I bought some more Shield Emitter Amplifiers and found out that they do indeed stack. Now all I have to figure out is if they have diminishing returns.

Initial results in Kerrat with my Nebula Refit have been really good. My shield healing is up and up and my regeneration rate over duration is nice with only an MKXI Maco Shield.

hey the dragonflame is my ship name! Drunk stealin mah names!

You'll have loads of fun with the Fleet Vorcha. In my opinion it's the best Escort the KDF could ever have.

You know, if my main was KDF, I'd use the Vorcha as well! The first time I saw it in TNG I was like wowah, nice ship!

my names arent very imaginative, mostly just my excelsior, or my ktinga. ya dragon fart sounds like a mav name though lol

and yes the fleet vorcha is a big, fat, extra hearty escort that is a ton of fun to blast crap with.

In regards to covariants, a shield emitter is close to useless since it amplifies the regen, and regen for covariants sucks anyways. I wouldn't use any emitter in a slow regen shield, if anything, I'd use a generator. The ultimate healer, such as sci ody, might use for ex omega shield with 2 emitters and 2 amplifiers, I could see that working since you don't want to waste ltc eng boff skill with eps3 (when you can use extend or a2si) that's required almost for a low regen shield.

Keep saying I'll get the fleet vorcha and keep postponing. But I'll be damn if I won't do it in next weeks, build my own dragon fart, lol.
