Husanakx: do you have a source for the multaplactive thing, i was under the impreshion from other posts that resistance was applied addetivlly. i.e. 125 sheidl power + a 20% EPtS1 bonus, would add upto 55% resistance, (or you taking 44% of total damage)...

p.s. does anyone know the forumlae for natural sheild resistance from power?

Shield resists are multiplicative and the 75% cap works (it even worked when the maco shield was bugged and thus it reduced the total resist from >90% to 75%).

I'm fairly certain that there has been no change in how shield resists stack, but I guess I can go and check it again. It's really easy. Get shot at without EPtS and then repeat it with EPtS and calculate the effective increase in resist. That takes only two shots and makes the combat log really easy to parse.

Ya as far as I know it hasn't changed at all... I highly doubt Bort or anyone else currently there has played with the code that deep. I will admit I am way to lazy to test anything in STO anymore. lol

Okay. intresting results.

1. it is multiplicative. Good to know.

2. Sheild resistance from power @ 125 power is 25%, not 35%.

If somone wants to double check i got it right feel free.

That is very interesting! How did you test, exactly?
