General

The Ion Field Generator is a field generator that grants a carrier the Ion Field. It is restricted to the Paladin Carrier.

The Harmonic Ion Field Generator additionally grants a Harmonic Warfare buff for the whole fleet.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

The Ion Field Generator enables your ships to shred through enemy shields with a significant 30% bonus to shield damage. This is particularly effective against those who use heavy shields such as the Harmonic Exophase Shield.

Disadvantages

Not many people use shields on their Xeno Division Hulls and A.X.I.S. Hulls due to the horrible repair time. Alien Hulls also lack shields entirely. As a result, this generator seldom gets the opportunity to perform. To add insult to injury, the -7% health damage actually decreases your firepower against unshielded ships, although this is partially compensated by the Harmonic Warfare bonus provided by the Harmonic Ion Field Generator.

The Ion Field Generator has an insane build time of 7 days; whether this is worth the extra damage is up to you.

Its Harmonic version takes an extra 2 days for a measly +2 Harmonic bonus, which can be compensated by equipping the Harmonic Beam Capacitor for roughly half the duration. However, if you want to achieve maximum Harmonic Warfare, the Harmonic Ion Field Generator should be used.

This special has an insane XP value; not desirable if you plan to build a medium-level Paladin Carrier.

Trivia

  • The Harmonic Ion Field Generator received a change in the sprite to avoid confusion with the normal Ion Field Generator.
  • Surprisingly, there is no Stasis Field Generator.
