The Phase Shifter Generator is a field generator that grants the Paladin Carrier the Phase Shifter Field. It occupies a special slot in the Paladin carrier, a first for a carrier. The Phase Shifter Generator, like the Ion Field Generator are rare to ever see due to how bad shields have become.
Strategy and Setup:
The main advantage the Phase Shifter Field Generator has, is its Phase Shifter Field it projects once equipped on the Paladin Carrier. This is also the advantage the Valkyrie Carrier has pre-built in.
The Phase Shifter Field increases all damage to shields by a large 25%. This can significantly increase the damage dealt through shields, although it is not very much as shields are almost always blasted away in 1 barrage.
It also takes up a special slot, which isn't used much on Carriers, thus, it is not a battle of what to equip in place of the Generator.
Like the Ion Field Generator, it has no place in the current meta. There have been so many new types of powerful armor but the same best shield has been in the game for 2 years. Today's weapons completely demolish the Metaphase Shield III instantly so a boost would not help.
It's easily replaced by the Agility Field Generator, another downside is that it has the same 7 day build time and massive resource cost making it an even poorer choice on the Paladin.
The Phase Shifter Generator should never be equipped to stay very competitive in the game. The Agility Field Generator should be the only generator you try to obtain in the events. Then, always equip THAT on the Paladin.
- The Phase Shifter Field Generator, along with the Agility Field Generator and Ion Field Generator, represent the first in the ability to interchange support fields on a single Carrier.
- The Phase Shifter Generator is considered a terrible generator, but it is slightly better than the Ion Field Generator
- Surprisingly, there is no Stasis Field Generator, which would be more useful than 2 anti-shield generators.
