General

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

The Harmonic Phase Shifter Generator additionally grants a Harmonic Siege buff for the whole fleet.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

The Phase Shifter Generator increases the shield penetration of your ships, limiting the effectiveness of enemy shields. In some cases, you can even destroy targets before their shields go offline, saving you some damage output.

It is an excellent counter to poorly-designed Bastion Cruisers. If they have too much shielding, you can take them out without activating their Firestorm Overdrive, especially when you are using weapons and other specials that increase shield bypass.

Disadvantages

Most Xeno Division Hulls and A.X.I.S. Hulls, as well as all Alien Hulls, are well-armored and have no shields, making the extra shield bypass completely useless. The Harmonic version does not synergize well with base attack fleets because modules typically have much more armor than shields, so the shield bypass portion is wasted.

The Phase Shifter Generator has an insane build time of 7 days; whether this is worth the extra shield bypass 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 Siege Casing for roughly half the duration. However, if you want to achieve maximum Harmonic Siege, the Harmonic Phase Shifter 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 Phase Shifter Generator received a change in the sprite to avoid confusion with the normal Phase Shifter Generator.
  • Surprisingly, there is no Stasis Field Generator.
