Strategy Edit

Spectral Shields are the first shield type that players unlock. They boast the greatest shield strength in comparison to other shields that can be researched, but also the highest mass of the three shields. They are a common shield to be equipped on ships, especially on high level fleets because of their extensive energy reserves in comparison with other shields. They have a 50% resistance against energy type weapons, hence they can absorb twice as much energy damage indicated in their shield energy.

As the name implies, the Spectral shield is designed to absorb energy damage, making it an excellent shield to use when dealing with close-range energy weapons such as the Pulse rays, Disruptor rays and Thermal beam. It is also an excellent way to protect your ships against ships bearing long-range energy weapons, such as destroyers using Impulse beams paired with focused optics V, or battleships using ECHO rays with focused optic V, both of which can inflict an high amount of damage without risk of missing.

This shield is also the go-to shield when blitzing an enemy base. As it will allow your ships to soak up laser fire from Thermal ray turrets, Tachyon beam turrets, as well as other dangerous close-range turrets.

In fleet combat, the Spectral shield is a powerful shield when dealing with the common energy weapons fleet. Energy type weapons are most prevalent in these fields and as such Spectral shields are most ideal in absorbing the damage.

However at high level combat, the Metaphase shield is superior to the Spectral shield in many aspects because of its versatility. It protects against all damage types, making it a universally important shield in fleet, as it becomes increasingly common to encounter enemy fleets using different weapon types.

This shield is still considered one of the most useful shields, due to it's high shield strength and ability to tank heavy amounts of energy damage.
