Strategy and Setup:
A clear and obvious advantage the Spectral Shield has is its 90% resistance to Energy weapons. This allows it to resist many popular early and mid game weapons like the Thermal Beam, Polaron Ray, or also the ECHO Ray which can be very powerful.
It also has the most energy capacity out of all the 3 Miner Rebellion Shields allowing it to be more effective against other damage types aswell as when fired on by another type of damage it still resists, but much less in percentage.
However, due to only having a 90% resistance against energy weapons, weapons like the Vector Torpedo, Gladius Driver, and AP Driver will devastate the shield incredibly fast, and due to how unpopular energy weapons are becoming this is very common.
Being the highest energy, it will also be the heaviest one to equip. This can take up very crucial mass on a cruiser or battleship which could be used for weapons. Its also easily surpassed by the Metaphase Shield III.
Either Spectral Shields or Shockwave Shields should be equipped in PvP and always levels IV and V on your hull due to how important shields are in the lower regions.
Usually 1 shield hulls should equip level V, while double shielded hulls should try to equip dual level V or a level V and a level IV.
- Originally when the ECHO Ray dominated the game along with the Metaphase Shields old 80% resistance, this shield was the most used one in the game.
- After the Metaphase Shield gained a 90% resistance it was still used as Metaphase III was very heavy, though soon it phased out with the release of higher end hulls.
- Its obvious, but the Spectral Shield's base counterpart is the Spectral Field.
