I'm 23 days off finishing my Int/Mem spec and re-mapping to Perception/Will.
My Tactical Shield Manipulation is currently at level 4 as per the advice on this forum from years ago. Is that advice still relevant? Do I leave it a level 4 or take it to level 5 before I re-map?

There are some niche uses where you need the skill at V.
If you have not run into those conditions already, then chances are you don't need the extra training.
That, coupled with the sound arguments that recommend keeping it at IV, and I'd say there's no *bad choice*.

I'd say move on to whatever you like next.
Worst case, you can train it a little slower some other day.
Slow train time will only add about 5 days to it.

Most important question - do you plan on flying a rorqual with this pilot - if so you want it to V as its a pre-req for the skill to use the PANIC module.

No plans on the (event) horizon to step into a Rorqual.

Thanks for the input lads. Looks like I'll keep TSM at level 4 and move on.

For the most part V is irrelevant. Tbh I hate the skill as each level actively hurts shield tanking. I would much rather damage bleed into armor at 25% to hold me as close to recharge as rng would give me even if for just a few seconds.


But from IV to V there is no more real harm just not really worth it either
