Full Set of CRYSTAL implants

Full Set of CRYSTAL implants Is working with passsive tanks or only active ones ?

(Rivr Luzade) #2

Only active, as the description clearly says:

Secondary Effect: 1% bonus to shield boost amount

Passive tank is shield recharge, which is a different thing.

For passive shield regeneration you can use 2 implants which go into slot 7 and 9 (no not a pun).
Zainou ‘Gnome’ Shield Operation 90x (where x is a value between 1 and 6)

Zainou ‘Gnome’ Shield Management 70x (where x is a value between 1 and 6)

You can get the 1, 3 and 5% implants at most NPC station LP stores in highsec empire space and the 2, 4 and 6% implants come from the CONCORD LP store, which require you to run incursions.

The former implant decreases the time it takes you shield to regenerate at around 23-30-ish % by a factor of 1-6% and the latter implant increases your overall shield hp in raw hit-points by a factor of 1-6%.

The way how shield regeneration works is that higher raw hit-points will increase the amount per time shield hp regenerate at the same amount of time.

Say you have 10.000 raw hp shield hit-points and a theoretical ship regenerates from zero hit-points to full hit-points in 100 seconds.
This would suggest that your shields always regenerate the same amount of hit-points but the reality is that the regeneration begins slowly and at around 18% is becomes really fast until around 33% hit-points.
If you increase your hit-points and keep your regeneration time, the overall hit-point regeneration increases too.

So the former implants increases the hit-points and the latter implants decreases the time of the full regeneration, so both decrease the time it takes for your shields to regenerate.

Just wait for the shield slaves CCP is going to release in a few decades!

(NotTheSmartestCookie) #5

Shield slaves coming to a NEX store near you!

I wish there was an implant set that boosts passive shield recharge. It would be much more balanced than the promised and already mentioned shield slaves.

Shield slaves would be OP because of the way regen works. I don’t think CCP plans to make any more implants that would effect passive regent as it could be game breaking.
