Shield Emitters are defensive devices that absorb damage directed at the user by expending electrical energy. The amount absorbed varies depending on the Impact Speed of an attack and the quality of the components used, though all shields generally perform better against higher impact speeds.

Shield Emitters drain energy while active and they must be toggled on/off manually with V or by clicking on their icon on your action bar. They can be easily recharged with B or by shift-clicking on their icon. However, they cannot be recharged in combat without a Shield Recharger combat utility.

Attributes

  • Capacity is the total shield capacity, or hit points, across all impact speeds.
    • Capacity equals energy multiplied by conversion rate.
  • Conversion Rate is shield capacity divided by energy capacity. How many shield capacity points one point of energy gives.
  • Dissipation Rate determines how fast the shield capacity drains away on its own while the shield is active.
  • Shielding is the maximum damage absorbed per hit. Attacks of each impact speed have different shielding amounts. Very low impact speed attacks can bypass shielding partially (knives 60%, fist weapons 80%) or completely (unarmed 100%).
    • Frequency Modulator(s) used in crafting determine the shielding numbers, but shielding is always better against higher impact speeds.
    • Circular Wave Amplifiers increase shielding and decrease conversion rate, resulting in a shield that can take larger hits, but fewer of them.
  • Energy is the energy capacity of the device, how much juice it has in its batteries.
    • Energy core used in crafting determines the energy capacity.

Crafting

Shield Emitter can be crafted with Blueprint: Energy Shield Emitter.

Enhancements

Visually, the hue of the shield effect is determined by the emitter's enhancements. Shields with no enhancements are blue, amplified shields are red, conservative shields are green, and efficient shields are purple.
