General[edit | edit source]
The Blight Screen is a form of defense used by the Pharmakon. It provide an additional layer of protection, with resistance against Blight damage.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
In terms of specialization against a particular damage type, Screens are the middle ground between Altairian Shells (which are very strong against one damage type but have negative resistance against other damage types) and Ablative Armor (which only have mediocre resistance but can apply to a variety of damage types)
Shield Bypass effects do not affect Screens, thus cutting down on repair time when fighting against enemies with high shield bypass (e.g. Eclipse Drivers).
Blight Screens, having resistance against Blight Weapons, are best used against Umbra Hulls with Blight Weapons like Blight Nova Cannon, Blight Nova Missile, Blight Atomic Driver or Blight Havoc Cannon.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
While in Phase State, ships are unable to interact with the outside world and thus cannot attack.
They lack the capability to recharge during combat, unlike Altairian Shells (which can be achieved through the Regeneration Converter) and Ablative Armor (simply by dealing damage to enemy Health).
Once the Screen is depleted, ships are no longer able to use Phasing and are fully vulnerable to damage.
Ship Screens can only be equipped to Screen slots. It goes without saying that they are exclusive to Pharmakon Hulls, especially since only they have Screen slots.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Originally, ships with Blight Screen glowed green. Since the late May 2019 update, they now glow yellow.
- The Phasing revamp during early November 2019 reduced the Screen Energy and repair time of all T7 Screens by 75%. Screen Defense has been reduced to 85% (when not in Phase State). Phase Screen Charge has been buffed slightly from 1/6th of Screen Energy to 17%. Phase Threshold has been removed.
- Blight Screen has received immunity to Plasma Nebula Fields in the early November 2019 update.
- All Screens were given 25% extra Screen Energy and 5% extra Defense in the late February 2020 update.
