General[edit | edit source]
The Phase Drain Buffer is a Pharmakon-Exclusive Special that reduces the drain rate of Phase Screens, at the cost of a longer Phase Charge time.
Note that this special can be stacked with as other specials that affect Phase Drain and/or Phase Charge, including itself.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
The Antithesis to the Phase Charge Relay, the Phase Drain Buffer reduces the drain rate of Phase screens, allowing ships to remain in Phased State for a much longer time. This gives players more time to position their ships and thus outmaneuver their opponents before the Phase wears off.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
The Charge Rate of Phase Screens is reduced (even to a larger degree), thus Pharmakon Hulls are also somewhat more vulnerable, as they will take longer to enter Phase State with this special.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Phase Drain buffer does the opposite of the Phase Charge Relay, decreasing Phase Screen Drain at the cost of a lower Charge Rate.
- The Phasing revamp during early November 2019 drastically reduced the nominal Phase Charge/Drain modifiers of Phase Drain Buffer because their effects now stack across the whole fleet instead of just a single ship.
