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.
