The Resolute Shield provides Altairian hulls with resistances and defends them from incoming damage. These shields can use the hulls power systems to regenerate even when fully depleted.

General[edit | edit source]

Resolute Shield is a enhanced form of T7 Altairian Shells such as the Spectral Shell that provides increased shield energy and resistance to all three traditional damage types - Energy Damage, Explosive Damage and Kinetic Damage, without vulnerability to non-resistant damage types. It is restricted to Tier 8 Altairian.

Xeno Resolute Shield and Plasma Resolute Shield have very high resistance against Alien Damage and Plasma Damage respectively but both have no resistance to the traditional damage types whatsoever.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

Resolute Shield is plain better than its T7 counterpart, with vastly improved mass efficiency as well as absolute shield energy value, yet carries the same XP value. The same could be said for its elemental versions.

The Resolute Shield does not have the downside of Altairian Shells - vulnerability to non-resistant damage types.

Level I-III Resolute Shields can resist three damage types, making them more versatile than the Spectral Shell, Shockwave Shell and Deflector Shell, which only resist one.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

Resolute Shields lack counter-tech, unlike the Spectral Shell and Shockwave Shell. They also lack the passive shield regeneration of Deflector Shell. Most important of all, they do not have any resistance to Nebula Fields, unlike Altairian Shells.

Resolute Shield II has the worst mass efficiency, so it is not advised to use that in place of level I unless you really need shield energy yet are unable to obtain the level III version.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Resolute Shield is the Tier 8 Shield defense.
  • Despite its description, it's the hull that grants T8 Altairian ships their innate ability to regenerate shields even when fully depleted, not the shields.
  • When first released, Xeno Resolute Shield incorrectly required Blight elements instead of Xeno elements to craft. This was fixed during the late December 2019 downtime.
