General[edit | edit source]

Pharmakon Screens are a form of defense used by the Pharmakon. They provide an additional layer of protection, with resistance against a particular damage type.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

Screens are the main form of defense for the Pharmakon Hulls, much like Ablation is for Umbra Hulls, and Shields are for Altairians. For more information, see the Screens page.

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).

Having resistance against Explosive weapons, Shockwave Screens are best used against ships armed with weapons like Sai Missile, or Nova Missile.

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]

  • The release notes for the late April 2019 update revealed that Pharmakon Screens (except Blight Screens) additionally had a hidden stat that gave them 50% resistance to Blight damage. This has since been made visible.
  • The Shockwave Screen was granted immunity to Explosive Nebula Fields in the late April 2019 update.
  • 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.
  • Shockwave Screen has received immunity to Plasma and Blight Nebula Fields in the early November 2019 update.
