General[edit | edit source]
The Siege Casing boosts Kinetic weapons by accelerating projectiles and increasing damage to modules, while additionally providing a small amount of Kinetic-resistant health. It is restricted to T6 destroyers and above.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
Siege Casings are most suited for sniping, enabling your destroyers to deal more damage to enemy modules while also being able to sustain against long-range Kinetic base weapons.
Siege Casings are also useful in fleet combat; the increased projectile speed acts like Iridium Magnets, vastly improving the accuracy of your weapons.
This special has many bonuses yet takes up almost no mass, making it a great choice for your destroyers.
Note that it cannot be stacked with other Siege Casing variants, unlike the Beam Capacitor.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
The bonus health has a horrible 1:1 repair to health ratio, considering that other Xeno Division Technologies have that at 0.5 or lower. This means that equipping this special will significantly harm your ships' repair efficiency.
The Harmonic Siege Casing is more efficient except in fleet combat or when you only have one ship equipped with this special.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Siege Casing was not unlocked to Umbra and Pharmakon when the respective factions were released. This was fixed in the late February 2019 update.
- Along with other T6 equipment, this item's build time was significantly reduced during the late April 2019 update as summarized here.
