The Automated Defense Screens is a passive ability available to the Hur'q Vedcrid Hive Dreadnought Carrier.

Basic information[]

  • Profession: Any
  • Locale: Space
  • Ability type: Passive, Resistance, Immunity
  • Game description: Automated Defense Screens is active at all times while in Combat. Each directional shield facing has a chance to add a stack of Automated Defense every few seconds when you receive damage from that direction, and each stack grants the starship increased All Damage Resistance Rating to further damage being received from that same direction. Once sufficient stacks are obtained along that quadrant, the ship becomes briefly invulnerable to damage coming from that direction. Once this immunity period expires, there is a lockout period before any additional Automated Defense stacks may be obtained for that directional shield facing. Each shield facing (front, rear, left, and right) has its own independent stacking resistances, and lockout periods.
