I've been trying to figure out at what point the shield recharges at it's maximum rate and i wanted some input from everyone here. Some people say around 50%, some people say 20%, I thought it's around 5-10% because the lower your shields are the faster they recharge.

So what the answer then?

its around 33%

Between 25 and 40%

That's about it, and it works the same for shield and cap.

25% for shields. A lot of people think its 30% but it is really 25%. Cap should be the same peak should be 25%.

Awhile ago someone solved the formula for max and I'm fairly sure that it was closer to 33 than 25..

by Entity confirms the peak is closer to 25%. I also did my own testing and got under 30% as peak.

Why ain't shield and cap recharge rates linear?

'Cuz CCP likes its formulas nice and complex.

Probably actually for balance reasons, or to make it interesting for pilots, keeping cap/shield hovering around that max point.

Because they would hit their max recharge rat at 0% capacity. This would make passive shield tanking impossible, and lead to you constantly running out of juice with your capacitor.
