Hello, i am not sure if i am understanding the skill properly.

Does the Tactical Shield Manipulation skill help even if i fly an armor tanked ship without any shield either passive or active hardeners, Invulnerability Fields?

You will always have some amount of shield, it won't be a whole lot but everything helps. So even for devout armor tankers it's smart to have at least some of the shield skills but I wouldn't put them early in my skill training list. Once you start running out of "must train NOW" skills you might have a look at them.

That is indeed a confusing skill and often asked about.

Check this thread for a good explanation of that and some other strange skills.

Go to EVE-Search.COM and search the skill forum for several threadnaughts on the topic of TSM and TSM 5.

It is a hotly debated topic.

Basically its a skill that tries to prevent your ship shields into becoming swiss cheese at the period of low shields. If you don't have this skill then there is a 25% probability that when you get hit again when having 25% shields it will also hit armor and structure a bit. Level 5 of this skill totally eliminates that problem.

At lvl 4 of this skill, you can get Invulnerability Field IIs, which give of course an active boost to all resistances in the shield and armor,hull too. More for shield though. Almost like a damage control.


Eh.. invul fields only affect the shields.

I don't what I was thinking. Everything else applies though. Thanks.

That's incorrect. The probability that some damage will be applied to the armour has been shown to be much smaller than 25%; it's more in the range of 3% to 5%. There is no evidence the skill changes the chance of damage to armour - what the skill does is change the point at which this chance starts occurring (as explained in the link above).
