Which would be more effective at absorbing damage? A VM-15 Multispec, or a Large Clarity Ward Booster?

The MV-15 will reduce dmg by these percentages based on Maller shields:

40% EM
32% Thermal
24% kinetic
16% Explosive

The Large Clarity replenishes ~30 2/3 shield HP per second.

im not shure but i think the multys drain ur cap like hell, aboute 3sek 50cap so i woldnt use them. Thats more than all my gunns do in the same amount of time. I think ppl with porj weapons are the only 1ns that can use multys.
I just use 2 70% to thermal/emp 12sek 20cap and most gundam in my space are emp/thermal based.

Clarity uses more cap than the VM-15. =0 But this is assuming one is using proj, so it is the only thing draining cap. I got about 50-60 seconds out of the clarity b4 cap dies.

Calculation job for storeslem!!


as I now know the exact stats on the large clarity ward, :P

80 cap
92 shield
3.4 seconds

27.1 shield per second
23.5 cap per second
1,15 shield per cap


the multispectral thing uses 50 cap every 3 seconds, or 16,6666 per sec.

The multispectral shield reduces all damages by 40% (drop natural resistances, they have no effects but makes it sound difficult).

For the effect of the multispectral shield to equal the effect of the clarity ward, 27.1 shield per second, you need to sustain 75 damage per second (without a shield hardener), as 27.1 / 0.4 = 67.75. More than 67.75 damage per second, and the multispectral is more effective.

However it might be that your capacitor is more precious than time (in most npc fights this is true). The clarity ward heals 1.15 shields per cap, and we know the multispectral use 16.66 cap/sec. 16.66cap/sec * 1.15 shields/cap = 19.2 shields/sec.
Then we do 19.2 / 0.4 = 48. You have to sustain 48 damage per sec (without a shield hardener) for the multispectral to be more effective.

UPDATED :]

btw what shield skills are affecting shield boosters ?

this is for PvP, NPC fights are trivial here. (at least for me) BTW, VM-15 uses 50 cap every 3 seconds, not 40. so 16.666.. instead of 13.333...

You just have to find out if its more important to get most shields per sec or most shields per cap. But anyways, at higher damage amounts the Multispectral is clearly best.
