currently running lvl 4s in raven. wanted to kno what the penalties are for using more than one shield hardeners for the same attribute. i.e. using two explosion dampening field hardeners (t2).

2nd is 87% effective
3rd is 54% effective

something like that.

First off. Hardeners are not additive, they're divisive.
Every hardener divides the remaining incoming damage by a certain number.

On top of that there is the stacking penalty. Your most powerful effect on a single stat is 100% effective. The second most powerful is roughly 87% effective. The third most powerful is something like 57% effective. The 4th is 28% effective and the 5th is just 10.5% effective.

If you want to know the specifics I recommend looking up Aenigma's guide to stacking (it's called something like that).

i guess my real question is whether it si better to use 2 shield hardeners or 1 shield hardeners and a resistance amplifier

Two hardeners would be better. The amp will be stacking penalized just like an additional hardener would, not to mention giving much less resistance in the first place.
