If you want to see the effect rather than just hear the stats then numbers, buy a set on sisi, they are only 100isk a pop there. I would say that if you are trying to active tank a gang-link tengu would be a better choice for the price, but There is no reason why you can't have both, if you have the isk.

no, you dont need them, most effective mission ships can be max gank fitted, and still tank missions just fine without the need for crystals, plug in some +5s instead!

As someone who is familiar with these on an intimate level, I would like to say that crystals make any ship immmensely better.

Perhaps it's time to point out the obvious: Crystal implants only increase shield boost amount. So they're not gonna do you any good on your passive Drake, for instance (and no, they do nothing for Invuls, either; nor regen); nor for any ship setup that doesn't use active shield boosting, for that matter. Caveat emptor!

Also, be aware that Crystal implants come with only a +3 attribute bonus. So, ideally you can only use 3 of them for the first five implants slots (using the other 2 for +5 implants), plus maybe the Omega one for slot 6. Unless you're a superveteran, who can afford to keep learning at +3 from now on.

Just sayin', is all.

Just go with the LG-Crystals to be honest. You can pick up an entire set for around $800,000,000.00 compared to $2,500,000,000.00 for a HG-Crystal set. The difference between the two really isn't that significant unless you're running Complex gear and if you're doing that, you're going to die sometime very soon anyway.

To answer your question though, yes - they are absolutely worth it when it comes to shield tanking.
