Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngMemory.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 2x
Isk.png Price: 80k ISK
Icon skillbook2.png Prerequisites: Power Grid Management III; Science II
Icon skillbook2.png I required for: Tech 1 and Faction Remote Shield Boosters

Icon skillbook2.png V required for: Capital Remote Shield Booster II; Icon skillbook2.png Capital Shield Emission Systems
Notes.png Notes: Shield emission systems repair other ships' shields. This skill is important for anyone planning to fly the Scimitar or Basilisk shield logistics ships.



Icon skillbook2.png Shield Management

Skill at regulating a spaceship's shield systems. 5% bonus to shield capacity per skill level.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngMemory.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 3x
Isk.png Price: 170k ISK

Icon skillbook2.png I required for: Tech 1 and Faction Shield Boost Amplifiers
Icon skillbook2.png V required for: Shield Boost Amplifier II; Icon skillbook2.png Capital Shield Operation
Notes.png Notes: A basic shield support skill (remember that an increase in shield capacity also increases the amount of shield hitpoints you recharge every second) which is an uncomfortably long train to V. But it is worth training to V in the long run. Level V is required for T2 Shield Boost Amplifiers.



Icon skillbook2.png Shield Operation

Skill at operating a spaceship's shield systems, including the use of shield boosters and other basic shield modules. 5% reduction in shield recharge time per skill level.

Icon skillbook2.png V required for: X-Large Shield Booster II; Icon skillbook2.png Capital Shield Operation; Icon skillbook2.png Caldari Defensive Systems
Notes.png Notes: Important shield support skill, especially for passive regeneration shield tanks.



Icon skillbook2.png Shield Upgrades

Skill at installing shield upgrades e.g. shield extenders and shield rechargers. 5% reduction in shield upgrade powergrid needs.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngMemory.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 2x
Isk.png Price: 84k ISK
Icon skillbook2.png Prerequisites: Science I; Power Grid Management II
Icon skillbook2.png I required for: Tech 1 and Faction Shield Extenders; Tech 1 and Faction Shield Resistance Amplifiers
Icon skillbook2.png III required for: Small Shield Extender II; Tech 1 and Faction Shield Rechargers
Icon skillbook2.png IV required for: Shield Recharger II; Tech 2 Shield Resistance Amplifiers; Medium/Large/Capital Shield Extender II
Notes.png Notes: A useful fitting skill, makes squeezing some of the equipment used in shield tanking onto your ship easier.



Icon skillbook2.png Tactical Shield Manipulation

Skill at preventing damage from penetrating the shield, including the use of shield hardeners and other advanced shield modules. Reduces the chance of damage penetrating the shield when it falls below 25% by 5% per skill level, with 0% chance at level 5.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngMemory.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 4x
Isk.png Price: 210k ISK
Icon skillbook2.png Prerequisites: Power Grid Management III
Icon skillbook2.png I required for: Tech 1 and Faction Shield Hardeners
Icon skillbook2.png III required for: Capital Flex Shield Hardeners
Icon skillbook2.png IV required for: Tech 2 Shield Hardeners
Icon skillbook2.png V required for: Icon skillbook2.png Invulnerability Core Operation
Notes.png Notes: When your shields fall below 25% hitpoints damage begins to leak through to armor. This skill stops that happening. The exact mechanism of the 'leaking', and the consequent use or uselessness of Tactical Shield Manipulation, are subject to pedantic and rather irrelevant arguments; you need this skill trained to IV to use T2 active shield hardeners, so train it to IV and then forget about it.



Icon skillbook2.png Thermal Shield Compensation

5% bonus to thermal resistance per level for Shield Amplifiers
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngMemory.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 2x
Isk.png Price: 120k ISK
Icon skillbook2.png Prerequisites: Shield Operation IV
Notes.png Notes: This and the other three 'X Shield Compensation' skills (not to be confused with simple Shield Compensation) are low priority skills since they only benefit passive shield hardeners, which are very rarely used.
