The Tachyon Particle Field ability taunts and reduces damage dealt and taken, before rendering the user unable to attack or be attacked for a short time. It is generated by the [Console - Universal - Tachyon Particle Field Emitter], which is obtained with the Sutherland Research Vessel, Naj’sov Research Vessel or Laeosa Research Warbird.

Basic Information[edit | edit source]

  • Profession: Any
  • Locale: Space
  • Game Description: Activating this console's ability will cause your starship to emit a densely packed field of tachyons around your ship in a large radius. These particles interact with the shield of foes and allies differently. Foes within this field's radius will suffer dramatic shield damage and a lingering shield hardness debuff. Allies within this field will receive shield regeneration and a shield hardness buff. Upon expiration of this field, a final tachyon particle pulse will be emitted that will deal a more powerful version of the effects listed above.
