Hey guys,

I have a question about Shield Maintenance Drones and what they do, now, I know that they repair the shields of the targeted ship, but, you can not target your own ship, so what i want to know is if i do missions and the like with a 3 man fleet, and each person tasks their Drones to someone else, will they all heal at the same rate? What rate do they heal at? And is this effective? I dont want to train the skill if i can't work it in that way is all, please let me know.

The 'repiar drone' skill increases the drones rep amount and T2 do more again....
You would find more use out of a flight of combat drones tho as theyre rep amount is minimal. I find them useful after a fight for touching up before going in again... and repairing other drones (armour usually)

It's not really worth it. In missions more DPS means you'll take less damage over the course of the mission, so combat drones are your best bet. Even a flight of lights is better than those.

It's not effective. The rep amount is just too low unless you go with really high resist profile against the damage you will take but it's still ususally not worth it. They are better used as backup reps in fleet for the tank you didn't bring dedicated logi for (armore drones for shield fleet and shield drones for armor fleet.).
