I brushed up on advent by making guardians work by putting them in there own fleet and turning auto attack off. It was easy and they could be right next to the main fleet auto-casting shield projection while i manually cast the guardians which were idle. It worked wonders and i saw my fleet survival rate increase.
After countless games using this combination i came to love the guardian because it could really never cancel out of shield projection with this technique.
So i was like-why not the domina... Would i be the first to really make them work properly. So i made a third subfleet per main fleet with 4 domina's. They tailed behind the main fleets being located just within the shield bubble with auto-attack off and auto-cast on:
Result: they were just sitting there. They were facing the whole fleet and they didnt cast a single preserverance regen.
As my caps health slowly droped i had no choice but to manually activate perseverance.. so is that it? We have to manually do it? So disappointing that the auto-cast feature is a waste of time even when there facing the whole fleet.
Assumption: Being behind the main fleets i thought they would be facing there targets and pick any ship and repair it with auto-cast.
I can't micro too much esp with an empty stomach. I'll have to stick to repair platforms ,vertigo and deceptive illusion as bonus to shield projection for defensive purposes.
