The Resist Shield does not prevent damage while active but instead mitigates it, as a result it is not adversely affected by damage received, making its sustained operational duration limited only by the size and efficiency of the power source. The Resist Shield does not stack with the bonus from Nanoweave or Flak armor. It provides 35% resistance to damage when active.
Hints & Tips Edit
It is important to note that 35% damage reduction is not 35% more health. It is equivalent to taking only 65% damage, which nearly doubles your effective health.
Use the following formula: Effective Health = Current Health / 0.65
Ex: If activating Resist Shield at full health: 1000 / 0.65 = 1538 effective health.
Ex: If activating Resist Shield after losing shields: 500 / 0.65 = 769 effective health.
This makes Resist Shield a stronger option than Nanite Mesh Generator or Adrenaline Shield if activated at the start of an engagement, but weaker if activated when already damaged.
