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 40% resistance to damage when active.
Hints & Tips Edit
It is important to note that 40% damage reduction is not 40% more health. It is equivalent to taking only 60% damage, which nearly doubles your effective health.
Use the following formula: Effective Health = Current Health / 0.60
Ex: If activating Resist Shield at full health: 1000 / 0.60 = 1667 effective health.
Ex: If activating Resist Shield after losing shields: 500 / 0.60 = 833 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.
|Duration||7(?) sec (15 sec Max Lv)|
|Stacks||Partial (Flak armor increases the resistance to 50% from 45%. Nanoweave does not provide any benefit.)|
|Penalty||Reduces Movement Speed by 25%|
Note: All ability levels reduce incoming damage by 40%, leveling up the ability increases it's duration.
