Skills and Attributes

The following skills will affect this combat art:

  • Warding Energy Lore - will increase total shield energy points and improve the Block Warding Energy value (amount of damage that the shield will absorb). Increases shield regeneration rate when mastered (applies out-of-combat only, the shield will never regenerate in-combat).
  • Revered Technology Lore - increases the Damage Mitigation (Block Warding Energy value) of Warding Energy if the Block mod is chosen, improves casting speed, allows for modification points.

The following attributes will affect this combat art:

  • Stamina reduces regeneration penalty.

Usage Strategies

  • Much general information for energy shield usage is given in the article Energy Shields.
  • The Block mod increases the Damage Mitigation mod by an absolute amount, not a %, it is different from and does not give % damage mitigation.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • As a buff, a player doesn't have to worry about if their shield is up and running. (Unless it's energy is all gone).
  • Will stack with Divine Protection to make a super-powered energy shield.

Cons

  • Does not regenerate energy points while in-combat.
  • If using with Divine Protection, it will deactivate Warding Energy when the duration expires, meaning this buff will have to be recast often.
