How does the Energy Shield work?
« on: November 02, 2016, 06:30:41 PM »
So I've picked up the Energy Shield module a few times now.
I have yet to actually understand to what degree getting hit corresponds to energy loss- I'm obviously not paying attention to my energy bar.
It seems really quite poor, as no matter how large my pool I seem to find myself running out at random

  • I'm probably joking.

1 point of damage = X energy. It doesn't cause invulnerability frames. So persistent shots can do infinite damage in some cases.

That explains things. I'll try playing with it, see how powerful it is when you know what's going on.
Thanks for the info!
