Perk Breakdown[edit | edit source]

  • On use the perk will have the following effects on the targeted dwarf:
    • Instantly regenerate all shield.
    • Add 60 to the maximum shield value of the target (unlike the description it doesn’t really triple the shield value).
    • The overshield will stay up to 20 / 30 / 30 s.
    • If any damage is taken, the shield will only regenerate up to it’s normal value, any overshield used is lost forever.
  • Neither the passive nor the active effect of the perk can stack.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • This perk is invaluable for the defense zones in Salvage Operation.
  • On an organised team you can have this perk ready to use for each swarm, allowing you to reduce the amount of health lost.
  • Remember to equip another perk when going in a mission with a Shield Disruption Warning, as this perk will grant no benefits when used there.
