it's the standard 'when in doubt' option to take.

If you're not sure what one best suits your playstyle or the current playlist, always go shielding.

It's bad.

If it helped the delay before your shields recharge it would be good, but it only shortens the length it takes to get to full after they've started recharging. So you're still shieldless for the same amount of time.

What do you mean you didn't know that, that is exactly what it says in the description of the ability.

I thought the shield downtime would be shorter, not just the time it takes after beginning to recharge.
