why would I need to refill my shields if they never go down when I try hard


Obvious troll is obvious.

Shield Boost gets a 9/10 for me. It's fantastic. There's nothing better for keeping a team up when being overran or during hard objectives. However, considering the range requirement it's only as useful as your teammates are good. With a coordinated group you're basically invulnerable. With a group of tryhards like AC130 up there, it's still good but it loses a lot of its efficiency. Also, this ability is the reason why Volus can get away with such low starting Health and Shields. Well, this and the shield/health gates.


You called me a troll and then admitted my point was valid. Are you serious right now?

Uh, I admitted that, to maximize efficiency, you need a coordinated team. It doesn't change the point that you're severely underrating a power that can single-handedly swing games. Much like Stim Pack. Your logic is laughable at best.

I'm saying you're a troll by claiming your shields never go down. I suppose if you're an Infiltrator sniper that never assists with objectives or revives a downed teammate then your shields won't go down. Maybe. But who wants to play with that guy? No, you're either lying or just a bad player who contributes little to the team. Or both.

Shield Boost is not a power that maximizes efficiency. My opinion is that Shield Boost is bad because of that.

And when I said my shields don't go down when I try, I meant all the way down.

And you see no benefit to powers that let you circumvent the recharge time? More uptime for damage is pretty good.

3/10 piece of garbage, why would I need to refill my shields if they never go down when I try hard


The same logic from stimulant pack applies here.

4/10 because it's better than stim packs


Do I have to point out how badly you need shield restoring powers again?

On topic:

1/10

My teammates suddenly forget how to dodge the instant they see I am a Volus...


Don't blame the poor volus for the stupidity of other players. It's not his fault they're idiots.


I'll say 9/10, because it makes me feel I'm letting the team down if I use other powers.
