9/10.

It does what it does well + I misread as Fornication every time I see it, and that makes me giggle.

Gave it an 8. It's not half bad for what it is. Up to 40% DR and 30% power damage increase can be handy to have. The melee boost is a little gimmicky. I wish it worked better. Loses some points for kind of being a worse tech armor and having too subtle an active indicator for when you've been purging to melee.

7/10

It's the middle ground of armor powers. It's not bad, but it doesn't do anything particularly useful. Its alternate ability is to gain a melee boost when purging the armor, and honestly in most cases I'd take a mediocre AoE attack than a boost in melee damage. That said, Barrier and especially Tech Armor (since it provides more DR) are better.

On the geth soldier, 6/10 for the damage reduction and the 30% power increase.

On everyone else, 2/10, because I shouldn't have to deactivate it to get the melee damage. That **** should be automatic when I activate the power like it is with tech armor.

Also, its hard to tell when it is on and when it isn't sometimes, and that can cause problems in the heat of battle in its own right.

grant total: 4/10

8/10. Nice damage reduction and the extra power damage works great with the geth trooper. I would much rather have defense matrix though, since I'd rather get my shields restored when deactivating the power instead of a melee boost.

Not trying to derail the thread or anything but...


WHY THE HELL WON'T THEY JUST GIVE US DEFENSE MATRIX ??

I mean how many people actually use the "purge" abilities constantly ?? less than 10% you think ??

Now how many people would constantly use the "purge" ability on DM ?? 100% of users I would think.

I mean it's not like it's OP to be able to top up your shields since you have like Stim Packs (nades are easy to get), Shield Boost (plus shield regen AND can be specced for 50% DR), Energy Drain (yes I know only on shields/barriers)
