Do Shields have any purpose in the mid to late game? In my experience up to level 22 they are completely useless.
With a recharge rate of 1 per second it will take about 4 minutes to recharge my shield whereas it seems to last about 4 secs in battle - hence I never bother recharging it.
I know you can use recharge stations & also give up slots to increase shield regen but I cant see these as viable unless they increase regen by a factor of 10.
Is there a mod to increase shield regen by say 3x? Ive only seen these as part of weapon mods which I think are quite unbalanced.
