Energy shield

From Path of Exile Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Energy shield is shown on the player's life orb.

Energy shield is a form of defence that acts as an additional hit point pool on top of life. Along with armour and evasion, energy shield is one of the three defence types that can implicitly appear on equipment. Unlike life, energy shield will recharge naturally after the character has not taken any damage for 2 seconds.

Every class starts with no energy shield, and gains 2% increased maximum energy shield every 10 intelligence.

Mechanics

Damage mitigation

If the character has any energy shield remaining when damage is taken, that damage is inflicted on energy shield first. Physical damage reductions and elemental resistances applies to damage before it is deducted from energy shield. Damage is only applied to life or mana once all energy shield is depleted. The exception to this is chaos damage, which bypasses energy shield. Shavronne's WrappingsShavronne's Wrappings

Start of Energy shield Recharge

Effect of #% faster start of Energy Shield Recharge

Energy shield will automatically begin to recharge if the character does not take any damage for a certain period of time. With Blood Magic, spending life instead of mana to use a skill counts as taking damage. By default, the delay period for energy shield to begin to recharge is 2 seconds. This can be reduced with #% faster start of Energy Shield Recharge modifiers from passive skills and equipment.

Let r be the sum of #% faster start of Energy Shield Recharge modifiers (as a percentage). The delay period in seconds is given by:


 \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} \text{Delay Period} = {200 \over 100 + r}

For example, having 100% faster start of Energy Shield Recharge results in a delay period of 1 second.

Energy shield Recharge Rate

Energy shield recharge rate is a form of recovery and is by default:

Energy shield will stop recharging when it reaches maximum or if the character takes damage. This recharge rate can be increased with #% increased Energy Shield Recharge Rate modifiers.

Stun prevention

While the character has any energy shield remaining the character has a 50% chance to ignore being stunned. This bonus is not additive with other stun avoidance modifiers from passive skills and equipment; the chance to ignore stun granted by energy shield is rolled separately.[1]
