I've never gotten an ARK shield.

I know that "RNG is RNG" so I don't think it really matters whether is was a T2-4, mono, or faction vendor.

However, I am still curious.

Got one of my Orange ARK shields from the Tarr Trax box glitch thingy. The other from Top notch random chest.

Never got an ARK my self, but i`m happy with the shields i currently have.
But i wouldn`t mind having one of those with 100% (?) regen.

I don't think I've ever even seen an ARK much less possessed one.

True. But I'm not spending money on a subpar ARK lol.

I traded for a "Hurricane Survivor ARK" the other day because the name is so cool. :)

I like using it just for the name.

That data isn`t accurate because Legendary shields are not all ARK.

That is the rarity you can find it at, not what they all will be.

Yup, that 100% regen makes me drool ;)

OK but that is not what is stated there and it may mislead less informed players.

I had a 100% health regen shield once. Didn't really impress me.

The ARKs I found were from the top notch vendor and my awesome Hurricane Energizer V ARK from a darkmatter major.

I got the 2 I've ever pulled from tier2 boxes...
Rebel Regen ARK which I sold to a clan mate.
Rhino Blockade ARK which is just the game trolling me since vehicles do NO damage anymore... so I vendored that one..

ARK shields have the highest of whatever the bonus is on the shield. For instance. a Ironclad Regen 4/5 is 75%, while an ark is 100% regen. Atleast, that's been my observation. Idk about the other bonuses but I imagine its the same kind of thing

My first was a Rhino Energizer when I was 4640ego at a tier 2 at Last Chance.

My second was Ironclad Regenerator 5181ego at the Mono.

My third was on another toon, was a Rebel Fortifier 1467ego at tier 3 at Headlands.

I've scrapped 2 ARK shields on my main, since I don't use those types. I've upgraded Respark Regens to orange until an ARK version comes up. By the look of things, servers will close down for good before that happens. Longer, more fulfilling chase my armoured arse.

You can't get ARKs by upgrading rarity because you will always have the same bonus as you had before upgrading rarity. Only armor plates and base stats change when upgrading rarity.

As far as pulling ARKs go it's pretty much luck of the draw from wherever you can get orange shields. Here are the ones I remember getting (not counting ones from players).

Rhino Energizer ARK from a T3
Tachyon Booster ARK and Respark Bullseye ARK from T2s
Tachyon Survivor, Rebel Reloader, and Rhino Regen ARKs from Faction supply crates

None from T4s. Actually... I think I've only pulled one OJ shield ever from a T4.

I've been playing since the beta, and I've never once gotten an Ark level shield, nor a Regenerator of any kind that was more than 50% health regen. : shrug :

Sorry for not being precise. I just upgrade my shield to orange to get the extra armour plate. I know an ARK version has to be born legendary. Upgrades keep the bonuses from their original tier.

Ahh ok I get what you are saying now that I reread your post :). Just wanted to check and maybe clear up for others who didn't know.

Tachyon Guardian V ARK. got it from the Tarr Trax glitch thing. It's not bad, works alright with cloak.

What is a "Tarr Trax glitch thing"?

The glitch was that pretty much everyone who opened on of the Traxx boxes got an OJ shield. They patched that though. (This was when the patch first released on PS3)

In the year and a half or however long I've been playing I've pulled (2) Arks, both from DM Monoliths...both variants of one another (and two weeks apart roughly a month ago)
-REBEL ENERGIZER V ARK
-RESPARK ENERGIZER V ARK

Both are AWESOME shields, but the the RESPARK ENERGIZER is hands down the best shield I have ever used!
