I don't quite get it.

If you don't like resparks and rebels that is fine with me.

However, when it comes to Respark ARKs, this shield is obviously best.

Is this just a fashion/fad thing?

Resparks are great for open world PvE. Always have been.

I like Resparks. "Best" is subjective. 10% speed is cool. I have a Regen ark with a 2.4 recharge and a Survivor ark with a 2.25. They both seem good also. I'd probably be interested in buying the OMEC one also though, depending on the price.

No, I wouldn't come to Gen. Disc. to make a thread if people wouldn't but something I was selling in zone (and no, I haven't tried to sell it in zone recently).

No, I won't trade or sell to you one of the 2 Omecs that I have.

Have a nice day.

Since I snagged a Guardian Angel, my trusty old Respark has been gathering dust 'n rust.

I was initially pleasantly surprised when I got an Omec Respark from a lockbox, but that soon faded when I realised how average it really is...

...I mean, not even a nano resistance?

C'mon!

Got a feeling the Omec shield will be quite popular if/when they release some type of Omec AR or who knows what....holding onto mine just in case, and I do use it on several of my current loadouts.

Respark... I don't use any of this type shields and then .. no resist... it's just a named shield with crappy abs (at least for me)

If you use the perk Kill-or-be-Killed you would even switch to an Ironclad in WM.

What i like about the Omec is the speed boost. I use it very often since i got it. In fact, in the the last week i have been using more the Omec than the ark regen...

Its a fine shield imo.

The Respark energizer was a pretty sought after shield before this. They could fetch between 5-10 mil because they were collectors pieces and rare. Now its a JP and it is worth less than half of its original value.

They have been selling for ~1.5 mil in Zone on PS3/NA. Mostly because they are everywhere now due to Trion not updating the jackpot like they said they would 3 weeks ago.

Omec shield so great for co ops, I'm thinking it was designed with speed-running in mind.

I do use that perk and it proc just as, if not more than with high cap sheilds.
As long as you keep your plates up, he wont kill you with a respark regen.

It's not ever occurred to me to try something other than my Respark in WM. He's pretty easy to not get hit by unless he's rubber-banding.

Im too busy shooting him to dodge.

My sheild is also wetwork, so i buff everyone 15% on sheild break.

I was agreeing with you. But it's also easy to dodge while shooting, it's just one step every second or so. Wait for missiles, step. Wait for missiles, step.

Not worried about extracting. The perk (AFAIK) only is active while the shield is down. When you have any shield left it dissipates. Which is why Ironclad and Rhino work synergistically with it (6 and 9.6 sec down time). While the quick charge shields are only down for a couple of seconds (~<3 seconds).

Wetwork works well at WM. I have an Ironclad with Wetwork. Do you know if Wetwork stacks?

Omec shield is ****ty stupid pointless worst JP shield of Respark with melee synergy. I laughably die a lot while using it. I just keep getting one hitted by everything. If it was Ironclad or Rhino, it could have been the best melee shield better than Sai Surge.

I really wish the devs would start to take melee serious in this game...

I like my Omec shield and rarely die when using it...still haven't tried it with the sword and sg yet.

They were doing the Hallow Point thing. It ran alongside the event but was the only source of T5 mods.

As we are due for a 5 hour downtime tomorrow it is possible that they will add a new jackpot item, but don't know. It could just be prep for the EXL event this coming weekend. And Sirserved is right. The bitbox synergy for October was the Halloween synergy.

And your point? Nothing in my post says it isn't. The link is for this week and the EXL event is November 7. The October mention was in response to person I quoted who implied there were no bitbox oriented synergies since CE. However the Hallowpoint synergies are considered bitbox oriented.

You are partially right. The abundance of lifesteal has robbed Rebels and Resparks of their best attribute.

However, I never used resparks in WM. The only reason I have a Rhino Bullseye ARK is for WM.

Another word on the Omec: the 5% speed boost alone sets it above other Respark ARKs. The melee is whatever.

I used an Energizer Respark before the Omec for Volge incursions. All the bombs allow me to keep Overcharge almost constantly active.

FYI, anyone using a Respark should also be using Displacement Field, just sayin.

And escape artist =). The 2 speed boost ego perk with a respark omec is awesome. Especially with a spinal tap wep, seems there's no cool downs =)

I find that DF activates much more often than EA. But, that might be because of my weapons and tactics.
