So which brand name is the best type of shield to use?

I 'm looking for one that takes less time to power up the most I've come across are at 3 seconds.
:cool:

PVE or PvP? Completely two different set ups for both. I like fast recharge (respark) in PVE, high capacity (ironclad) is what is probably best for PvP.

Once you start getting high ego the respark III and above shields start getting <3 seconds. Lowest I've seen is 2.65

ok didn't know there was a different setting for pve and pvp.

Respark is a fast recharge? Color doesn't matter?

Respark base recharge is 3 seconds. It think its a combo of ego level and color that will reduce it. I didn't see a sub 3 seconds till after ego 1000.

Yes Resparks tend to have a 3 second delay or lower with a 40% recharge rate once it starts recharging. It's not really a different setting but it's just what people tend to prefer for each gametype.

The rarer the color the lower the delay unless the shield comes with some sort of bonus (like Respark Reloader). Some shields will get different stat boosts though by color. Hurricanes for example might get a boost to recharge rate from color while Ironclads or Rhinos might get a capacity boost. And as you increase in EGO shields should generally have slightly more capacity.

Yep think that's the base Respark V orange with no bonus. I know a lot of people want the Respark Regenerator V with 100% health regen but that 2.4 delay seems just as good imo.

I roll a purple Respark IV with a 2.55 delay sometimes and even that is just crazy good. Versus my purple Respark Regenerator with a 3 delay I can really notice the delay difference.

okay I have a shield with 2.65 delay but, I can't remember what it is with 10%
I have a purple shield but it has a 6 delay but, 80%.

I would have to check when i get on but my shield i believe has a delay of 2.85, 40% recharge rate and a 25% Health Regeneration bonus
Resparks are definately some of the better shields

ok so it seems the Respark has the shortest time for delay.

Thanks

Respark would be considered medium recharge, but its fast enough (10, 40, and 70% are the most common shield recharge speeds).

Color doesn't matter

I have a respark regenerator that I just can't seem to replace. Charge just over 1000, 40% recharge rate, 3 second delay and a 50% life regeneration. Paired with thick skinned I feel pretty tough but every now and then I'll still get lit up.

Respark is definitely a good all purpose shield.

There are some very nice abilities that are useable only when your shields are down though. Depending on how close to the edge you like to play, might want to hang on to any nice shield drops you get with longer delays :)

Anything with a faster recharge rate than Respark has a longer delay that more than offsets the difference. You should look at the combination of delay and rate when picking your shield.

If someone shoots you at 4 seconds after your shield breaks with a Respark, you have 40% shield. If someone shoots you at 4 seconds with a Tachyon or Hurricane, you have no shields, so that faster recharge rate isn't doing you any good. By the time you hit the 6 second delay to start recharging one of those, the Respark has already completely recharged.

I just checked last night and currently have a Respark Regenerator II D
1087 Capacity, 40% Recharge/Sec
3 second Recharge Delay and has +25% HP regeneration
I have heard of some that have over +60 HP regeneration, just have not found any yet

Legend has it that there is a Respark Regenerator V ARK with a 2.5 regen and 100% HP regen.

100%? That one sounds like a winner.

Is that a Rhino Regenerator or just a Rhino?
