Perk Breakdown[]

  • On use the perk will have the following effects on the targeted dwarf:
    • Instantly regenerate all shield.
    • Add 60 to the maximum shield value of the target (unlike the description it doesn’t really triple the shield value).
    • The overshield will stay up to 20 / 30 / 30 s.
    • If any damage is taken, the shield will only regenerate up to it’s normal value, any overshield used is lost forever.
  • Neither the passive nor the active effect of the perk can stack.
  • If a teammate is lacking part of his shields to benefit from the passive effect of Shield Link, vertical blue lines will ascend from him.
