      • Understanding what the set does should be much easier now.
  • Polaron Procs:
    • Assigned a stack limit to Polaron Energy Drains.
    • Polaron energy drain comes with two components:
      • 1) Max energy level reduction to all subsystems that lasts 5 seconds.
      • 2) An instant drain of all subsystem energy.
        • This has no duration - enemy immediately begins regenerating energy lost from this instant effect.
    • The new Stack Limit on Polaron procs applies ONLY to the duration-based aspect that reduces a target's max energy.
      • The instant drain is not limited.

    • Some of these boxes in the Exchange may still be labeled as Uncommon.
      • The items within the boxes are the same.
