# 7 Playstyle?

Tradition escort hit-and-run play style would favor covariant with lower regen acceptable as an offset to higher initial defense. Get in, score a kill, and get out if you become the focus of the enemy! It seems to work well for me. As long as I have counters prepared against snares my big problem has been the quick burst damage from multiple opponents rather than needing sustained regen. In practice, however, most people don't play their escorts that way. If you don't find yourself breaking off combat then go with high regen shields.
