E.g. a maximum of one stack can be gained per 2 seconds and the stacks drop off after a really short period of time, say no more than 10 seconds. This would allow for 5 stacks in a pressure damage situation.
Having it apply to max within the first 5 or 10 shots makes stacking quite pointless as a gameplay mechanic and having the stacks last 30s makes any gameplay centered around waiting for them to drop off impractical.
Another thing to consider:
These shields also come in [ResA] and [ResB] variants which provide an additional flat 15% reduction against 4 (?) energy types. Combined, this is a really big resist.
So maybe change the stacks so that it can only be 5 or 10 stacks max in total, over all energy types? This way one could counter these shields by diversifying one's weaponry.
What is the design intention here? What is the intended resist level? How strong is it supposed to be in comparison to resist abilities like EPtS, TSS, RSF?
Okay, I like your ideas better
