Recently I've noticed that the Personal shield I use is a one hit wonder and is drained extremely quickly. Can this be improved to make the personal shield more effective in battle.

Might be helpful to tell us which shield, what mark it is, and if it is appropriate to your level or not.

Yea... A Mark IV shiled won't do you much good at VA... We need to know what you're using.

IF you're using a MK X, XI or XII shield at VA however, it's likely that your shield is either bugged or that your enemy is a bit rough.

Most shields do not last for more than a few shots against any serious fire. They nerfed the heck out of them. The best bet is to get some regen bonuses and learn to fire a bit, duck, heal the shield, then go back at it. Unfortunately STO's ground game is not good nor fluid enough to be the sort of thing making you try to use a relatively non-existent cover mechanic... : |

Shields became crap with the Season 4 release. Damage got scaled up, health/shields scaled down.

IMO the shields got scaled down TOO much...

In groups of players, befriend (or just be) an Engineer. They can all drop Cover-Shields, which are immensely helpful for this very reason. Stay near the shield and do what you need to, and when you take a hit or two and your shield pops, duck into cover for it to regenerate.

In an STF this is a great opportunity to use your remod as well, since even if you don't need it YET, you likely will soon.

Agreed 100%... Except enemy shields often seem to be very potent by contrast... : |
