I'm looking at Personal Shields and there's so many different ones, so i put forth the question, What's your preferred choice of personal shield and why?
I'm currently using a Mk XI capx3 which gives me 345 max shield and 3 sec recharge.
Either [Cap] [Reg] [Energy Type]or[ Cap] [Reg]x2.
If I can't be bothered to keep switching shields then I run either the Phase Shifted shield which is a good all rounder or I'll use energy specific shields for STFs etc where I know which energy type I'll face.
I do use the Capx3 on my Engineer where the high capacity and access to high resistance is helpful but for the other two classes I really like the [Reg] modifier, but I use a lot of cover so get plenty of mileage out of it.
I prefer the new blue XI one you can get from the DoFFs. It has almost the same Cap as the Cap X2 + The Regen Bonus + Resistance to being knocked around. High Cap hardly matters because most things rip down your entire shield in just 2 to 3 shots no matter what. Regen is more important so the moment you duck behind something you get it all back and NOT being knocked around is extremely important.
