  • Tediore Shields are ideal with this skill since they have higher than normal recharge rate and lower recharge delay.
  • Shields with long recharge delays are poor choices to use with this skill, although Willing can help reduce this problem.
  • With 5 points in Preparation, boosted by class mods, it will take less than 50 seconds to regenerate all lost health.
