Usage & Description

The Rapid Release is an above-average nova shield, and should be used in largely the same way. It can prove useful to melee-oriented characters for several levels, but is surpassed in quality by purple-rarity or higher nova shields of equal level.

The Rapid Release may also spawn with the Grounded, Inflammable, or Alkaline prefixes giving the wearer immunity to electrocution, burning, or corrosion status effects respectively.
