  • Profession: Science
  • Locale: Space
  • Game Description: Transfer Shield Strength transfers power from the deflector field to provide a large shield heal over time and a small shield damage resistance buff over duration. Increases in effectiveness based on current auxiliary power level.

  • The damage reduction buff depends exclusively on Auxiliary power. No other skills or abilities affect this buff, but the buff does stack with other damage reduction buffs, items and skills.
  • The heal and HoT provided by Transfer Shield Strength depends heavily on four factors.
  • Fractional points in skills (from Threat-Scaling Science Consoles) or auxiliary power
