Shields

Shield and I-frame Interactions.

By: Trosalio#0420 Added: 6/3/2021 Discussion

Finding: Gaining I-frames by dashing through enemy attacks will allow both your unit and their shield to take no damage, but using an Elemental Burst to gain I-frames will only make your unit took no damage, while their shield will still take damage.

Significance: better knowledge of how to preserve shields and how shields interact with I-frames.

How Elemental Shields having 250% Absorption Bonus to said element Work

By: Türin#8565

E/N: Submission demonstrates the above mentioned effect using the example of Diona but this also holds true for other similar character-generated shields.

Theory:

With Cryo Absorption Bonus, Diona takes 2.5 points of Cryo Damage for every 1 point of Shield HP lost.

Evidence:

My original math is in the description of the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gk41KCMjfCI&feature=youtu.be

Significance:

Other shield effectiveness is not accounted for, but it stands to reason that they work the same way. We can both say that a shield has 2.5x of its current value, or the damage is reduced by 2.5x, against it's effective element.
