Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Arcane Aegis causes the innate Warframe shield regeneration to activate regardless of whether the player has recently taken damage or not, with a bonus 30% of maximum shield value additionally regenerated per second (at rank 5).
    • While the bonus shield per second is affected by neither Mod TT 20px.pngFast Deflection nor Mod TT 20px.pngFortitude, the innate shield regeneration is, causing the enhancement to be more potent with these mods equipped.
    • As soon as the effect activates, the innate shield regeneration and bonus maximum shield regeneration remain active for the entire duration of the buff, even if the player takes damage.
    • with Mod TT 20px.pngRedirection, Mod TT 20px.pngPrimed Vigor, Mod TT 20px.pngAugur Accord, and Mod TT 20px.pngFast Deflection equipped on HildrynIcon272.png Hildryn, for a total shield capacity of 5355 - Hildryn with Arcane Aegis will have a shield regeneration value of 2143.7 shields per second.
  • Does not generate overshields.
  • As this Arcane is only triggered when shields are damaged, this has no benefit on InarosIcon272.png Inaros and NidusIcon272.png Nidus (who have no shields to begin with), or during a Nightmare Mode mission with the No Shields modifier.
    • Interestingly, this Arcane can still trigger while recieving damage during the time between shields are depleted, but before you begin taking damage to your health.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This arcane was originally dropped in The Jordas Verdict. Following Update 22.14, all Trial missions were retired from the game and the arcane drops in turn were moved to the Eidolons instead.
