  • 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).
  • Does not generate overshields.
  • As this Arcane is only triggered when shields are damaged, this has no benefit on InarosInarosIcon272.png Inaros and NidusNidusIcon272.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.


  • This arcane was originally dropped in The Jordas Verdict. Following Update 22.14 (2018-03-01), all Trial missions were retired from the game and the arcane drops in turn were moved to the Eidolons instead.
