Brief Respite is an aura mod that grants additional Shields equal to a percentage of Energy spent whenever an ability is cast.


Rank Effect Cost *
0 25% -2
1 50% -3
2 75% -4
3 100% -5
4 125% -6
5 150% -7

* Aura mods increase the amount of Mod Capacity


Brief Respite is dropped by the Orphid Specter, available upon anointing a Silver Grove shrine with the Twilight Apothic.


  • Stacks with the Augur mod set effect for a total of 390% Energy to shield conversion.
  • InarosIcon272.png Inaros and NidusIcon272.png Nidus (due to having no shields) as well as HildrynIcon272.png Hildryn and LavosIcon272.png Lavos (due to having no energy) are unaffected by this aura.
  • Shields are only replenished from activating abilities. Constant Energy drain from channeling abilities or triggered drain such as ArtemisBow130xDark.png Artemis Bow shots do not replenish Shields.
  • Because the amount of shields restored is based off energy usage, this means that Ability Efficiency can reduce the potency of this aura's effects.
    • Conversely, equipping Mod TT 20px.png Blind Rage to decrease Efficiency increases the effectiveness of the aura.
  • This is the first aura using the Zenurik Pol.svg polarity.
    • Currently no Warframe possesses a matching polarity by default, aside from ProteaIcon272.png Protea and SevagothIcon272.png Sevagoth who have universal Aura polarities.
