Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to Update 26.0, this mod provided an armor bonus while Channeling at the cost of Channeling Efficiency.
    • Because Channeling while blocking will negate all incoming damage (rendering the Armor increase irrelevant), the effect is only present when Channeling but not blocking. Even with the highest possible Armor before Abilities (a Valkyr with Mod TT 20px.pngSteel Fiber and Mod TT 20px.pngArmored Agility, for a damage resistance of 83.61%), a 20% increase to Armor only results in a 2.35% increase to damage resistance. Blocking but not Channeling with any melee weapon will reduce damage by a significantly greater amount (the lowest damage block of all melee weapons is 35%).
    • As the use of abilities blocks the use of channeling this mod has no effect on Warframe abilities.
