Energy Drain - Notes

  • The ability is extremely effective against enemy shields and barriers. Avoid using it against armors
  • The ability can hit two targets
  • Energy Drain will prime enemy hit with a Tech Burst. This can be exploited with abilities like Overload
  • It can detonate Fire, Cryo, and Tech Explosions against all synthetic targets. However, detonation only happens for organic targets if they have a barrier or shield
  • It can be combined with an Overload Chain upgrade.
  • Use it on classes that are not able to strip enemy shields and barriers easily: Vanguard or Adept.
