Defense Drone - Notes

  • Unlike Combat Drone, this drone is a small construct that follows the user. This also means it cannot be killed and it stays during the whole summon period
  • Very effective against a group of enemies as its normal attacks can stun and stagger enemies.
  • Chain Lighting allows one to stun three enemies in a row if they are hit one after another with the same shot.
  • The skill is perfect for close-quarter combat classes like Vanguard. The drone will stun nearby enemies allowing them to avoid additional enemy fire.
  • The big problem with it is that it moves slowly. This means that if you storm or use Biotic Charge the drone may take a while to reach the summoner back.
