What do we say to the God of Death? – Reduces character health to 1. Increases shield capacity by 100%. Increases shield recharge rate by 25%, decreases recharge delay by 25%.

Usage & Description

This artifact can be very powerful with skills such as Moze's Desperate Measures, which increases gun damage based on missing health.
