  • This ability works wonderfully with the Blood Soaked Shields as it provides highest yield toward a Mechromancer with low health status.
  • A Neogenator or Evolution provides increased health regeneration when shields are low. When combined with this skill, both health and shields enjoy high regeneration when Gaige is near death.
