A Nova Shield produces a large explosion when depleted, causing elemental damage to all enemies in the blast radius. It must recharge fully in order to produce another Nova; if only partially depleted it will not trigger again.
Nova Shields are best suited to melee-focused character builds who spend a lot of their time among enemies; the Nova is an excellent tool to prime enemies for getting Second Winds.
Deadly Bloom - Uniqueexplosive nova shield which also generates a nova explosion when health is depleted.
Black Hole - Legendaryshock nova shield that pulls nearby enemies towards the wearer when its shield charge is depleted as well as generating a huge blast.
