are these nanos even worth the trouble??? since Bio Coccoon canels it out if you have to use it?
Revinor @ 2005-02-17 13:56
Yes, they are worth the trouble:
a) You can cast it on somebody else (not every class has access to Bio Shield)
b) If you will cast it before the fight, you can run BC after it is used up. With 'rainbow' monsters dealing mixed damage, it can mean few thousands extra hp at start of fight
c) Not every enf has SL, for them it is only layer available

Is this item blitzable? (if "blitzable" is a word..)
olezero @ 2005-04-16 19:59
think so, not sure... but i think so :P
bongbong @ 2005-05-02 18:03
Yes it's rollable
Morthoseth @ 2005-05-31 04:10
It is DAMN good. Mongo and chain cast this (with an alien recompiler or plenty of init) and it makes the docs job infinitely easier. Coupled with taunt procs and perks and you'll live a lot longer, yet still manage aggro.
Morthoseth @ 2005-05-31 04:10
Oldie, but a goodie. People underestimate this one.
Cheysey @ 2005-06-01 03:07
very nice to instacast.. like a 745 heal, maby alot more....

Wtf is with the nano name - Where the hell does Impregnability come from ..? :S
pillarguri @ 2005-08-25 15:35
From the dictionary:
1 : incapable of being taken by assault : UNCONQUERABLE

looks like the teachers did not let you learn that if you don't know a word LOOK IT UP!
Nytmare @ 2005-11-08 16:33
this nano is great on heckler in elly and in Adonis,beacuse hecks hit all dmg types and this nano will stop round 5000 dmg and u can recast it again and again.
Baldyr @ 2005-12-01 14:11
I helped a friend in Inferno without his boots on with this one =) He was going to a mission.
Whitey @ 2006-05-04 12:45
better than the NT absorbs, by 20'ish points.. pfft ;P
bartje @ 2006-06-07 12:52
u cast this before fight.. when mobs hit u again u spam Bio Cocoon.. whats the point
enfizzle @ 2006-06-15 22:03
thats 750 - 8000 (ish) more damage you can take before you need to put up your bio cocoon... think of how much hp the mob will have lost before you even need to put up cocoon ---> it allows you to sve your cocoon for adds or lets you use cocoon further into the fight meaning the monster has less chance of out living your bio cocoon duration.

so ... thats the point :)

on a side note, blitzing this one today, level 143.... i would of gotten it about 130... only hecklers somtimes mean you level a tad faster than you expected :P

Yeah...if it was like a heal...enfous would rule.. :D
Venderim @ 2006-09-23 22:16
For those who say this is crap because Bio cocoon cancels it - dis-regarding the fact you simply use bio cocoon once this has been used up, it works well on other profs without Bio perkline. I'm a soldier and with AMS up and this nano running I am practically invincible, specially on mobs that cycle their damage types, who need a doc =P. I absolutely love this nano.
AlphaCenta @ 2006-12-04 20:23
Yup, chain 2x FI, 1x Mongo every time, and you can be a soooo much better tanker ^^ Also a tip for agents in Mimic Enf :D

This IS like a heal.. it "heals" you before you take damage.
Ilikebunnies @ 2007-07-19 13:18
Instacast on full deffense: 2,274 nanoInit (just barely doable if you really want.. with rage, that is)
Instacast on full offense: 1,158 nanoInit (easy: viral compiler + about 400 points in nanoInit)
Ilikebunnies @ 2007-07-28 02:58
The new one will have: 6.92/4.65 attack/recharge, and 745 requirement for matCrea/bioMet. 408nanoCost, 49NCU.
(That's 2,352 nanoInit required for instacast on full deffense.. again, just barely doable at 220 w/ rage.. according to my magical calculator of doom)

Also it will have some sort of taunt-proc built into it.
Ilikebunnies @ 2007-07-28 03:00
...I meant the new version /shield/ will have a proc. doh.
Arcforcer @ 2008-09-28 17:04
think about this ..... once upon a time there was a sexy enfo who was going to face ely ot ado hecks he used Failing Impregnability and go 750 absortion then the heck crited him and he lose all his absortion, then he used biocoocon and puff 3,5k more absortion...... he soloed 2-3 hecks without getting damage and biocoocon recast time is 2min ... the time he used to kill the hecks ....... is beautyful story.
fly @ 2009-01-10 01:43
Actually arcforcer....a real enfo would just chain cast this over and over....and only use coon for "oh crap" moments.
Nukeclearia @ 2009-09-15 13:29
I do what Fly said, Spam Absorber then use coon for the "oh crap" moments
