Item Database - Cyclic Retribution of the Aesir

Cyclic Retribution of the Aesir Icon #39201 Protects the adventurer with a damage shield that inflicts damage each time it is hit. This shield also features a minor absorption shield that will absorb a set amount of damage that would otherwise be inflicted upon the adventurer. Once this absorption limit has been reached, all future damage will pass on directly to the adventurer. This absorption shield will refresh itself every two minutes. However, the damage absorbing mechanism used is known not to work well with other methods used for absorbing damage.

/me nuts. this is crazy shild-dmg 100 :P
User101 @ 2005-05-06 11:21
Damage shields r useless cept in PvP

Mobs have, on average, at least 5x the hit points of an equivalent lvl char. Ergo, DS = useless in PvM.
zyx22 @ 2005-05-14 19:52
Yeah, free abosrb... it sucks!
waka @ 2005-07-25 22:39
yeah you know 100 from this +47 from vengeance of nature plus the adds from bioshield 300 damage+ everytime they hit you and an absorb hmmm useless :p
Ephyon @ 2005-07-31 04:44
Kicks ass, but some people loves to complain about everything instead of appriciating what they get ^^
Galira @ 2005-08-02 10:20
I dont get it... How can you say that this nano is useless when it in fact does damage?
I mean, sure, you would like one that has 56890 in shield damage, but then again, why not just get a zap gun that will insta kill the monsters? Or?
This nano is superb!!! It is wonderful since it increase the damage you deal to a monster, not but so much - I agree, but any increase is an increase!

This nano rocks.
MacDK @ 2005-08-31 22:39
just tell me where to find it :)
Endemicx @ 2005-10-27 17:33
where? been hunting inf mobs for a while, no sighting so far..
harton @ 2005-12-30 20:50
how could u not like this? lol
just 100 dmg may not be much but it adds up
Kplayona @ 2006-01-20 02:13
if ur in pvp and enfo hits u atleast 26 times in 10 seconds imagine the dmg ur shield will do ;) 2.6k dmg but since pvp people have better def and crap it might do something around 2k but even with it it's still aawesome! why not have that extra little damage to nail that big fat enf down ;)
Twistex @ 2006-01-24 12:56
penumbra sanctuary?
killer22222 @ 2006-01-28 18:51
Where can i find this nano is it in pen sanc?
12lettername @ 2006-01-30 11:51
Not in pen sanct. Had 2 org members look and neither found it. It doesn't appear to be in any garden.
Scain @ 2006-04-01 10:12
found Cyclic "Wings of the Phoenix" on one of the Predators and on a Redeemed in Penumbra. Maybe the "Cyclic Retribution of the Aesir" drops there too

[Vicinity Loot Messages] Tirnaz looted NanoCrystal (Cyclic Retribution of the Aesir) from Remains of Patriarch Prophet Man Dal.
Whitey @ 2006-05-04 14:10

ziasod @ 2006-05-10 13:39

bartje @ 2006-05-13 15:31
hm.. what was funcom smokin when they thought about the duration...: 1 hour, 13 minutes, 20 seconds
blackseraph @ 2006-05-16 00:20
1 hour,13 minutes, 20 seconds = 4400 seconds :)
Blakscorpion @ 2006-05-22 12:05
Not to sure what game ya'll are playing but my toon uses Cyclic Retribution of Aesir for 100 PoD, but with Vengeance of Nature It jumps to 257 and with Bio Shield it jumps to 377 every time I get hit. If you have the 2nd Path of Light it jumps to 477. It helps good enough but the best way to survive is not to get hit. If you were smart enough to keep Dodge and Evade maxed then you can add 80 with wolf, 38 with Stare of Cerberus, 80 more if you are with an MP with Anticipation of Retaliation. Limber adds 200 and Dance of Fools gives 800. Thats an extra 1198 for 30sec. I'm only 208 fighting a 220 to 230 SL mob and only get hit 1 out of 8 to 10 of my hits. With a couple of 264 axes I hit for 1300 with my own buffs. If you add other buffs from team members that could jump to 1600 not to mention the perk that changes the fire damage to cold...But an advys best damage is delt with Backstab so make sure you max out Sneak Attack to...Advy roxxors.
lukew @ 2006-07-14 16:43
Bump for Blakscorpion's post! That is exactly how I play me Advn ^^
Awaren @ 2006-09-21 19:17
heard this is getting overwriten by cocoon, is that correct?
hellricksss @ 2006-09-22 23:56
you m8 can download in ado redeemed temple... i found mine there :)
hellricksss @ 2006-09-22 23:56
download? O.O **Loot** sry
Venderim @ 2006-09-29 04:46
@Whitey "why is this shield damage instead of reflect damage ... i dont get it :S"

Because this is a damage shield not a reflect shield :P
Whitelights @ 2006-10-18 16:43
reflect will stop damage from hitting you n reflect it back (hence ams/tms/rrfe n all taht) damage sheilds just hit the person/mob hitting you
Ravelord @ 2006-11-21 18:55
Just looted this nano from Esanell in pen hollows.
Software @ 2006-12-02 00:32
Yes this nano will get wiped when you pop cocoon. Then just recast it after. Should be able to pretty much insta cast this.
acrocrash @ 2007-06-15 21:10
nice nice.. did some maths abit ago, advies fully buffed and bio line maxed and soldier assitance symbs so on so forth, can drop like 450+ on return shield/reflect dmg.. ugh sick!
jeycihn @ 2007-10-08 02:36
when u learn how to use this sheild/absorb right, cocoon killing it is no issue at all.
Steeplerot @ 2007-11-05 10:34
Never see this on gms, any clues on hunting spots?
Mohamed @ 2007-12-10 02:23
This drops off rk dyna's of about same level...yes it's a nice nano, easy to recast after bio cocoon goes away.
Yeah it stacks to 377~ dmg shield with bio shield perk on, it's a nice add dmg solo or to keep aggro if you need the adv tanking. Of course this doesn't land this often cos a top adv is close to 3k evades with perks on.
I often notice mobs forget they are actually in a fight with me cos I evade too much, at that point even a leet pet can take aggro for a limited time, perfect for backstabbing more.
And in response to Blackscorpion which made his post a year and a half ago...its possible to reach pass 2300 minimum hit now, selfbuffed with mongooses mk6. ^^
buttmuffin @ 2008-02-27 06:28
he was only usin 264 axes at 208, so he hadnt twinked yet which is actually pretty decent at that level
Fixlox @ 2008-03-08 19:07
Exequter looted NanoCrystal (Cyclic Retribution of the Aesir) from Remains of Or-Moda Taka.
Outside the UnRedeemed temple in Scheol
Fixlox @ 2008-03-08 19:18
Redeemed Temple ^^
Zinrax @ 2008-06-05 17:30
So this is not recastable while cocoon is up?
Pung @ 2008-07-24 16:21
That is correct, and very annoying.
Ryanfonte @ 2008-07-27 01:23
wtb this not wiping when i coon up.
jarexxx @ 2008-11-04 23:49
Get this and go at level 10 into subway, then u rule, its power leveling.
Sithark @ 2008-11-14 10:24
Jarexxx did you miss something?
hint: User Level >= 195
Sithark @ 2008-11-14 10:25
wtb this nano working as solder SL reflect auras, when coon is up it does not overwrite the nano itslef only the effect of nano, when coon goes down, effects should be up after next tick
jarexxx @ 2008-11-24 18:47
User Level >= 195
No i didn't said Sithark, i wrote :)
User level is not target level!
So if lvl 1 player gets enough ncu he can get this on and xp well
vietnow @ 2009-01-03 04:31
"Protects the adventurer with" =self only
Awaren @ 2009-05-18 18:44
still overwritten by bio cocoon?
Ryugu @ 2010-06-18 22:53
little late to say this incase anyone is wondering, coon has its own line now and doesnt overwrite anything
Ryugu @ 2010-06-18 23:09
scratch that, either ingame is lying on the nano or auno is just confusing, :/ doesnt seem to stack but I havent tested
FirePaw @ 2010-08-13 19:05
It is still overwritten by cocoon, yes
Hwguy @ 2021-02-17 17:33
Dropped after a 20 minute farm in the Redeemed Inferno Camp near Pandemonium Ergo.
