Item Database - Isochronal Sloughing Assault Shield

Isochronal Sloughing Assault Shield Icon #39170 Creates a powerful, yet specialised force field around the engineer. This field will remain dormant until the engineer is attacked by a special attack, such as Burst or Full Auto. When such an attack upon the engineer is made, the field comes instantly to life and fully absorbs the effects of that attack. This shield can absorb 9 special attacks, and 1 normal attack, before being rendered useless. The power of the field will automatically be refreshed every 30 seconds.

Looks real nice, kinda like an engineer pvp TMS :)
Notumsurrrge @ 2004-04-08 03:23
damn thing is so inbalanced -- by the time someone can hit the engie with 7 special attacks, it has already refreshed. Seen some omni guy at tir survive like 4 people on him because their special attacks were absorbed -_-
EatMyDust69us @ 2004-04-23 22:59
Well, considering Agents can sometimes get 2-3 Aimed Shots in 30 seconds, I'd say this is fair
Megabob @ 2004-05-16 13:32
it's fair that they can absorb 7 specials every 3 secs? =)
Supatrue @ 2004-07-02 16:20
Enjoy it while it lasts, apparently it is supposed to refresh every 30 seconds not 3.
Taeglen @ 2004-07-22 00:37
not much to say beside insane
tremor @ 2004-08-17 16:20
lol, nice ^^
Ariac @ 2005-01-04 11:53
Still refresh's every 3 secounds.
Octo @ 2005-06-03 10:15
Fixed with 15.9 patch, now 30 sec
Moniker @ 2005-07-05 22:53
still pretty durned good
greyze @ 2005-07-24 23:57
dos it absorb normal attacks or perks aswell?
seejin @ 2005-08-13 16:50
Dosen't do normal just specials like it says"special attack, such as Burst or Full Auto. When such an attack upon the engineer is made, the field comes instantly to life and fully absorbs the effects of that attack." - ownage though you just stand there have all your reflections up and every time they hit you they get hit for like 160 back from damage/reflection and you just let the bot rip them to shreads. Greatest PvP nano line for engis hands down.
Arrone @ 2006-02-21 04:16
this is "the" P.W.N. :]
Awaren @ 2006-03-20 02:06
This = invulnerable to specials

This + bio shield perk + reflective nano = Impossible to kill engineer in 1v1 PVP
slytha @ 2006-04-14 09:37
omg, youre talking huge crap, if u would have any idea of pvp, then you would know that engis aren't impossible to kill.
Rdic @ 2006-04-27 11:01
dude, chill
Msauss @ 2006-09-24 18:52
Takes away the only thing agents are good at: ganking
Geekwave @ 2006-11-24 12:33
Moral for agents are. Dont try ganking engis :P
Yakobo66 @ 2006-12-09 22:49
then the agent gets ganked by aoe blind and cant hit the Cocooned engy :D
Shadow.ik @ 2006-12-10 23:00
Poor fixers =// Anyway nanoline of this nano should be : xploit!!1!
Gavyyn @ 2006-12-14 03:02
well guys at least we can still crit them to death :) silly tardbots :p
ull always be agent food :D
Shadow.ik @ 2006-12-27 14:47
When you wanna alpha engi bring your org LOL
acrocrash @ 2007-02-07 06:36
Seen many doc's and shades take out engies faily easily, perks and dot's its pretty void, NT's even take them out easily, Nano attacks go through cocoon and this :)
charmo @ 2007-02-19 14:23
"Yakobo66 @ 2006-12-09 22:49

Why do you up cocoon when they cannot hit you ^^?
Yakobo66 @ 2007-03-09 17:13
because, then you start getting ganked by 50 people and thier specials might get through evntually ^^
Nook1e @ 2007-03-12 10:18
hmmm, run through bor and spam blinds while everyone is flagged while having this enabled...
will be fun ^^
fly @ 2007-05-10 17:46
@ charmo
Bc this only absorb special still have to deal with those annoying normal attacks and crits ^^

This nano seems to overide cocoon when used, i have tried perking cocoon with this nano active in my ncu and the cocoon fails. This just might be my experiance tho.
alesicis @ 2007-09-20 11:31
i dont see how it could override coon as that is temp absorb
Worldnuker @ 2007-12-16 02:57
Does this mean MAs are good at taking out engis? MAs are the best DPS (Damage per second) Only 1 real spec, and thats AS, if you have a bow, brawl and dimach are crappy unless you got capped charge dimach
zerogates @ 2008-04-22 19:51
shades destroy engie, all ill say
alpha320 @ 2008-05-26 15:03
This can t stop karaoke soldiers :P
alesicis @ 2009-07-04 18:47
well equipped atrox shades do well against us, but destroy is an exageration, we faceroll soldiers
houserocker @ 2009-07-05 11:19
Don't need to be Atrox shade to kill an engy, worst evades of any prof. In my experience, if I see the shade coming and have cocoon up, the shade will die or have to run. If they surprise you or you have coon down and don't kite...kiss your ass goodbye if the shade knows what he is doing :)
Deadlykis @ 2009-12-06 22:31
Engy need's to be preety stuppid to just stay there and take dmg frome shade... if he kites+shares you you are doomed, engy has cocon/reflects/heals/pets with high AR/and what do you know AS pistole... shade has... 12k hp + a 5k absorb tatoo. I pvp'ed many engy's with my shade, couldn't beat the best ones...
