We tested last week in duels and Shield Chance doesn't work vs Kinetic nor Elemental:
I was surprised by the results because it makes Shield Chance a weak mechanic in PVP.
Let us know the results of your testing.
Yeah I got an Operative friend, just looking for a place to duel.
Will definitely be able to test Internal, Energy, and Kinetic. I'll see if I can find a sorc for Elemental.
This doesn't just suck for PvP, it sucks for everything. There is a LOT of other damage going around. Not to mention ST's reliance on what is already a pretty mediocre mechanic.
