Also, for it to work people need to be hitting you (not an issue when solo i know) - if it proc'd off guard damage that would be another issue entirely.

Whereas the extra dmg from the power gen is helping all the time, to kill stuff faster, which also reduces damage in its own way.

Would be nice if we had a working combat log to get some solid data behind these theorys/observations.
Too many things are RNG based. I notice the shield when it goes off. It has made a difference versus certain classes when multiple people are beating on me.

How many times has it made it difference? Hard to tell, yeah. ATM, I usually run power generator but I'll switch if I'm taking a variety of damage. In this movie the opposing team was coordinated so they were on healers. However, I'm known on my server due to posting movies and that draws a lot of attention at times. Even in a large crowd I often get picked out for focus fire.

Just want to add, that without healing, damage trumps survivability in this game IMO.
