*** does it do when not spec'ed?

All it says is "absorbs moderate amount of damage? *** does that mean? All the other class defense ability's tell you exactly what they do?

Does it absorb X dmg then turn off? or does it absorb X dmg for the duration?

Absorbs X amount of damage and shuts off. It's like sage/sorc shield.

It absorbs X damage then wear off, or it will wear off after 15 second, which ever comes 1st.

Depend on stats. Around 1500 and 1700 at level 50, I don't have the formula in mind.

The value is not important. It's about 2/3 of a sorc bubble. And varies as you gain tech healing bonus.
Typically about 2000-2500 absorption.

It is more along the lines of 3k-3.5k as a OP healer in DG/Camp gear. It use to be rather useless before they changed it to scale with power, but after that update it is very useful.

I believe this is the formula you are looking for
