    Why should aesthetics have anything to do with the spammability of a power?

      Which makes me wonder what exactly this statement means.​​

      May I ask which layer of defense Bastion now considers? I'm assuming it will account for the main Resistance layer provided by Defense Rating, Defiance, AoRP, etc., which should make this a minor buff to the gloves if you have at least 100% resistance.

      Edit: Whoops, double post. Sorry. Meant to be an edit.

      The bastion change is very interesting, but it would be helpful to know what defenses and how much bastion is supposed to take account for now when testing this power. Given that the shield before was pretty much instantly destroyed by anything, any amount would help, but some real figures would go a long way for testing for bugs and effectiveness.
