The Aegis is a stationary area shield that blocks projectiles.
|Vision Radius (elmo)||200|
The Aegis protects a modest area with its bubble shield and links with other nearby shields to share charge. Units inside the shield can still be hit by AoE effects. Any instant damage that exceeds a shield's current hp will not be blocked, hence Shockleys always ignore Aegis shields.
The Aegis can transform itself into a walking area shield at an extra cost.
An area shield has a significant energy upkeep when recharging.
