Wicked Ward is a keystone passive skill.

  • Energy Shield Recharge is not interrupted by Damage if Recharge began Recently(refers to the past four seconds)
  • 50% less Energy Shield Regeneration Rate
  • 50% less Maximum total Recovery per Second from Energy Shield Leech

Spending energy shield with Blood Magic, Eldritch Battery or sacrifice mechanic (for life this mechanic can be found on, for example, Rathpith Globe Rathpith Globe or Dark Pact Dark Pact) does not count as taking damage.

Is Wicked Ward worth it?

Normally, Energy shield will stop recharging if the character takes damage. Wicked Ward can prevent energy shield recharge from being interrupted by damage if energy shield recharge began recently, but halves your energy shield regeneration and leech.

Energy shield recharge rate is a form of recovery and is by default: 20% of Energy Shield Recharged per second.

Energy shield will automatically begin to recharge if the character does not take any damage for a certain period of time. By default, the delay period for energy shield to begin to recharge is 2 seconds.

Therefore, It is worth to use Wicked Ward.
