Shields are a buffer that absorb damage before a legend starts losing health. Shields are gained by equipping a Body Shield.svg Body Shield, which grants the player anywhere from 2-4 bars (depending on rarity) or an Evo Shield.svg Evo Shield, which grants 2-5 bars (depending on the Evo stage); each bar absorbs 25 points of damage. They do not automatically regenerate (with the exception of Wattson's Spark of Genius.svg Spark of Genius and Interception Pylon.svg Interception Pylon), but can be replenished by using shield-restoring items or by equipping an undamaged body shield or Evo shield.
