Steele is unpopular. Don’t see him often in PVP. However he was in one of my first crates and I have been using him often since. His bronze skill is cool - if you activate it and aim well you can activate it again before the 10 second duration expires. He’s often among my my best DPS;ers. His Silver skill is terrible.
However I haven’t upgraded him to Gold yet. I have just a handful of Gold heroes and I’m trying to get those that people recommend me to promote first: Heimlock, Mandrake, Halo and also Hideo which was a hit-or-miss for me that turned out being a miss.
I have a question about Steele’s Gold skill. If he hasn’t taken damage for 5 seconds he will shield himself and boost his damage + critical rate. Sounds good to me but not something I need right away.
However, and this is where my question starts, how is “not taken damage for 5 seconds” defined? If his shield takes damage, does that count as Steele taking damage? Like. If I shield myself and the shield doesn’t deplete, will I get a new shield after 5 seconds or shielding?
