      This ability is awesome, it saved me countless times, and I was able to fight big guys without finding cover, but the shield break fast when fighting normal enemies.

        Anybody able to do some testing to see how the calculation is actually done for the Backlash health increase? There are two possible methods (tab-delineated format).

        Rank 1 Rank 3 (+35%) Rank 4 (+40%) Rank 5 (+40%)
        Total % Increase 35% 35% + 40% = 75% 35% + 40% + 40% = 115%
        Calculation 350+(350*0.35) 350+(350*0.75) 350+(350*1.15)
        Health 350 472.5 612.5 752.5
        Actual % Increase 35.00% 29.63% 22.86%

        Rank 1 Rank 3 (+35%) Rank 4 (+40%) Rank 5 (+40%)
        Calculation 350+(350*0.35) 425.5+(472.5*0.4) 661.5 + (661.5*0.4)
        Health 350 472.5 661.5 926.1
        Actual % Increase 35.00% 40.00% 40.00%
