Overview[]

Energy Aura is one of the powersets. It is a Scrapper, Brute, Stalker and Sentinel secondary power set.

You can surround yourself in powerful defensive Energy Auras that can deflect your foes attacks. Like other defensive powers, Energy Aura powers do not reduce the damage you take, but rather reduce your chance of getting hit by deflecting your foes attacks. Energy Aura offers good defense to all attack types, but offer superior defense to Energy based attacks. However, Energy Aura offers no defense to Psionic attacks.
