How is this supposed to work? If you use regular click it obviously creates a shield that allows you to absorb beams at the cost of ki. But then if you press right click the shield starts to fade and you eventually release a blast type attack that does almost no damage. Was this attack put in broken or do you have to absorb a beam in order to give the shield attack blast more damage? Right now I could see using his shield to absorb energy attacks and keep people from meleeing me but it seems about useless with the block feature.

If the shield eats a strong beam, then the blast you release will mess things up pretty bad.

Yeah, it'll do alot of damage if you manage to hit someone directly but it has a very small blast radius. I don't think it really got finished, but it can be useful to use while you're building up to go ssj.

The biggest problem with the attack is that it doesn't behave as other attacks do -- It's impossible for someone to know how the attack fully functions without being told, seeing it first hand, or stumbling upon it themselves.

Basically its like this.

The shield absorbs damage in to KI. The the projectile has the strength of the damage absorbed. So if you shoot it without absorbing anything it doesnt do much, but shoot it after absorbing a big beam, and it pretty much has the force of that beam.

What about radius?
Is it affected by absorbing beams?

You know im not sure. One could easily find out in a server though (as long as you have 1 person who cooperates)

I can't recall the radius ever being particularly large after absorbing beams. Then again, most people just detonate their beam next to the shield.

Nah, as far as I remember the radius on it was always pretty non-existent. If you didn't hit them head on with it, it wouldn't do any damage at all unless they were literally an inch away from the blast. And even then it would do a small fraction of the damage.
