  • Maximum Recharge Speed: +60% (Recharge Speed), +40% (Damage)

Player Notes Edit

  • Because of the extreme recharge time of Biotic Orbs, it is highly recommended to keep your weapon load out light and as close to 200% as possible; this will allow the recharge time to be about 8 seconds instead of 24 seconds (or roughly 19 seconds at Rank 2 and above), allowing them to be used as an attack properly.
    • Biotic Orbs will speed up its own cooldown as long as the Orbs are active. With +200% power recharge speed from loadout, Biotic Orbs will further reduce the cooldown from between roughly a half-second to one second depending on evolutions.
  • Alternatively, the orbs can be used akin to Blade Armor or Bloodlust — set-it-and-forget-it powers. Because they increase the recharge speed of other powers, the volus can then focus on using Stasis/Biotic Charge and Shield Boost as often as possible.
