Ability: Capacitance Bleed
While active, Capacitance Bleed will cause all of your outgoing Energy Damage to be increased by an amount that scales with your current Shield Capacity. However, each time an Energy Weapon is fired, it will drain a small amount of your current Shield Capacity to power this additional damage.
This ability cannot be activated unless currently have at least 20% total shield capacity, across all four shield facings. It will automatically shut off when your shield capacity reaches this lower threshold. If not shut off automatically due to low shield capacity, it can be turned off manually at any time, or will last a maximum of 30 seconds.
