Right, and that’s the issue. There are people who have been playing Destiny almost since launch who were deceived by this perk because it’s not something that is ever mentioned.
Yeah the health/shield bar has always kinda bugged me since d1. Would make a lot more sense if they were 2 separate bars. They don’t have to both appear at the same time— say once you lose all your shield, a red bar appears and replaces the white shield bar. I think that would make the UI a whole lot more intuitive than to have your players assume 2/3 of this random white bar is shield and 1/3 is health without ever mentioning it.
