to boost her shield regeneration. Once the shield recharge from the arcane starts it is not interrupted by damage. This recharge is also increased by mods like Fast Deflection. Utilizing Gara's naturally high damage resistance from her

Weapons

There are no mandatory weapons for this build, however something to deal with Nullifiers quickly is very nice. Besides that, picking weapons is a matter of personal preference. Here are my choices: Akstilleto Prime for Nullifiers and the Lesion for dealing with crowds.

Cost: 75
Warframe: Gara

. Also worth noting is that you can cast it on allies to grant them the damage reduction and on enemies to increase the damage they take.

Variations

For the second arcane slot you can run whatever you want. I decided to go for a Barrier set, because it compliments the shield gimmicks nicely. It is also possible to do a life-based variant of this build, but that would require a set of Arcane Grace, which is a lot more expensive than Aegis.

Counters

This build's main counter is the Nullifier - it can take everything else in the game on. Another limiting factor for it is the strength of the weapons you pick - Gara's abilities themselves deals little to no damage with this setup.

Just because it's unique doesn't mean it's good. Building entirely around shield regen ignores everything that makes her kit good, for the sake of a gimmick. Yes, this build will do what it says, but there's so much more that Gara is capable of.

well, it's unusual, could benefit greatly from the addition of some of here usual mods, ie, way more duration and a bit more efficiency, and an actual stat-stick, but the application of the arcane+shield mods is novel, to me anyway.
