Notes[edit | edit source]

It is possible with Backlash to bounce the ball lightning attack back at an Ascendant. This requires the central orb in the ball lightning attack to impact the biotic aegis shield for it to be reflected. However, this can be a risky move during combat and if the central orb is not reflected, the orange lightning surrounding the orb will still cause damage.
