When in battle it can be extremely hard to impossible to see if your shield is up or not. When the screen is flashing like crazy you cant see if your Colossus is holding it up. Or the shield meter.
It would be really helpful if we got some way to see if it's actually up or not. Be it a visual element or a clear sound indicated that it's up. The thing is that when fighting and your pressing allot of things at the same time. It seams like there's a global cooldown on raising the shield. Because I'm often fighting and flying and engaging with the shield all the time. But often it's not responding.
Either something's wrong or it's a global cooldown and is intended. Either way it's to hard to see if it's up.
