Borderlands the Presequel Athena Gladiator Level Up Guide
The first skill that Athena can unlock is probably the most important, namely -
- Kinetic Aspis - this skill shield will allow the heroine to use the shield to absorb all kinds of frontal damage, and then store a finite amount of the damage as energy, based on level. Athena will then throw the shield as an energy weapon towards the enemy once the required amount of energy is absorbed, before returning back to the heroine.
This skill is recommended only after the main shield fails, as it allows
Athena to use her elemental powers and her weapons to defeat the enemies
before falling back to the shield and throw tactics.
This skill is particularly useful when used against the second boss of the game
