Emergency Shield is still one of the most used helmet abilities in the game. It can be used through entire fights, providing huge sustain. To make using it more strategic, the shield is now only at full strength for targets below 40% health. This reduces its average strength, while keeping it as a strong save for low-health allies.
Energy Shield's combination of survivability and energy sustain was excessive. Its duration has been reduced, making activation timing more important.
