Preparation is a basic Defence ability. When activated each attack the player takes within the next 10 seconds reduces the remaining cooldown of Resonance by 3 seconds. It is the only ability whose sole purpose is to affect another ability.
Preparation requires a shield to use, and if the shield is taken off while preparation is still active, the effect will be cancelled.
Preparation used to have a cooldown time of 5 seconds. This was later changed to 20 seconds, making it much less effective.
