Regenerate health while in shroud. If your life force is above the threshold, your shroud will activate if you would take a lethal blow.

— In-game description


While in downstate as a Scourge, Desert Shroud is activated, granting Barrier and pulsing damage upon reaching the threshold.
The number displayed next to the life force threshold percentage is incorrect. It is based on your max health, rather than your max life force. The actual threshold is correctly based on your life force.
  • Will not trigger on lethal falling damage.
