Yes, its a great suggestion!
No. (If this is your answer please elaborate)
I have been thinking about this for a while and finally decided ill make a thread about this.
Why is there no hp-bar for the shield of Electrician? Moraxus have one and was the first hero to introduce this addition to the game. Chtuluphant, gunblade, Kinesis then followed.
Is there a reason for this or is it simply forgotten by S2? To me, it just doenst make sense why some shields have a healthbar and some doesnt.
I think, however, that it would be helpful to know about how much health the shield actually has left. This might be positive and negative for it gives the enemy knowledge of whether or not Elec is for example a valid target in certain situations while the shield is up. But since elec is as we know a powerful hero this might even be a step towards better balance of the hero.
What do you guys think? Also remember that if you vote yes this has a higher chance of being implemented!

these are the little things that like to be forgotten.
S2 pls add this to make your game better ^^
HoN is a great game,
deal with it.

An honorable mention is also the shield gained from moas red ultimate-spell.
Another idea about this shield is to always make it start with 100% health instead of around 50% and so on, which it does on for example chtuluphant when you have consumed a creep.
Chtuluphant eats a catman champion; bar looks like this:
Chtuluphant eats a snotter; bar looks like this:
Instead, make it have "100% health" from the start regardless of what creep eaten, to make it less complicated. I assume the shieldbar has some kind of fixed max-hp or why does it work like this anyway?
When thinking about it this shieldbar needs a lot of tweaking

It's because enemies can see the bar too, not just you (IIRC). That's the major reason why most of these shield bars haven't been implemented. Moraxus' shield is an exception for some reason (I don't do the balancing or designing, can't give an explanation for this one).

Look for my highlighted text (important information) and grey text (interesting but not required information).
it might be because elec's shield isn't a 100% absorb like all the other shields there are atm.
it should still be possible to make a shield for it but it would require some work, also i suggest not to include it in the complete game but rather make a mod out of it since it is not neccessary that the opposing team can see youre amount of armor.
im sorry to say but i vote no for this one since the opposing team would have advantages for seeing the shield hp.
