This is my main build for Aegis.

Safe Travel/Heat Transfer

These cards combo very well together for survivability. You can shield yourself twice in a short time with proper shield usage.

Last Stand

This card is always valuable for the sustain/survivability it provides. I recommend giving it 2-4 points.

Dire Need

This card may be personal preference to some but I find value with the movement speed for both peeling for my supports and surviving in general. For example, shield dancing and blocking a Makoa ult. Or shielding Tyra ult while being able to move under cover/move to my support in time before getting shredded down. Overall a great card in my opinion. I recommend 1-3 points on this.

Running Start:

My favorite Level 1 filler card. Fits well with Safe Travel/Heat Transfer combo. Move speed to get behind cover quicker and/or to chase down someone trying to escape with low HP. If you don’t want Running Start, other good level 1 filler cards are Cavalier, Hot Pursuit, Immovable Object, or Launch.

Recommended Item Buys:

Rejuvenate (Always)
Resilience (Almost always fighting vs CC)
Haven (Good in general but especially vs spammy damage or big bursts - viktor/tyra/jenos ult/etc)
Nimble (Good if you’re having trouble catching up with faster targets, also map dependent)
Guardian (I really only go this item if I’m running a loadout with the towering barrier card but I still don’t find it that great. You can run it if you want however if you like buffing your shield.)
Master Riding (Strong on big maps like Ice Mines)
Morale Boost (Fun item in onslaught or if you need faster ults vs certain comps with big damage burts - Bomb King/Betty/etc)
Chronos (Can be good if you don’t need another specific item. Combos with above charge cd shield build.)
Veteran (Never bad to buy. Good with Cavalier card if you use it.)
Bulldozer (Situational: If vs an annoying Ying, or Barik with turret talent, Azaan walls, etc)
