Actually, Temporal Shield sounds like it doesn't protect you from any damage. If you take X damage from a hit during the 4 seconds it is up, you take X damage and get an effective HoT that heals you X health over 6 seconds (maybe X/6 health per second for 6 seconds). So you can still die when Temporal Shield is up...but if you don't die, any damage taken is healed up in 6 seconds.

Use it after Cauterise to make it do no damage at all.

I think that is exactly it, if you take 40k dmg in 4 seconds while it is up, you get healed 40k over 6 seconds when it ends. Provided you are still alive. It sounds good on paper but then when it ends and you are still taking all kinds of damage, not sure it's going to hold up. It sounds like it may be useful in PvE though as a help to healers who may be focused on the tank.

Calling it a Shield was probably the wrong move. It does sound very much like what you've described, a track and return effect. It'll be super effective if you know you're going to take some serious burst damage, both in PvE and PvP. As long as you can survive for 5 seconds, you're unlikely to die.

I would have thought that the 6 second HoT gets applied the moment the damage is taken while the shield is up

I agree with @Homeschool on the name. "Damage Capacitor" seems like a better description: all those hit points you lose get stored in the spell and are fed back to you over time. That sounds more like a level 600 Engineering schematic, though, so maybe "Temporal Recovery"?
