Does it increase gun damage, proc damage, or both?

Or does it just increased gun damage vs shields?

It increases both.

Just tried it. It's a lie. My +24% smg damage relic boosts my SMG damage to 22k while Shock just leaves it at 15k. However, I do hit shielded enemies for 50k with my shock weapons (and the relic equipped).

I just tried to retest it, and you're right. It was a lie. I don't even have a shock relic. I had done some shock combo tests with my mechromancer not too long ago and thought that included a relic

I've performed a test with the following.

Tediore Plasma Caster (Shock.)
30% Tediore Damage VS 30% Shock Relic

Maliwan Plasma Caster (Shock.)
30% Maliwan Damage VS 30% Shock Relic

Hyperion Plasma Caster (Shock.)
30% Hyperion Damage VS 30% Shock Relic

In each test the Shock Relic dealt roughly 2K more damage compared to the weapon specific Relic.

Were you testing it against enemies with shields?

The test dummy. I believe he has no shields.

Yes I noticed that the shock gives more vs shields, but once the shield is gone, it seems to give NO bonus at all, while a damage relic for a weapon or manufacturer type gives a bonus at all times.

I'll try it again when I get home. I was testing it in combat... Maybe I'll just do the dummy.

I've never had an instance where the 30% damage Relic outdid the 30% Shock one. At least not on my Mechromancer.
