Is Fabled Turtoise worth it?

It's a legendary turtle shield with the highest capacity in the game, but also slows down your movement. What do you think about it? Especially those that have it. I was thinking of farming for it, to use on my Siren, since she has a skill to boost even that insanely high capacity.

I have Dysarthria. It's a Speech problem. Your question is answered now.

It isn't very good.

That Siren skill also doesn't apply to the Tortoise how you think it does.

Ward won't boost it's capacity?

It boosts base capacity. The Tortoise gets most of its capacity from the red text effect.

Hoplite should get a boost to total capacity. Get that instead.

Not saying it's the best, but it has it's uses. Throw it on a Gunzerker and farm Pyro Pete all you want. I just stand right in his face and drop him solo. It's one of those things that can be fun to play with time to time, but no I wouldn't roll with it as my everyday shield so to speak.

Another thing to keep in mind when/if you use it. Your jump distance is based on your speed so you wont make some of the longer jump unless you unequip it.

Correct!
With sufficient BAR, it will have a very noticeable and ever growing lead. Not to mention it will not slow you nearly as much unless you havena full party wearing them. In that case, the capacity would be staggering though.
