Shields are made up of three parts, the body, the battery, and the capacitor. Each manufacturer makes each of these parts, all offering varying bonuses. Pangolin parts give massive capacity but tend to have lower recharge delays, rates, and bonus effects (such as amp damage). Hyperion parts have the lowest recharge delays but provide lower capacity, and pretty good bonus effects. Maliwan have low(est?) capacity, good recharge and delay, and the best bonus effects. The Bee with maximum amp damage is composed of all Maliwan parts apart from the body which is always Torgue. All Maliwan capacitors provide an elemental immunity to either corrosion, electrocution or burn damage (Torgue provide explosive resistance). Therefore, a maximum amp damage The Bee will always be immune to an elemental DoT.
Same principle applies to all shields, though some shields only allow for specific or a small selection of parts. For example, the Neogenator can't have a Maliwan capacitor, and Hyperion is the next best for the bonus effect. An 86% Neogenator is a Maliwan body, Maliwan battery and a Hyperion Capacitor. If you want a little more capacity, Anshin is the third best for bonus effects while providing good capacity, but the recharge delay will be longer. --- http://img356.imageshack.us/img356/8325/scrunchface2copyfx0.png http://www.xboxlc.com/cards/default/alle5.jpg

My Bee has a bit under 26k capacity and a bit under 41k Amp damage. --- "gman, you're the best! ^_^" - EarthLord_CJ http://vocaroo.com/i/s1laSXVD9qDd - You got a real purty mouth

The stats on mine look like Gman's. I have the blast proof. --- A pessimist is just a optimist with more experience.

If I remember correctly, my alkaline bee has the highest amp damage. I'll have to check it out and get back to you. I'll look up the stats on all of mine. I know I have one of each. --- GT: JenMeister07

Alkaline, Grounded and Inflammable The Bee all tie for the highest amp damage. --- http://img356.imageshack.us/img356/8325/scrunchface2copyfx0.png http://www.xboxlc.com/cards/default/alle5.jpg
