Question about Krieg's Hellborn tree & the Inflammable shield prefix

#1Flame_Hound173Posted 5/7/2013 10:22:48 PM
This may seem like a stupid question, but I thought of this after farming for an Inflammable Flame of the Firehawk for Krieg (since I do intend to get him), and after I got a decent one (I think), this question came to mind:

Since the shield is Inflammable and prevents burn DoT damage, does that also prevent Krieg from setting himself on fire?

Like I said, this may seem like a stupid question, but I'm unaware of whether or not setting yourself on fire and burn DoT would be the same. Since Krieg is not out yet, I'm not sure if anyone would know the answer to this question, but I figured I'd ask regardless.

I'd ask the PS3 board, as some people there have had him for a while now

I posted your question in the Krieg sub-forum on the Gearbox forums too.

It might be a different kind of fire. Similar to the way petes elements can still get you if you're inflammable or alkaline

You mean his nova? Because they definitely do protect against his nova.

Why people don't complain about THAT being broken and instead moan about the Sandhawk and Bee is beyond me.

Why not hide of terramorphous for krieg? Flame nove/spike + roid Damage + fire immunity? Seems perfect

No idea about the fire immunity thing that you're asking though
