Shield Recommendations

#1Dr_GlorydaysPosted 5/12/2013 10:19:16 AM
Okay, so basically I recently got to level 61 with my mechromancer, and I've found that with all the lv61 shock weapons I have, I don't really care for the damage boost of the Bee anymore. I want a shield that can boost my durability a little more. I was leaning towards a Transformer to keep with the shock theme, but I don't really know a lot about the effectiveness of the shield. Any suggestions?

it is regular strumming, but instead of a pick, or your fingers, you use a slice of cheesecake.. it gets prety messy, therefore: dirty strumming. ~ kazater

I always recommend the standard purple tediore shield, either the prefix "quick" or "expanded."

They have low capacities, but the recharge rate and delay are amazing. My shield easily recharges to max between hits unless I'm completely swarmed.

If you can get a Transformer go with that.

In UVHM I've had the most durability with a plain, high capacity Turtle Shield.

If you like shock damage, the Black Hole is a fantastic shield for Gaige. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is also amusing, though it probably doesn't have that great utility.

The Transformer's really nice, especially to keep you from shocking yourself with a shock Norfleet.

I'd recommend a Sham or a Neogenator for UVHM, though. They don't fit the shock theme as well (and this is something I'm also into) but offer more survivability.

Black Hole/Transformer for the shock theme.

Flame of the Firehawk/Deadly Bloom/Hide of Terra if you have sharing is caring and want some fun.

Negenator/Evolution for health regen.

Ah, I totally forgot about the black hole. The Foreman drops it, correct?
