Best Shield for Krieg

#1Olegslayer26Posted 7/5/2013 9:01:35 PM
If I have a Krieg build that focuses on the Mania and Hellborn skill trees, what would be everyone's opinion on the best shield to use?

I'm currently running with the Tough Rider, as the bonus health and damage resistance, along with 0 shield capacity is amazing for Krieg.

Love Thumper. Assuming you're talking about melee, and you should be..

Would I want the non-inflammable version of the firehawk, or the regular version? I remember trying a fire-immune shield before, and I couldn't light myself on fire and get any of the bonus effects.

Regular it works best because the other one doesn't let you catch on fire
If you I can give you a shield of mine

I like the Rough Rider in co-op. Using Redeem the Soul doesn't down you, though it brings your health to critical so you can RtB.

Think you answered your own question there. You don't want Inflammable (which prevents Burn DoT) if you're Hellborn because you do want to set yourself on fire.

Inflammable means flammable? What a country! Wait..
I said runt.

I use Love Thumper for solo and Rough Rider for co-op

Yeah, inflammable actually means flammable. Gearbox didn't do their research when naming fire resistant shields.

Krieg doesn't even have to try with Flame of the Firehawk.
