I haven't tried it yet. I'm a fan of not dying, so I've been staying away from them, but it'd be cool to know if it's a game-changer. So anyone use them?

Also curious. Don't have a Zero yet but every time I see one I think they were made for him.

I think there is a shield made specifically for I think but I don't know which one it is.
If you don't feed a troll attention eventually it starves to death. Forgive my spelling. Fat fingers, small phone.

Love Thumper. Recharge delay is like 2 minutes I think. Yes they're are very worth it as long as you have the skill that gives you health as you go.

Yes, there is a whole line of shields that give roid damage to your melee attacks when they are depleted. The question is if it's a very noticeable difference. I'm just about to be off to work, so I'll test it tonight if I don't get an answer.

I have a level 50 Zer0, spec-ed purely for melee.

I have equipped:

Law (+100% melee damage)
Love Thumper (+melee damage + nova melee damage)
Class Mod (+40% melee damage)
Relic (+20 melee damage)

But still, even with the roid damage, my Executes don't kill most of the enemies. Not worth it, in my opinion.

It depends, essentially.

Are you a sniper build? If so, then no. Absolutely not. What are you doing? That is silly.

Are you a melee build? Yeah, it probably would help out quite a bit.

Exception being if your non Roid shield is much, much higher capacity. A good defense can sometimes out do a good offense with characters designed to run right into the fray.
