Default Shock VS armor?

hey borderlanders,

we'v all being saying shock is bad against meat flopps but has any1 tested it on armor? does it take in account of the 50% dmg to flesh as well? or is it comletely different?

cuz after being in the forum for abit and checking out the mechanics of elements from numerous threads, it seems theyr totaly 3 different things, irelavently.

TYIA

Have you read "Elements, Multipliers, and You" ?
http://gbxforums.gearboxsoftware.com...ad.php?t=86431

Scan down for the "[FLESH AND SHIELDS]" for some quick info, but the whole post is extremely interesting.

Lance seem to take the shock dot longer than most.
My Shock Trooper and his Orion whoop a** on anything, but that's got tons of boosts going and all that...

As my Skirmisher, I tend to find fire is still better against Lance.

If you have a Nemesis (I have one with Invader scope and x4 Shock ) It chews through Lance like no tomorrow. Shock procs take their shield down and they are weak to Corrosive damage.

Default Re: Shock VS armor?

i am actuly going to look for one later when i get to lvl61 and finish knoxx, prob gona farm on TFC (thx to storm =D) i got one on my siren, but i dont feel like moving weapons around characters cuz it kinda deminishes the point of farming, and the fun too

bak on topic: i was actuly trying to figure out if shock did 90% dmg to armor as well, just like to flippy floppy flesh

like if u look on the "elements, multipliers and you" thread, it talks about the elemental dmg in terms of wat it hits, but at that stage of testing(considering the thread is kinda antique now) it didnt show any satistics for armor, so i was just wondering

it realy makes shock weapon alot less useful when all it's good at is against shield, which is only effective against eridians and lance probes, exception: orion

you forgot the other exception, though that may be because it is shock/corrosive, but it's still shock as the base bullet, which then splits into the corrosive bullet, so the nemesis is the other exception.

Shock weapons are great against Lance. In PT2, pre Knoxx, I blazed through Lance using a level 43 Maliwan shock revolver.

The Orion is an amazing gun too. I can't comment on the Nemesis, but I find the Tsunami underwhelming.

Shock vs armor: 22%
Incendiary vs armor: 20%
Explosive vs armor: 25%
Corrosive vs armor: 50%

Plus corrosive amplifes all damage taken and DOT chance by 15% for up to 20 seconds.
