Default Better idea than nerfing the bee shield

instead of making the one item in the game that actually allows you to kill enemies in PT2.5 crap why not boost other Legendary shields. i want my legendarys ive farmed for so long to be extraordinarily good not just a little better than a purple one

Maybe add damage resistance and remove slow down from fabled tortise to make a shield that makes you very hard to kill

maybe a roid shield that boosts your health REDICULSLY high so you can actually use it

instead of making the best amp shield worse why not bring other types of shields to the same level and give alternatives, do you wanna kill everything or never die? the choice is yours.

It still won't be the same since The Bee is about saving time on bosses. Also Terra will still knock you off her little island, no matter the shield.

if your like me and dont play online much its a real downer to never be able to kill the bigger bosses, for me the bee dosent speed up the process, it allows the possibility, plus if you stand in the right spot terra will never knock you off

I know the spot and so do you. How are you not able to kill Terra without The Bee then? Of course it's still risky, but definitely doable.

Anyhow, I'd rather they stop the annoying knocking off the island thing - that **** is extra annoying to fight properly. By that point, why would you even need The Bee?

Instead of balancing one item that seems out of whack and doesn't even make sense with its name (A bee stings once and dies. A Bee shield stinging constantly with no drawback doesn't seem like it was intended based on its name. Also since it has a regen rate the same amount as the actual shield says to me that it was originally conceived to go completely away on amp damage, then returning a few seconds later to full.)

But besides that, instead of balancing one item, you're asking them to go through all the legendary shields and seriously improve all of them. Then building all content to compete with this new crop of shields, but also making any shield other than legendary unable to compete with the enemies in the expansions since they were balanced against a slew of "bee-strength" shields?

That's not really doable.

the game does not have to get harder because the BEST items in the game are better, isn't the point of farming the greatest stuff to have an easier time through the game? they cant expect everyone to have the best items but if you do they should allow you to massacre your enemies with them.

This is... getting tiresome..

....

I think with all the commotion in the trading Forums my patience may be thin tonight so I think I'll call it a night before I say something that's incredibly stupid and gets me in so much trouble, I can no longer fantasize about Lilith.. and Maya..

... And Moxxi.. and Steele..

... I'm pretty sure I had a point in there, somewhere.

So you propose instead of having just one game breaking item. All shields should become game breaking items?

I don't even
