the prefix doesn't really matter on sal like at all so what ever suits your playstyle potent is for damage binary is for two bullets those ones are probably the best but it doesn't really make a difference

Since it's Maliwan, you want the elemental chance.. so Potent

Maliwan Grip, Binary prefix, is the best for slag chance and DPS.

I get along fine with my Maliwan Grip, Expeditious prefix (Fire rate). It's a little more ammo-efficient.

No specific parts. Just slag. I can get up to 5 million on my gunzerker, using the miss moxxi's prefix.

The grip is more important than the prefix, because the right grip can increase slagging chance.

It needs to be the Maliwan grip.

Then Expedious and Binary are both pretty good. Potent, not so much. The top two functions of the Rubi are self-healing and slagging. Potent increases base damage, but doesn't help with slagging. Expedious and Binary both help with slagging too.

If you're going to offhand it, all it needs to be is slag. Because then you use another, much more powerful gun like the Unkempt to deal all the damage and receive mondo heals.

I have a perfect Potent Rubi with a Maliwan grip, and I've never had an issue with slagging as you said.

Binary is the best prefix for damage AND slagging.

Potent is the damage accessory, but it's not as good mathematically as Binary in terms of damage. That's true for pretty much any pistol, in fact.

Level 50 numbers
Binary dps: 17000
Potent dps: 13468

Binary is also the best prefix for applying status since every trigger pull is 2 bullets, for an adjusted 46.5% chance to slag per trigger pull compared to the 26.9% of Potent or Expeditious. Slagga is the best slag SMG for the same reason, it shoots 3 slag bullets per shot instead of 1.

However, Expeditious is still better than Potent for slagging because Fire Rate is the best stat aside from multiple projectiles and base slag chance for this.
