I really am enjoying this shield, have barley seen any talk about it at all though. I did some testing and noticed around a 30%+ damage reduction, so not that bad.

30%? When it is full I have noticed the resistance is phenomenal. I survived an accidental bonus package toss with it on, now that is saying something.

Through some testing using both the rough rider and blockade in dueling I found that the blockade provides the same resistance as the rough rider both when it is fully charged and depleted.

The classic has always been the Warrior, who drops the CC which is phenomenal at taking down the Warrior even without the Bee. All them crit spots... with a properly aimed shot you can hit them all in one pull of the trigger.

Short version: the Blockade's "full" and "down" damage resistance is the same, 27.5%. That's reasonably higher than the Rough Rider's 20%.
