So I’ve been doing alot of thinking about Moze’s viability in this tree recently, and one of the main topics I have been debating in my head is which type of shield will be best to equip her with. I see 2 different potentially strong approaches here:
#1 Turtle Shield. This tree has alot of skills for boosting shield capacity and Moze deals more damage the lower her health is, so it seems to me that a shield that has a huge capacity and lowers you own health might work really well on her. The downside is that Turtle shields have slow regen speeds and delays, which could really hurt you in TVHM where enemies are going to be hitting harder, once your shield drops and Tenacious Defense procs to restore 40% of you shield, you need to get your shield back to 100% before Tenacious Defense will proc again, and that could be difficult with a turtle shield since they regen incredibly slowly, it might be impossible to get a turtle shield back to 100% during combat except by entering Iron Bear with the Full Can of Whoop-Ass skill, though you can’t do that often since Iron Bear has such a long cooldown.
#2 Tediore Shield- Tediore shields have low capacity, but really fast regen speeds and delays, you can typically get a Tediore shield back to 100% in 2 seconds or less. Moze’s Behind the Iron curtain skill improves her regen speed and delay, which will lower that even more. The upside of this is that you will be able to get back to 100% shield much faster so that your Tenacious Defense safety net will be restored. The downside is that if you take any damage at all, regen will be interrupted, and since you have lower capacity you will be that much more vulnerable. DoT effects in particularly could really hurt this strategy by preventing any regen for a long period of time.
So, what do you guys think the better option will be? Or is there another Shield type entirely that you think will work well on Moze?
