Hope u will enjoy this iron bear build kiddos.
if you see some points are missing it’s because i dont have anymore (obviously)((?))
Yep, no grenade abuse
Fuel Drain when u use weapons: -30.0%
Fuel Returned when u kill something: Up to 6.0%
FIRE IN THE SKAG DEN
Bonus Incendiary Damage: +9%
This affects iron bear too giving it more damage, very useful against flesh
+12% chance to double Splash Damage Radius
this goes very synergy with the vampyr skill allowing you to easily hit multiple targets together and reloading the iron bear armor more quickly. Most people avoid this skill for the risks you have of hitting yourself, in this build u dont have to worry about it with moze, and for the iron bear, well u just have to take some distance between u and mobs, u can do that with ease using the jump. Plus, the iron bears weapons can be very frustrating because of their low accuracy, so this skill can help u a lot

for the iron bear guns i recommend the explosive miniguns for mobbing, and the vanquisher only for bosses
So at this point we should talk about the guardian ranks ability, stats and the cooldown of the iron bear.
IronBear deafult cooldown is 100 seconds
If u have cooldown bonuses on relic and classmod and a little bonus from the guardian ranks would be around 60 seconds (with lv 57 items)
NOW, there’s a guardian ranks skill called “topped off” in the green tree, with that until ur shield is fully charged the cooldown speed increases a lot
With all this things and a fully charged shield the cooldown is 26 seconds. can decrease more if u deal splash damage with the EXPLOSIVE PUNTUATION skill active, actually can be from 15 to 20 seconds with that.
YEAH 15 SECONDS FOR UR IRON BEAR
The next question is, how can i keep the shield to the maximum and how can i keep moze alive without the grenade skills?
Let’s talk about the
The best choice is the kyb’s worth, electric and binary with “+1% weapon damage for every consecutive hits” anointment which I found more constant and incredibly powerful
I recommend to use different variants of kybs or at least other maliwan guns so u can benefit from the BOTTOMLESS MAGS skill.
The Blast Master is the best, u can deal 100% splash damage with moze AND ironbear , is the best way to deal more damage with the mech, but u need one with at least 3 points on VAMPYR and the actionskill cooldown bonus.
Why not the Raging Bear?
consumption decreases enormously with that one but u deal less damage, so there’s no point in that, if u have to shoot a lot more at the mobs to take the kills u will consume a lot anyway, and u dont have any VAMPYR buff.
Plus the raging bear is not a world drop, farming billy the annointed for that can cost a lot of time, especially because u need one with actionskill cooldown rate bonus
Transformer. the only one u can use for this specific build and the reason of no grenade abuse.
The best anointment is the +75% shield and health after exit from the ironbear for 25 seconds
Obviously Deathless cause double of the shield capacity, u need actionskill cooldown rate bonus even there.
it’s not important but u need the +25% weapons, ability and grenade damage bonus anointment.
Hex is good.
So, there are a lot of things to say about that, make urself comfortable.
THERE WILL BE NO MORE IMAGES FROM HERE
i was joking
Since the shock damage actually recharge the transformer shield u can shoot at urself with an electric splash damage gun (binary kybs) to recharge it instantly.
Yeah u just need to shoot on ur feet , its even easier with TORGUE-CROSS PROMOTION skill and u can do it all night long thanks to the BOTTOMLESS MAGS tree. while u do this ur gonna survive at almost all the attacks from mobs (except for wotan and few others) AND u can keep active the topped off skill from the guardian ranks, actually since u deal fire damage too with the splash u have to keep shooting urself to keep the shield at max .
Unfortunately this is not considered splash damage but u can shoot at mobs too while you’re not in danger, that’s an easy way to get back in the iron bear in less than 20 seconds. Plus there is the AUTO-BEAR which will distract the mobs for the first 15 seconds.
The anointment that i recommended previously on the shield is special actually, listen well:
if u recharge ur action skill cooldown within those 25 seconds and u get into the ironbear once again, that mother ■■■■■■ get the bonus from the anointed shield = almost 100k plus armor baby, and not only for 25 second but for all the iron bear duration, not even with the mendel shield u can get that stats.
Now, if u use the transformer with the right anointment, ur shield gonna be huge too
transformer lv 57 = 21k
with deathless = 42k
with guardian rank stats u can easily reach 44/45k
with that bonus u can reach 60k of capacity, at this point should be more easy for u to keep shooting at enemies and keep urself alive until the mech is ready
About the RUSH OFFENSIVE ability, u can use it to run away while u shoot urself and keep moze alive from multi damages. It’s so much useful against Wotan cause u can run from his mortar attacks without any risk, u just have to look at the mini map to know where ur going.
When ur going to shoot with moze throw a nade so u can use the +25% buff damage from the anointment. U can use it for the iron bear too but after the 6 seconds the bonus will disappear unlike the shield one.
-An exellent build for mobbing, u can do slaughtern shaft and 3000 with ease and fun
-It’s a bit slow to kill bosses, but for many of them u can use the zheitsev’s eruption ( for gigamind or traunt for example)
-U can do maliwan takedown, u only have to take care at the second part of the boss fight
-U can’t do TRUE maliwan takedown cause enemies deals too much damage, it’s hard even to get to wotan but u can do valkiryes
-This build got so much potential, when the level cap increases you can make it even stronger, especially by taking advantage of the red tree u could increase transformer shield capacity a lot and u could use DESPERATE MEASURES skill at the best with deathless relic, and that work for iron bear too.
BUT MOST IMPORTANT
WHERE’S MY NIPPLE SALAD?!?!?!??!?!
