I’m posting my build I’ve running now based on shield hps. I run a big boom blaster or front loader. They’re both good shields but I will be exclusive to the big boom when I find one with the +75% hit point and shield buff. I find the Skeksil pistol to be the most effective dps for my play style. Any weapon can be adopted providing there is a aoe/splash damage effect. Switching from scorching rpms to the iron bank may work better for some other weapons. Also big booms don’t need behind the iron curtain as much and those points could go to drowning in brass for dps or vice versa for front loader for shield recharge, also full can of whoop ass is recommended for front loaders as well. You can use whatever ib weapons you want, but I usually jump out immediately and ignore in altogether except for procs.
Skeksil set up
Guardian ranks I have all.
Gear I use :
After ib exit
All pictures are in sanctuary and further shield hps comes from phalanx doctrine.
Ideal bonuses are :
And whatever you like.
Note the anoint with 120% splash damage after ib exit provides a sizable increase in shields too for some reason .
I stream on twitch now and have a YouTube account with playruns at m3 tvhm, but I
’m still pushing story so most content is easy.

Edit : an alchemist will produce 100s of shield boosters for little damage to you and ok damage.
