Level 53 Krieg looking for advice and possibly a bit of help with shields and farming, thank you!

Hello! I played Borderlands 2 a long time ago, but decided to get back into it recently while playing as Krieg. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to offer advice or tips on how to go through UVHM with a better build, and what builds would be viable for OP8? I have looked all over the internet for different builds and everyone seems to be split on what is best for him. I am currently building him with the Mania and Bloodlust trees. I have also been told he is good for killing raid bosses quickly with bloodsplosion, and I am wondering if that is also true?

I also wanted to ask about shields, and which would be best for any given builds. I have looked into the ‘Love Thumper’ and I enjoy it but it does wear off fast. I am currently going for a sham for farming ‘Pyro Pete’s Bar’ and I later want to get the ‘Hide of Terramorphous’, but are any of these good options? I know that the sham is hard to get as well, and my friend is luckily a Zero and can bore pretty easily into bunk3r!

Sorry for the big swarm of information, but these are questions that I have been unable to find answers too, and I was hoping that someone could offer advice on any of my plans for krieg.

Thanks to anyone who helps me out, and I am sorry for asking so many questions.
