Gearbox: here’s some interesting roid shield mechanics good for not just melee but also movespeed, fire rate etc.
For the love of god.
Anyway, my suggestion is to add a unique roid shield with a recharge rate of zero. It would prevent the guardian skill from messing with you, moze’s aoe shield recharge from messing with you, amara’s (!) shield recharge delay skill from messing with you…
And they could also make it a booster shield, that way, you could get shields if you really need it for some reason. They could even have the boosters grant a mild, unique bonus, have the players do a balancing act between the extra melee damage and the booster’s effects (move speed, armor, cooldown rate, whatever).
