… it only works after a save&quit, assuming you have a +Shield Capacity Stat on class mod or relic. Once the fake shield of your item stat gets destroyed, it won’t recharge on top of that.
So I believe this could make Rough Rider / Under Cover builds somewhat more valuable because all you need is one stat BUT it’s one-time-use only.
I’m wondering now, is there a way to recharge your fake shield, just like save&quit does?
Edit: maybe a tax return RR?
