Is it me or is Gearbox spending alot of time nerfing/buffing guns and grenade mods, but shields are just left alone.
There is such a large number of almost completely unused shields.
The biggest one for me is the Rough Rider.
The bonuses of 23% reduction and 35% max health is underwhelming because not enough mods have high enough bouses to max health or skills boosting health are just missing.
I would ballance by changing the figures to 25% Reduction and 100% Max Health
This would take the average players health up to around 30-35k health points while using this sheield.
Whereas the average player using a shield/hp combo build would have around a total of 50-55k hit points.
There are so many builds which could benefit from a buff to the rough rider, while also providing an option to add a challenge.
