So I am building through the Mania tree, and I went with Silence the Voices, oh dear lord, what a mistake, now I know some people swear by it, but after killing myself 3 times, and hitting myself in the face 4 times in a row, on multiple occasions, I have had to spec out of it, I just wish Legendaries had a drop rate equivalent of StV, I would be rolling in Legendaries.
Still staying with Mania tree, just got the capstone, and I just finished Captain Scarletts, level 31 (I had out-levelled the main quest so figured I would actually get an expansion done before I out-levelled that too.
Anyway I have Captain Blades Manly Man Shield, Rapier, Otto Idol and Orphan Maker, plus the Love Thumper
Problem is the love thumper is about level 19, while Captain Blades Manly Man Shield is about Level 29ish (im at work, don’t know exact levels of my head)
So I am trying to work out, while the Love Thumper is down, I add about 285 roid damage, and of course, do the Nova, is Captain Blades Manly Man shield better for the melee? I don’t know how much damage it’s adding, but I have Strip the Flesh, so I am guessing, as the Manly Man Shield adds explosive damage, it will benefit, and the Nova from the Love Thumper is only scratching enemies now.
With the Orphan Maker, plus you know, getting show, I can strip the shield of the Manly Man Shields pretty damn quick, but I don’t know which one I am better off with.
Anyone know? Gut says go with the manly man shield, and use all the Captain Blade gear, so I can be Pirate Krieg (I am using everything except the Manly Man shield currently).
And a side question, now I have what I need from Mania, and like charging in Hitting stuff, am I bets going into Hellborn now? Or if I go with the manly man shield, get all the shield regen slowing abilities until its worth respeccing so I have the capstone of Mania and Elemental Elation/Fire Fiend
Apologies for the somewhat rambling post.
Thanks In Advance for your help
