I know Gearbox are already working on this, but here are my ideas for disabling Guardian Ranks. The main culprit in my opinion is Shield Reboot (killing an enemy triggeres shield recharge), which is very powerful for most builds but terrible for roid shield builds. I haven’t unlocked it yet for this very reason, but in theory it should be terrible and I’ve seen other players who have unlocked it complaining bitterly about it (please correct me if I’m wrong).
Now if there’s simply one on/off switch for the entire Guardian Rank stuff (similar to BL2), this would still be terrible because only because of this one perk you’d lose everything else too, giving your character an even greater disadvantage.
Ideal would be if you could just disable each reward individually (click on the icon and it’s grey), that would solve all problems. It would also allow players to disable everything else they don’t like (e.g. Hollow Point) but keep what they like.
“Even more ideal” would be if disabling them would also not be account-wide but tied to each character. So by default they’re all on, but you can turn off Shield Reboot just for your Melee Amara – so you won’t have to turn them on/off every time you switch characters.
Comments and ideas welcome.
