View Full Version : 7th Legion Shields are Janky...I think...

So I bought my first 7th Legion Weapon cache today... Came with a full synergy set. A Surge shield (Rare), 7th Legion Yamato (Epic), and Epic Amakuni (sword) :o.

Only problem is: The shield is at EGO level 1. That's ONLY 4999 points shy of this char's EGO! Hurray! The cap is a laughable 1011. I noticed this on the weapon cache that came with the DLC and thought nothing of it. Now, after receiving a different shield, I think there's a problem here. Anyone else have this problem?

*side note: There's a green contender shield surfing the RNG right now that also ALWAYS comes like this. (I forget which though. I think it's a "II D" variety...)

Noticed the same thing.

Not even sure if you need a screenshot or not. EGO level 1 isn't going to happen on any character. My guess is it will be corrected like the Rathus Parraba purple roll.

Yup, I got a shield in a cache too and it is also level "---".
The shield I got is a variation of the Rhino, which at 5k Ego would be nearly 2k shield. Instead it has just over 1500.

i got a legendary 7th legion focus shield which is also level -- (1) and has 1011 cap. what i dont understand is why would they do that other than to get on peoples t!ts.. there should be no level 1 items in game or atleast an option to re-ego your level 1 items (e.g. crappy 7th legion shields)
would be pretty cool to beable to re-ego your old items to your current level, obviously at a big price whether it be scrip or salvage.

Just another example of the quality of workmanship you can expect from the defiance team.

Of course the OJ I would get out of the 7th legion vendor would be a shield lol. The one that does the Melee DMG when shield recharges in all of its level 1 glory :(.

Something else I noticed with mine. It's an OJ shield with IV for the romal numeral. That means it should have a resistance of some sort. But it doesn't have one.

Sorry about that guys

That's cool that they seem to come in other variants at least. All of the ones I have gotten so far have been of the Hurricane variety.

Oh yeah that's the Rebel Contender II D shields. They will always come with no EGO requirement when you loot them.
