    Shield Clarification?

    I am unsure what to be aiming for, I have been looking for a Legendary Shield for some time now. Problem is I recently found two EGO 909 Shields:

    Hurricane Regenerator II D
    +25% HP Regeneration
    Capacity 1102
    Recharge/Sec 70%
    Recharge Delay 6


    &

    Ironclad Regenerator IID
    +25% HP Regeneration
    Capacity 1654
    Recharge/Sec 10%
    Recharge Delay 6


    Now I know I'm pretty low level still and things will improve as my EGO improves, but what is the opinion on what is "better" ? It's probably based on play style, but I am doubting I will find a Shield with 1500+ Capacity AND a quick recharge time/delay.

    In the meanwhile I have been using my older EGO 503
    Ironclad Regenerator III D
    +25% HP Regeneration
    DMG Resistance: Biological
    Capacity 1625
    Recharge/Sec 10%
    Recharge Delay 6


    Thoughts?

    Respark. Nothing better than a Respark for PvE.

    Okay cool... soooo, is that look for more capacity or more regen speed? I don't think I've seen a Respark as yet.

    I use a Ironclad Regen III D for everything...it does it's job and I do mine lol!!

    It's all based on personal opinion and playstyle...

    I roll in like a tank..i'd rather have more protection than anything else... when my shild start beeping i find some cover for a few seconds and move on.

    I'm an overcharge guy.. i have my perks set up around being able to take damage lol. Usually i can kill the mob before they get me when i have my nice orange glow. my one buddy is all about the repsarks though.

    I say go with whatever fits your playstyle.

    With finding decent nades or shields, they've usually been from Arkfall drops/rewards.

    Does the higher EGO effect the radness of my found loot? Or can it be awesome at any EGO?
    - I ask as I have enough KC for two Tier 3's or one Tier 4 Lock Boxes, should I buff up to EGO 1000 as it may hold better rewards? or is that always going to be the case and I'll be like a dog chasing it's tail when it comes to purchasing boxes?

    Resparks are the best imo. Theyre all about the mid-ground in every stat. I like my shield to be coming back up soon as possible, so a 3-second delay with a 2-second 80% recharge usually gets me back in the fight fast. Get behind a rock, count to 5, run back in.

    Just do the math, essentially. your shields posted, Hurricane - 7 seconds from shield break to 70% recharge. Ironclad - 16 seconds from break to 100% recharge... My Respark atm is 5 seconds to 80%.

    I believe the Respark is a higher Cap then the Hurricane but im not sure. But you can see its a faster Recharge from break.


    Yes, and no, EGO affects loot... When you start, yes the guns slowly get better, in a sense. The stats get minimally better (not Damage*), or you get more loot with a Synergy on them, or bonus stats... But mainly its Mod Slots.

    You will build up, from 1 mod open, to 2, to 3, up to all 4 slots being open... Then it dies back to 1... @2900 EGO, im only getting 2-slot weapons.

    Its a very odd loot system and someone else might be able to explain it better.
