Effectively the opposite of an Amplify Shield, a Maylay Shield has no special effects as long as it is charged, but as long as it is depleted it will grant the user a set amount of bonus roid damage to all of their melee attacks. To utilize this, the user must keep taking damage to reset recharge delay, as well as using other means to regenerate health lost from the damage.
As the rarity increases, roid damage and shield recharge delay increase, allowing the user to utilize the roid bonus more effectively.
This shield may also come with a bonus perk of immunity to a given element if it spawns with a Maliwan capacitor or a Torgue capacitor for a reduction of explosive damage.
