Special Weapon Effects
What a fabulous window treatment. – Adds bonus Explosive Damage to all Melee Attacks. This ability stays in effect, even when shields are totally depleted.
Curse of the Elementals! – Wearer takes increased damage from elemental sources.
Usage & Description
- While the flat explosive bonus may not be as appealing as the Love Thumper's, it provides significantly better overall protection, as it functions as a normal shield except against elemental attacks. Players finding themselves in need of better melee, without wanting to go with the rather niche performance of the Love Thumper, may find good use in this shield.
The explosive damage is equal to 40% of the character's base melee damage. Melee skills, relics, and weapon bonuses do not increase the shield's potency.
The 40% base melee damage trait does not extend to Deathtrap, when the shield is equipped to Deathtrap via the Sharing is Caring ability the explosive damage it adds to his melee is miniscule and has no real effect on his damage output.
- The shield's flavor text, "What a fabulous window treatment," is quote from the movie In & Out. The movie's main character attempts to restore his heterosexuality by using a self-help cassette tape and is tricked by the above line.
