  • The increase in shield recharge delay facilitate the usage of Roid Damage from Maylay Shields, such as Hide of Terramorphous or Order.
  • The increase in shield recharge delay also helps Krieg take advantage of bonuses from other skills in the Mania skill tree such as Empty the Rage, Fuel the Rampage, Feed the Meat, and Salt the Wound.
  • However, the skill does not work while using Krieg's action skill, Buzz Axe Rampage. The bonus to fire rate does not affect how fast the buzzaxe can be thrown like all other fire rate bonuses would, and the shield recharge delay isn't added. [citation needed]
