[Evolution Variants]

The Evolution is a Seraph Adaptive Shield manufactured by Anshin. The Evolution can be obtained as a drop from Hyperius the Invincible or rarely by Master Gee the Invincible in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode. Furthermore, it can be purchased at the Seraph Vendor in Oasis in Normal and True Vault Hunter modes only. 

Special Effects

Strength through adversity. – Health regeneration is added, and taking shield damage increases health regeneration rate. It also significantly increases maximum health and has extremely high elemental resistance. Health regeneration increases with damage taken to the shield.

Usage & Description

The Evolution has a low capacity, although it's higher than its cousin, the Neogenator. Its true strength lies in its tremendous elemental damage resistance, maximum health bonus, and powerful regeneration that is further improved by taking shield damage. It tends to have a very short recharge delay, allowing a wearer under heavy fire to more frequently take shield damage to increase health regeneration.

Notes

  • In Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode, the Evolution cannot be found for sale by the Seraph Vendor.
  • The shield's effects make it especially useful to Gunzerkers, as their fighting style often results in them getting hit so much that their shields can't regenerate.
