Note that the skill descriptions of Numbed Nerves and Taste of Blood understate their damage reduction in terms of the standard damage reduction mechanic by half. The loot midgets in the Preserve will yield you a lot of Bloods. ExportData WillowTwoPlayerSaveGame saveGame at Gibbed. I recently paid attention to Stockpile relics. Just friend me and let me know. Level does not matter nor does effects I dont have much but would not mind if anyone would have one to trade me out of pure generosity.
More shield makes Krieg take much less damage from the burning. And if you do happen to want something in return I can show you what I do have. So far so good except that issue of the eridium counter that you are already aware of. I spent some quality time yesterday with Krieg in Marcus' firing range, igniting Krieg and studying the resulting self-damage, and I discovered some mechanics previously unknown to me. Rough Rider, Numbed Nerves, and Taste of Blood while rampaging all serve to this end. Also, the difference that a relic makes to Krieg is minimal.
I use both Bloods and straightforward stockpile relics. You will perceive this as Krieg taking about 1% of his health per second as shield damage until the shield falls, whereupon he will suffer 5. I went from 2 million bucks to 26 in about 4 days from selling loot and from ~100 eridium to 350. It's dangerous to go alone, jerkwad! Guess I'll just have to keep at it. Skin of the ancients can be really good for Axton, because they can boost Recharge Rate, Capacity, and two elemental resistances and non elemental resistance which he already has very substantial bonuses to. Skills and gear that increase Krieg's health over the base do not increase self-ignition damage: it is calculated strictly from base health at Krieg's level. Last tip, look for a Skin of the Ancients that does both shield recharge rate and shield recharge delay.
For example - for my build the most convenient would either be only shotgun ammo which to my knowledge rewards a higher bonus when you have a stockpile boosting only one ammo type or shotgun and grenade count, neither of which have I seen drop. Unlike flames applied from without, Krieg's own flames will not trigger Booster shields, including Whiskey Tango Foxtrot and Big Boom Blaster. ImportData WillowTwoPlayerSaveGame saveGame at Gibbed. To fix this, set you experience level to Level 61 and experience points to 5985083 manually. Ranks in Burn, Baby, Burn also reduce Krieg's self-destruction, an effect not mentioned anywhere in the skill description. I only use it for my low level 50 Maya when I don't have enough skill points yet to give her health regen skill.
I did not test to see whether slagged Krieg takes greater self-damage. I recommend to choose different effects for each parameter. Krieg's easiest path to more health is Feed the Meat, which grossly retards shield recovery. Note a tension between the two previous points. Is a grenade count blood even a thing? Just curious as to what others you have found.

You can discuss anything related to Borderlands 2 and the series in it's entirety. Both smg's, the avenger and emperor. It will not extinguish flames already burning, however. Ranks in Flame Flare will increase this duration by an additional second per rank, each second further gnawing at Krieg's health.
I've also picked up some really good E-Techs from crates. Any other runs, ammo and cash. ExportData WillowTwoPlayerSaveGame saveGame at Gibbed. They say that Terra relic is hard to get. This is too many So you hve more experience points then are actually available. More health makes Krieg better endure the burning. Howdy, I am looking for the Eridian relic Skin of the Anciets if anyone has an extra.
Be careful in fire-using builds without Burn, Baby, Burn. Once an enemy is suffering an elemental status effect, if Krieg has not ignited by applying that element, then he cannot ignite by layering another DoT of the same element on the same enemy. I did not test this with HellFire, which has some different DoT mechanism that supposedly interferes with Krieg's self-ignition at times. You will not be able to earn experience beyond level 61 until additional downloadable content that raises the level cap is installed. ImportData WillowTwoPlayerSaveGame saveGame at Gibbed.
