i think you only get them in like lost caves/acid caves. maybe rare drops from the spiderants/scythids? i didnt do any playthrough 2 yet, cept knoxx, so i didnt rego through the story. i bet if i did, i would find updated versions.
also that shield was just a random drop, but i might even flip it with a different one i have. i got one that 1200/223 with 30% health boost. even with diva/girl power (+shield % and +% shield regen per enemy kill) i kinda would rather run with more hp because i tend to put points into healing light and my phase time/activation. so even tho higher shield is good, id rather have 30% more life, cuz that increases my base % of healing with phase plus im gonna phase all over and that doesnt help my shield any. idk zone. i like games that make you think like you are thinking, even if its just silly stuff. lol
oh n yeah, of course i changed from plaguebearer to firefly once i realized lockdown palace was all 'psychos'. i never made that jump single player, brodaz and i fell to our deaths, while kingkoopa was the only one to make it inside, lol.
and damn, all that shit on the streets, those flyers and racers that were pissing me off earlier, now im level 55 and i take them out quick. bambam. i only got 1 point in phoenix now, but iv got mass points in phase punch +800% phase melee and mind control, so like enemies are always dazed
helps with a speed freak like myself.
