So, today I was playing a ghoul bulwark and invested into the galvanic retributor (yes that all sounds like a terrible combo) and I found something interesting... the retributor doesn't go into the tinker slot like other tinkers, but applies directly to the shield and then says 'failed to apply tinker'.

This can be done an infinite number of times, and persists when the shield is taken and put back into the inventory.

HOWEVER, this only happened with one specific shield-- when I tried it with other shields the item worked just fine. Swapping back to the bugged shield would forcibly de-equip the galvinator (and apply it to the bugged shield again). So it's probably something to do with the shields egos (cosmic?).

Here's the shield in question... notice the stacking lightning damage on hit.

The problem the tinker has is that the shield has a on-block effect. Some stuff in the code gets messed up there because the game checks to make sure it doesn't override the previous on-block and... well, it applies the stats, then sees "oh shit, I can't attach because the shield already has on-block" and thus just goes back into your inventory.

So yeah, it's a bug that's specific to shields with on-block effects.
