I got a shield which noticed "increased roid damage" as a stat. What exactly is "roid damage"? I assume it's melee attacks (steroids) but for all I know it's specific to some other classes' ability.

Roid damage increases melee damage, though apparently only when the shield is depleted. Not class specific, though.
