Sooo, if it is called Phaselock, then other two Characters are called Axton and Zero, and other two Action Skills are called Scorpio 2.0 and Deception? There was "confidential" leak with those info on this forum.

My guess that we can actually see Axton's Scorpio 2.0 in new trailer, and Deception is some form of stealthy power for Zero.

Anyway, is Axton ex-Hyperion Soldier (my guess is that he lost his job because of Hyperion's over-mechanization) and is Zero male, female or robot? Pretty please?

If you freeze frame and look at the video, she has a skill called "Sweet Release", the details of which discuss enemies that are 'phaselocked'. Sounds like mmo control to me. It states that it heals allies if she kills somebody who is phaselocked, so maybe they are untouchable to others? Rooted?

Judging from name (Phase lock) I think that enemies are just temporary removed from play and take damage while effect lasts.
In some ways way better than rooting.
Also temporary mind controlling or converting enemies sound like a great Gamechanger to me.

Oh, yeah, if they were taking DoT while phaselocked they could be killed that way. Interesting! Phaselock them when they are close to death to heal the party....

i'm thinking it will be more along the lines of instant damage, followed by a persistent effect called phaselock than a dot.

dots dont really seem to fit borderlands speed that well

Or Phaselocked (and other Phase effects) enemies can be only hurted by Slag?
Slag is of Eridian origin and all of the Sirens supposedly gained their powers from alien (Eridian?) artifacts/technology.
I want Phasewalking Guardians and more Phase and Alien effects in general.

My guess is that Phaselock stops enemies moving and attacking or at least slows them down considerably. That would keep things simple, "control" enemies, and also keep in touch with Lilith (i.e. a defensive ability).
