Default Mechromancer Master List: Build Collection

Because Borderlands has changed so much since the first production of this list I'm going to start it completely over.
All current builds on the list will be placed in an archival bin. If you have a build you wish to have added to the OP please list the following when submitting your build:

Manufacturer: (name of manu.)
OR
Type: ( Gaige DPS, DT DPS, Survival/Support, Misc/Boss)
Name and link:
Level of build: (please list if it is OP 8 compatible)
Specific Gear needed: Yes or No
Difficulty level: Low, Med, High

It looks like this in code for those of you who'd like to fill it out with the tags
HTML Code:
[b]Manufacturer:[/b] (name of manu.)
OR
[b]Type:[/b] ( Gaige DPS, DT DPS, Survival/Support, Misc/Boss)
[b]Name and link:[/b] 
[b]Level of build:[/b] (please list if it is OP 8 compatible)
[b]Specific Gear needed:[/b] Yes or No
[b]Difficulty level:[/b] Low, Med, High

Builds are broken down by their primary function. However, this does not mean that a build under the "Gaige DPS" tag is going to make DT completely useless. The tags are set up so that we can organize builds based on what their biggest strength is. This *should* make it easier for people to find a build archetype that they want to play with.

---------------------------------
Get your Build added!
---------------------------------
You MUST have a thread or Google document dedicated to your build.
This isn't optional. I will no longer be responding to people who can't seem to grasp this simple concept.
If you're too lazy to read this OP in its entirety to figure out how to get your build added and post a skill calculator link. Don't expect a response.
PMing me wont get you any where either, any PM sent asking why your skill calculator link hasn't been added will be ignored.
If you've made it this far, you're awesome! But please, bear with me a little longer and follow these simple steps on suggesting a build for the list:

*Step 1: A link to YOUR dedicated thread or write up on your build.
This can be a thread here on the forums, a Deviant Art write up, or a Google document write up.
If there is a physical page on the internet some where with a write up of your build, you're good.
(Please see the very last section in this post on tips and tricks for a build write up)

*Step 2: Your Builds Name.
If you haven't come up with a name yet, it's O.K. This is optional.

*Step 3: What type of build is this?
Is it pure DPS?
Is it a boss farming build or one for a specific boss fight?
Take a look at the different categories and pick which one best describes your build.
What level is it for 50? 61? for leveling?

*Step 4: If you've made it to this step,CONGRATULATIONS!
No really, Thank you for reading this far.

------------------------
Tips and Tricks for an AWESOME build write up
------------------------
Here are a few key things to have on your dedicated page, thread or document for your build.
* Have either a screen shot or a link to a skill calculator with the build set up
* Describe what the build is intended for
* If your build requires or is dependent on a certain gear set up, list needed gear items, and if you can how to acquire said items.
* Be descriptive. The more information you provide about your build, the better. Describe why you've chosen the skills you have, why the gear or weapons you have listed are a 'Must Have',
Even videos of the build in action. Anything helps people make a better informed decision on your build and if it's something they might like to try.

Default Re: Gaige Master Build List. Should I?

Its not a big deal, but some builds such as full Anarchy is terrible, the melee to heal isn't that useful unless your over leveled.

What would you call this build? http://tinyurl.com/8reuxy5
