Happy Birthday XYMistman,
I agree with your post. It seems gearbox doesn’t understand the problem with Boldur in my opinion. It’s not his ability to tank incoming damage, that’s his job. The problem with Boldur is his ability to deal very high attack damage as a tank in my opinion, best of both worlds.
If still build right Boldur can deal 1.2k to 1.4k damage in 1 sec, which is insane as a tank that gets overshield while having a hard cc every 8-12 secs.
The nerf to Boldur today did make his primary attack combo better to use now than just using his off hand melee to kill BB. Also Boldur is no longer the fastest character in game now due to this nerf as well, but that’s besides the point, he’s still in the top 3 fastest characters in game currently.
Boldur needs a nerf to overall damage, not his surviabilty, but Gearbox doesn’t understand that in my opinion. Not many people rely on his rage to tank incoming damage as Boldur, they use it to deal very high amounts of damage and escape within a short frame of time.
He’s still the best tank in game by far, whether that means you need to buff the other BB characters or nerf him even more, that hasn’t change in game at all in my opinion.
