Amara Master List: Build Collection

Following the path of Mirrorada and Gulfwulf from BL2

I already made a collection thread for Moze, but figured I’ll do it for the others that were lacking one as well to have a place to compile builds. Until dedicated build posts are more frequent, this post by Jordangold527 has a lot of builds in comments that are worth checking out. :slight_smile:

If you’d like to have your build added, please list the following when sharing your build:

Type: ( DPS, Survival/Support, Melee, etc.)
Name and Link:
Level of Build: 50 (can be updated later)
Specific Gear Needed: Yes or No

All builds are properties of the original creator.

Builds are broken down by their primary function; however, this does not mean that a build under the “Pure Damage” tag is ONLY a DPS build. The tags are set up to 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.

Since it is early in the game’s lifespan, I am aware that most builds might simply be theory crafting, but those are welcome anyway and can be edited to update said builds later on.

Get Your Build Added!

You MUST have a thread or Google Document dedicated to your build.

  1. A link to YOUR dedicated thread or write up on your build.
  2. Your Build’s Name. If you haven’t come up with a name yet, it’s O.K. This is optional.
  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?
  • 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.

I will check up on this regularly and update it from a PC when I’m home. Until then, hope everyone is enjoying the game and hope we get some awesome builds here as time goes on. :slight_smile:

Here are some more builds. Just one recommendation. It would probably make more sense to primarily categorize builds into melee, gun, hybrid, etc. instead of trees. A build doesn’t necessarily have to have a focus in a specific tree but often use a variety of all available trees. The aformenentioned roles on the other hand are universal and probably are what most people are considering first when looking for a build. The builds themselves then can mention the skill trees in use.

Arsonist’s ABC’s (Always Be Casting) Build: Gun / Action Skill Caster / DPS, no gear requirement

Melee Amara - Normal+TVHM Mayhem 3 gameplay vid: Melee / DPS, gear requirement

(BUILD)Mystical Overkill Amara(09-18): DPS, gear requirement

The Shocking Vampire - A tanky hybrid Build: DPS tank hybrid, gear requirement

Amara multi-purpose build thoughts - 9/23: CC DPS hybrid, no gear requirement

Amara Build - Phasezerker - Phaseslam - TVHM M3: DPS, gear requirement

I completely agree with this.

Thanks for all this! Been out of town for a few days, let me get those added. I can certainly change the categories as well if that’s what people prefer. Look here in a bit and let me know if that’s preferable.

If anybody has any suggestions or QOL changes like that too that many would like to see, I don’t mind hearing it!

Edit: Alright, I re-did the categories. Damage, support, hybrid, boss/misc… modeled after typical roles in party games.

White Elephant Unforgiven Melee Amara

Melee, lvl 50, phaseslam anointed gear required.

EDIT: with the addition of the white elephant relic + unforgiven this build DESTROYS anything while providing constant healing. I’m confident this is the toptier amara meele build since it destroys bosses instantly and provides the healing necessary for any circle of slaughter. Can do 6 MILLION DAMAGE + in 1 hit. It can even skip a boss’ immune phase, instantly killing them.

Updated ABC’s with some general observations if anyone’s curious.
