I haven’t played much with her new skill tree but I feel Amara’s damage is often lacking in comparison with the other vault hunters, (including Zane with his new buffs and skill tree reworkings). Amara is great for mobbing but falls off significantly for tankier enemies or bosses. On top of that, Amara has many bugged skills and virtually useless skills that need to be reworked or fixed.
Here are some possible changes that could make Amara a better character overall:
Violent Tapestry - This skill seems next to pointless on Amara and could be buffed by adding a small increase to elemental damage. This would incentivize players to pick up this skill or at least put more than 1 point into it. They could also change it by giving it an increase to status effect damage, which could make coupling this with wildfire and high status effect damage weapons a viable playstyle.
Fist of the elements
Wildfire - This skill could use another effect such as those listed in violent tapestry. Either increase status effect damage or elemental damage.
Catharsis - Either increase the explosion damage or give it splash damage/elemental damage to make it more worthwhile to pick up.
Conflux - Same thing as the above listed skills.
Forceful Expression - This skill should be doubled at the least. 18% just isn’t enough when we consider that the tier 1 skill Personal Space gives 36% or that FIre in the skags den gives a whole lot more with mayhem scaling. It does not act or feel like a capstone skill.
Samsara - This skill looks good but often doesn’t proc, which makes it feel useless in many situations. It should be fixed and should have the damage increased on it as well as change the health regen to x percent of health instead of x percent of missing health. This could allow Amara to be more diverse in builds.
Vigor - This skill looks flimsy when compared to Mindfulness which is in the same tier as it. It’s drastically outclassed and should either be increased significantly or perhaps have a flat increase to action skill damage accompany it. This could help make action skill damage builds more viable.
These are just a few changes I would like to see made for Amara in order to make her feel more like a badass siren than she already is. Let me know your thoughts down below!
