Ok, so credit for this idea goes to my good PS4 Battleborn buddy GeneralDansLegs (who Im sure many of you all know).
We were in a mic party while playing Battleborn last night and Dan asked me to “use my sway with the community” to get this idea out there.
So here goes:
Now, I have lost count of the amount of times, especially recently, where myself and / or my teammates have shouted “GODDAMIT ORENDI IS ANNOYING!” either before, during, or after a match (if not all 3!) as we watch a power leveled triple legendary running Orendi reach level 10 while we are still at 5-7 and carry her team with 20-35 kills and few deaths.
Just constant PillsrStorm Genocide.
So, Dan’s idea was this:
Bump her R2 and L2 Attack strength back up Normal.
Reduce her Shadowfire Pillar damage by 35-50 percent, essentially in half.
Give her “Hellfire Stacks” (crazy Borderlands legendary Fire damage SMG reference) which Orendi woukd acquire upon every successful R2 / L2 hit (well maybe just R2 to prevent peopje abusing L2 Mind Bullets for stacks).
At 5 stacks (maybe 10?) her Pillars would deal their post Nerf damage again.
I guess this still leaves the issue of mass PillarStorm kills, but that’s a fairly late game issue.
So…what do you guys think?
Tagging some people for knowledge.
