Okay, so here’s an idea I just came up with, about a character for Borderlands 3.
Anybody remember the Dahl Lost Legion chumps from The Pre-Sequel? Okay, so remember the Ascendant guys who start off as soldiers but when they’re about half dead they do this big ascending ritual and transform into one of a bunch of different god-like forms, making them a pain in the ass to kill? What about one of these guys as a playable character for Borderlands 3?
So his action skill would be like Claptrap’s in that he activates it and it channels for a little while, before randomly picking one of 5 or 6 different ascended forms (Magus, Tempest, Phasewalker, etc.) and taking on that form for the duration of the skill, with the powers pertaining to that form i.e. Tempest he floats around and chucks balls of electricity, also shocking anyone who comes near him. His skill trees would be based around elemental damage and possibly heals for the teammates (or something else), and speccing into certain skills unlocks different forms that he changes into, like Claptrap’s Action Packages.
