In terms of duct tape mod: for those of us on console, this actually sucks–self inflicting damage so you die and respawn made farming killavolt for the monarch simpler. Having to now save and quit adds so much more time.
In the obviously limited amount of time to test the other changes, I don’t like them. My clone does not do as much damage and does not stay activated as long (I base this on how long it took me to defeat Wotan–two to three times longer) and I still have zero incentive to use any other class mod. The “problem” with Zane was not that Seein’ Dead was too OP, but that the other mods just aren’t any good. E.g. the Antifreeze buffs sliding and airborne damage, which very few people use and those anointments are no longer in the game. The others really don’t add anything useful either. Rather than nerfing Seein’ Dead they really needed to rework and buff the other mods. I don’t understand why they didn’t make significant changes to those mods instead.
