I’m kind of curious about how this would work. I’ve seen a few of these types of builds in the old forums, and there are even one or two here. I was having a conversation with someone on Youtube where we were discussing the design of borderlands characters. They felt that Jack was badly designed because he is overly dependent on leadership, which works due to questionable mechanics (this is paraphrasing, so I’m missing some of their vital points here) and that without that skill, Jack falls apart.
It got me thinking. Even though Leadership does activate all of Jack’s kill skills, which are potent bonuses on their own, he actually has very good skills that are not kill skills but still rely on the clones dying. Collaborate, Teamwork, and commitment (ugh) aren’t kill skills, and they are staples in most builds. So I threw this together to see what it would look like.
At least on paper it doesn’t seem too bad. Not having synergy and Believe sucks, but the crit bonus on the CD, long with the extra points in collaborate, just about makes up the difference. No winning also sucks. However, the combination of 9/5 teamwork, delegation, and persistence should go some ways towards improving survivability. AA is irreplaceable, and its loss is a huge knock on this. Still, it doesn’t seem like it would be totally pointless.
Anyone ever dabble with it? Any thoughts? I can’t really test this myself since my controller is busted, so if anyone wants to try it out tell me how it goes.
