I recently have picked up BL3 again, heared of a couple Buffs here and there, DLC etc.,
so i decided to play with a good Friend of mine, who was playing Barrier+SNTL Zane.
It didn’t take long until i noticed how my friend is doing all the damage,
not dropping his Barrier once, and i cant help but feel my build is weak,
which was a 1-HP SoR Build back then.
So i ended up trying a couple Iron-Bear focused builds.
My Goal was to be able to Pilot Iron Bear for as long as possible, killing as much as possible along the Way, before having to jump out and wait/fight for Iron Bear to come back up.
So i was focusing on reducing the Fuel Drain as much as possible, which ended up in me using Bear Trooper, since Raging Bear only Buffs your Damage and Fuel Drain for a Short time after the Trigger (or at least thats what it seemed to do).
I did end up with a Build that was capable of farming smaller Bosses / Rare Enemies for Equipment, but against the Big Boys its lacklusting.
Iron Bear Build.
The Points in Grizzled, Stainless Steel Bear and Explosive Punctuation are added by my current Class Mod. Along that i use a Multivitamin Shield with the 30% Cooldown Rate Annointment, and a Piss Grenade Mod with the 20% Chance to spawn when taking damage while in Iron Bear.
Bear Equipment is currently Vanquisher Rocket Pods without Augment, they deal the most consistend Damage with a small Splash Radius, keeping Iron Bear healthy along the way.
So, how can i improve this build? As for my Weapons, i havent picked anything in particular yet, but i have a feeling that the Ogre is pretty usefull in combination with the Cooldown Rate Increase from Explosive Punctuation.
