I consider Mellka my main in PVP, and the majority of my playtime is with her… it’s the most fun I can have with my clothes on. Yet I rarely bring her into PVE, where I find her a little underwhelming (sorry, pissed-off-Eldrid. I still love you.) Her superb mobility, venom harassment and scouting/skirmishing potential just doesn’t gel with the massive nuclear assault that is the average story mission. She’s decent, sure, but Claw Lunge in PVE is just kinda “there.”
Conversely, I’ve taken to using Phoebe exclusively for story queuing. With a full DPS loadout and a healthy sense of adventure, she’s insanely fun and effective: nothing satisfies like a rapier thrust into those squinty little Thrall faces! She can dance around bosses and major enemies, quicky wipe packs with her skills and her AE mutation, and her Blade Rush becomes pretty effective. Yet in PVP, I find playing her to be a cautious, methodical, nerve wracking job - forget gleefully wading through inferior opponents, the task becomes instead to creep up on a wounded squishy, flail at them wildly, and maybe get away with a few health left. Very, very different style of play.
Meanwhile, I love Ambra in either mode. Her wave clearing abilities are the same, and let’s face it, both Thralls and Battleborn alike really do need to wash their filthy hands.
How about you guys?
