Name: Extreme Healthgating Axton
Level of build: (OP8)
Specific gear needed: Sure, and you’ll even need a specific spec
Difficulty Level: Invincibility
I do not claim to have invented this build. However, I made the healthgates/sec go from 50 times (originally) to 1383 times per second.
Edit by PH: Trash removed.
How does it work?
To reach this point, Axton has to possess the right combination of shield parts, COM parts, in addition of COM level, and skills. In fact, having a skill increasing max health while the max health is negative will lower the Commando’s health, the formula being:
Max Health= (80x1,13^(level)+Shield effect)*(1+max health bonuses in %)+COM Health
First, from level 72 to op8, the base health is 530564.
Then an OP8 white turtle shield with two Bandit parts and a Maliwan capacitor has a penalty of -614967 max HP.
So Axton is at -84403 HP, but with a lvl 72 pointman COM with an a5b1 configuration (it’s kind of parts on COMs, the a controls the health regen and the b controls the max hp on this one), he can have a bonus of 111419.
Although this might seem too much health, with a 32% health bonus, we can finally lower the amount to 6 HP along with a health regeneration rate of 4148,7 per second.
Do not forget to spec into healthy, forbearance and/or ranger to reach 32% max health bonus.
*Note: This might also work with a Legendary Pointman COM, but the DPS would be lower, because able, grit and healthy do not need a +5 buff and you would not get pressure at 11/5.
