Hello ladies and gentleman!
I currently have a level 50 mechro and I’ve been playing around with quite a few different builds. (I’m aware the cap isn’t 50 however I’m about to start UVHM and want the best build possible so I’m not breaking too many controllers!)
I initially started with a build that relied far too much on DT and I also found it pretty boring sniping whilst he was out having all the fun!
So I’ve now been playing around with the anarchy build and have to say it’s so much more fun and I think generally a lot better. Playing solo I’ve levelled up so much quicker as I can get through enemies at a much faster rate. Also I’ve noticed my down time due to death etc is a lot less.
Now my question(s) to all you fine folks are what skills should I be taking. I’m aware of a few that are essential but I keep looking at other variations of an anarchy build and can’t decide which is best.
Currently my skill tree looks like this…
However there are a few skills I’m not too sure about which I’ve listed below with my reason…
Cooking Up Trouble - Is this really worth it? Considering you’re only really going to have a full clip when you’re not actually doing anything, i.e. in Sanctuary… surely when you’re out in combat you’re constantly emptying your clip to build stacks / kill.
Potent As A Pony - I’m 50/50 on this skill at the minute. I can see how the extra health for you and DT are good but if I’ve got Blood Soaked Shield then surely this will make the extra health a little overkill considering I’m relying on having my shield up most the time due to kills etc.
Typecast Iconocast - Don’t get me wrong, extra stacks are always good but do I need to max it to 5/5… or do I need it at all? If I’m using a weapon with a short mag and fast reload then I’m going to be building stacks quick anyway?
I’m aware I need either Cooking up Trouble or Potent As A Pony to have Explosive clap but which would you say is better to have?
I’m considering this trying this build as the Electrical Storm skills sound useful as well as the increased chances of applying slag etc.
Sorry for rambling on but hopefully some of you will read through this and have some good tips / ideas for me!
