I have three toons, FL4K was me first, 57- Mayhem 2 dude. Then Amara who I got to 43, and now Zane is 57 - Mayhem 2. Got to the end of the Mailwan Takedown on M1, couldn’t get very far on M2.
I am not a runner, slider, jumper type of Zane … I’m more of Big Lebowski and Jason Bourne have a baby type of player. I do move around a fair amount, find my spot, do some damage, then juke around a lot. I like finishing things off with Maggie as a closer when need be, so satisfying.
I enjoy the gameplay of the barrier/clone style, only the clone is at captsone (? - all the way to the top), but the barrier is close. Any game ever, Im always obsessed with finding the the best utility solo hybrid.
I have a decent Seeing Dead or Red- I’m seeing something, a Dastardly Maggie, an Lab, an Insider which wrecks outside of the takedown, and my two Soulrenders that also face melt peeps in regular M2 but not the takedown. I also have an Anarchy that I’m beginning to get to a degree, it’s strong situationally like the Valks.
Ok, so my confusion. I have a God shield on, all fire- a fire grenade mod, and my fire soulrender. In non-raid gameplay, it melts through armor, shields, health AND I think it even took out a building. Ok, maybe not that last one. My relic is Victory Rush … sponsored by Starbucks. But when I get in the raid, that exact same combo does nada. It does help with the turret gunners when you first arrive, but then, meh.
I end up using the lab up close, a cryo one - Maggie as a finisher, and the Insider for mobbing, my cool and frosty Soulrender for the Valks.
I just don’t get how to create gear synergy for my playstyle and spec? Im not a min maxer. I just like having fun and being pushed, which BL3 has definitely done.
My builds are more, well, that would be cool- with testing - with, that was cool! For example, I’m maxed out on the first shot could be a grenade and with a few points in the crits = freeze, and kills = freeze. I find Winter Soldier builds, pure ones, boring, but I like a little freeze now and then, with a whole lot of- I just melted your face with fire. Fire & Ice I guess.
Thoughts? Insights? Drink recommendations?
Also, as an aside, when are we going to get the Zane Combat Kilt skin?!? Just saying … “ah, boyo, liking the look of me legs, are ya?”
Many thanks for your time,
