This is an elemental gun build using **Ties That Bind **, and a Golden Rule class mod with +3 Laid Bare. This is designed to be a solo capable build, flexible between boss killing and mobbing, and to be weapon flexible.
The basic idea here is to present a catch 22: enemies susceptible to Grasp become controlled. Enemies immune to Grasp trigger Samsara and Laid Bare. Along the way, linked enemies each suffer 25% increased damage from all sources.
Why this approach? In BL3, there are many dangerous enemy types which are immune to grasp. Examples include most bosses, certain anointed enemies, Kraken or mech types in the Maliwan Takedown, etc. With this build, those enemies take direct damage from Ties, activating Laid Bare, Samsara, and ASE damage anointments.
The skill distribution:
The only critical piece is a Golden Rule class mod with +3 Laid Bare. Ideal rolls are likely weapon damage, damage resistance, and another +damage roll.
Shield and grenade anointments for +50% damage on action skill end are ideal. I’m currently using a Brawler Ward with ASE corrosive, and a Storm Front with ASE radiation. For a relic, most choices work. I enjoy a bullet vamp with AS cooldown as one of the rolls.
This is pretty much par for the course for Amara, except that I generally target grasp-immune enemies with Ties, since they’re typically very dangerous. This applies and activates everything as previously mentioned, which simultaneously boosts my damage and defense.
Also… I forgot how to format. It has been awhile.
