Hey there Gearbox forums, just wanted to make another redundant post about Zane buffs. Of course another post soon will be coming that further goes in depth about specific suggestions, but just wanted to get the frequency of this type of post higher.
-Changing bad skills/augments into good/useable ones
-Letting us actually use our barrier augments
-If you don’t want sntnl to do big damage, at least add real utility to it - changing augments, currently the only actual utility it has imo is that it can’t die like clone, for ccc builds - and the sntnl cryo anointment.
-Changing Class mods
-Adding damage buffs to useless tier 5 skills, looking at violent violence, nerves of steel, and like a ghost
-Letting us further stack kill skills, this is like extremely conditional upon getting a kill, they could be stacked much further
-Giving all kill skills passive bonuses - like cool hand - this way we’re not useless in FFYL
IMO many if not all things listed need addressed and honestly if all of these things were changed, updated, buffed, whatever - Zane would not become overpowered. He would become more balanced.
I know I seem like the last person to talk about Zane “being weak” because of my Youtube channel, and all the crazy things I showcase him doing. But that stuff isn’t without access to any gear I want via my own discord trading rooms, and extreme knowledge of the game mechanics from doing this every single day since release.
Real Zane players are struggling and suffering because they make a small mistake in pairing things, or they don’t have top tier gear. I can tell people to play on lower Mayhem modes forever, but the fact is they want to keep up with their friends.
I will say the Scaling to Violent Momentum was about exactly what we wanted, but the damage is once again conditional on if you want to take on that playstyle, and even if you fully commit to max speed = max damage, you still are not doing the same damage another vault hunter can do without having to aim while sliding.
I’ll be going into further detail on what exactly I think could be changed and updated based on reading other people’s suggestions and playing this game every single day since release. But like I said I’ll be saving that for another topic, so that this can be more frequently brought up. I’ll probably make a video on it too, and try to tell people to post about it more until it is addressed.
I hope if a Gbox employee reads this, they realize this post was made out of respect and love for this game :)!
