I feel like The Baroness has the chance to have the highest single shot damage of all the toons from all three games, with this setup:
Here are the skills and gear that matter for the scenario I’m thinking of. Hoping to get a discussion going about what gear would be best, and will update accordingly.
5/5 Markswoman = +30% Critical Hit Damage
5/5 Culling The Herd = +30% Critical Hit Damage
Long Range Killer = +60% Weapon Damage
5/5 I Never Miss, with 999 stacks = +3496.5% Critical Hit Damage
5/5 Large Caliber = +50% Gun Damage
5/5 Prudent Prudence = +30% Weapon Damage
Custom Loads = +30% Bonus Elemental Damage
2/5 Cold Advance = +12% Critical Hit Damage
Contractual Obligations = +15% Gun Damage
5/5 Quality Not Quantity = +25% Rare Gun Damage
All Glory to the Master, with 250 stacks = +100% Critical Damage
5/5 Next to Cleanliness = +20% Gun Damage
Highest Damage Sniper Rifle Possible.
Best Amp Shield.
Best Class Mod for the above.
So here’s what has to happen:
Enter into a contract and start building Glory stacks and I Never Miss stacks. Quickest way would be to combine these two together, so basically let your servant kill an enemy (one stack of Valet) then let your servant be damaged by another enemy, and then you crit kill the second enemy (converts Valet stack into Glory stack). 250 kills like this for the full 250 Glory stacks, plus an additional 250 run-of-the-mill critical kills for the full 999 stacks of I Never Miss.
Now that the easy part is over ;-P, you’ll need to get melee’d (Prudent Prudence) and hit a crit (Culling the Herd). I hope there’s an amp shield that will recharge faster than Prudent Prudence and Culling the Heard decays (Short Summer could help if not, but then you’ll have to add that stack-building into play.) Let your shield recharge as your servant freezes an enemy that’s far enough away for you to get the full 60% Weapon Damage from Long Range Killer. Zoom in, spin explosive damage (bonus explosive damage for a frozen enemy, although I’m not sure that explosive is an option in Custom Loads, as I haven’t made it to that skill yet).
Then hit a crit.
I mean that has to be the most, right?
Sound good? Can people help me to figure this out? Why? You know why. Thx!
