Mayhem mode is flawed at it’s core:
- Action skills don’t scale at all.
- Makes many builds useless
- No “must have” rewards
It was meant to be a new game ++ but it’s more of a slow grind that refreshes itself every couple of months. Gearbox could release Mayhem 11 tomorrow and all anyone would do is piss and moan about it, regrind all their gear, and then come to find that none of the core problems were fixed and any there were fixed are now broken again due to the new modifiers.
So, I’m done with Mayhem mode. There’s no reason to play it. I’m going to regrind my TVHM gear on my melee Amara build and play happily like I wanted to. Now I can play:
- Melee Amara
- Pet FL4K
- Iron Bear Moze
- Drone & Clone Zane
All completely viable before the whole Mayhem thing made action skills and extras so obsolete.
Does anyone else feel the same way? Would I be missing anything important if I choose to not play Mayhem mode? And by important, I mean something that does something other than “more damage”. Like an exclusive funny weapon or a wacky Easter Egg. Because honestly, I don’t see any fun in Mayhem mode. Feels more like a job than a game, and I’m done with it.
