I’ve just started playing as Melka again and I’ve noticed that her health seems to have been lowered quite a bit. I don’t know exactly when this happened (I don’t always keep up with the Battleplans) but I’m sure it has. I understand she needed nerfing, her damage output was way too high in relation to her survivability but now whenever I get into a fight I find I have to almost instantly turn and run or I’ll get killed. Even against the minions in meltdown her health drops dangerously low that a flick from a Battleborn kills her!
She doesn’t have that survivability the other Eldrid characters have. The Eldrid are my favourite faction, mainly because of their health regen and survivability, but Melka doesn’t have the latter. Sure she can regenerate health, if you’re lucky enough to get away from the enemy, but that has rarely happened to me because her health seems so low. I’ve never died as quickly as any other Eldrid than I have as Melka.
I noticed today, when playing splitscreen with my brother, that at the beginning of Incursion, Melka has around 992 HP which sounds like a decent amount. But then I looked at my brother’s half of the screen, he was playing as Orendi and had roughly 800 HP AND A SHIELD! I always thought Orendi was a character with less health than others because of her high attack but now I’m not sure. Has Orendi got good HP or is Melka’s too low for someone without a shield?
Is it just me or is Melka’s health too low? She used to be one of my favourites but now I rarely play as her in PvP cause I get ripped to shreds! Has anyone else found this to be the case? And if so, please Gearbox, save Melka! I don’t think she enjoys being ripped to pieces when it’s her glaive that should be doing it to others!
