Both methods work…it’s just that they are still so random that it makes it impractical in a fight.
I ran 25 runs on the Dragons and only got the effect to proc decently during the fight with the first dragon one time…
You simply run out of time while the Dragon is landed switching weps or going in and out of inventory.
That one time I was able to get 6 reliable drunk volleys with a fire Norfleet
A volley is three rounds…times three for the Drunk effect…so 9 orbs each shot
So in essence I hit Boost with 18 Rounds and 54 Orbs…
and still only got him down to less than half! And I used a Slag turret to keep him slagged the whole time.
And died soon after that because you are fiddling around with trying to get the drunk effect instead of being anything close to defensive with movement.
I saw a vid of Bahroo doing this with Axton and all he was doing is swichting weps but I SWEAR he was getting the effect all the time after about three quick switches.
Sigh…and the Dragons are resistant to Grenade Damge so Chucking seems out of the question…
I just don’t think Axton has the Burst DPS to get the fight done reliably at OP8.
Sure…It can be done…and I did it…ONCE…after 127 straight tries over two weeks.;
Not exactly reliable odds…
I do know that Flakker/Ahab WILL get the job done…so if you want tof farm for Omens or Stingers or Blockades…don’t mess around, just go Flakker/Ahab swap.
But I was looking for a “decent” way to win.
Of course invoking the “Drunk Effect” I kinda feel is even lamer then Flakker/Ahab…LOL
But beggars can’t be choosers.
