I’m hoping we can all share ideas for builds we may have. I’ve shared a build or two in other places so I’ll show off another one to kick things off. I’ve got a build in the picture below that revolves around survivability and the Shield of Retribution + Demolition Woman skill trees. I call her “Mech Maiden Survivalist”… I couldn’t think of another “M” word. Depending on the situation, the Iron Bear will be using the Bear Fist with Shockhammer to rampage in melee (made easier by the massive amount of shield power). If the situation calls for some distance then it’s the good old V-35 and Lock and Speedload for a flurry of explosions that even Mr. Torgue would be proud of. I’m also considering the Vanquisher and the Active Tracking. She also has a reliance on grenades when the situation gets dire and she needs some health after her shields die out. Transfusion in a crowded room? Instant full health bar.
Admittedly, these numbers feel a tad high IMO. They feel like they make her somewhat overpowered, but perhaps that’s just my perception. I haven’t played the game yet afterall.
They sure as heck ain’t mine, but if you’re lookin’ for the fan-made interactive skill trees, you can find them here:
UPDATE: 19 Aug '19
Been playing with builds and since the official ISTs are out I’mma update these with my new favored builds.
Moze has proven a tad difficult for me since I adore her Shield of Retribution tree so much (and has been further confused because of unknown health gating mechanics and uncertainty with specific skill synergies). However, I’m looking keen on keeping a focus on shield strength and regen through the SoR tree. Whenever shields go down and there is an emergency, I’ll pop out “Good 'ol Iron Bear™” to regen shields with Full Can of Whoop-Ass.
Drowning in Brass and Phalanx Doctrine are the main method of damage and Auto Bear will help get Moze back in the fight after her shields come back or when she needs to build up some steam with aforementioned damage focused skills. While I like the Grenade Launcher with burst fire, I am tempted to get in close with Shockhammer and pummel enemies in melee with “Good 'ol Iron Bear™”. I’ve dipped into the Demo Woman tree for improvements to “Good 'ol Iron Bear™” and using transfusion grenades for health regen in dire circumstances. The build has a small amount of co-op capability, but it isn’t focused on it in any way.
