Amara isn’t overpowered. She just has the best gear.
Not calling for a nerf to Amara but It has become clear that she is the best character in the game. She has the best trees, she has the most playstyles, she has the best gear, she has the best anointed, she has the best artifacts, she has a build for every situation. Has has the most diverse class mods
I will explain in detail why i feel the way I do and why the game needs to greatly expand on their gear diversity to bring the other vault hunters up to speed.
Amara Has The Best Trees
Amara is probably the only character in the game I can see that has multiple viable endgame builds with ANY COMBINATION of her trees. Hell, she could Max out one tree alone and be completely fine. Her augments are all great (relatively speaking compared to other vault hunters) and add different things to her abilities. I’ll use Zane as a counter example, Zane has multiple digiclone augments that try to accomplish the same thing instead of increasing diversity.
Amara Has The Best Anointed
All characters anointed gear should be similar to amara. She basically turns into a super human just for using her action skill. And she has different kinds depending on her playstyle. You want weapon damage? Here is 300%. You want melee damage? Here is 300%. Zane’s closest anointed gear to this kind of damage is the digi clone swap which of course requires digi-clone. The rest is meh AT BEST.
The Majority of Artifacts in the Game are Melee Focused.
Tell my why I, a Zane player would want to slide into an enemy? Why would I want to use ground slam? Why do I want to be anywhere near mobs? Yet the majority of artifacts in this game give melee benefits and their is only one character who can melee reliably. Amara.
Amara has the Best Gameplay impacting Class Mods
Amara has the best class mods and it’s not close. Her only issue is that one of them is kinda over performing. also bugged. But she has class mods that provide obvious game play advancements. The nimbus cloud. The Melee action skill activation one. Phasezerker. The Tank one. All viable, all useful. Zane on the other hand…
The games meta lifts Amara up past the other vault hunters(you guys also keep nerfing the others). It seems like the devs made alot of gear with Amara in mind, and haphazardly made gear centered around the other vault hunters. Moze has only one mod that isn’t Demolition Woman based. Flak keeps getting nerfed. Zane’s mods are under-cooked and don’t provide in gameplay enhancements outside of a few of them. The anointed is the same way. Moze’s anointed are centered around getting out of her mech and such. terrible. I think alot of class mods and anointed perks need a buff.
The obvious blind bias the developers have towards Amara has to stop
