What’s the next step after Moze SoR/Deathless build? Where do I squeeze more DPS and build improvements in Mayhem 4?
A bit of background:
This is my 2nd post. I started playing BL back in Nov 2019. I rushed BL2 until I can hit TVHM. Then I switched to BL3. I managed to complete Normal campaign a day before Moxxi’s DLC came out. Also I play on XBox. I try to avoid trading as I have seen some hacked items out there with too perfect godly rolls (ahem Youtube influencers).
I have 93% Galaxy completion in Normal mode. I play the remaining side quests in M4 only. I am now in the process of finishing Pandora in TVHM. It’s a letdown coz it’s too easy. I wish I can enable Mayhem mode for the challenge and drops.
So far I can solo Normal Mayhem 4 with my Moze. With ease. The only boss that takes me time to kill is Graveward in M4. How much time? Probably up to the point where I use all of my 11 grenades, 3 mags of ION Cannon, and 2 mags of Lucian’s (more or less. Sometimes I do it faster). M4 Chupacubra, Traunt, Gigamind, Killavolt, Katagawa Ball, and Billy the Anointed are easy bosses to me. I don’t one shot them but I kill them fast enough. I try not to abuse the ION cannon unless I’m out of options.
Btw I’ve managed to reach the 3rd stage solo in Mayhem 4 in the Blacksite Maliwan. But I’ve never completed it in Mayhem 4.
I’ve tried numerous builds ie. Bear focused build when I was starting, then switch to bottomless ammos, then the one where I sticked the most is SoR/Deathless/Bloodletter combo with an Augmented Big Boom Booster (did I get that name right)? My shield is about 32K. My loadout is Torgue handgun (Scoville), Binary Cutsman (corrosive and shock), Recursion (incendiary and corrosive), and all the flavors of ION Cannon. In my bag I mix up with a bunch of Laser Sploders. Lucians, Faisors, Brainstormer, Kaos, and more Torgue handguns. I also have all the elemental versions of Recurring Hex. I run Transformer as my backup shield.
Last night I respec’d.
Formerly I got all the SoR tree minus the capstone and most of the DW tree but none of the BM tree. My new build is the same for the SoR except I ignored the DW tree and used the remaining skill points on BM tree.
My shield and grenade replenishments are coming from the Augmented Big Boom Booster. This is the reason I respec’d. I realized I can generate enough healing and grenade with the BBB. So the blue tree for me is kinda less useful. I feel my grenades do less damage though but I cant quantify it. However I feel my gun damage has improved and it takes a while before I reload my Lucian. At the end of the day the respec from before and after feels like I can go either way.
Sorry for the long post. I guess my question here where do I go next to improve my Moze build? I’d been farming diligently in hoping to find slightly better stats and anointed gear. I was the one who farmed Raging Bear for 13 hours btw.
