To preface, I am NOT a Moze main. If I have an incorrect impression of things PLEASE inform/correct me (without being a ass about it if possible, lol) Thank you in advance for your understanding.
The tree lacks love in the Class Mod department. The only mod that grants skill bonuses to it is the Bloodletter and, to my knowledge, that mod only really synergies with the Deathless Artifact otherwise you can never get any health back because it just goes to shields (my thinking is that you try to keep at least 60% of your health to manage the Healthgate. Otto Idol might work if you can get 5 in Thin Red Line).
The problem with that is the whole Healthgate in M10 thing. Last I checked, you can’t gate with your shield which makes these items totally worthless. This also means that SoR becomes kinda useless, but you could totally make a build where you have 60% health and therefore can use the Healgate mechanic to work into M10…but you have no Class Mods that benefit that sort of playstyle. You either go whole hog or go home.
Sure, you could use a different mod. Some are really awesome. However, most benefit Splash damage which means you NEED to be at a good range otherwise you’ll just kill yourself… and self Splash damage currently ignores the Healthgate if I am not mistaken. I imagine they’ll attempt to change that soon enough, but I’m just trying to wrap my head around how Moze works and SoR is the only tree that currently speaks to me.
IDK. I’m curious as to what Moze-mains feel about all this kinda stuff. Obviously y’all have found ways to cope or just really enjoy how all this works. Supposedly she is crazy strong so clearly something is working in your favor. Anyhow, thank you for reading my weird little rant/question/thing. This has been my TED talk.
