New to game. Wanna Krieg

always start with mania, then mix it with bloodlust.

I would also recommend to start with the mania tree all the way down to RtB and then go bloodlust. Melee Krieg was always fun for me on the lower levels just like now on OP8 (Where i prefer gun Hellborn Krieg).
If you like explosive weapons you maybe wanna look for crunch mods and explosive fastball. It was a lot of fun for me leveling up my ps4 krieg with a explosive/melee way.

Is there anybody out there who started krieg with the hellborn tree? Would like to hear some expierence about that

I certainly wouldn’t recommend it. Gonna kill yourself a whole lot.

I’ve never run Hellborn sub-72. My current Krieg is at 34. I think I’m just going to have to respec to pure Hellborn. I have a purple Torch and maybe a Toast kicking around.

*New question: In Bloodlust tree, does Blood Bath trigger from Torgue Explosive weapons? …or only grenades?

P.s. Thanks for all the feedback so far. Great community.

Thanks for sharing this guide. Im a little rusty at some of the BL lingo tho…

Aside from particular unique weapons it appears to me that Torgue Rifles work as well as weapons with a Torgue barrel(?)

So can I assume anything that reads Torgue is gtg? Im not sure if Im reading that correctly?

Tbh, I played BL1 way back when and just recently cracked into Bl2 after getting caught up hard on Battleborn for the past 2 years.

The Flakker is the only exception I can think of.

Right @FleshCrunch, it’s totally doable. I went with this :

with the purple Razed Toast, the first green adaptive shield I found, Maliwan guns and a shock Rubi. I tried to go heavier on PiP and EE but I just wasn’t getting enough ignition. I’ll try a Torch too and see how that goes.

It is obviously way riskier than Mania or Bloodlust, but I think I’ll keep the build for the time being.

I don’t see this being even remotely viable in NVHM.

Risky is just the Krieg way isn’t it? :smile:
Suprised and happy that it is doable and the developers didn’t plan it as tree just for endgame.
How often do you have to use your Rubi?
A toast COM would help your survieve ability indeed. Maybe a low level rough rider? :smile:

Moxxi healing at that level is pretty weak, so I’m tempted to say it’s a waste of a slot.

Edit : I take that back. It’s actually ok.

I’m not prepared to start the DLC just for a Rough Rider, so I’ll keep looking for a better adaptive. At least until level 50.

Happy to hear that your moxxi is not necessary :smile:
Awesome. Yeah i usually don’t do the dlcs before uvhm either, just an idea to gain more robustness. But an adaptive shield will do the job in tvhm :grin:

So yeah, loving Krieg. Just trying to get him to level 52 by Thursday night when my daughter gets back. I want him to be my new main that I play with. Why does real life have to get in the way of gaming lol

Been going hard af to level

Hes just so much damned fun.

Absolutely. The trip to 72 felt quicker, and less like work, than with any of the others for me. He just ran around all willy-nilly bloodsploding everything in his path. He didn’t start to feel like work until the Peak. And he still kinda does, as evidenced by his being stalled at OP2 for the last ~mumble mumble~ (I need to get back to that) months.

Yeah loving it so far. I ended up leveling to 31 down Bloodlust.

I wanna spec into Mania soon but not sure how to slag enemies whiles Buzz’n…

He shoulda had a way to make his axe slag since via lore he was experimented on with slag himself.

Slag bouncing betty/biddy. Throw one or two out before you rampage.

What @Gulfwulf said. I like to start every mob with two or three in different directions and then another one or two if the purple paint fades before everything is dead. Generally, Bloodbath+Bloodsplosion chains litter the ground with nades so running out doesn’t happen often, if at all. If you respec to Release the Beast with no points for Bloodlust you can always pack a Tiny Tina nade for regen in the downtimes.

Slag Transfusions with any fuse time serve this purpose nicely. :slight_smile:
