Hello there, this is my first topic on this site. I bought this game before Winter Steam Sale ended, and so did my friends.
Anyway, even though I’m a newbie I researched a lot before picking a character to play and what builds are optimal(min/max). I’ve found Bloodlust/Mania and Hellborn/Mania.
From what I’ve read HB/M is quite bad early on, especially if I try to go coop, as I will kill myself quickly. But with BL/M this isn’t the case. Then the problem arises, Experience and Levels I need to gain before I can actually get RTB to spam Buzz Axe Rampage.
As for coop, I play with 2 people I know IRL. They main Gaige and Maya. I do know how Maya is played but not Gaige.
And talking about optimal builds, I don’t want to pressure those 2 people I know into speccing into a specific build, because I don’t want to ruin their fun.
I will talk about how they play. First, they seem to use slag, idk if it’s Gaige, but I constantly see enemies dipped in Purple paint. Second, DT usually recharges my Shield(which fucks me up because I need to rely on having my shield down to trigger FoTFH Novas and going into Rampage). As for Maya, I usually see my friend spamming Phaselock, which is good.
Their common weapon of choice is a Sniper.
As for my experiences with them, it’s been fun. The only time where we all ended up dying repeatedly is against Wilhelm. We’re all prepared(variety of elemental guns) but we got our asses handed to us.
Let me talk about my Weapons. I usually am not picky about gun types. As long as I have a Corrosive and Fire Gun, I am set. The Grenades I use are Corrosive DoTs Lobbed-type IIRC. Class Mods, I have a Health Regen, Scream Sickle. If I were lucky I’d have a Slab right now, but alas, that is not the case. Relics, I don’t have any besides the one you start with(+5% Drop Rate). Shields, I use FoTFH.
Right now my Krieg is spec’d into this: Level 17 Build
I need advice if I should respec into Bloodlust and leave Mania untouched, because I feel like I’m not getting the most out of this, especially during Co-op Play. Or should I persevere with this until I get to Lv31?
As for fun, I enjoy what’s optimal for the given moment.
Thanks in advance!
