Instead of nerfing things, please buff and fix things instead. We have broken skills in the skill trees. And some character classes and builds really have trouble.
Zane kill skill build for example should be amazing but it’s really squishy (and even at my max DPS I feel like my damage doesn’t compare to other classes). Zane barrier capstone builds are generally very good at surviving but sacrifices too much DPS.
In regards to the linked thread, just no. Amara is fun as she is. Decently balanced I think.
Weapons are one thing to buff, but we hardly have builds which support them - moze has one build which works, zane hardly has one, amara has loads (gee thanks balancing guy!) and Fl4k… well he has like 1.5 builds which are viable.
Dischord, youtube and twitch are all going to just show the OP builds.
Also you named like 5 guns, with anecdotal evidence of “these are way better now” - still don’t see them in any major player builds though.
As usual there are 200+ legendaries, with like 15-20 as useful. If they want us to use snipers other than the lyuda, make them much, much better.
Got an annointed Gatling Gatiling Gun on Fl4k last night finally, and that thing tears @$$. Dud not matter the negative modifiers in MM3, it still murdered anything and everything. Had a Rakk attack annoitment that deals 100 percent gun damage after use and good God, that thing was a beauty. Been looking for one for awhile and gotta say, really underrated Lego.
Westergun, got a Mocking one with incendiary and radiation on my Amara 2 days ago and I find myself using that over the crossroads, cutsman and sometimes even the night hawkin. Very good ammo consumption, hard hitting and accurate. Maybe a little better bullet speed but pleasantly surprised by its performance.
I have always used a Fire Faisor since my first level 50 toon got it from a loot tink within the first 2 weeks of release. No annoitment sadly but probably my most used AR because of the awesome synergy with close range threats, switch to shotgun mode, long range targets switch back to AR. I prefer its dps potential over a Lucians Call. However, that Gatling Gatling may win me over here soon.
I’ve never actually tried the ASMD in combat. Have you? I’ve gotten so many but, like the Will o Wisp shotgun and the Lob, seeing that slow moving ball always discouraged me from actually trying it in combat. I would like to know if maybe I’m using it wrong or haven’t seen its potential and therefore, been ignoring it.
And the Electric Banjo. I’ve gotten 2 and have no earthly idea what the hell it does. Any info on that artifact?
