Yess… baseless guesses.
This is what I need while I chew my gums waiting for this to go live.
Amara - Having access to Phasegrasp I think is going to put her near or at the best mobber in the game, in the same route as maya. CC goes a long way in borderlands games, and she has access to great damaging abilities in all three trees that might use this. I’m worried that first tier PG may outshine some of the other abilities just because its so damn spammable, but that alone is going to put her up there, and if we’re lucky, her elemental “overkill” skill may touch some of the same places Krieg’s Bloodsplosion did. I’m not making any hard predictions on single target raid damage yet, but she’s got the flat “gun damage” buffs to put her in the running.
Zane - Honestly, I don’t know if there’s a competition for best support. Zane just seems like he wins that category. Everything he can do is beneficial to the team in some way. I don’t think he’ll be a slouch, DPS wise, but compared to some of the other classes he looks a bit more reserved. Still, he’s easily the one I want on the team if I’m not playing him already.
Fl4k - Maybe the only character I can see that gimes Amara a run for her money as a mobber, and probably “easier” to solo with. Flat damage buffs give them a solid chance in the Raids category, but a lot of that may depend on how long their pet can live under a lot of raid conditions.
Moze - Decent team support, but not as good as Zane in my opinion. It could just be my perception of her trees but nothing “stands out” to me in a big way, and so much of her ability is going to be tied into the mch. She could be first or last in a lot of these categories to me, but deserves at least a nod to support play for the weirder stuff on Iron Bear.
