Here i am lvl almost 50, having Violent Tapestry, Avatar, Anima and the one that increases elemental dmg.
As for whatever reason BL3 has no test dummy area?! If anything they should have added more, WAY MORE enemy types and whatnot to shoot at, rather hard to tell just how bad it is, but it is bad.
Anyways, there are several problems, one is previously discussed in another topic about how Avatar functions. The other problem is that i hoped for once that elemental chance was an additive bonus like crit multiplier seems to be.
Alas it seems to be a multiplier working on the base chance the weapon says, and even if it werent the case the amount of dots you can apply is a mere joke, im not even sure the duration increase works. Too hard invest into something where you might aswell just take anything but Maliwan even for Amara, dots are once again too weak for the game. BL3 messed up a nice oppertunity for dots or different utility in weaponry, i hope this will be changed so atleast one class can make heavy use of Maliwan.
I dont mind the actual hit of Maliwans are weak, i actualy embrace it, but when it isnt compensated through dots its a hard sale to pitch.
