Its pretty tough farming a boss/monster over and over hoping to get the best version of a gun and I DO NOT MIND… its always been that way in Borderlands But then it will basically come with a class and build restriction known as anoints.
In the endgame anoints make a gun viable theres no ands ifs or butts about it at this point. Shure some weird niche builds with god rolllled stats can make everything sorta great. Good for them.
Imagine finding ur perfect version of a gun but the anoints for another class and specific build? That hurts.
Based of numbers and complicated math i dont care about the chances of you finding a dedicated gun with the anoint u want and the element are less than anywhere acceptable. Now tackle onto the Original gun game of parts which make guns unique which i love. And well…
Basically anoints make a weapon or shield class, tree and build restricted. It kills the fun for me personally.
I feel pathetic saying so but i have killed singular bosses over 500 times multiple times and found nothing usuable or that i want… And its because of the anoint system… I dont think this is fun anymore or value or a good spending of my time i should be able to see a weapon drop be happy and feel its still good and not absolute garbage.
I can not speak for everyone… But everyone i know has left. Even my wife who played the whole journey with me. It may be impossible for ppl to find what they need want or something usuable after 100s of kills ona singular target. Thats not ok. I actualy fall into the weird minmax nutcase crowd personally and will farm for days using the fastest methods possible. My play style is not healthy or keeps ppl in a endgame.
Please talk about this specifically. Let us know you recognize the issue.
You’re gonna have to do “something” about anoints…
Whether its letting ppl somehow reroll the anoint or find another way for them to be applied
Nerfing all anoints into Small benefits so they dont feel ultra necessary where just a good gun and its parts shine.
Vastly increasing dedicated drop rates or guaranteeing a drop
Trimming off many anoints letting a weapon have multiple like a class specific and sliding damage. Or homogenization. Instead of just phase slam. Itll be phaselam/fadeaway/ironbear/barrier all in one. Whatever youre doing there are many anoints that need to be cut out are redundant and just add bloat. Some anoints can not work with a gun or shield and are completely useless
My borderlands itch isnt getting scratched because of this system. More like it’s just giving me some kinda nasty rash.
