After I saw the fourth big Borderlands YouTuber tell his audience “uhh ohh the new terror +75% Cryo anointment is worse than Zane’s 100% Bonus Cryo. They shoulda made it stronger” I had to address this.
NO! The +75% Bonus Cryo is not worse than Zane’s +100% Bonus Cryo! In fact it’s much stronger!
The +75% can roll on shields and grenades. If that anointment is on a shield / grenade it affects the Damage of all 4 equipped Weapons + Grenade Damage and Action Skill damage.
The +100% Bonus Cryo while Sentinel is active, however, can only roll on weapons thus only affects the weapon with the anointment and nothing else.
Imagine you have a Zane build with Clone and Drone. Maybe you have a powerful Ghast Call grenade equipped. With the +75% Bonus Cryo while terrified BOTH of your Action Skills get +75% damage, your Ghast Call gets +75% more damage, all equipped Weapons gets +75% more damage. It’s also multiplicative damage.
