I feel the direction we are heading in terms of end game content is much better than in borderlands 2, and far better than pre-sequel. So I am excited to see where it goes from here!
I understand why Gearbox will increase it, and why people enjoy it. However, I have to admit that I am not a fan of level cap increases in Borderlands games.
My main beefs:
It deters me from playing now.
I feel its a waste of my time farming those god rolls (even on classmods/relics) when the items will most likely be made redundant.
Other than leveling each character, and clearing each boss once on M3, I won’t want to keep playing until all the levels are out.
Even recently in BL2 they did it to us. All those hours gone, with nothing to show for it.
I enjoy specific character builds.
BL1 and Pre-sequel had it worst. By the end of all the level increases, the skill tree looked pretty similar across all builds. I enjoy the specific aspects of a character’s capabilities, and the abundance of skill points makes for a flavourless character you’ve created.
Eg, I like having to choose between a sniper build or a pet build on Fl4k. To spec in both and having skill points left over is boring.
Terror items and their builds will disappear.
Temporary areas and missions are awesome. Temporary items are not. Once the level cap goes up, the terror items and builds will effective be deleted from the game. No one likes having content removed.
I stfu and gtfo.
Include repeatable missions and the reward is to select an item to level up to the player’s current level. I imagine something similar to the current bloody harvest event mission. After a long(er) and hard(er) objective, you get to continue using an item you worked so hard for previously.
This would also fix the terror item issue.
Add a 4th skill tree. This would mean the player can decide between maxing 2 trees or dabble in 4 different trees.
I guess an alternative would be to extend the current 3 skill trees.
have an option to cap a playthrough at a certain level. I for one would really enjoy having a lvl 50 Amara i can play. Farming booses for level 50 items, play through ALL content, and not worrying about an accidental level up.
Once i have had my fun, exit game and boot up my level 61 Amara. Or my level 72…
Im imagining a toggle option with a warning “you have selected to increase level cap to 61 on this playthrough. Once you confirm, you will not be able to go back.”
This would fix the build and item issues i have. Plus add much more content for people like me. (if there are any)
This post ended up being longer than I thought…
