I haven’t read the whole topic but i am wondering if someone ever mentioned the meat grinder. As i have been using it since week 2.
With storm weaving, it’s basically an anarchy from bl1 and the ammo consuption is made irrelevent. With a shock or fire element, it’s a stack machine.
What prevents me from getting higher than 250/300 most of the time is that the ennemies simply dies to fast. If they don’t, a stormfront to their feet keeps the stacks from decreasing while reloading/switching guns. With badasses, i get to 450/500 before killing them.
I usually run with 2 kwikner shock meat grinder, a shock decisive bullpup and a cryo meat grinder for flash freezing.
And that was with a shielded class mod, as i also use an amp shield with 11/5 conduit.
Why ? 'cause it’s basically a bee. As long as you have dots, you are invincible. High stack will get conduit to recharge your amp shield 5 to 6 times per seconds.
I have recently got my hand on a cellestial class mod with +27 RoF and i never knew it worked so well with this build.
Aspis regen is up the roof, it also get5.5 more seconds of use, conduit is boosted and gun kata get’s to +30% more gun damage. No point in clarity of purpose for health gating reasons and hte last skill raise the reload speed to +50% which takes the meat grinder reload speed to regular smg reload speed. And the only time you will reload is between fight as a 190~ mag size with free ammo consuption will never get deplated.
I have foregone flash freeze for more dps against heavy hp ennemies and it works, the stormfront keeps the stacks from decaying.
The dlc lv9 arena is a pain and the sinergy between conduit, storm weaving and amp shields might get to even more broken levels with the rerouter amp shield, cellestial class mod and the meat grinder.
I’d like to test it to see if i can farm the lv9 arena solo with that setup but nobody seems to know where to farm the rerouter yet. As it is now, what i miss is a way to instantly regen my health against the most brutal badassess from the lv9 arena. I got a few time to the end of vague 1 or 2 and stared at the last badasses for a few seconds with no aspis out while tanking damage and having my shield always up thanks to conduit but the lack of healt regen to get past the healt gate is what get me dying in solo. I do hope the rerouter might help with that.
