Finally made it to OP8 solo with Maya! My OP7-OP8 run I died in the very first part to a stupid slagged Spiderant but my next run I cleared it with only 1 close call in the part right before the OMGWTF fight with the Ultimate Badass Sruveyors and Loader (my fault though I didn't do it properly though as I was getting a bit nervous).
Feels really good to finally get to OP8 solo for the first time. Maya is amazing at the peak at being able to control the chaos with Quasar+Converge combo. What feels even better is I farmed all my gear throughout the run and didn't get gifted anything. The only thing I did was add a 2P for certain story mode gear (Sandhawk, Ladyfist etc) and luckily on my only Sandhawk run at OP6 I was gifted a Corrosive Sandhawk which made life so much easier. A tubby in the dust also gifted me a OP7 legendary cat Mod with +123% SMG damage after only 20 minutes of farming tubbies for one (first tubby I found!).
I'm really excited to try more solo Digi runs with the other characters but not having Phaselock scares me lol.
But yea I was pretty much able to clear it with
OP6 Corrosive Sandhawk
OP5 Skorry Fire Lyuda
OP6 Lady Fist (nothing special)
Longbow Quasar (TERRIBLE 2.2 fuse time though)
OP6 Chain Lightning
Up until my OP6-OP7 run I pretty much only used the Hornet/Blockhead combo since they are easy to farm. I really didn't have any trouble at all until I got to Dukinos mom and realized I needed something with a little more DPS. Although I did beat her once with a regular lady fist but I died to the constructor right after where Saturn spawns... and I didn't want to have to grind that Mom fight again. I didn't even need the Grog until my Op6->OP7 run.
As someone who has put about 700 hours in the game I hadn't played the Siren until this playthrough and I have to say she is AWESOME! Easily my 2nd favorite character behind Zer0.
