With BL3 ahead of us, there has been a lot of discussion about what people want in it. That has caused me to wonder what people are actually doing in game, and which things keep each of us coming back. This thread relates directly to that. Please, share with us what it is you’re doing as you play. It’s fun to hear how differently people enjoy these games, whether they’re repeating the vanilla game in Normal with many characters, running wild in endgame content, building a collection of gear in the bank, or pursuing a different sort of goal.
I very much enjoy the story of the series, but I also love the arenas, boss killing, and being able to fast travel to a zone for some fun mobbing. Despite temporarily keeping myself from being able to fight the end bosses, I went ahead and reset my 70 Jack this week. During a Google look at COMs after that, I noticed the Projection mod. I had never seen it before, and the sight of a COM giving Absolute Advantage and Best Foot Forward bonuses was too much to ignore. So, I dove into the Holodome. I made it through the first 4 rounds a couple of days ago, then through the BA round last night. That got me the specific version of the COM that I wanted. I celebrated by going to Pandora in the Claptrap DLC for some fun mobbing. I really like the density and mixes of the fight right by the zone in. I play a very methodical, work-the-perimeter style in BL2 (Maya and Axton are my favorites), but Jack with +6 AA and +5 BFF simply begs for high octane Jakobs play and stacking.
After a bit of that, I hopped over to my level 20 Aurelia. I’ve been building into cryo stuff, so far. I tend to run her very similarly to how I run Maya. In this game, it seems a bit trickier to work the fringe in solo play. There are so many areas where enemies spawn all around or nearly on top of you! Still, Aurelia has been interesting. I’m sure the situation changes later on, but her cryo tree is ridiculously powerful in Normal. There are times where I pop my AS, shoot a couple of times, and everything around me is dead.
I’ve played each class except Claptrap through around level 20. Not sure who I’ll wind up taking to 70 next. Jack is such a perfect fit for me, it’s weird going away from him.
