Finished up Data Mining, And I’ll leave it there tonight.
The entirety of today was messing around with Buck Up, and wow. This skill (other than its obvious bugs) is far more vital to Gaige’s survival than I expected it to be. Far too many times when I’m in the heat of the action I feel the need to be bailed out by BU, and in some cases it barely kept me out of FFYL. The only time I’ve seen Buck Up do something funky was when it recharged the shield of a Badass Marauder but the skill has otherwise worked as expected.
Gaige may not be Zer0-style fragile but clearly she needs her shields to be up to be effective. Glad that when I re-specced I put some points into Fancy Mathematics.
Equally as glad that that Badaboom dropped when it did because it made short work of Saturn (with pre-stacking Anarchy of course ), and the Lady Fist puts a few hard bullets in the eye of that BA Constructor on the bridge. As far as shotties go I have had zero luck tracking down either a Thinking or Projectile Diversification via chests or mob drops so I’ve had to buy a white variant of the former, with a less-than-desirable Bandit grip.
No COM boosts (because while I do have a Prodigy Mod, I don’t have it boosting the one skill that actually has points in it – The Better Half).
