Had an interesting session. As I mentioned in a previous post I’ve started playing a bit with a Hybrid build that is mostly melee with Zer0.
I built a character at OP8, but it was suggested by those much wiser than myself in the ways of melee Zer0 that OP0 is really where you want to be when you first start learning. I’'ve not been led astray ever by the good people here, so I decided to heed their advice. Farmed a 72 Rapier and also found that a good number of my mules had collected a pretty good deal of gear well suited for melee(grenades, sheilds etc).
I was just about to start some melee practice when I was contacted @Sun_Tsunami and he asked if I wanted to join in his OP8 session with a group of other players. Of course I did. Melee practice could wait.
So we did mostly raids, and several that I’d never done. First tried to spawn Vermi in the Caustic caverns. He never did spawn but it was good time nonetheless. We also did Terry, Voracidous, Pete, The Dragons and finally an OP8 Peak run. Voracidous and the Dragons are both ones I’ve never done, so it was an intense experience. To be honest I stood in the back and sniped for the majority of the raids. Not sure I really had the best gear for the tasks at hand. But it was a great fun anyway. It was also the first time that I played with an Axton. Wow…the fire and explosions…
I think I was probably the most useful during the Peak run, as I’ve had plenty recent experience with those and I really like mobbing more than raiding.
After all that excitement I did spend a little time with my new Melee/Gun 72 hybrid build. At 72 the melee is much more manageable. While I am carrying a couple guns, I’m trying to melee as much as possible. Right now just working through the main story and made it about halfway through the Firehawk mission before I had to call it.
I will say that feel I’m starting to get a feel for it…kinda…gonna take some work, but I don’t think it’ll take too long before I’m somewhat comfortable with it. It’s not feeling nearly as foreign as my first couple sessions did.
