Since there isn’t a Pendles page just yet i’m just gonna put this under the Rogues page.
What gear do you plan on using with him for both PvE/PvP?
From what everybody has seen with his helix what do you plan on going with once we all get to enjoy sneking around and silently eviscerating our enemies!?
I’m personally going to be going with atk dmg/skill dmg/atk speed for PvE and for PvP i’m going with atk speed/movement speed/shard regen & buildable cost, I really feel like his early game is gonna be kind of slow so I want to make up for that with getting him lvl’ed up asap.
If the helix tree w/mutations on http://battleborn.wikia.com/wiki/Pendles are accurate I see a LOT of potential with Pendles.
For PvE (including mutations):
lvl 1. Poison Cloud (DoT dmg base 80 over 2 seconds so the extra 3 seconds should bump it up to 200 dmg over 5 seconds)
lvl 2. Ninjineering (my only question with this is in order to go invisible do you have to be in the AoE of the smoke bomb or does invis auto activate?)
lvl 3. Torn between Backstab and Flurry of Blows (I guess depending on your loadout you could go either direction, BS if you already stack atk speed or you can go with atk dmg if you go with Flurry of Blows)
lvl 4. Savage Cut (Stacking that with Poison Cloud)
lvl 5. Escape Plan (I want to see how this actually works in game, does it reduce per hit? reduce by total dmg taken?)
lvl 6. Sweet Spot (250 base dmg from injection including the 90 over 3 seconds from Savage Cut)
lvl 7. Deeper Pockets (I really feel like this helix and the mutation are geared more towards PvP, curious how much of a height increase you get from Coiled Spring?)
lvl 8. Torn between Acidic Blast and From the Shadows (I want to see if Acidic Blast increases just the initial dmg for smoke bomb or if it also increases the DoT dmg, From the Shadows if it stacks with Sweet Spot would make for a 40% dmg increase to injection when atking from behind)
lvl 9. Relentless Strikes (does it reduce per swing? per combo animation?)
lvl 10. Venom Synergy (stacked with Sweet Spot and From the Shadows a boss could be taking up to 60% increased dmg from injection not including the dmg from smoke bomb and Savage Cut)
lvl 1. Cobra Strike (gotta catch those little jennerit babies that are trying to run away, interested in seeing how much ground he covers with Cobra Strike)
lvl 2. Flash Bomb (Good against enemies that don’t have a AoE ability)
lvl 3. Mamba’s Bite (This along with Life Leech and Escape Plan is going to be a nasty combo)
lvl 4. Life Leech (Just from what i’ve read here the speculation is he’s gonna be squishy so the health regen is going to be a must)
lvl 5. Escape Plan (I feel like having smoke bomb at the ready and Cobra Strike is going to be a must for getting away from a 1v1 if they have the upper hand or if you are getting tag teamed)
lvl 6. it’s a tie for me between Feint and Sweet Spot (Depends on personal playstyle and how brave you are I guess)
lvl 7. Poison Blood (Combining this with lvl 3/4/5 talents makes him feel like a semi squishy tank)
lvl 8. From the Shadows (That little bit of extra dmg chasing somebody that’s about to die is gonna be crucial)
lvl 9. Relentless Strikes (Although Slippery would definitely get you out of a pinch the skill rotation i’m picturing in my head you should have either one of your skills ready if you needed to escape)
lvl 10. Necrosis (W/ healers on the opposing team)/ Venom Synergy (No healers on opposing team)
Let me know what you guys think!
