What have you guys found works best for Orendi? And what role should she play on a team? The obvious choices are Cooldown reduction and Skill Damage, but what about shield strength or shield penetration? Sprint speed, maximum health? Do i spare one of these pieces with a shard collector? Or could anticipating shard crystals and my greater movement speed allow me to apply something with more damage output?
Orendi is my favorite character because she is very supportive in her abilities to nuke groups of minions, while also a strong DPS to enemy battleborns. But this leaves me struggling to select gear because i could go both ways.
My play style is pretty in between both roles. I usually rush in and take out the minions asap and if i do that quick enough ill go to the other side and try to take out those minions. Then ill focus on enemies until the crystals spawn, with those ill activate my shard generator so that i can buy turrets for extra damage and/or a distraction for the enemy team. Ill then repeat this and focus my damage on 1st the minions, 2nd the enemies, 3rd the turrets. I usually rush in and try to distract and annoy the enemy team nuking them with my skills making them want to attack me because im squishy and then i nullify and run letting my team take the focus as i loop back with my second batch of skills.
Should i play supportive and equip my shard generator that gives +2 shards per/s with +1.5 bonus shards per second for 5 seconds after damaging minions allowing me to stack shards and buy multiple turrets, heal stations, and accelerators. Or does focusing shards work the same? I have to get them anyways to avoid the other team from getting turrets, so am i wasting a slot? What goes good with shard generators? Should i put on sprint speed which would also help escaping danger?
Should I play more offensive and stack shield strength and skill damage? Does shield penetration help this role? Or should i focus on getting max cooldown skills? One of the most annoying things about playing Orendi is how low her health is and if you get stunned then you will most likely die unless you have your nullify up. Would i be smart to stack -CC duration gear? Does this gear even make a justifiable difference, or is it like 1/20th of a second off your stun?
Its a lot of questions I know and Im sorry but since the game came out I havent seen any threads on Orendi and would really like to know how everyone else has been playing her and what they have found gear-wise that works best. I realize that a lot of this has to do with your team setup but regardless share your thoughts and experiences please. Also any good legendary gear youve found.
