I currently have a 53 Axton going through UHVM, a 40 Krieg still doing first play through, and a 50 Siren cooling her heals.
Now while I have played Zero/Gaige/Salvador a little, I don’t know that much about them. I am in the main a Commando/Siren player.
However, i fancied something different, plus I am hopefully going to get some online games in soon, so I was wondering about the following.
Which class can get the most out of NOT using thier class skill. A glass Cannon is going to die to easily, and a pure tank wouldn’t have the DPS, so I was looking at a class that has a ton of useful DPS and Survival skills, that don’t require thier class skill active.
I have typically used Axton without the turret, pulling it out at the “oh S**t” moments, but its always there ready to pull my butt out of the fire, and is always ON when I play UHVM, and I use Maya’s Phaselock like its going out of fashion, and of course, Krieg is just awesome fun with RtB.
So I fancied playing something where, if possible, I could 90%+ go through without actually using the class skill, just the boosts from skills and COM’s and relics etc
I thought it might also be a good “What class would you do, and what build would you do” excercise.
So, any thoughts on who has the most DPS mixed with Survivability, WITHOUT using their class skill?
My first thoughts go to Axton with healing from max Shields, his ability to quickly rebuild shields, and some useful Weapon Damage skills usually overlooked by me from the Guerilla tree due to getting the most out of the turret (Double Up/Scorched Earth/Gemini eat a lot of points)
But I have 3 Axtons, so I was wondering who else could be a contender? And what skills would you go for?
This is of the top of my head Axton build, would probably need tweaking, lot of the Guerilla Skills I haven’t used, as I usually max out Turret Skills
