First off, thanks to all the contributors in this section. I’m currently further in the game solo than I’ve ever been before and the challenge is fun but very manageable, even with some less than ideal pieces, and it’s because I’m standing in the shoulders of giants.
But on to the topic at hand…
And sorry about the wall of text and inconsistent formatting, I’m on mobile
I’m currently sitting at 57, and just starting the Bandit Slaughter for a new Hail. Story-wise, I’ve gotten through Control Core Angel
My current setup is as follows, and apologies for lack of specificity, just shut down my console for the night so going off memory
Sapping Kitten lvl 50 needs replacing badly, thus the Bandit run)
Binary thunderball fists lvl 54 not ideal prefix but gets the job done nicely
Purple Texas Bushwhack (I think) lvl 56 w 4 shot mag, but I can ride the trigger well enough to basically treat it like a single shot
Slag Rubi lvl 50 not well parted but I can only handle so much dashboard farming
Green shock nova shield ~lvl 55 honestly I don’t know how I’m making a mockery of rabid stalkers with this thing on, suffice my approaches aren’t as head on against Badasses as they could be wearing something with a bit more umph but the game hasn’t been kind in that regard, so it goes
Shock BoA 25% dm boost, 30% cool down my weakest bone by a margin that I got in my 4 hour midget farm over the past couple of days, when I finally got the damn thing I put it in and left
I was soooo tired of that run
Leg mechro com good acquisition from my bone farming, hoping a leg cat might come my way though
Longbow stormfront lvl 55 0 fuse my best equipment atm, also from the farm run. Utterly redonkulous, love love love this thing
Lvl 50 corrosive conf call probably not gonna be using this much anymore, but it’s still serviceable when stacked up
Bad touch lvl 56 just acquired from moxi as a just in case
Lvl 58 flakker can’t remember the prefix, waiting to use it when I level up
Fire and corrosive BoA for situational use
Lvl 55 longbow Quasar ~2.2 fuse situational, figure it might be nice to slap on if I get a nasty pack of something fast in the open
And that’s about it as far as what’s gonna be useful for me right now I think.
My plan was to finish the bandit slaughter, maybe go farm the snowman if I can’t get a shield that’s worth anything, perhaps pick up a lyuda, sandhawk, and pimp somewhere in there (since I’m running lower stacks I had been sniping on occasion, particularly against constructors and loader mobs)
Skillpoint wise, I’m thinking I’ll focus in on getting TBH maxed, dropping a point in upshot, then a couple in preshrunk but if i come across the leg cat respeccing to capitalize IO.
I’ve never run any of the seraph bosses, was thinking Pete might be a good start to try to get an o neg and build up to buy an antagonist at 72?
Anyway, thanks to those who have made it this far. Gaige is a lot of fun, and well worth learning her quirks.
Any advice on skill tweaks, gear to prioritize (and means to get it, I’m not above doing research but it helps if I get a nudge in the right direction), when to consider a reset, and what to expect going forward with regard to the style I’m leaning toward would be appreciated. I’ll build you all extra arms for high fives!
