I’m a very big fan of tough mobbing content. Digistruct Peak is a huge pull to BL2 for me, and I only recently began diving into the arenas of TPS, finally having had time to get into the BA round of the Holodome just this week. When I did, I was very pleasantly surprised that I couldn’t just pop my AS one time and blow through a wave before having to deal with cooldown. These areas obviously favor building for endurance, and I am very curious to see what you all have come up with for your runs!
My only 70 (so far) is Jack. After round 4, I realized that I was going to want more defensive tools while my AS is on cooldown, so I went from a very offense-centric CEO of CEOs + shotgun build to a variant with points shifted from damage skills into defensive ones. I used the same COM, but switched my shield, grenade, 10 key skill points, and weapon set. I gave up some top end punch in favor of slightly reduced offense with more control and survivability.
Here is what I landed on:
CEO of CEOs (blue, +6 AA +5 Synergy)
homing cry singularity grenade
high capacity, purple rarity absorb shield
w1: blue Ravager
w3: maliwan cryo beam laser
w4: Well Kept Striker
For strategy, I wound approach small clusters (1-3 enemies) by popping my AS and quickly recalling my Jacks to get kill skills started, and to plan ahead for enemies joining or spawning. The idea was to stretch out my kill skills as long as possible, and to be able to bring up my AS again as fast as I could for survivability. I also used Sponsored By to throw cold element on either the Striker or Vibra-pulse to help control enemies, and often swapped through Striker to Ravager to finish frozen BA enemies, then through cryo laser to the V-P or Striker depending on the situation.
When I had to keep up my AS for longer durations, I would start to break away from groups when the duration was around 20%. To do so, I would hit jump pads to create space quickly, and try to get to the perimeter to break line of sight. Hero Pose, Resolute 3/5 and Persistence 2/5 were huge assets between cycles of my AS.
Thank you in advance for your participation. I am looking forward to seeing how you all approach this content!
