Before you get your undies in knots, let me preface this with the fact Zane is my favorite VH, and my first choice.
I am of the group who believe Zane is too weak for Mayhem 3. Yet, I see many argue that he is totally viable.
Most builds I see with Zane are so incredibly gear specific. Other builds I see people “reset” till they have the perfect Mayhem modifier. (Which if you are doing that, you are not playing the game right, and are just terrible at adapting.)
Some are starting to claim he is viable, and not so gear specific. I want you to explain?
Because, Flak is my secondary. Flak, without really using the action skill, still holds fine, and slaughters on Mayhem 3 no matter what gun is used. With action skill, Flak melts god.
Zane, who uses two skills at once, has tons of buff skills and kill skills, doesn’t hold a dang candle to Flak in any way in my experience. I have messed around with a few builds, and on Mayhem 3 he just can not compete.
I am talking solo of course, as giving some BS about Zane in a group just means that the group carries his lack of damage.
I am looking for answers. Real answers. Every thread is full of haters, with a few guys going, “HE IS AMAZING SHUT UP” but without explaining dittly on how.
I want your builds and gear list. Because I want to see if it is as “gear dependent” as it seems. (Which as a Diablo fan, I am ok with, but does make it harder.) I also want to know weakness. Because if you can take on normal enemies, cool. But if your build sucks vs annointed or mutiple badasses, then it isn’t really all that viable, is it?
Tl;dr - Explain 1) how you think he is viable. 2) build used. 3) gear used. 4) weakness in build.
