Can someone give me a general mechro build for soloing? I plan to get into bl2 as I beat the first difficulty, but I feel like an outsider to my friends who all beat the hardest difficulty & hit 72. I really enjoyed mechro back when I played it a few months ago.
I've heard its pretty much just 6 points in the correct spots, then points anywhere else. Seems a little generic
What kind of weapons should I be aiming for? Whats the general strategy besides shooting. Etc
Mechromancer is probably my favorite character in BL2, partially because its so forgiving and easy to solo and partially because its so ridiculous. You're right about the 6 points though, basically get Anarchy and Richochet Shots. From there its up to you.
Personally I chose to go down the Best Friends Forever tree long enough to get DT's Explosive Clap and the talent that extends DT's summoned time whenever you kill something, then went down Anarchy up until Death from Above. Some people like using Discord, and I take it so I can regen in a crazy fight, but I avoid DfA because it eats too much Anarchy and doesn't give me much bang for the buck. You typically pick guns with fast reloads and small clips to build up Anarchy quickly. When you get 400 stacks I get infinitely amused by Gaige's comments and how you can't hit an enemy point blank with a shotgun.
I looked up a bunch of builds and there are some good ones using the middle tree I saw demo'd on YouTube, but for me I just enjoyed the silly approach of Anarchy stacking + DT, and running around while firing wildly. I'm a simple man. =)
Hope this bump isn't bad considering this is the megathread...
But anyways I just got the Season Pass and other minor DLCs thanks to the recent Steam sale, so just had a couple of questions about them:
1. For the DLCs, can we play through them as much as we want and redo the quests and stuff? Referring to the old mini-campaign ones and the 3 new holiday themed ones.
2. What mode is best for leveling beyond 50?
But if I just want to see the story/boss I can still go back to the easiest setting to check it out right? And it'll still be available on UVHM later?
the four main DLC's has different modes just like the main game does
Something that's sort of been skipped over is that once you defeat the boss in story mode at the end of a certain difficulty, it'll scale everything in that playthrough (including the DLCs) to the appropriate level cap. For example, when you kill the Warrior at the end of TVHM, everything in your game will be 60ish with raid bosses being 63ish. If you wait to do the DLC until after you've beaten the story mode, things in the DLC will be scaled to the appropriate level as well.
One thing I still don't really get is, according to the BL2 wiki page:
"Gameplay progress, including all missions, can be reset in game mode selecting screen."
But I don't even see that option...is it because I still haven't completed much in the main UVHM playthrough or what? And I guess this option on UVHM wouldn't apply to DLC?
