Well u don't have to get those skills All 4 characters have skills that give their team mates more ammo, faster reload, faster fire rate, and/or heal But if u play solo than don't buy those skills Simple
After Roland got screwed over by pretty much being a pure support character? Nope. Somebody else can have that crap. He had a support tree and healer tree but healing is a support role... Way to go devs... X_X
Foolish mortals and your petty squabbles Giga-Graviton > Zanmato
hmmm siren seems fine. Even her harmony tree is decent for solo play except that her mid game changer will be useless.
Also not sure how good thoughtlock will be. If it changes how phaselock works then certain skills like converge (in the same tree) might not work now.
On top of that, it depends on how smart the AI will be against their friends since on certain enemies you do pitiful damage if not hitting a critical spot.
Cataclysm looks pretty good though. Elemental damage is already amazing and she is causing pretty much all of it at the same time to multiple enemies. Combine this with converge from the motion tree and it could get ugly.
I am a little disappointed at scorn though, yeah it is an extra ability that has its own cooldown but ruin already does that plus 10x more and seems like a real final game changer.
Being able to res from long range though...... I have a feeling my friends are going to be leaning on me to change from axton to maya for our team play.
