A good Maya not relying on healing?

#1pennywise666Posted 9/16/2012 12:37:42 PM
I plan to solo first, is Maya gonna be a reliable character or is she mainly support with good attack?
In other words, until I feel like resetting her skill tree for online and healing, is she gonna be able to hold her own?
Sorry, I didn't really follow up the buildup to BL2, I already was overhyped anyway, just checked the funny ads.
thanks ^^

W/ the Cataclysm tree specced correctly, you can do A LOT of elemental damage. Also, there is a skill in the Harmony tree that increases fire rate and damage when you Phaselock. Combine these and can you do really good damage w/ Maya.

I'm sure some will post their builds.

actually only the harmony tree really focuses on healing motion is for crowd control which could be very potent solo and cataclysm is for damage which is obviously good for solo

and combining a well specced cataclysm tree with motion down to converge seems very powerful

Thanks.
As much as I worked with builds before the first one came out using the virtual build maker there was, I'm so out of touch with that for the second. I guess I just wanted to rush finishing most of my games too cause they may just...well, I doubt I'll touch darksiders 2 before a long while once BL2 comes out. lol
Thanks if anyone post build suggestions too.

this is a build for what I was talking about earlier, it has seven points left for personal implementation but to me the combo of converge + chain reaction + cloud kill seems so brutal

Chain reaction would be great but the only negative of that is that only bullets apply. If the majority of the best guns are bullet based then I would exchange foresight for chain reaction then

Hmm, didn't think of that. So I wonder if elemental bullets don't bounce at all or if they just don't cause another elemental reaction.

Thats pretty much my build as well except I take Reaper instead of Blight Pheonix, just cause I dont feel like ill be in close enough range to take advantage of Pheonix but I suppose If i was going to use shorter range weapons like a Shotgun or something Id switch to it.
