Planning to make a 2nd character, so Maya or Gaige?

#1Roxas52Posted 1/3/2013 11:00:24 AM
First, I've already done about everything with my lvl 50 Axton so I'm looking for a new character who plays differently. Before the Mechromancer came out I was set on playing as Maya for my 2nd character, but everyone here seems to be saying that she is the worst character to play as. Is this true? My only hesitance towards playing as Gaige is that her skill is so similar to Axton's turret.

There's nothing wrong with Maya. Ruin is pretty crazy good. I haven't played with the other trees much, but being able to heal is probably a godsend in multiplayer.

i did Gaige as my second 50, and IMO did not like her 1 bit.... deathtrap spends more time doing nothing then killing.... though when he does decide to attack he does a good amount of damg, but going from enemy to enemy was so random (sometimes he would kill then just sit there) he would die before killing 3-4 bandits...

my 3rd 50 was maya and she was moved up to being my alt (my main is a 50 axton as well) and i loved her, shes a boss killer, especially invincible, since they can be slagged... and is just a beast 1 on 1 IMO....

but i def know there are ppl that love both...

Anarchy Gaige is fun. DT did good for me most of the time except when he would just sit there and try to restore my shields while I was downed...

Maya is fun once you get going too. I have 4/5 at 50, at 45 with the last one.

Maya is my favorite. Very flexible, can handle any type of enemy without problem. Except may be those immune to phaselock, mainly thrashers.

Gaige is crazy fun and powerful, but you have to be extremely careful not to die and lost your anarchy stacks. And you have to rely on robot to kill flying enemies. And lots of skills are bugged. And it is not fit for short game sessions (again, because of anrachy stacks).
But still, crazy fun.

Gaige is very boring to play. You can let Deathtrap kill everything, or use Anarachy+Rubi and be completely invincible.

Melee Maya is my favorite character to play.

Having played all 5 characters legitimately to level 50, Maya and Axton are by far my two favorites. I'd put Gaige towards the bottom with Zero.

I can solo raid bosses with Maya without a problem. Maya is also incredible in 4 player co-op where you can instantly revive teammates, which also nets you easy XP.

Well it looks like you guys told me what I was hoping for. Maya it is :)

Gaige is hands down the strongest, and you cant miss with her, her bullets bounce of the ground and homes in on enemies, I can clear a room without have to enter it, I just stand and shoot from the outside.

I have all char lvl 50, Maya is awsome, but Gaige is a beast. I never use my DT
