that's understandable (if you get bored with the turret doing all of the work), although i too would recommend argyle gargoyle's suggestions: make a build that makes you work in conjunction with the turret. for example: dont add rockets, slag gun, or a phalanx shield. instead get the ability where you get stronger every time your turret is out. go with the middle skill tree's final skill: nuke turret. i think that would better suit your gameplay.
I use the turret for two things. Either for getting me back up when I'm about to go FFYL, or to start a fight with a big damn explosion (and who doesn't love to start a fight with a nuke?). The turret is my second player, not the guy I lean on to get me through an area. --- Joy puking my face off
I prefer the jack of all trades build with the Legendary class mod. Running around like a maniac while doing tons of damage without being pigeonholed into using one particular weapon is very pleasing to me.
