...to try playing through the game with an entirely different build? Obviously the new skill points will allow for completely different builds, but I was thinking it might be fun to use the opportunity to try something new, and using a build just for farming purposes isn't quite the same as playing through the whole game with it.
For example, I've heard that melee Zero works better at higher levels, so I could see using the third playthrough to play the whole time as melee zero, and only use guns when there's no other choice (and I know some people have done this already at current playthroughs). Or, since I currently use a Ruin/Converge Siren, I might try a thoughtlock siren, or a harmony siren.
Anyone else thinking of doing something similar? If so, what build do you use now, and what build do you think you might want to try out?
So it looks like most people are planning on just more powerful versions of their current builds rather than trying something new.
I'll probably try out some new builds, but switch back if I don't think they're working (of course, I'll also have to find equipment to complement them), but ultimately I'll switch back to my ultra powerful main build once I get back up to the highest levels if I don't find something I like more.
The main reason I'm not planning on changing anything up is I have no interest in Anarchy, which leaves LBT and BFF.
I'd do the same if I were playing Maya, as I have no interest in Harmony, so it would be probably a 60 / 40 split between Calamity and Motion.
For Zer0, I've got no interest in his sniping tree, and would probably do 50 / 50 Bloodlust and Cunning.
Haven't played anyone else, so I can't comment on their trees.
Sure, but even with that, you could try variations on those current trees. Like thoughtlock and sub-sequence in the motion tree, maybe paired with wreck and elated to maximize your phaselocks usefulness, without having them just destroy things with elemental damage.
Or, if you currently do a bloodlust main with cunning sub-tree, switch that up before you start and go all-in on cunning and build back up to your melee tree (or vice versa).
I just think it's a good opportunity to try something different, and was wondering if anyone else felt the same way.
