Hoping she can solo raid bosses and UVHM. Didn't want to rely on anarchy. I'm pretty much not capable of not reloding. Also I have no idea how I should equip so any equipment advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

lol. At first I had trouble no reloading, but now I'm so used to anarchy that I forget that I'm allowed to reload with OTHER characters. Even with other Games, in battlefield 3 I got myself in trouble due to that "don't reload" mentality.

Without knowing what class mod you're running, I would say a shock weapon for starters. If you want to get the most out of it though, go with a shock plasma caster and either a catalyst or Zapper mod.

I would highly recommend anarchy even if you're afraid of accidental reloads. Thats what Discord is for.

I actually really like this build, almost as good as my shock/anarchy custom build (DT sucks, anarchy forever)

Well I ran a BFF/Anarchy before and liked it but I really hated the reloding mechanic. I'm definitely going anarchy free this time. Any more equipment advise for UVHM? I think the skills in my build will take care of slag but I could be wrong. Should I farm for an electric conferance call? Sham shield or bee? Both?

Discord?

The Sham will be way more helpful than The Bee in the long run.

Try and get any class mod that increases shock chance or damage. Then get a Storm pearlescent, Shock Butcher and/or avenger. Then get a Sham or Bee Shield.

I'm no expert Gaige player but I'm trying to experiment and get better with her. Here's my planned build at 61

http://www.bl2skills.com/mechromancer.html#551150000000155005150500411050100000

This is using a Legendary Mechro class mod. There might be a better choice of mod out there if you want something more specific but I like the variety in skill boosts, even though I don't take full advantage of all of them. Cooking Up Trouble, The Better Half, More Pep, and Smaller Lighter Faster still gain a sizable bonus from this mod.

The build focuses on you instead of relying on Deathtrap. I don't find any of her final tier skills to be especially useful. Sharing is Caring has potential to be great but the BFF skill tree isn't the focus of this build (skill points are spread out a lot here but I consider this to be mainly a Shock/Anarchy build). I've tried using Make It Sparkle but it didn't seem to be too effective - does anyone know if Deathtrap will Slag enemies using that? If that were the case, I'd reallocate the point from Fancy Mathematics, which may be extraneous anyway thanks to Blood-Soaked Shields. Otherwise that point could go towards One Two Boom if you do want Deathtrap to have another attack. (Another question - does Deathtrap gain skill bonuses, like Wires Don't Talk as well?)

I haven't tried the skill Interspersed Outburst yet, but I use the Slagga on her so it may be unnecessary. It sounds like a good skill if you don't have a reliable Slag weapon though.

Like I said though, I'm not too experienced with Gaige yet, so I'd like to hear other people's thoughts on my build if you think there's somewhere I could improve.
