Which Krieg skill tree is better for up-close, other than mania?

#1Aadrian1234Posted 5/13/2013 8:01:34 PM(edited)
I am planning out my Krieg skill tree, and I'm going to make my Krieg a close-up powerhouse, and I'm going with Mania for that. If I've mapped it out correctly, I can go down one more skill tree once I get to the bottom of Mania. Which is better for close-up engagements where I will constantly be in the enemies faces, Bloodlust or Hellborn? I'm leaning towards Hellborn for its damage reduction skills, but I've also spotted a few nice skills in Bloodlust.

Edit: Topic typo, meant to say "Up-close engagements"

Why do people keep asking these questions when Krieg hasn't been released yet and nobody knows the answer?

We do know the answer. Mania IS the definitive Krieg melee tree. the other 2 trees are not.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

There have been a few skill reveal videos showing off nearly all the skills this past week. Krieg is already finished, we are just waiting for MS to roll out the Marketplace update

I'd go with Bloodlust.

The reason is simple. Mania mostly focuses on melee and Rampaging. Bloodlust has quite a few skills that buff Buzz Axe Rampage/melee, such as Blood Overdrive, Buzz Axe Bombardier, and Blood Trance. Hellborn has a few skills that buff melee but not Buzz Axe Rampage.

Basically, you're gonna be using Buzz Axe Rampage a lot with Mania, and Bloodlust has a lot more synergy with it.
