Been away for quite a while. Is sal still the best class?

#1iiTryhardPosted 7/11/2014 5:45:58 PM
I kinda just lost interest just after the last season of DLC ended (after tiny tina i guess). So at that time, grog/moneyshot sal was hands down the best, most faceroll class. Is that still the case? I'm currently levelling a krieg since i think he's fun, but i was just wondering if the tier list is still the same.

Is it still (for solo)

God: Sal
1. Krieg, Zer0
2. Maya, Axton
3. Mechromancer

Trying to decide what order i play the classes in. thanks.

Sal has the highest ceiling for straight damage, but they're all amazing at their best.

Anarchy Gaige is stupid powerful. I certainly wouldn't put her in last. But heck, I don't think I'd feel comfortable putting anybody "last" at this point.

Sal just breaks the game mechanics. Probably the most cookie-cutter out of all the characters. If Gearbox patched his exploits he would just be average at best.

Sal can be way OP given the right gear/skills but a good Zero player can give him a run for his money- as for 'Craig'- considering how much I hate the sniping enemies that hide behind cover when you're in FFL, having Lite the Fuse is just a great way of saying "Screw you, bandit!". I like him as a great change of pace from the norm...

From my perspective..
(Easiest to Solo)
S: Sal
A : Zer0
B : Krieg, Axton
C : Mechro
D : Maya

To back up the original idea of sal for those unwary :

Zer0 takes the funnest gameplay in consensus, as an obvious point.. But zerker will always be the easiest character to solo as. As long as the money shot "bug" exists alone with the rubi and other healing methods for general killing of mooks, the zerker will always be in the top of its own facerolling tier.

But to answer your question directly... No changes have been made to the style of other characters. =/

Yes, zerker can still kill nearly every raidboss faster than other chars.. Im not sure of the current times, as I havent checked lately, but CA stacking does not apply to my personal criteria even if it has managed to surpass sals times.
