There hasn't been a favorite builds topic for a bit. I will go first.

Pure offense w Legendary Cat mod for max damage. I do sometimes switch to legendary siren when I need to buff shields and cool down rate for thought crowd control situations. I use moxxi weapons and such for healing, and have crowd control for days. Suits my playstyle perfectly. Run blockade or antagonist, or sometime sham or transformer depending on enemy types. Relic of choice depending on guns and tactics. Typically bone of ancients for cool down and damage bonuses. Grenade mod of choice but I use stormfront and magic missile most times.

I know it works because I play OP8 only and usually solo.

Share yours and why. :)

Like it a lot, but is Backdraft useful in OP8? That's my only question/concern. Maya's my last one getting up there, so I figured I'd ask someone who knows.

Really liked something like this for a pistol / Jacobs shotgun build:

Tons of fun with Anarchists / Hyperion pistols / Striker. Usually using a Legendary Killer mod.

Sadly backdraft, helios, and blight Phoenix don't scale well at OP levels. Having said that, I prefer it over flicker for getting down to ruin because a percentage of a percentage doesn't change your chance for elemental damage significantly enough to invest 5 skill points into it.
Also, the fire melee damage is crap, but you get instant health while holding moxxi s like the grog nozzle. The burst of explosive damage both from shield depletion and helios often will be enough to get a quick charge of health to keep from dying if you notice you're in trouble and switch to moxxi gun in time.
One last thought on backdraft, if you build right, using a transformer shield and shock slow hand you can hit damn near invincibility when mobbing. There is a youtube video titled backdraft Maya or something like that, sorry I don't have the link. Anyway check it out. :)

Thank you for posting your build too killbot, it looks like fun. :)

my fave is gaige partly cause i see salvador as too easy

http://www.bl2skills.com/mechromancer.html#550000000000550005050550415050151050

slayer mod, antagonist and fibber, or electric shamfleet combo. 2nd one easily rocks op8 w/ 600 stacks.

if not gaige, krieg

www.bl2skills.com/psycho.html#50535015550150550005155100000000000

explosive melee hybrid running rough rider, a +hp +rocket +some other ammo relic, a tasty crunch mod. if not going nuts in melee with over 3.8mil hp feeling almost nothing, unloading with an ogre or DPUH to keep stacks up while waiting for hp to drain again for another 3 min rage.

on another krieg note, i wanna try a hellfire build with flames of the firehawk but the massive hp loss when swapping from rough rider is a killer losing 3mil hp

Sal is too easy, but shamfleeting with 600 stacks and no need to aim isn't too easy?
