So...Nisha> Athena> Wilhelm?

I would also accept Athena> Nisha> Wilhelm.

Whose skill trees looks better? Nisha or Athena?

This is really tough for me, but right now I'd say Nisha. No wait Athena! No wait Nisha! I can't decide!

Well it depends on how much sponge the enemies are

Wilhelm + X1 laser with Replay feature = boss

Nisha automatically loses points in multiplayer for a lack of team buffs or enemy debuffs. She also potentially loses points for focusing on non-elemental damage when elementals were approximately a gajillion times stronger overall in the endgame.

To me her most interesting feature would be messing around with the Order stacks, since her Slam can grant up to all 30 maximum stacks at once(+5 stacks for each enemy damaged with a slam).

Wilhelm >>> Athena >>> Nisha >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Trash > Claptrap

Wilhelm brings the MOST utility for solo play, as well as several secondary fires and multiple ways of damaging the enemy with his bots. Athena can be a great damage soaker, but beyond that I don't see her getting much use unless the shield is REALLY good.

Nisha will be mediocre. I don't see her dual-wielding pistol buff being that useful, the Law and Order tree is just absolute garbage, and the 3rd tree just looks "meh" at that. Why these desperate pistol-slinging people think she'll be good is absurd. Hell, you have to come into MELEE RANGE for a good third of her active skills to actually be of any use, which REALLY puts you in the danger zone.

Claptrap is meme garbage, so I'll make sure to never play him regardless.

Part of what makes the Law and Order tree work, as far as I can tell from the theorycrafting, is the various healing abilities it provides. Rough Rider basically means you hit the 30 Order stacks immediately via a Smash attack.

As of right now, I'd probably do a Riflewoman and Law and Order build with her, with a light touch of Fan the Hammer to extend the Showdown special with each kill. The hipfire bonuses from Riflewoman should stack well with Showdown to keep your accuracy high.

The only tree of Nisha's that struck me as amazing was the middle. And yeah, her action skill might be auto aim, but Wilhelm's drones will probably be even more mindless(Deathtrap and the Sabre turret can solo BL2, even on UVHM, while you stand there doing nothing, and I doubt the drones will be any different).

If anything it's Wilhelm>Nisha>Athena.

Pretty much. I'm not extremely knowledgeable to give a valid opinion on Gauge and Deathtrap, but Axton provided so much utility and power in late game it was amazing. Leading up to UVHM you can have a turret that shoots missiles and just pile up damage, and by the time you hit your 3rd playthrough, you don't have a huge need for slag due to how much slag your turret(s) can stack up on an enemy is extraordinary.

I just think if it's something that Borderlands 2 hit the nail on the head, it's the pet classes, because the Sabre Turret is just so amazing.
