The Strongest Mordecai Skill Builds. [Civil Discussion Only]

#1neorhetoricPosted 11/2/2009 4:25:10 PM
There seems to be plenty of deliberation going on around the forums about which build is the strongest for Mordecai. Although it's nigh-impossible to come up with the absolute best build for every situation and personal play-style, there must to be a way to come up with the strongest individual builds through intelligent discussion.

This thread is meant for intelligent, civil discussion about Class Skill Builds. Flaming, Baiting, or the encouraging of Baiting (of any kind), is highly discouraged here. If you feel the need to do any of the aforementioned things, feel free not to post in this thread. Thanks.

Here's the build I'm going for. Comments are welcome, but I'm more interested in hearing about what you think the strongest builds are. If this is successful, maybe we can move on to the other characters as well.

Let's figure this out! ;)

trespass is overrated- its good, but not zomgzcrazyhaxxorz! good. a lot of people are split on this, the fact is its great for guardian farming, but thats the only situation in which it really shines. other then that its highly circumstantial.

splitting your skills between disparate weapon specific abilities is always a bad move when youre talking about a good build- a good build is one that uses all of its abilities as often as possible when in combat.

since you cant use a sniper rifle and pistol at the same time, your build is effectively operating at roughly half strength at all times. some specced for just pistols or just snipers could match your power at half your level.

cmon, guys! this is like power gamer 101 stuff here! if you just like the build thats all well and good, but presenting it as your idea of the best build period is..... well.... just a joke, quite frankly.

This, IMO, takes the cake for the strongest DPS Mord build.

What a dirty mouth you have there, I think I'll wash it out with fist.

This is basically my build except i put 5 points in the reload speed rather than the gain health per each bloodwing strike

^ My current build. Abuses my Cyclops with LV25ish proficiency and lots of extra fire rate. Fast Hands is epic with Killer; 70% reload speed with a kill. Bird of Prey and Trespass are the two best skills in the game: Why not use both?

This is my build and I use this mod:
+78% Pistol Fire Rate
+3 Deadly
+3 Loaded
+3 Relentless
It also regenerates ammo for pistols but I can't see what the value is.

My pistol proficiency is maxed at 50 and I use a Cold Torment with 259 damage and 9.5 fire rate.
