Mordecai Predator Skill?

#1mjh410Posted 1/5/2010 10:08:14 PM
Is the predator skill worth it in the long run? I mean the base cooldown of the Bloodwing is 28 sec, and if you max it out to attack 6 enemies, plus get a mod that will add at least 3 maybe 4 more enemies. It seems like by the time it attacked 9-10 enemies, and returned it would be time to send him out again, or is it really fast. Just trying to decide if I want to put those points in to that tree, for 15 sec off of an already short cooldown.

Here's the 2 different builds I'm looking at:

Basically this one gives me the increase sniper damage that I would like, with some bloodwing cooldown decreases.

or

Which has the predator, cooldown skill, but I don't care for any of the other 3 skills to unlock predator, and the gun crazy seems best, but just seems like a waste, I'd rather have higher damage on snipers.

Thanks for your input.

That's my build. It seems to work pretty well for me. I'm pretty deadly with a sniper, and the cool down reduction per hit is effective as far as I'm concerned. Thought about respecing Out for Blood into Fast Hands because I rarely get hit, but the slight reload bonus didn't seem enough to replace the healing, seeing as when I do get hit, I get hit hard. I basically only use a sniper unless I get bored or am running out of ammo. I'm not sure how useful Predator would be, but you said you wanted to be a strong sniper, and that's what I focused on. =)

I'll never look at an apple the same way again.

Cooldown doesn't start until bloodwing comes back.

Is that because of Carrion Call?

Must be. But if I get enough hits off, by time he comes back, he's ready to go again. I'll check it later to make sure though. Wouldn't be the first time I've confused myself. lol I also have a class mod that increases Carrion Call by 3 or 4, so it may be that it just jumps really fast after he comes back.
