Well I plan on my first character being Axton and here's my planned point allocations. Still bummed you won't be able to max all three trees.

I'm still betting that there will be Class Mods, which boost certain skills (So you can do a minimum buy-in, and still receive the effects). And then I'm most certain we will get future level cap increases. But yeah, I hit a few snags trying to do some of my builds already.

But I have a great idea where I'm going now!

This is what I'm currently looking at. I'll probably end up sacrificing 5 points each in Motion and Harmony to fully complete Cataclysm. We'll see how things go, either way, the Siren is still going to be beefy as hell.

Aw man, do I have 2 turrets, or extra guns on one turret? Choices choices...

EDIT - and you can move now in FFYL? One of Axtons skill ( last ditch effort ) improves movement speed while in FFYL.

I had this choice to and decided 1 turret with 2 guns because its same amount of firepower and you only need to place one also it has added slag effect. Unless you have the rocket volley and then 2 turrets that would be alot more damage than 1 rocket volly + 2 guns

I think I'll try out Axton. Go a little guerrilla for rockets and health regen, then some survival for shields and two turrets and a quicker cooldown.

Just like in the first game!

I was originally going with Zer0 but I might go with Axton instead.

This is my initial build for Maya. I really want to build on her Ruin tree and go for Cataclysm. Harmony tree would be good to focus on for multiplayer, if I were to play a support role with all the healing that can be done.


I still stand by my belief that it's better to not have maxed out trees. Yeah, I want all the skills, but this forces us to really think about whats important, and creates diversity. I am looking forward to any level cap increases tho. A few more points won't hurt. I wonder if we are looking at another LVL 69 final cap, or a different number this time around.

This is my Maya support build for co-op. Phaselock is extended up to 6.5 seconds past normal length with the team regen at 5% of health per second, plus the phaselock jumps to another enemy when the first is killed and health orbs of 15% come out to the team.

Kinetic reflection helps mitigate damage to Maya who also has constant health regen on herself with res to help anyone who falls. Her phaselock cool down is also at +30%. Not sure about thoughtlock, it extends phaselock and gives someone to help fight, but also extends cooldown by three seconds which kind of negates Quicken.

Now have to decide on helpful Maya or Suicidal Axton for first play through.

So far, I've made a class spec for Axton, Maya, and Salvador, but haven't bothered with Zero yet and can't wait to play the Gaige the Mechromancer

All in all I like the skill trees this go around

I didn't really like Mordecai in the first game. I snipe, only in certain situations. I like being up close and in the fray. Zer0 really has this down and perfected. I'm now torn between him or Maya to start with.

Just the insane damage boosts he gets, coupled with the extra benefits from Deception, like jumping from target to target, while recloaking after each kill. Damn sexy...

I wonder if we can buy a certain amount of skill points with Eridium or if there's some side quests that give skill points like in the first one. I'm just a few points off from making my perfect Gunzerker!

For me I just wanted to get a little peek at the skills so I could at least get an idea of where I'd want my skills to go. Of course when I actually get the game my point distribution won't be exactly the same as I plan since there might be something that requires me to do something else and so on...

I think my Maya's going to do Cataclysm as a Primary and Harmony as a secondary...but dammit if evenly doing it for all 3 doesn't look great either...So many great choices...

Yeah, I was thinking about that too. I've come to the conclusion that the skills that increase your damage and reload speed will basically become null once you get high enough in your badass ranks. This is what I'm probably going to end up doing.

I was really looking forward to Zero but his tree basically forces you to melee... Very disappointed.

I was bored and made some skill sets. Obviously some of these are subject to change until I can get in-game and fine tune them and see what does and does not work. I might make some hybrids later.


Maya - DPS



Maya - Support



Maya - Tank



Zer0 - Melee DPS



Zer0 - Ranged DPS



Salvador - Tank



Salvador - DPS



Axton - Tank



Axton - DPS

This is why I said I was looking at Zer0 at first and might switch to Axton.

Zer0 being my started, I've done him. Then I might move onto Axton for pure fun! Got them done, but I'm not sure on how to set the other two up yet. Never played as that kind of class in the last game.

Edit: Just noticed the box covering Axton skills. Can't be arsed to change it, I think you can work it out :P

Zer0


Axton

Whats wrong with Zero?He has by far the most damage and crit bonus skills and will probably be the most effective killing machine.

I agree with you on Axton though,he just seams a little boring compared to the rest.
