As my dad always said, proper preparation prevents piss poor performance. In other words, take some time out of your day to visit the newly released Borderlands 2 skill point calculator and figure out how best to assign 50 levels of glorious skill point madness. That link is for the siren’s skill point calculator, but there are links at the bottom of the page for every character class.
Now, I know that you may be confused as to all of the options, so I’m going to make it easy for you. These are, in no uncertain terms, the things you should be most concerned with:
- Keeping me alive
- Reviving me
- Killing those that would prevent the previous two points
Now, if you’re playing a Commando and you want to roll with Team Binky, I better see not one, but two saber turrets drop when you call ’em forth. They also better have rockets and they better be magnetic. If they don’t, go back home and don’t come back until you can spec your character properly.
Me, I’m having a hard time deciding if I want to do more damage and cause neat things like explosions and elemental damage when I phaselock someone, or if I should focus on more healing oriented skills. Seeing how I tend to rush into battle in a desperate effort to collect every bullet fired in Pandora and store them in my liver, I’m thinking healing might be the better choice. Then again, if there are no enemies to shoot me, what need do I have for healing?
