did a quick run as skill build, not going to viable for me after TU5. my CD is almost 4x longer! though they did "buff" the dmg, it's not going to be enough. it's like 1 step forward, 2 steps back … andthey say changes going to make skill build better?

darn … need to scrap my skill build. going berserk now!
devs already said not all skill changes are in current PTS

very high armor, but pretty low health. if your build is around unbreakable, what kind of brandset is the chest piece? Gila Guard?

Also what weapon is your main?

And what are the talents you are using?

What are your attribute scores like? 4 / 11 / 0?

and do you plan to raid with the build?

If you want, we can help to critique and advise so long as you are willing to share / screenshot all your gear and the detailed stats. This was my roasting from last week: https://imgur.com/a/4pcxSLj

of course it has changed since then so please do not follow this build I shared, it is just an example of how to get feedback.

Hi sorry for the late reply.

what kind of brandset is the chest piece? >> Gila Guard 2/3

Also what weapon is your main? >> Black Market M60

And what are the talents you are using?
Mask >> Centered
Vest >> Unbreakable
Holster >> Exotic just for the quick draw since i'm running LMG
Backpack >> Hardened Armor
Kneepad >> Patience

What are your attribute scores like? >> 9/11/1

and do you plan to raid with the build? >> unfortunately can't due to current clan i randomly join all MIA. waanted to try raid though. will try to upload pictures when i'm home. now still at office

oic thanks ... so skill builds coming on 8th but they already convert CD to haste. this sure cause alot of confusion. I felt they might as well push forward the PTS live schedule to 8th?

anyway skill build on hold. going ahead with berserk, quite fun with 25% AoK (though will change to HoK once I find another suitable piece to craft)

wow that means alot of the blues went into your armor? ok anyways you prob balance out your blues abit. 400+K armor is very high and may or may not be useful. not sure what your other reds plus need the stats to see if your reds were helping u kill. i had biggest problem in the past, my reds were really terrible.

speaking of which: the Centered talent - is dependent on performing a headshot. with an LMG main, i think it's rather difficult to guarantee that, even with an AR, unless they are close range. Plus LMG's class specific traits have bonus to dmg for targets out of cover. Only marksman rifles have the special trait for headshot dmg bonus.

anyways our clan is still very active and do raid on a fairly regular basis each week. like last night there were at least 2 raiding parties rushing to complete their weekly raid. all are working class folks with family so if you're interested just drop me a PM for the discord link. no guarantee on raid success because raid is really end-game kinda play right now so everyone has to be close to their A-game and needs the ability to comms back to everyone in voice chat. if you're shy or not comfortable to chat in voice it will work against the entire team because voice comms does help alot in the raid. but because of the raid, it helps improve my build and inventory as well.

btw, i have a few BM M60s as well but might switch out to the Infantry MG5. that seems to be the new meta

then why still sticking with clan? better change to another clan soon

if you running dual LMG, do you still need quick draw? with gunner, LMG going to have at least 150 rounds!

am running AR + LMG / Shotgun. don't find the need for quick draw. tried talent "fill all up" once & find it not necessary at all

guys, need some opinions & advises

been using for PvE & pretty happy with this build so far. just wish health could be higher (e.g 200k) compared to depending on skills, this is easier for hard bounties. maybe CP4 will be easier too, will try that out soon.

so like to know

Berserk need to use clutch and try get as much crit chance as possible. W/o it, u wun dare to 100% activate berserk. Even defender drone dun last long enough de. AOK/HOK is kinda useless coz its very low compared to your overall armour/hp pool.

Tbh, ur build is kinda over the place. U spec armour when u need to reduce armour to activate berserk. Also, to use berserk in raid, u need know the mechanics well. I only dare to use berserk build in 2nd and 3rd boss nia. For 1st boss, i prefer to use unstoppable (maybe looking to build same set but change chest to bloodsucker or unbreakable). 4th boss cfm unstoppable with 300k armour. Coz when drones fly ard, u shoot them down and can get buff liao, very easy. Tried berserk and i die a lot faster. I also find running AR with chatterbox to be the best combo for PVE.

This is my AR berserk set frm memory.

Armour: 200k
HP: 174k
Skill power: 178

Build: 11/4/1

Mask: murakami
46% dte, 11k hp

Bag: 511
10.5% wpn dmg, 5% chc, and some chd.
Vital and hard hitting. Trying to find pyogostyle with same attributes and talents except change chd to hp

Chest: FG stridvast
13% wpn dmg, 10.5% chc, 23k hp
Berserk, vital
Try to get this version coz this 1 have red mod slot.

Gloves: alps climbing gloves
11% ar dmg
Clutch
One of the few gloves with red mod slot. Trying to find others to swap out if needed.

Holster: gila jackrabbit
36k hp, 11.5%chc
Gila holster is the only holster with 2 red mod slots. Worth to get. To get full 15 or 15.5% chc, ur hp need to be around 20-23k hp max. Got a few and tested the combo with my 15% chc. Im trying to find a very low armour set with high hp so that i can max out chc easily with high hp.

Kneepads: fenris
22k hp
Hard hitting and patience
The only kneepads with 2 talents but im trying to get HH with braced instead. Patience dun work here for my build. Lol. I have other WW/DH but trying to find them with blue attributes. Max chc is 9% or so, so not that worth to throw away 22k hp. At most sacrifice mask hp for chc.

1) are you using your LMG to actually fight? or are you using the talents on the LMG to help boost your AR?
if the former, then you immediately are not taking advantage of Berserk talent. (But I see you are already using a Fenris chest piece which is AR centered, so I duno if using the LMG in combat is that effective)

2) also CHC/CHD combo requires to proc in the critical range. Are your combat engagements in that range or outside that range? plus if your CHC/CHD are low, the chances of it actually helping your engagements is probably not high.

3) AOK/HOK maybe might be useful in most PvE, but you gotta kill and that depends on doing enough damage. see #2. part of every build is dependent on your playstyle as well. so think about how you play and that might help you plan your build as well. plus knowing the skills you are using might help.

4) Which specialization are you using or plan to use? Some have passive boosts like Survivalist has some nice passives for solo play.

can join our discord to discuss builds and get more ideas if you want. plenty of them still playing and chatting. they even went on some raid training last night with very broken builds (mostly pvp builds). surprisingly managed to get to 3rd checkpoint.

Thanks for your time to reply

yeah most use Berserk with clutch popularized by widdz? Since I don't have enough gears for Crit-Clutch yet, so am trying a different approach to using Berserk.To increase weapon dmg as my armor depletes to improve chances of killing, then quickly replenish armor with AoK. my Aok is around 36% which i think is not too shabby

but after further testing, I find Berserk really risky unless my Health pool is higher (prefers >250k). So falling back to Unbreakable/Bloodsucker.
Berserk need to use clutch and try get as much crit chance as possible. W/o it, u wun dare to 100% activate berserk. Even defender drone dun last long enough de. AOK/HOK is kinda useless coz its very low compared to your overall armour/hp pool.
no choice le, gear with Vital health not suitable. i think will stick to Unbreakable/Bloodsucker.
Tbh, ur build is kinda over the place. U spec armour when u need to reduce armour to activate berserk. Also, to use berserk in raid, u need know the mechanics well. I only dare to use berserk build in 2nd and 3rd boss nia.

Thanks for taking your time to review & reply

Mostly AR + Shotgun. LMG to replace shotgun for some situation whereby I need to spray many bullets. with unhinged + LMG dmg mod, so not too bad lah
1) are you using your LMG to actually fight? or are you using the talents on the LMG to help boost your AR?
if the former, then you immediately are not taking advantage of Berserk talent. (But I see you are already using a Fenris chest piece which is AR centered, so I duno if using the LMG in combat is that effective)
Not using clutch, thought Berserk don't need CHC/CHD?
2) also CHC/CHD combo requires to proc in the critical range. Are your combat engagements in that range or outside that range? plus if your CHC/CHD are low, the chances of it actually helping your engagements is probably not high.
for normal events & mission, using shotgun closeup fight. AR to pick further targets. shotgun have premeditated to increase dmg, AR ranger.

Tested Berserk further & it seems risky without high health pool. so switching back to unbreakable/bloodsucker safer.

Only using Chem reinforcer & Revive Hive
Previously with Skill, Chem reinforcer , Assault Turret & Cluster Seeker mines
3) AOK/HOK maybe might be useful in most PvE, but you gotta kill and that depends on doing enough damage. see #2. part of every build is dependent on your playstyle as well. so think about how you play and that might help you plan your build as well. plus knowing the skills you are using might help.
Gunner ... yeah will join when ready for raid. now already got few ideas from youtube streamers but not enough gears. so planning for 3 builds ~ PvE, Skill maybe Berserk-Crit-Clutch
4) Which specialization are you using or plan to use? Some have passive boosts like Survivalist has some nice passives for solo play.

can join our discord to discuss builds and get more ideas if you want. plenty of them still playing and chatting. they even went on some raid training last night with very broken builds (mostly pvp builds). surprisingly managed to get to 3rd checkpoint.
