Summary

I've played many other games, am an avid retro gamer (NES-SNES era, although I did play a few games in the Atari period). Other then the occasional new title (especially the Guitar Hero games) I play the MMO Final Fantasy XI for a few hours a week.

I've been playing Borderlands for a few weeks now; love this game! If anyone has any suggestions at all, be it character builds, wiki editing, anything, feel free to post a note on my talk page. Having finished the game twice on my Soldier, I am now working on my Siren, and am about 1/3rd of the way through...

Characters

Roland

  • I rarely use the turret, so I went with a more support build for this, focusing on survivability.

Mordecai

Level 18 Hunter

  • My goal is to focus strictly on DPS, with some obvious health mods. As with my soldier, I rarely use my special ability, so I doubt I will be putting any points into Bloodwing improvements unless someone gives me a compelling reason I should do so.

Brick

Level 11 Berserker

  • Although it's pretty early for me to say definitively what I'm going to do with this character, I know for sure that I am going to be focusing on tanking first and foremost. As I do not use Grenades or Rockets often, I don't think I'm going to be going with those skills...we'll just have to see, I guess. After maxing out Juggernaut, I intend to max out Pay Back and Unbreakable.
