Skill trees have been available for several days now, but I don't think there was a thread about it, and I thought a poll might be fun. As of the creation of this thread, the game is now one month away from being released, and gameplay of all four classes can be found online.


Amara - The Siren

Gifted with powerful Siren abilities, Amara is a renowned champion of the people and bonafide badass. Using her action skills she can Phaseslam the ground to damage nearby enemies and knock them into the air, Phasegrasp enemies in place with a giant ethereal fist, or even Phasecast an astral projection of herself that deals damage to everything in its path.


FL4K - The Beastmaster

FL4K is a wandering robot who always brings one of their three loyal pets into battle to buff stats and attack enemies. Their action skills let them send forth dive-bombing Rakk, teleport Gamma Burst-irradiated pets through rifts, and even Fade Away to temporarily become invisible while moving faster and regenerating health.


Moze - The Gunner

Moze is a battle-hardened former Vladof army soldier who specializes in mechanized combat. She uses an action skill to digistruct and climb into her bipedal tank, Iron Bear, which has hardpoints suitable for mixing, matching, and mounting high-velocity Railguns, rapid-firing Miniguns, semi-automatic Grenade Launchers, flamethrowers, pneumatic fists, and homing rocket launchers.


Zane - The Operative

Born into Pandora's notorious Flynt family, Zane is a semi-retired corporate hitman who always has a gadget up his sleeve. His action skills include a SNTNL drone that flys around and attacks enemies with a machine gun, a deployable Barrier shield, and a Digi-Clone that simultaneously distracts enemies and dishes out damage and which Zane can teleport to switch places with.



So who do you most want to play as, and why? What about most interested to least interested?

For me, that would be Zane > FL4K > Amara > Moze.

I haven't looked at the skill trees and won't until i get the game. But from what little I've watched of the game I'd probably go Moze > Zane > FL4K > Amara.

The siren hasn't looked that interesting so far but I haven't seen much. Could pick Zane first who knows.

Probably FL4K since Tiny Tina was my favorite from Borderlands 2 and this is pretty close to it. I thought Moze was like it but I don't want to climb into a Mech, I want the Mech to fight with me (which they might do).

I’ll be taking Amara first as I always play Siren first, my friend seems determined he is taking Flak or Moze first as he likes having pets or adds with him.

I think I'm going to play whichever Borderlands character apologizes for Gearbox's asshattery towards Matt “SupMatto” Sommers and unbans his YouTube account.

This crap from Gearbox is really turning me off from the game--moreso than the bland/unappealing character design.

---

If I had to choose, though, probably Moze or Amara.

Fl4k and Zane look half-assed, though Amara isn't much better. And Moze screams "Hey, let's take Gaige and let the player hop INTO the robot instead"...and that's it for making her different.

I’m having a pretty hard time choosing to be honest. Leaning towards Fl4K for my solo playthrough, Zane or Amara if I play with friends. I’m a borderlands junkie so I’ll probably play them all eventually
