SAK Zane’s Back, alright! Your classic Pre-DLC 5 build returns with the same old taste you know and love! Thanks to the ASA anoint fix, we can confidently bring this build back. This build prides itself on versatility with its action skills, gear, and anointment choice.
Recommended to play on Mayhem 10 for the Speed Demon easy modifier.
With the fix of ASA anoints, we now have a few options for anoints on this setup. SNTNL cryo for a nice bonus element, Barrier Crit for better accuracy and crit damage, 150/90 for one-shot single-pellet weapons. You can also opt-into the 30% Digiclone Ammo Regen anoint for high-mag size weapons. For bossing you can use ASE’s (like N2M or Splash) by Doppelbanging Digiclone. A few recommended guns are:
Alternatively, you can use Earl’s Reroll Machine while offline to have a chance to roll Airborne and Sliding Damage anoints on your guns. These are strong and fun alternatives for the anoints you may be used to, although they are a bit awkward to get.
For your anointment options, you can run either ASE 50% Elemental to give yourself a bit of damage when your action skills go down (either naturally or via Doppelbanging your Clone), or 15% SNTNL Movespeed to gain more damage from Violent Momentum.
Grenade slot is mostly anointment fodder, but thanks to Duct Tape Mod we can still benefit from the grenade itself. On Grenade Thrown 25% is also a great option for an anointment and procs when a grenade is spawned via Duct Tape Mod (or Fractal Frags if you desire a bit more chaos in your life). Digiclone does not benefit from said anointment.
Ideal Passive Rolls – Generic or Manufacturer Crit Damage, Splash Damage, Weapon Type Damage, Weapon Charge Speed, Magazine Size, Action Skill Damage
Ideal passive stats: Area of Effect Damage, Elemental Damage, Weapon Type Damage, Magazine Size, Movement Speed, Action Skill CDR
AoE Damage in the second or third slot also gives Splash Radius and is preferred for many setups.’
