This premier build is one of Zane’s highest damaging builds focusing around his Digiclone Action Skill. Primary focus on Splash weapons because Digiclone gets your splash bonuses (including ASE 125% Splash).
This is the recommended beginner Zane build to help farm for gear and clear endgame content. From there, you can decide to transition to a different build from this doc.
Any gun that deals Splash Damage can be a menace when in Digiclone hands. In order for it to receive the ASE Splash bonus, you must be holding the anointed gun in your hand, not Digiclone. In most cases you will want ASE Splash on the gun unless it cannot roll the anoint, in which you’ll be fine with N2M 100%. Additionally, for fun, you can use the 30% Ammo Regen while Digiclone is Active anoint as well, which works great with high mag size guns. A few personal recommendations for guns:
Shield choice depends on personal playstyle.
Grenade slot is mostly anointment fodder for ASE 50% Elemental, but thanks to Duct Tape Mod we can still benefit from the grenade itself. On Grenade Thrown 25% is also a fine option for an anointment. Digiclone does not benefit from either anoint.
AoE Damage in the second or third slot also gives Splash Radius and is preferred for many setups. Digiclone does not benefit from Splash Radius increases.
