Unlike D3, with Bl2 you can target where your gear comes from and that is much more satisfying. I'm doing this area/mob/boss for this item.

Like D3 (before the expansion) or D2 the real game is UVHM and getting to level 72; and if you really feel tough 0P8.  In order to do that you really do need to farm for gear.  D3, with expansion, makes it really easy to get base line gear.  That said if you want to run the high level GRs you have to go back to grinding for the top end gear.

The more I hear about you guys grinding and getting the good gear, it makes me compare this to Diablo.  The way I played it was the equivalent of almost a single pass pick up what I find and just be happy with that!  I'm sure the journey would have been easier, if I'd bothered to farm (not easy or fun).

Sal is good for Raid bosses because of the grog 'exploit'.  Not a true exploit but pretty close.  As for Maya I don't think she is good for solo Raiding.  Multiplayer she is great to have along because she can boost the whole party.  It is possible that I suck at her and that I am wrong but the problem with Boss and Maya is that Phase lock does nothing, or very little, to them.  A lot of her skills depend on having phase lock up.  The one thing she can do is use a Sandhawk with a bee shield.  That combined with reaper can take down a boss health quickly.  The problem lies in getting a Sandhawk that is the right level. edit -- There is also a COM that boosts SMG damage that is important to have.

As for Axton I don't have all the info but the trick lines in taking advantage of a tediore weapon reload where you throw the weapon on the boss.  He has very fast reload and with the resulting explosion and buffs he can supposedly tear down a boss quickly.  I guess somewhere the is a site that has a record of the best speeds for boss running and that Axton is at the top of those lists.

I was under the impression that Salvador and Maya were the strongest for boss killing, with Axton being rather weaker but, not as situationally limited as Zer0.

This would be fun if I was really into the game.  I don't see this sucking me back just to do this.

I'll wait for the next expansion...

Ugh. Didn't see that. It was pretty hard to read on the mobile... But I hate it when they do that.

Been playing quite a bit of Yakuza Kiwami 2 this week.  About 2/3rds of the way through, just now getting to some of the really good references to the previous 2 games.  Laughed out loud several times during the Cabaret Club mini-game, such as the description of playing dress-up with the girls saying "You know you love it."  (How did they know?!  :o  ;))  And I just reached a point where a character from Yakuza 0's version of that game returns in glorious, jaw-dropping fashion that forced me to learn how to take screenshots on my PS4.  Combat-wise it's a little less stiff than 0 or Kiwami but also less precise and less deep since there aren't multiple combat styles, though you can move a lot faster and there are a lot more weapons and destructible items around.  The biggest upgrade between 0/Kiwami and this one is that the upgrade to Yakuza 6's system which cuts out almost all loading times and makes the world almost completely seamless.  You can walk in and out of any restaurant or activity building without loading, and even bring fights inside of them (though they aren't too happy about that).  The side stories have been good, but most aren't quite as ridiculously memorable as those in 0.  Haven't done too much with the Clan Creator yet, which is kind of a top-down real-time strategy game where you try to defend your construction equipment against enemies, though the victory theme is kinda catchy.
