few questions for those who know:
1. Earthbreaker foes triple damage to shields... what shields? Shields as in damage reisistances, shields as in the ones granted by the Merge/ Shield flasks, or simply damage to aliens period?
1.5. What would be a good/optimal setup for a F2P Earthbreaker-centric setup?(Perks, backup weapons, armor, bag and VOID)
2. I heard everyone talking about the Bloodseeker(Sword)'s brokenness. I can see that 2 slashes per seconds can get ridiculous on it's own, but what are some setups that can be made to go with it?(AS in non-IAP armor, optimal VOID, backpack, perks, maybe killstreaks and backup weapons for a melee-centric setup)
2.5. Despite said brokenness, I see regualr sue of the Phantom(bowblade). How does the transition work? Does the sword part get increased damage/reduced FR on switch? Since melee buffs do not apply to the sword, do energy or explosion buffs apply? If the sword damage isn't buffed, what makes it worth using? The fact that's a pre-lvl41 sword?
3. On the topic of PVP, what is a good way to get to level 41 as a level 35 player? What would you suggest I buy/use to make that climb to get all my good equipment? In fact, what's a good way to grind in general?
3.5. This is a big one, but what would be a reccomended "sertup" for each general power level (In the case of prestiges)?
4. What would be a good set for farming? OR in my case, farming Heroic MetalCrawler? (my unupgraded Earthbreaker + Collapsar does wonder but still takes a long time)
Thank you, to anyone who answers or even tries to help.
