Gaige is the 5th out 6 classes in borderlands. She has some nice and funny lines which is too be expected. Her special ability is to summon her pet robot 'Deathtrap' which automatically travels to an enemies and murders them in different ways depending on your upgrades. Deathtrap is useful at the start of the game but as enemies increase in difficulty if he isn't upgraded to the max he doesn't stand much of a chance. The main skill for Gaige is Anarchy which is stacked up either when she reloads an empty magazine or kills an enemy. Each stack of Anarchy increase damage and decreases accuracy (nice for shotguns with a couple bullets.) But be wary if you reload your gun without using the whole magazine you will lose all your anarchy until you unlock the 'Discord' upgrade. I found myself accidentally pressing reload so I would recommend rebinding your reload button to something you wont use when playing borderlands. I really enjoyed playing Giage would recommend - 9/10
First and foremost: Gaige is probably the best written and voice acted character in BL2 that the player can choose from. That said, actually playing as her and thinking about the skilltree ... well there's only one option and that's Anarchy. The other 2 trees feel like you're barely doing anything. Anarchy is super interesting though, a very cool spin on how you usually play FPS titles and instead rewards you for good ol' spray & pray. Deathtrap has a lot of cool abilities, but some simply take way too long for the flying torso to cast. Whether or not the price is worth it is pretty subjective here, there's definitely a TON of work put into her and that left it's mark on the pricetag. As a general rule of thumb, I'd say large story-DLCs before anything else when it comes to the Borderlands franchise, but if you have those and think you could add another lass to the starting roster, well look no further, as the Mechromancer is right here! Also, I still think the Vault Hunter's Relic is a hoax. Seriously.
Playing with the Mechromancer without using Anarchy means you aren't playing with the mechromancer at all. With this skill they made an interesting change in the rule of the game, since with the right skills invested you are totally OP! Deathtrap is awesome, it can be seen as the old Bloodwing for Mordecai. It is my favorite class for now! And I finished the game with Salvador and Maya also.
The Mechromancer is a great class and I highly recommend you get it!!! You can summon a deadly robot called deathtrap to act as a kind of enforcer / distraction to your foes and you can destroy them with electricity AND fire! plus every time you kill a foe in combat or your magazine runs dry forcing you to reload. you loose accuracy BUT you gain damage... once this goes on long enough you will be pretty much blowing the baddies up with one or two shots... if you can hit them.
Gaige The Mechromancer, the 5th new playable character, is a great add-on for Borderlands 2. With this dangerous girl with bad attitude, you will have the chance to try three new skill trees: "Little Big Trouble", which focuses in elemental damage and effects, like burning electrocution, especially effective against shielded enemies; "Ordered Chaos" (a.k.a. Anarchy), which focuses in increasing the damage done by your weapons, incredible effective to any enemy, but the higher the damage level, the accuracy will be affected as well although negatively. And the third skill is "Best Friends Forever", which focuses in her robot friend: Deathtrap, an extremely useful robot who can fight for Gaige with some helpful abilities. The three new skills can be a little challenging to handle and manage for newcomers, so this is most recommendable for fans looking for some new way to play. Although, it's still recommendable for any fan of Borderlands 2. The important thing is to get the balance that works for you. A very enjoyable DLC.
