Elite mode, merged subclasses option. never had so much fun with a Blademaster before! if only surges were not broken...
//edit: actually, Marksman became a lot more fun too!
cleared my first Ancient Blood today, got two copies of Sledge's Hammer unique shotguns. now i'm enjoying my temporary easymode while i can
