Our first look at how to build out the Borderlands 2 classes starts off with Maya, the Siren. Let's see how her 3 skill trees work.
Let's start off with my least favorite tree, Harmony (the center tree). Here's a link to the build if you want to follow along.
I really don't like the "Scorn" cap on this tree, as you can see at the end of the video, it's very easy to hit yourself with it. Some of the other skills like the "Res" game changer in the middle of the tree, are only useful in co-op, so you'd likely want to re-spec if you ever played solo and put that point to better use somewhere else in the tree. In a full team of 4, and with a good Heavenly Nurse class mod, this build can greatly improve the survivability of everyone in the group. In fact, you should probably move the 5 points in recompense into Elated if you have 3 or more players as it will be less about your survival and more about the health of the group as a whole.Read full story...

How to score the "Tribute to a Vault Hunter" achievement and get some cool loot in the process.
Michael Mamaril was a huge Borderlands fan who passed away before BL2 was released. The guys at Gearbox have immortalized him in game, you can get an achievement for finding him, and better yet, he'll give you a free gun of blue (or better) quality every time you see him.
On the consoles, he shows up 100% of the time before the story mission "Rising Action" and only about 10% of the time after that mission starts. On PC it is apparently 10% all the time.
Here's video of us finding him after "Rising Action" at Scooter's (this contains a small story spoiler if you haven't played that mission yet):
And again, this time at Moxxi's:
When he does spawn, he will randomly be in one of a handful of locations, here's where you can find him.
- Near the newsstand in the center of town
- In an alley down the street from the front entrance to Moxxi's
- Inside Moxxi's, near the bar
- Inside Moxxi's, near the piano
- In Marcus' weapons shop
- Near Claptrap's locker up some steps
- Inside Scooter's garage, under the stairs
- Inside Crimson Raider headquarters next to the stairs
- Inside Zed's clinic
- To the left of the door to Crazy Earl's Black Market
He's easily identifiable from both the guns strapped to his back and the fact that his name shows over his head instead of "sanctuary citizen".
Once you've got an item from him, he won't give you another until you either save and reload or leave town and come back. It's a great way to get some mid-level gear before the "Rising Action" mission, where the action really picks up and those guns will come in handy.

Looks like you'll be able to use Catwoman at least part of the time in this game. Co-op anyone? -UPDATED- official source for trailer.
Note: This video isn't up on the official youtube page yet, so here's some jimmy ass rip of the gamespot version. Enjoy it while it's up. I'll post the official if Rocksteady/Warner ever get around to updating their youtube page.
