Amara The Siren levels and abilities in Borderlands 3 Borderlands 3 guide, walkthrough

Amara is one of the characters you get to control in Borderlands 3. This section of the guide contains basic information about this character. You will learn what abilities Amara has at her disposal. In addition, we have prepared a recommended build for Amara in which we put together the best combination of active and passive skills.

Amara - general information

1 - Amara The Siren levels and abilities in Borderlands 3 - Characters levels and abilities - Borderlands 3 Guide
  1. Amara is a siren, and that means she has some kind of magical abilities thanks to which she can effectively attack and weaken opponents.
  2. Specialization of this hero - Siren. Upon starting the game, you can select one of three starting Action Skills. The starting abilities for this class include scaring enemies with astral projections, summoning a giant fist that can imprison the enemy as well as jumping into the air and hitting the ground with tremendous force. In short, two active skills are about dealing direct damage, and the third is about catching someone with the intention of subjecting them to the next attacks.
  3. Starting action Action Skills are not the only ones available to Amara - you can unlock more. They are located in the lower parts of Amara's development trees. Unfortunately, this is due to the need to advance to a sufficiently high level of experience and the issuance of a certain number of points of development. Even if you unlock new actions, only one of them can be ready for activation at any given time.
  4. Amara has one slot to Augment and the ability to inflict more elemental damage. The second position is especially interesting. You can influence what types of damage from the elements will be dealt to opponents through the Action Skill. This is very useful if, for example, you lack weapons in dealing damage from specific items. Unfortunately, the passive abilities of the Element are in different places on different development trees. The recommended build for Amara below will allow you to have them in readiness and constantly change them if necessary.

Amara - recommended build

Our recommended build involves the creation of a character who fights at a short distance and further weakens opponents with injuries from the elements - Amara The Siren levels and abilities in Borderlands 3 - Characters levels and abilities - Borderlands 3 Guide

Our recommended build involves the creation of a character who fights at a short distance and further weakens opponents with injuries from the elements. On the need to implement this plan in life you will need skills with trees Fist of the Elements and Brawl.

In the case of the Fist of the Elements tree your main goal will be to unlock Fist Over Matter, requiring you to invest at least 20 development points. It has two remarkable features that make it powerful. It is worth noting that within the Fist of the Elements tree, there are also other Action Skills available. You will be able to switch between then starting from Phasegrasp, which is available from the beginning of the game.

In the case of the Brawl tree, you will primarily depend on unlocking a variety of useful passive abilities. The ultimate goal is the Blitz skill to buy for 25 development points. It will probably take a long time before you unlock it. However, it is worth pursuing because it guarantees a strong melee attack.

Parallel development of Fist Of The Elements tree will allow you to access two Action Skills Element - Soulfire and Blight Tiger. Each of these abilities becomes available already after spending 5 development points within a given tree. The advantage of having both skills is that you will be able to freely switch between them depending on what damage from the elements you want to deal - burn or corrosive.

Because of the fighting at a shorter distance with this build, shotguns work especially well. This will allow you to make the best use of the bonuses guaranteed by the unlocked passive ability.
