ANOINTMENT ADJUSTMENTS

Gearbox Software added a lot of cool stuff with the June 24, 2021, update. We received crossplay, level cap increase, permanent seasonal events, and a lot of tweaks. One of those adjustments is to the anointments. With the introduction of the final level cap increase, Gearbox Software thought this was the best time to make changes to the current Anointment meta. Because of the level cap increase, you will already be farming for new gear, therefore, this meta change is not such an impact on your gear.

Gearbox Software wants to focus on character-specific anoints. Creating a specific build instead of relying on an anoints that works well in all situations. Therefore you will see a reduction in some of the generic anoints that work well on everything and a buff on the character-specific anoints.

We will be monitoring community feedback very closely as we anticipate there will be a lot of discussion surrounding this topic. We will make further adjustments to these changes as deemed necessary.
