What previous Vault Hunter is Amara like?

If you've played Lilith in Borderlands or Maya in Borderlands 2, then you might already be considering Amara as your chosen Vault Hunter. If this is true, and you enjoyed playing as the past Sirens, then Amara could be an excellent choice for you.

Two of Amara's Action Skills are very reminiscent of the past Sirens. Phasegrasp, which allows you to grab hold of oncoming enemies, is very similar to Maya's Phaselock, which suspends enemies in a vortex. Amara's Phasecast Action Skill is a more violent version of Lilith's Phasewalk.

Borderlands_5

At a glance, it appears that Amara is just a combined version of the past Sirens, however, the Brawl Skill Tree offers to makes her incredibly deadly in close combat. Include the possibility to inflict a great amount of elemental damage upon your enemies and Amara is shaping up to be the strongest Siren Borderlands has seen yet.
