This Borderlands 3 Spiritual Driver farming guide will teach players how to acquire the legendary Spiritual Driver mod for Amara in Borderlands 3.

  • Amara’s Spiritual Driver mod increases Amara’s damage while moving

If you’re playing Borderlands 3, you may have heard of the Spiritual Driver class mod, generally considered to be the best mod available for Amara. This guide will tell you all you need to know about what the Spiritual Driver is capable of and where to farm it.

Spiritual Driver Traits

The Borderlands 3 Spiritual Driver mod does two key things. First, whenever you activate your action skill, you put a DoT on yourself. This might seem like a negative thing at first, but when you have a DoT, your Mindfulness stacks build up rapidly.

If you have the Conflux skill you might even DoT yourself twice, doubling the rate the Mindfulness stacks rack up. With max Mindfulness, you’ll be zooming around the battlefield like a rocket, especially considering the Spiritual Driver gives bonus points for Mindfulness.

The second thing the Borderlands 3 Spiritual Driver mod does is it makes your gun damage scale with your movespeed, so the faster you’re moving, the more damage you deal.

The rate of scaling it gives is nuts. If you’re at max Mindfulness, moving fullspeed, you’re getting somewhere in the vicinity of +500% increased damage. Not only that, because of the wonky way that Borderlands 3 calculates damage, it buffs your DoTs in real time.

Borderlands 3 calculates all damage based on your current modifiers, not the modifiers you had when you released the damage. So if you fire a bullet from say, a Cutsman, while standing still, and then start moving before the bullet hits the target, the bullet will get the bonus damage from movespeed.

Similarly, if you apply a DoT and then start moving, the DoT will actually increase in power as long as you’re running around.

Spiritual Driver Location

The Borderlands 3 Spiritual Driver mod for Amara drops off of one of Zer0’s crew challenge targets named Sylestro in the Tazendeer Ruins. It’s not a very large map, and he’s not very hard to find. Keep in mind you need to be on Mayhem 4 for this mod to drop here.

There are actually two targets at this location, Sylestro and Atomic, both of whom are Maliwan Heavies. They’re not terribly hard to kill.

Sylestro is the one who drops the Spiritual Driver. Ideally, you’ll want to find one with +3 Mindfulness, high cooldown reduction and +damage for whatever brand of gun you most commonly use which, for Amara, tends to be Maliwan, Jakobs, or Atlas.

Conclusion – Borderlands 3 Spiritual Driver

The Borderlands 3 Spiritual Driver mod for Amara is considered to be one of the best and most gamebreaking mods available. It enables Amara to output tremendous damage simply by running fast and zipping around the battlefield.

In order to acquire the Borderlands 3 Spiritual Driver mod, you need to farm Sylestro in the Tazendeer ruins. It’s not a terribly difficult farm and if you know where to look, you should be able to acquire the Spiritual Driver relatively quickly.

Just remember that it only drops on Mayhem 4 or above.

Anyway, that about does it for how to get the Spiritual Driver legendary class mod in Borderlands 3.
