I have such mixed feelings about this game. Loved the first one to death. Haven't played Pre.
>farm my ass off for weeks
>Have awesome orange gear as level 50
>got GOTYE though so currently at 59
>just bought the Vault Hunter Upgrade 2
>played all the Tiny Tina dlc and got a segment and a half of an xp bar
>made the mistake of Resetting my UVHM playthrough "to start fresh" and get more xp easily
>enemies at level 58~62 completely shrug off my attacks from all my orange 50 gear
>break my shield in 2 bullets
>2 clips and they still have a shield
>have died 9 times in 15 minutes
>not even at Flynt yet
Most retarded thing I've done this year so far. Why is this game like this? When I played BL1 I had one white rifle that I used from level 25 up until 49, and the only reason I exchanged it was because I found the exact same thing but scaled to my level, and I took the 49 one through all the DLC and was successful. RIP Atlas.
Anyone else have moments like this in other games? Where you do something and then immediately regret it?
I should mention, it was also because I absolutely refused to exchange it for something that wasn't another Atlas rifle, and I didn't find one until 49. It was a lot of me just being stubborn.
In UHVM you have to update your gear quite frequently, this is because the game uses exponential scaling instead of linear like BL1 had. The higher you get in levels the bigger the difference in guns stats each level.
Depending on your class/build there are some guns that are pretty easy to get. Farming the Bar Room Brawl for tokens is a good way to get exp and Unkempt Harolds. Knuckledragger is good to farm every few levels for a Hornet. Stuff like that. For leveling you will probably have to grind bosses or Bar Room Brawl. My favorite method is finishing the Clan War quest in the Dust then using the Lynchwood exit back to the Dust and just farming that boss over and over since you will always spawn right next to him.
Also, slag everything in UHVM.
>tfw the Tiny Tina dlc is the only one you've played
Which one is the bar room brawl in? I'm assuming not in Hammerlocke's but it sounds like it could go to Torgue or Captain Scarlet's.
Yeah, Torgues. There is a currency in that DLC called Torgue Tokens, you get them from doing repeatable missions like the Brawl, and from doing the DLC's storyline. You can then use them at special Torgue vending machines that only stock their guns, and the weapon of the day will always be a legendary.
That's only one option though, if you don't have the Torgue DLC it's no big deal.
I just picked up the GOTYE a few days ago after buying borderlands 2 through the xbox store during black Friday sale, (actually just returned the GOTYE back to gamestop after I downloaded all the dlcs)
Did my first playthrough as Zero and thought it was so a fun change of pace playing a class at range instead of the melee/tank class. After I finished TVHM with Zero, I started a new game as Salvador and HOLY SHIT is gunzerker some of the most fun i've had in any game in a long time.
Went with a pistol build on him dual-wielding slagged rubi in my left hand and DP unkempt Harold in my right and everything just melts. I've been running around with no shield most of my playing time just constantly healing myself. Just started UVHM on him after finishing all the dlcs and there have been some parts that were tough early on but i'm in a groove now and just downed Bloodwing (fuck Rabid animals) and I'm having a lot of fun with the game.
What class are you playing as? Pistol build with salvador has been making quick work on UVHM. I can't even go back to playing Zero because gunzerker is just so damn fun.
>mfw I downed all the Invincible bosses solo with Salvador
I'm using the Commando, unfortunately. It was a nostalgia thing because I had played Roland in BL1 (before I knew he was shit, but the save got deleted anyways) so I picked Axton because he was familiar. I boosted a Siren and a Psycho up to 50 before I got DLC but I'd have to play the main story twice with them both before I could do anything worthwhile. It's a bad feel.
I want to do this so badly but I feel like Zero has a much more strict item set than all the other characters. Every build I see has the same couple of guns and relics. I see more variety in his grenade mods from builds than I see in guns. Which I mean, if it ain't broke don't fix it, but I like variety.
Which character is best for killing the Tiny Tina DLC dragons, solo?
>much more strict item set than all the other characters
This is true, especially for Critical Ascension Zero since you can only use snipers. And melee Zero only has a few options too. But what he lacks in variety he more than makes up for in fun playstyle.
>Which character is best for killing the Tiny Tina DLC dragons, solo?
Zero and Sal can both do it pretty well. Gaige too if you prestack Anarchy. Everyone else has a fairly hard time.
Don't be, I have it on PC as well but I'm playing on PS3 to humor my brother and good friend, who both just got into the game, but who also both lack PCs. I'm very satisfied with my progress on my PC version.
Looks like I'm just gonna have to suck it up and build up a Zero then. Or grind/trade some nice gear for my Maya, since I watched my friend solo them with her, while playing split screen to boost a backpack character. Not a big fan of Salvador.
I like interacting with humans. Besides, my two best characters got deleted from my first save due to mods. Not a huge fan anyways.
it's an MMO tactic. Makes for a better skinner box if the reward is proportional to the time put in, so it'll have to be exponential.
The problem is, and I don't know how they missed this, borderlands is not a goddamn MMO.
Dont bother farming til OP8, you need an on level sandhawk/bee and DPUH. at OP5 farm for new shit then that should carry you through digistruct. OP levels made the game extremely broken where only 20% of the guns games are fukin useful. OH AND BTW... if you dont have a grog nozzle, then id understand how you would get frusterated at this shit... but always have that mission item in your inventory (dont hand in quest) and always use chain lightning as your grenade (regen + wide hitbox) for passive healing whenever you get hit.
I got the game on steam for cheap cheap. Never finished the main game because I got bored.
>just hit 40
>found this in a vending machine (it's actually lvl 40, looks 33 because of a bug)
>has ammo regen
>have ammo regen on my class mod too
>back at full ammo by the time I finish reloading
And then BL2 went and got rid of almost all ammo regen. Dayum shame.
Ammo is abundant in all borderlands, it's a useless stat. Plus I like running out of ammo sometimes so I can get a chance of other weapons even if they do slightly less damage.
