That would make things more fun.  The runewords were a fun gimmick.

Looking at that list I think I had an Ist drop from the countess.  I know I had an Um drop.  The rest of my good runes came from give-aways.

It seems to me that, for the most part, Axton's skills are well thought out giving you a lot of choices on how to do the build.  There are a couple must haves like bullet storm, sentry and ready, then you get to branch off in different ways.  You can be a jack of all trades and have good survivability, you can be grenade focused, or you can specialize in turrets.  I am kind of digging the versatility.  In Maya, who I think is pretty well designed, you kind of need to go with Ruin in order to do UVHM.  The comparable skill for Axton is Double Up where your turret gets slag.  But with Axton you can ignore that and use your grenades to take care of the slag for you.

At this point I am leaning toward doing a Double Up, Grenade combo build.  Not really sure but I am liking the idea of having a ton of fireball grenades.  All good choices.  I have also heard that by Axton is the top solo Raid Boss Killer.  Has something to do with using the explosion from Tediore reloads.  Haven't fully looked into that as I find the Raid bosses annoying as hell.

I went back to playing Axton.

How're you finding him? I quite enjoy Axton, with turret placement and abilities providing a different tactical approach.

I am going to try to streamline leveling.  The goal is to mainly do just the main quests on first and second play through.  I am going to try to level up by doing certain runs.  The target is fifty by the end of TVHM.  At that point I will settle in for a fuller play through..

I think I managed to complete TVHM at level 49. With Axton the final fight with the Warrior I found to be a bit of a pain due to poor weapon choices on my part. I'm not sure I have an optimal build for UVHM as I'm very focused on turrets and probably need to think more about synergies involving grenade damage.

Thanks Dave for the power level!! Started a Barb on the Americas server, already got the extra tab on the EU server.
It seems more fun to start new toons than just keep playing the old ones. Anyone play on the Asian server?

Yeah, patch 1.13 back in 2010 boosted the rune drop rates by about 2.5x-4x, based on the drop calc numbers.  It's not a huge difference really, since that only brings down the odds of a random monster dropping a Ber rune for example from about 1 in 10 million to 1 in 4.4 millon (depending on the monster obviously), and a Zod went down from 1 in 60 million to 1 in 15 million.

Have the drops been improved.  I forget the rune hierarchy but I think my best was something like an Ist.

Nice finds!  Yeah, RNG is funny sometimes.  Haven't found either Titan's Revenge or Thunderstroke so I can't realistically make a good Javazon.  Still no Harlequin Crest, Skullder's Ire, Oculus, Stormshield, or Tal's Adjudication, so my Sorc gear is somewhat limited.  Oh, but out of the 18 unique amulets I've found, I now have THREE Seraph's Hymns.  I started doing Pindle runs the other night after having gone maybe a month since even thinking about them (mostly doing Baal/Meph/Tunnel runs with my Barb), and the FIRST run he drops Shadow Dancers, the SECOND run he drops Messerschmidt's Reaver (dropped another one about 60 runs later).

I've been doing Countess, Summoner, and Nilithak runs for keys over the past few days.  I did 3 more uber runs and got a barbarian and 2 amazon torches.  I'm hoping I get a paladin torch next.  I also found another IK set armor while doing a random Pit run.  That's my 3rd one of those.  Still no Skulder's Ire, Arreats Face, or Homunculus, among other things.  That's RNG for you.

Oh yeah, almost forgot, I found some more noteworthy runes...1x Pul, 1x Um, 2x Mal, and 1x Sur.  That was my third Sur rune I've found in PlugY.  I used the other 2 to make a Ber.
