Title: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Sssith on September 29, 2018, 12:36:47 PM
I figured I might as well start a dedicated thread...doesn't hurt.

So the technique I out lined for getting a bee works.  Just not as smoothly as you would hope.  The video I saw talked about an empty Orc village.  Nope.  Full, and worse, there is a mini-boss orc there that was four levels above me.  So you start and run as fast as you can to the platform with the two treants.  Turn around and kill the orcs that come up with you.  The mini-boss can't get up there.  Kill the two trees and rinse and repeat.

On my third run I actually got two Bees.  The first one dropped from the expected target.  I decided to try it out on the mini-boss and it the process of killing him another tree spawn and dropped the second bee.

Not sure which is better as the second has a second higher recharge delay.

Either way I am happy.

I am going to try Jackenstien again.  What a pain in the ass that boss is.

Lol.

You mean the character that does not need to aim.  She is fun.

For what it is worth I was finally able to kill Jackenstein.  The Bee was useful but more important was farming for a shield that made me immune to shock.  My killing speed with the Bee is so much better right now.

I had the Bee way back before they nerfed it.

It's been so long I don't remember what it was before, but I remember it was stupidly OP.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Sssith on September 30, 2018, 05:08:42 PM
I am back to questing.  I would say that the Bee is not OP right now.  It makes the fights doable at this point.

I am level 71 heading into Wildlife Expo.  I am going to run Loot Midgets when I get there.  Also hoping to farm some Tubbies.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Pixie on September 30, 2018, 05:52:38 PM
Yeah, they nerfed the crap out of it. I think I tossed mine afterward, but I don't remember.

Well I picked up a Lyuda during general questing which was nice.  The Pimpernel works better for my character.  Probably going to have to farm for ones that are my level though.

I have officially hit level 72 so now it is mainly about equipment upgrades.  I would like to finish UVHM with my Siren.  I am in the Wilderness Preserves now.

Post by: Sssith on October 01, 2018, 08:50:52 PM
Well I started running Wildlife.  Did two runs, and each run takes me a bit of time at this point.  That said I had some pretty good luck.  I had three Tubbies which netted me Cat Com and the Binder Com.  These are Maya's Unique COMs.  I already have the Legendary Com which is the best of my build.  Also have scored a ton of Ancient Relics see below for the one that I am using.  I am really hoping to find a Bone of the Ancient Corrosive.  As that amps my corrosive damage which Sirens do a ton of and it reduces my action cooldown.  I found a Bone but it was for fire.  I also found my first pearl, see below.

https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/948462308427672890/5CA5DC9AC7071086DD70A418283A5EA16D746F11/

Need to find out if that Pearl is any good.  Somehow I doubt it.

Also i am going back to Pirate DLC to get more Pimps.  The one that I am using is 12 levels old.  In the name of full disclosure I am going to re-enable the quest that rewards it using a program called Gib (I think).  There is no way in hell I have the time to reset all my progress just to get one weapon.  I would rather not but the weapon I need is not a regular drop.

OMG U D1RTTY H4XX000r!!

If they have a RNG thing connected to you needing to replay the bloody game if you miss out, thats shit.  Especially if that RNG thing is something people will desire vs you get something and it doesn't matter what you get or miss out

but still, lets ban sssith.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Darkness on October 02, 2018, 03:17:03 AM
Given how good the Pimpernel and Sandhawk are, I don't think it necessarily terrible that you need to replay the game to get a fresh reward. However, life is short and replaying the game isn't the sort of farming which appeals to me.

So for combating RNG on the Pimp and other quest rewards, just do a soft reset.

1) Save before you hand the quest in.
2) Back-up that character save.
3) Load the game and hand the quest in, get the item.
4) Transfer the item to a mule.
5) Quit the game.
6) Copy your back-up save back in.
7) Repeat until you're satisfied with the item.

I've started working through Tiny Tina's DLC just to get the key farms ready for when I hit level 72. I'm slowly working my way to the point in the DLC where  I can farm the magic missile grenade mod and I have the Bee farm already opened up. I might try for a bee when I hit level 63, just to speed levelling up a bit.

Clearing my way to the final two treants on the other side of the Orc camp, I encountered The Duke of Ork, who proceeded to give me a kicking. His level was obscenely high compared to mine, which probably explains why I couldn't hurt him. Will have to take a screenie if I encounter him again.

Another thing that struck me is that Tiny Tina's DLC is really, REALLY, generous with ammo chests. Which is handy because my Lyuda's go through a lot of ammo.

For Zero is the Lyuda better than the Pimp?

The Pimp and Sandhawk are amazing for Maya.  But I have a lot of time put into getting my Maya where she is at.  Really don't have time to waste doing that much of the game again.  I might give your method a try.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Darkness on October 02, 2018, 06:06:08 PM
For Zero is the Lyuda better than the Pimp?

Generally the Pimp is better. It has eight unlisted secondary projectiles so the bore damage potential is huge.
Advantages of the Lyuda are that its easier to farm for and I think has a faster rate of fire.

I've now found two pearls, both of them are Beatcats.  And yes they do suck.

Farming the preserve has been very profitable.  At this point I'm looking bone of the ancient corrosive and it hasn't dropped.  Just about every other ancient relic has.

Once it does I'll move on.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Sssith on October 02, 2018, 10:42:35 PM
Well I got my Bone of the Ancients.  Now I need to figure out where to stash all these relics.

Well I got my Bone of the Ancients.  Now I need to figure out where to stash all these relics.

Grats! Relic mule I guess. Shame there is no quick way to create mules in BL2. It is a little bit of a hike to Sanctuary to get to Claptraps item transfer.

I managed to get through the Mines of Avarice last night. After an initial tricky start with the Orcs, who I do not like, the rest of the level was a doddle. Even the Badass Iron Golem's seemed to drop pretty swiftly. The Reruc assault rifle was a big help and I wouldn't mind a higher lvl one of those now.

I have an Axton and Sav in progress to Sanctuary.  Sav just killed flint.  When I killed boom boom I got the unique grenade mod called Bonus Package.  Thank goodness as killing Flint at that level is actually hard. 

Need to twink some gear off.

Who knows if he is even gaming these days.  Anyone in contact with him?

Far as I remember he never really was a member here.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Darkness on October 05, 2018, 03:56:27 AM
He's on Facebook but, he's busy with lots of amazing RL stuff rather than gaming. D-Girl still plays BL2 from time to time.

I did Gettle and Mobbly farming last night as I hit level 64 and my Lyuda's + Reruc were getting underlevelled. I had a few lvl 65 Lyuda's and Reruc's drop and in the course of trying to get lvl 64 items I reached lvl 65, so I stopped at that point. Getting a lvl 64 Reruc drop on the run where I dinged 65.

I've banked all the weapons, as I figure they'll be useful to Salvador, Axton and maybe Kreig at some point. Salvador dual wielding them is going to be a lot of lead flying around.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Sssith on October 05, 2018, 09:45:03 AM
So I just about have Axton to Sanctuary.  Between him and Sal I think I felt more comfortable with Axton.  I probably haven't figured out Gunzerking yet.

I have to say that I miss Maya's Phaselock.  You have so much more control of the action with it.  I think it also made me a bit lazy with aiming.

Have only just started with Maya but, having obtained her phaselock it does strike me as one of the more powerful abilities, especially at the start of the game.

Being charged down by a Badass Psycho? Not anymore!
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Sssith on October 07, 2018, 12:10:19 AM
So I just finished getting one of each character to Sanctuary.  Of them all I really didn't get Salvador and gunzerking. Krieg seems like a lot of fun, though it is tough to see what is going on when you do the action skill.

Muled all the stuff off of Maya and then finished Bloodwing off.

On the way I got this from some random robot. 

https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/945085057574757189/8C7E837446D93E7F864909AE8D7EB4EE3773D035/

Now to move on to finishing the story with Maya.

Oh...and for what it is worth the Bone of the Ancients was absolutely worth the time to farm.

Have only just started with Maya but, having obtained her phaselock it does strike me as one of the more powerful abilities, especially at the start of the game.

Just wait until you get converge and cloud kill.

Salvador with 2 good guns and long gunzerking is good, I can tell you that.  I did the game with Krieg, for a while I did that skill where there is a chance you put your axe into your own head .. however other skills are better.  I still miss Brick.

When the machine guns, shotguns and rocketlaunchers aren't doing enough damage, put them away and just start punching things and do BETTER damage :D  what more is there to understand lol.   Its just so stupid it becomes fun.

going back to a serious character after was hard.

Melee Zero, Melee Krieg are both good fun, albeit somewhat challenging.

Post by: Sssith on October 08, 2018, 09:54:36 AM
I was doing Dust runs.  Trying to pickup a Hammerbuster.  I would start with Bug Gulch, hoping for some tubbies.  I moved  on to see if the Black Queen spawned.  Kill the two idiots by the church.  Jump down and go to McNally for the Hammerbuster.

Sadly no Hammerbuster.  I did get a Veruc from one of the idiots by the church.  Black Queen spawned a couple times but she did not drop the bazooka that I was looking for.  I got three tubbies and the best drop from them was a Legendary Ninja.

Then I moved on a cleared out Lynchwood, including putting the Sheriff down while using a pistol.  YEEEEHAW!  That whole area is a tough fight at level 72 but my build held up just fine.

I think I will go back to running McNally.  I think this time I just kill him and nothing else. I really want the Hammerbuster, it works as a poor man's Bekah.

I played Gaige the first time through.  I wish I still had that character.  She is a fun character but very weird.  Not sure how the lack of aiming would work in later difficulties.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Darkness on October 09, 2018, 04:42:22 AM
I like the Veruc. Although it doesn't spawn with an elemental effect, it spews out a lot of lead and against large foes with multiple hitboxes it can do a lot of damage. It became my back-up weapon of choice in the Lair of Infinite bloody skeletons.

I got a Bee! I forgot to mention that. It dropped as a level 66 item, so I didn't get a chance to use it in the Lair. I dinged 66 just as I left the Lair, so I tested it with my lvl 65 Lyuda on Sir Tinder Snowflake. FASTEST. RUN. YET! I don't think I got through half my Lyuda's magazine before he dropped.

I decided to have a bit of a play with Salvadore in normal difficulty and see if it was worth doing Tinder Snowflake with him. Went into the DLC with him at lvl 15 (having just rescued Roland) and cleared through. Easily done and Snowflake was an easy enough kill (although I fried myself with my own grenades on the first attempt), made easier with the nice blue fire assault rifle I got as a drop. Although it isn't worth running him for drops (at that level both Tinder and the train provide mostly green stuff) it is a good source of XP and I'm tempted to powerlevel Salvadore that way, then speed run through the rest of Normal diff. Rinse repeat with TVHM.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Sssith on October 09, 2018, 09:12:16 AM
Congrats on the bee.  It has made life a bit easier for me so I am sure you will enjoy.  I would love to get the blockade and one other shield but both require crystals.  So I will start trying to get those.

As for power leveling I am all for it.  I would love to get my characters into UVHM as quickly as possible.  Get them up level to 50 and then speed run through the two earlier modes.

At this point I have gotten my Hammerbuster and I am cleaning up some quests before I push on to finish the game with her.  At that point I might checkout leveling in OP.  Not sure.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Sssith on October 10, 2018, 09:49:22 AM
Using only my hammer buster I went into Opportunity and lay waste to everything.  I was surprised by how effective that gun was.  I did die twice but more from my own carelessness.  I did the statue quest first which is a stupid idea because it drags you across the map.  At one point I can into Jack's body double and all his support so I was basically fighting two battles.  The other was just being stupid by running into an area that spawned stuff all around me, and I almost got out of that one.  Aside from that the hammer buster mopped up the crowd.  Part of it is that robots are easy to hit the critical spots, but the main part is that the gun just hits hard.  It is also super efficient with bullets.

Also went into normal mode and finished a bunch of achievements that were lacking.   Now in the main game the only ones left are blocked by multiplayer and the gunzerking and zero ones.

Lastly in Opportunity I ran into what looks like the corpse of Bloodwing.  WTF is it doing there?

Post by: Sssith on October 10, 2018, 07:09:29 PM
Yeah...I have heard about that.  They are changing the skills around to make it work.

I can only imagine that they are doing this as part of their ramp up for BL3.  At this point I am much more hopeful for BL3 than D4.  There have been several reports that BL3 is in the localization process and that it will come out some time next year.

Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Sssith on October 12, 2018, 10:49:50 AM
So I did two things over the last couple of play throughs.  The first is that I farmed a bunch of Hammer Busters.  My goal was to find a Boss with a Jakob grip.  Mission failure.  I did learn that the Horse prefix is actually pretty damn good and I would argue the second best behind the Boss.  Horse gives you the extendened magazine and it goes from 13 to 25 (or something close to that).  That might not sound great but it is actually amazing.  With horse you are able to keep firing and generally clear what ever fight you are in before you can reload at your own pace.  Without it you are going to need to reload during the fight.  Huge difference.  I never did get a Jakobs grip and the one time I got the Boss prefix it was under leveled. 

So these are the variables for the weapon

That is a lot of variables when hunting for a perfect weapon.  In the case of the Hammer Buster I was looking for Jakob grip, Boss (damage) prefix, level to match your current lever (72), Dahl stock, and I don't care about the sights.

The second thing I did was go to the caustic cavern.  I waited until I had the treasure map so I would only have to do this once.  Holy shit this was a tough area.  On the way there I decided to run Savage Lee for an Unkempt Harold as mine was under leveled.  Thank god I did as killing level 72 Crystalists was a huge F*ing pain in my ass.  I had maxed out my money at 99 million before going in.  By the time I was done I was down to 80. 

I still want to run the area for the Blockhead shotgun.  Not sure if I will because this would replace the Harold.

I have finished up my Maya lvl 72 UVHM play through.  I gave a try to kill Teramorphous, and that was ridiculous, so I gave up.

I am going to take a small break from her.

I got to the safe house for BL1 and I am completely under leveled.  A bit frustrating, not sure if I will push through.  Need to see how to level up more, as I have done all the missions up to this point.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Sssith on October 15, 2018, 09:44:15 AM
I went back to playing Axton.

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 will probably play Brick more, when I do I will need to level him more.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Darkness on October 17, 2018, 06:30:30 AM
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 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.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Sssith on October 17, 2018, 09:53:37 AM
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.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Darkness on October 18, 2018, 12:40:31 PM
I was under the impression that Salvador and Maya were the strongest for boss killing, with Axton being rather weaker but, not as situationally limited as Zer0.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Sssith on October 18, 2018, 02:00:25 PM
Sal is good for Raid bosses because of the grog 'exploit'.  Not a true exploit but pretty close.  As for Maya I don't think she is good for solo Raiding.  Multiplayer she is great to have along because she can boost the whole party.  It is possible that I suck at her and that I am wrong but the problem with Boss and Maya is that Phase lock does nothing, or very little, to them.  A lot of her skills depend on having phase lock up.  The one thing she can do is use a Sandhawk with a bee shield.  That combined with reaper can take down a boss health quickly.  The problem lies in getting a Sandhawk that is the right level. edit -- There is also a COM that boosts SMG damage that is important to have.

As for Axton I don't have all the info but the trick lines in taking advantage of a tediore weapon reload where you throw the weapon on the boss.  He has very fast reload and with the resulting explosion and buffs he can supposedly tear down a boss quickly.  I guess somewhere the is a site that has a record of the best speeds for boss running and that Axton is at the top of those lists.

The more I hear about you guys grinding and getting the good gear, it makes me compare this to Diablo.  The way I played it was the equivalent of almost a single pass pick up what I find and just be happy with that!  I'm sure the journey would have been easier, if I'd bothered to farm (not easy or fun).
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Sssith on October 18, 2018, 05:07:24 PM
Like D3 (before the expansion) or D2 the real game is UVHM and getting to level 72; and if you really feel tough 0P8.  In order to do that you really do need to farm for gear.  D3, with expansion, makes it really easy to get base line gear.  That said if you want to run the high level GRs you have to go back to grinding for the top end gear.
Title: Re: Borderlands Sanctuary
Post by: Darkness on October 18, 2018, 06:24:05 PM
Unlike D3, with Bl2 you can target where your gear comes from and that is much more satisfying. I'm doing this area/mob/boss for this item.

Went to Opportunity and completed "The man would be Jack" quest, leaving the sidequests for later when I hit lvl 72. I died a lot in Opportunity, there are so many ambushes and its easy to get surrounded by enemies very quickly. I like the design of the zone and its atmosphere so it doesn't annoy me as much as Sawtooth Cauldron does.

After that I cleared the Gobbler DLC, which was surprisingly easy and I had a lot of successful fight for your life returns. The Gobbler was really, really easy to kill but, didn't drop any interesting loot.  By far the hardest part of the DLC are the Grandma Flexington quests, which are a painfully realistic simulation of listening to an elderly relative go on and on and on and on. It did get me to level 67.

I then decided to farm for some higher lvl Lyuda's but, they just weren't dropping. I got a few really nice Veruc upgrades (including elemental ones, which are something I've not seen before) but, I didn't get a Lyuda drop until I was ready to pack in for the night and had nearly gained lvl 68 in the process. It was a nice drop though, corrosive damage as well, which is presently lacking from my Lyuda arsenal. One thing I've noticed doing these runs is, thanks to my gear, they are going so much faster. In some cases as fast as a couple of minutes and sometimes I'll have killed Mobly or Gettle without realising it until after the other one was dead. Which is pretty cool and has the game feeling more like it appears in videos of UVHM players just annihilating everything in their path.

I am giving serious consideration to installing the community path, just for all the gameplay improvements and fixes.

That does seem like some nice improvements.  Though the pimpernel and sandhawk were not given a boss run.

That is tempting.

My Axton is level 22 and only doing the mainline quests.  Need to figure out a good way to get some levels as I am at the same level as my quests.  My list of uncompleted quests is a mile long right now.
