The antagonist shielf is also an excellent purchase.

Yup, Hyperius with Zer0 is completely doable. I won't pretend I've perfected a technique yet but, once that godb0re hits, it is all over very quickly and you don't need all four bots up to achieve it.

I feel reasonably confident that Hyperius and Pete will be doable solo.

I'm much less convinced about the others.

Despite parts of my PC exploding earlier in the evening, I finished the main story of the Captain Scarlet DLC. The Leviathan fight took me ages, mostly because I didn't read any guides beforehand and was shooting it in the mouth rather than any of its weakspots. Eventually sussed out what I had to do and then it went quickly. I died to a sandworm after the boss was dead which was.....annoying.

Zero loot from the treasure room, which is an unnecessarily annoying bit of platforming.

Still I've unlocked Hyperius now and can have a go at b0reing him to death.

Chasing the main questline is the optimal route through NVHM and TVHM, as they're necessary to crack on to UVHM. Aside from using Tinder Snowflake as a levelling tool, there's no reason to do the DLC content until UHVM. Then its a case of using that content for variety.

I tried Murderlin's Temple yesterday.

It's horrible.

If time allows I'm going to finish the Captain Scarlet DLC and have a try at god-b0reing Hyperious to death.

After quite a few disastrous attempts, I worked out how to solo Son of Crawmerax.  He didn't drop anything nice and nor did his chests but, at least I know its doable. Loot midgets are far more profitable for far less effort.

You need to activate the CP each time you boot up the game. I'm using BCLMM to install the patches (makes it really easy) and each time I log in I just open the game console and type: exec patch.txt

As far as I can tell, you can switch freely between regular BL2 and the CP version. I know I have done when I've booted the game and forget to enter the patch command.

In terms of gameplay, it doesn't obviously change anything. It doesn't start raining items at you or anything and I've mostly only played Zer0 so far. I do find the changes to Zer0 make him a little more forgiving to play, which is nice. Axton has the most changes so may fiddle around with him tonight.

I've mainly be legendary midget farming (using the mod "No More Orders" as I'd already completed the Doctors Orders quest with Zer0). Had a couple of Pearls drop so far (the Stormfront sniper which is pretty cool and a better Tunguska than the one I already had) plus a few legendaries, including another Bee Shield. I need to start levelling my other characters so they can store more stuff.

The Midget farming goes pretty smoothly, mainly thanks to my arsenal of Pimpernels in each elemental flavour. Very satisfying getting the B0re effect on a Hyperion bot as its spawning in and having it explode before its even finished transforming into combat mode.

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

Apparently they have a 33% chance of dropping from H3RL

Though the pimpernel and sandhawk were not given a boss run.

They're insanely good weapons for quest rewards so having them on a boss run seems a trifle excessive when you can farm them repeatedly by backing up your save.

I am enjoying the improved Tunguska Pearlescent I got whilst farming Tinder to lvl 72.

Ding lvl 72!

Farmed my lvl 72 Lyudas. Now farming Bee. Then onto the Pimpernel and Sandhawk!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Mordecai was my main BL1 character so I was not happy with what happened to Bloodwing.

I doubt it will be an MMO. They can't afford to cannibalize WoW subs. I doubt it's going to be a traditional Diablo game either. Looking at HS, HoTS and Overwatch they are all riddled with monetization stuff.  I'll guess an episodic game or something more like D3 with seasons that have enough new content each time they can charge for access to each one.  My longshot guess, Diablo battle royale. Though I think an overwatch engine based battle royale is more likely.

I also doubt it will be an MMO, although not because it is likely to have any impact on WoW. Money to Blizzard is still money to Blizzard and they're looking to draw people back through the power of nostalgia to the shitshow that is "WoW Classic."

D4 is unlikely as well, given the lack of industry noises about that and the recent launch on the Nintendo switch. More likely another expansion or series of monetised episodic content for players. I suspect the overhead of running D3 is low for Blizzard, as it is for D2 and they probably have a model for adding optional content (at a cost) which won't disrupt the existing userbase and make the fans feel compelled they have to buy it in order to get involved.
