I generally don't do side missions until I have to for gaining levels.  That said the first time through I did everything.

Probably my biggest complaint of the game is having to repeatedly going back over the same area.  I am hoping that is improved in BL3.  You do learn that there is a better order in which to do the quests and that helps.  On the positive side there is a lot of content.

That will help a ton!  With those two items you will be able to take him.  Also look into maximizing Accelerate.  Not a skill to normally maximize but if the Harold is your main weapon it will help a ton.

Sal with Grog is more than a bit broken IMO but that is one of the main ways to kill end bosses and Raid bosses.  Zero is much less broken, but he is crazy powerful when hit boxes overlap.  I wasn't aware that that was the case with Harold.  But with Zero I can basically one shot Bunker, as an example.

So you pounded on Uranus.  *sbnvl*

What you experienced is Maya's biggest weakness.  Major boss fights are her weakness because phase lock doesn't do much to them.   It is a way to apply slag and that is about it.  My fully kitted Maya died three times against him.  Usually, there is a cheese point somewhere you can strike a boss, but I have no clue with Hector.  I took him down by mainly focusing on him and using the minions for FFYL.  Ultimately Maya dominates mob fights but struggles against the big bosses.  I imagine Zero and Sal would have no problem with him.

She is very fun, but a bit gimicky.  She was my first character also.  If you have designs on getting her to the end game understand that the early stages of UVHM are really tough with her.  I never did get her to max level.  She has a skill that if you accidentally reload you don't lose all your stacks.  Instead they slowly start going away, and if you reload again, the bleed off stops.  A good skill to have.  At max stacks she does crazy damage just pointing at the ground.  It is fun.  You want your weapons to have small magazines so you gain stacks quickly, but I am sure you figured that one out already.

I am one achievement away from completing chapter 4 with my Monk.  I have less than 70 bounties left to run to get that achievement.  A bit annoying, but doable.  I have completed my get six characters to level 70.  So I am closing in on wrapping up my D3 play.

Sadly I did not have time for messing around with the sale this time.  Ah well.

Hey Jeff,

Nice to see you joining the fun.  Not sure what direction to give.  Early on in the game it is all about gaining levels and finding better guns.  Certain missions will be easier with different types of guns.  An example of this 'A Damn Fine Rescue' where you are going to want corrosive and electric effect guns.  At this point just have fun and hit me up if you need help, have a question.

I imagine Zero would be really good with the infinity.  Critical Ascension would would work really well.  Nice find with the SMG.  And I am glad you are finding the game fun.

DP HAROLD!  FOR THE WIN!

Wow.  Those weapons last much longer than normal and a DP one even more so I would think.  Never got one.

Not convinced that Infinity is a great Maya weapon.  Because of reaper, she does better with high damage weapons.

Good to hear from you.  POE is fun but I have moved onto Borderlands for my loot fixations.

The orc warlord, I belive his name is Turge?, is always a couple levels higher than you and very tough.  Getting the Bee shield is really lucky and a great weapon to pair with the Harold.  Explicit has to do with accuracy, which is generally a very meh prefix.  Still any Harold is pretty sweet.  Double Penetrating >> Hard > Crammed >> all others.  The problem with Double Penetrating is that it uses double the ammo.  But it has crazy DPS and is highly desired.  Hard is higher damage, and crammed is bigger magazine size.  The rest is who cares.

I would sell the bunny.  It is strong but stupid dangerous.

The bunny...it kills you faster than the enemies.  lol

The hive is not one that I have used much of.

I honestly don't use launchers that often I will sometimes keep one on me for FFYL.  There is a purple one that I like...I think it is called PBFG.  A play off of DOOM.  It is a dumb down Norfleet, which can only be gotten from a Raid Boss.

Harold is pretty great.  Did you get it with a prefix?  To get as a world drop is incredibly lucky.  I once got a Bee as a world drop.  I wish the game had more world drops.

The content will be leveled to your character if you do the new, or any other, dlc.

The fun thing about doing it is the possibility of getting better loot.

As for pushing through to get to the farming areas in UVHM I would say yes.  Remember what I said about Cataclysm.  You will want it for UVHM, as that is the way you will get slag.  Not having to swap weapons for slag is a godsend.  Once you hit level 50 there is no point being in TVHM as you can't level up to 51 in TVHM.  Major XP penalty once you hit 50.

Remember that a great way to get gear in UVHM is Marcus' Mercenary Day DLC.  The loot from the train is always on level.

Tales is an excellent game and worth playing if you are a fan of the Borderlands series.

Catch a Riiiiidddde!

I have been looking at the gem of ease thing.  I guess there is another recipe that removes the level requirement?

I have never been comfortable in an MP game with strangers.  They generally play at a different speed and have different goals.
