IMO beginning of UVHM is the toughest part of the game.  Getting past Flint is the first major gate to becoming effective as that opens areas to farm.  You might try heading to Mercenary Day to kill the phat snowman.  The train is a great way to improve your equipment.

I got Axton into Sanctuary, and opened up the farms for Savage Lee and Boll. I have a level 49 DPUH that I saved from Maya, but I could really use a Fastball grenade from Boll.

I also loaded up Maya in TVHM to try and farm a Sham shield from Bunker, but I'm not having any luck yet. The goal with that will be to get a Sham and pair it with Norfleet from the VIP program on my Gaige to blast the shit out of stuff and progress her a bit. Maybe I'll get lucky tonight!

...and then find a Fastball!

If I was still playing BL2 I would want a Norfleet from the VIP program also.  At this point I am just gearing up for BL3.  I have two builds planned out, though I imagine reality will come calling when I see how they actually play.   The point being that Norfleet is, by all accounts, lol-tastic.

So, I shelved Axton and brought Gaige back out. I am playing more defensively with her right now - using a Fibber and Bee combo and shooting from more mid-range distance or around corners and it's working really well. Then, as my stacks add up, I get more aggressive and use a DPUH to wreck up closer.

I'm level 59 right now, and progressing nicely. I met a kind person on Discord who gave/duped a level 63 Sham for me, so I'm just trying to get to that and then I'll go farm Pyro Pete's bar for exp.

I also just bought a new copy of Tales From the Borderlands on eBay that arrived this morning, so I'm going to try and get through that before BL3 launches to get the backstory from that game. Should be a busy week!

Tales is an excellent game.  I played it a long while ago but this summer I found a youtube channel that had a full play through.  So I watched that to get back up to date.

Really good idea about Gaige with a Fibber.

Less than two weeks.

I read somewhere that a lower level Fibber could still be effective in UVHM as long as you have a Bee that's close to being on-level. I'm level 59 using a 49 slag Fibber and it's still doing work with my 57 Bee shield.

I'm impressed.

There are a couple different types of Fibbers, if I remember correctly.  I assume you are using the ricochet version.  I have heard that Gaige and that type of fibber can hit things you can't even see.  Pretty loltastic.

Yeah, I have one that ricochets. I aim at the ground, or a wall, or any solid object that'll bounce the bullets. It's fantastic! And since mine has slag on it, I don't even need to swap weapons - the Bee boosts the damage of each pellet (8 or 9 pellets) and it's plenty to kill enemies quickly. It hasn't been good on bosses - Tinder Snowflake and Uranus needed my DPUH to kill them. I'm 1 level away from getting a Toothpick that I got on Maya so that'll help destroy the snowman to farm him for a bit.

I finished Borderlands 1 enhanced last night.  I vaguley remembered what I did 8 yeas ago and mostly stood behind some cover popping off shots, then got bored, ran in and just punched it.  Did the twice and finished off the boss!  Got to get the quest reward then onto the DLC and their various grinds.

Nice.  You are not alone in liking BL1 more than 2.  The official forums still have plenty of people who post there.  The only character that I did not play through was Roland.

I'm still playing this game a lot and really enjoying it.  I have 3 characters...65 Zero, 51 Gaige, 46 Maya. Currently getting close to the end of TVHM with Maya.  I want to get all 6 characters through TVHM eventually.  I reread this entire thread last night.  It makes so much more sense now, what you all were talking about, as I read it with the experience of playing the game.  Lots of good info in here, so thanks to everyone who posted for that.

I think I will get BL3 when it comes out on Steam next year.
