Axton is pretty fun.  I should finish him up.  Underrated.

I am absolutely rolling with Krieg right now. I am about to hit level 71 and I am using a Diesel Blue Com.  It shreds for melee Krieg.  I just mopped a whole area of the Sawtooth Cauldron with on rage following the next.  It was rather glorious.  Few things in BL as a whole are as fun as Melee/Bloodsplosion when everything clicks.  I have found all sorts of COMs just not the legendary Sickle.  I found a legendary Anarchist.  The game is telling me to go back to Gaige.

Jack. Dead. Head. Pike.

Melee Krieg had the easiest time of UVHM of all my characters. In terms ease for me it goes Krieg > Maya > Zero > Axton > Gaige (no experience with Salvador).  He is now level 74 and I am doing the Fight for Sanctuary DLC.  I will shortly spec into some HellBorn skills, which (when lit on fire), should give me even more damage reduction.  I am not sure how much longer I will play Krieg, but I will at least get him to 80.  Maybe all of the DLCs.  Overall Krieg has been pretty fun, though he is maddening at times.  A bunch of deaths from self damage, few things are as frustrating as when you hit yourself four times in a row.  Toughest enemies for him are Badass constructors, which a close second to fast moving Buzzards, and in third place was Krieg himself, and of course player stupidity (me) might have been his worst enemy.  I am glad I finally played him, I definitely recommend the experience.

Haha, I liked your summary.  Congrats on finishing UVHM with him.  It makes me want to finish up my Krieg.

Just finished the Fight for Sanctuary DLC.  It is an interesting DLC on the home.  It hammers on the Lilith is not a good leader idea, which is somewhat central to the BL3 game.  It also goes heavy into the idea that Corporations, if given the latitude, will f* shit up.  This is a central theme to the whole Borderlands universe. You have to feel a little bit bad for Hector and his men, but Hector is a pretty big ahole in his own right.  It was fun taking him out.

Congrats on finishing it.  Now it's just level to 80 for you I suppose.  Hector is a tough fight.  I never killed him more than once with my characters.  I think the DLC is great because it has some nice items (the 2 grenades come to mind) and a really great boss farm in Uranus.  Uranus is a great for leveling too.

I just finished pounding Uranus (HA!).  I have hit level 80.  Second character to max level.  Technically third as Zero is at 72, but that is not max level any longer.  I am going to farm an on level Explosive Fastball and Harold.  After that I am off to Hammerlocks's DLC to get an on level Rough Rider.  Aside from that I really want a legendary Sickle.

I went back to three horns divide to get a level 80 explosive fastball and harold. On the second run I got my fastball. I took this as a sign that the BL gods were happy with me and that I would soon be done with this farm. Oh foolish mortal. It took forever for Lee to cough up a harold. When he finally coughed up a harold is was 3 levels below mine. WTF. The gods further mocked me by making in a Double Penetrating one. Thirty minutes later an on level Thrusting one drop that did less damage than my level 77 one. Combined with the fact that Krieg shouldn’t use a bladed weapon it was a junk drop. In the end I got one more to drop. This time a level 79 one. Again Double Penetrating. I figured that was good enough. I imagine that a regular 80 wouldn’t beat the damage of a Double Penetrating one. I generally prefer the Hard and Intense prefix but I am not going to complain with the damage. I find this all ironic because before Krieg I have never found a single Double Penetrating Harold. I have now found four.

That is a really nice DPUKH.  Imagine if it had a matching grip.  And yes that is a lot more damage than my current one.
