Thanks.

I think I will join you in the Patch.

I saw the video about the set up and it seems very straight forward.

I will of course back up my characters before start.

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.

Yeah...it took me three or four times to get the hang of taking him out.  No real place to hide on that one.  Leviathan on the other hand took me a long time to figure out before I found a spot where I could cheese it.  Of course I was around level 58 when I first tried and that level area is really bad for most characters.

I am officially on UCP.  I did a bunch of runs on Tinder and I scored a Legendary Solidier that was +3 for a bunch of skills.  Moving a long at at nice clip.  I finished Bloodshot damn.  I am just going to chase main quest line.

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.

I never did that temple.  Sounds like a party.

I decided to do enough of TVHM Pirate DLC to get the Sandhawk and Pimp.  I was a bit under level and I rather do that then some other things I could do to level up a bit.

Aside from that nothing much to report.

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.

Looking forward to how you do against a Raid boss.  Has not gone well for me the couple of times I have tried it.

I got a Pimp and a Sandhawk in TVHM.  My surprise is that I only went up 1.5 levels doing all of that.  Which was a disappointment.  I would like to be higher level going into Wildlife preserve.

Sucks that you had some computer issues.

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

I'm much less convinced about the others.

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.

Sweet.  I will have to see how Maya can do against him.  Teramorphous (sp?) was ridiculous.  I am also willing to embrace the idea that I need to suck less at it.

So you started collecting seraph crystals.  I really want to get my hands on a Blockade shield.

Closing in on the end of TVHM with Axton.  I ran the Bunker until I hit lvl 49.  Now I am done with Sawtooth and onto Info Stockade.  Need to get me a Lady Finger to boot.

When running Bunker I was hoping to get a Bitch.  No luck. In Sawtooth I had a Legendary Loot Midget drop one for me.  Niiice.

Well I downed The Guardian mainly using my Bitch.  Moved on to UVHM with my Axton.

Feeling a bit burnt out.  Might take a break.

edit: looks like it took me two weeks to get Axton to UVHM.

Rough beginning to UVHM.  Starting to hit my stride as I picked up the Kerboom Blaster and the unique grenade mod from Boom Boom.

Before that it was a lot of death and a slow slog.  The game rewarded me for my perseverance.

All you D3 fans need to come join me in BL.

Big sale for Borderlands!  Come join the fun.

My Axton is doing a bit better...level 56 or so.  My next big mission is the rescue of Roland.
