It is official, March 13th coming to Steam.

New DLC is a bit spoiler-ish.  In that, it is a marriage between Sir Hammerlock and Wainwright Jacobs.  Gaige is back as the wedding planner, which seems odd.  Another DLC to come out in the Summer.

The Gaige thing is strange to me, but whatever. I liked her in BL2 so I'm happy to see her in 3.

The sneak peak of DLC3 and the idea for DLC4 both intrigue me. I think Salvador could be involved in DLC3, which would be cool. I'm excited for the upcoming free content as well!

I saw this last night.  I'm not sure I will get this right away, but it's definitely on the wishlist!

The Moxxie DLC was really good.  I might wait to play until after the next DLC.  They are also they are planning a new Mayhem end game.   Not sure when that is supposed to happen.

DLC2 is coming March 26th, mayhem 2.0 is coming in April, and then the next takedown event is in May.

I wish they would outline their plans for level cap increase.  I was not happy with the last one. DLC 3 is slated for some time in the summer.  That might be the one I wait for.  I do enjoy the game so I know I will be back but it would be so annoying to come back and then shortly later have another bump in level cap.

A big thread in the steam forum was talking about wait for all the dlc. Wait for a big “complete pack”. Wait for said pack to be 75% off so maybe buy in 2022

You can't fault that logic.  Gearbox has made them wait already.  From their POV they might as well wait even longer.  Chances are they know what the 'spoilers' are and other than playing the game as soon as it is available there is not much incentive to buy it at the the higher price.

I got my Zane up to level 50 last night. I've been running a boss fight in the Moxxi DLC that has a ton of adds, and can be reset without having to save and quit. It's kinda boring, but I got a couple nice annointed Lucky 7 pistols which helped. I can now equip my Redistributed SMG that Wotan dropped on my Amara. I still have to get 3 more levels and some gear, but Zane is definitely a powerhouse now!

Have you killed Wotan?

I find that battle very annoying.  I generally do find Raid bosses a bit annoying. I have a Kybs Worth from my fight.  The redistributor is pretty awesome, and arguably the best SMG in the game.  Kybs, Redistributor, and Cutsman generally fight for the top billing.  Why not all three?

Lucky 7 is interesting gun.  Moze and Fl4k can make the most of it if you are willing to futs around and try to get the right roll on it.  I briefly ran with a build based around it.  It was fun once you had the roll annoying to get the roll.  At that point to made out like Gaige praying not to accidentally reload.

I have only killed Wotan with Amara so far. I did also get a corrosive Cutsman from my Scraptrap farming, which was a nice surprise. Once I get to 53, I'll probably head over to Wotan with Zane. I have a level 50 shock Cutsman, so I may need to refarm Borman Nates for a 53 of both shock and corrosive.

BL3 is 50% off on Steam until March 20.  The 3 different tiers are $30/$40/$50 now.

Well that’s some good news at least.

I still think unless you are a suoer fan wait till all main dlc is out. A better sale not far off.

Been playing the shit out of this since Friday.

It's much better than the first 2. At least, mechanically. Lots of fun.

Story/writing/whatever is shit, but I don't really have much in the way of expectations out of Gearbox.

I've been saying...it is fun.  Has its flaws but it is a good time. 

Let me guess.  Moze.
