I'm further than that. According to the wiki he has a 10% chance to spawn after Bright Lights, Flying City is completed, but I don't even think that's true in my game, I've searched his spawn points every time I travel to Sanctuary (dozens of times) and haven't seen him once.
Not much luck from the slot machines, I've spent a ton of money on them and the best I've seen was a single unimpressive blue. I did however get a couple of incredible purple elemental SMGs from tipping Moxxi. I always roll with one fire-elemental SMG and one corrosive-elemental SMG, you can pretty much handle anything in the game with that combo.
Also, it's waaay worth farming the Creepers to get the Minecraft-themed shotgun, it's incredible. It shoots 9 bouncing, fire-elemental blocks in a square pattern. If you hit an enemy with all 9, good night. I'm dreading the day when I outlevel that gun and I really hope you can farm higher leveled versions.
