If you want Elemental then you want Maya. You can build her like I did in going 1/2 down the healing tree, then switching over to the elemental tree.

Go down the healing tree until you hit level 20 (5 in Sweet Release, 5 in Restoration, 1 for Res, 4 in Elated) then go down the elemental tree until you hit 46 (5 in Flicker, 5 in Helios, 1 for Acid Cloud, 4 in Backdraft, 5 in Reaper, 5 in Blight Phoenix, 1 for Ruin) then put the last 4 points in Sustenence back in the healing tree.

Pistols and repeaters are one gun class now, basically the repeaters are all pistols by Jakobs, everything else is pistols. Each gun maker has their own quirk now (Dahl burst fire when ADS, Torque are all explosive rounds, Maliwan are all elemental, Jakobs are all repeaters, Hyperion become more accurate the more times you fire, Tediore guns are thrown and explode when you reload as a new one teleports into your hand, Bandit have the largest ammo clips, etc.) Maya works best with elemental pistols, SMG's, snipers, and then shotguns for when you get surrounded or to fight the crystalisk enemies.

As a Lilith player in Borderlands 1, I'd definitely recommend Maya to start. (Though if you were primarily into Lilith for the stealth/sneak aspect of Phasewalk, Zer0 might be a better choice.)

Though I think the classes are a lot better balanced in 2 honestly. In 1 I sincerely felt like Siren was way OP compared to the others, but in 2 everyone has a lot to offer. Gaige is really great if you're going to be playing offline because the robot is almost like having another player.

Brother Daz has me thinking about Zero. Maya might be good, but idk if i really want to use the same type of character as i did the first game. Guess ill have to think about it more.

Yeah im planning on doing it solo. Not sure i want to spend 10 dollars on Gaige though. But she does look cool. But i read someone say she can be OP early but end up weaker at higher levels. I dont know.

Once i use the shift keys, is that it? I cant use them for another character too?

They keys are input in the menu, and it's shared amongst all your characters. You have a single pool of golden keys. When you use one, the chest gives you stuff the same level as your current character. There's also a locker in the main town that lets you store 4 items that your other characters can access, so you can pass down gear.

Yeah I would try to hold off using keys until you're near the end of playthrough 1 at the earliest.

I wouldn't worry overmuch about running out of keys. There have been like 100+ codes so far; just follow the thread so you don't miss them while they're valid. Whenever you feel like your inventory is getting stagnant and you haven't found any good weapons for a few levels, spend a couple of keys.

Yea, I agree with this. A good weapon for the 10s, and another for the 20s gets you through most of the first playthrough.

I started an assassin character and played online co op with my son. I got him to level 18 and didnt spend any skill points. I started a single player game with that character, however even though he was level 18, I didnt have any points to spend. Is this character bugged or when can I spend skill points? Do I need to get to lvl 19 in single player to see the available points show up (should be quite a few unused points). Or do I need to get him to 19 online co op and spend all of the points there? I played a comando to mid 20's and a gunzerker to 28 and wanted to play with Zero, just didn't feel like grinding thru the early missions at low lvl again.

Not sure I'm understanding correctly, but here's some thoughts:

- If you started a new game, you created a NEW assassin in the process (lvl 1) and shouldn't have any skill points.

- If you continued your existing game, everything about that character should be identical to how you left it the last time you used it. Those skill points should still be there. Whether you use(d) it in a solo or co-op world has no bearing, AFAIK.

Hope that helps.

Yeah, it sounds like you may have just created a second Assassin without realizing. You can check by pressing Y on the title screen and seeing if your level 19 Assassin is there, and selected.

I selected the lvl 18 assassin and continued the game. He is early in the game with 0 skill points allocated and none unspent. The early quests yeild very little experience for me to get a level on. We are going to try to respec to see if that helps or power level him to 19 to see if that opens it up.

Sounds like a bug then. Though like you said, I would definitely try getting him to the next level and see if all of the missing skill points show up all at once.

Sorry to hear that. With any luck they'll all pop at the same time as ^ said.

On a lighter note, maybe this is a new feature to solve the level cap dilemma; characters with "leaky" skill trees.

It worked out and the character has the skill points. When the game 1st came out, I remember you could spam that vault box and make it keep popping out nice weapons. Now it makes you confirm the using the key before you open the chest right?

Right, shows you how many keys you have, a confirmation on opening the chest and then locks once you've opened it.

Yeah the last couple batches have expired rather quickly. Not sure if that's Gearbox's doing or if more gamers are redeeming them.

Hey guys got a question: I spent the better part of last night trying to beat Master Gee with a buddy but got our asses kicked. Does anyone have any recommendations? We are levels 39 and 40 respectively if that helps. Also we just beat the main story part of pirates booty and found it a bit too easy. Is it possible to replay the DLC later in True vault hunter where the stuff scales to you?

Thanks.

How do you do that? is it an option in the DLC or am I just supposed to load my save in TVHM and just fast travel to those areas from sanctuary?

Select your character and it'll ask you if you wanna play normal or TVHM anything you did in normal doesn't carry over to TVHM you'll essentially be starting over with your gear

Do you no longer get Golden Keys for putting in Aliens and logging into Shift? If so I wasted $2 on a Redbox rental of that PoS.
