I've been doing a lot of single player. But my one friend always gets on kinda late and wants to do a couple quick missions. Instead he gets on and we both sink like 10-15k into the slot machine for Eridium :)

What is short to you? One play through?

It has already been confirmed that you will beat your first playthrough around level 32.



Ah I didn't know that, I tried to keep myself from any info prior to the game's release because I wanted to enjoy it as thoroughly as possible. I was hoping you'd get to the end of the story close to 50, I was disappointed when I finish BL1 at like level 37. I'm doing all the side quests that I have first then moving the story along, then back to any side quests I get then back to story etc etc.

Legendaries are red, not orange. Also that red text can make a meh looking gun into something awesome.

No, Legendaries are orange. The game doesn't even have red weapons, unless you're talking about the pink ones, in which case those are alien guns. The only thing that is red in the game is health vials.

Red text can also make a seemingly good gun fucking terrible.

Though my favourite one was a tediore shotgun that, instead of exploding on reload, flew around and started auto-targetting my enemies until it emptied its magazine.

Yeah, you're right. I had it confused with Torchlight 2 because I was playing both at the same time. Forgot that the legendary item achievement is in Torchlight 2.

Although I still stand by what I said about red text. However like Crotch said, it can make a good weapon terrible. I had a level 8 or 9 Legendary Pistol with 1 magazine size and yet I used it effectively until I was level 22'ish. It never needed to be reloaded and had infinite ammo. Was a great gun for close to close-med range.

That pistol is pretty decent for level 15, I don't know about Legendary quality but it's not terrible.

Red Text Wiki. (not sure if it's been posted)

And yeah you can end up with stuff like:

The red text translates to 'This is not a Sniper Rifle'. (it has no scope only iron sights:booty:)

I've been going back and playing solo through a lot of the side quests I missed early in the game from playing multiplayer. Most of them are worth playing through even if the rewards aren't that spectacular. The humor is reward enough.

See the black spec up-left of my crosshairs? It's a varkid. It started levitating in front of me and eventually flew into the skybox. I think it had something to do with phaselock?

Less amusingly, the game later crashed while I was on the third wave of Tina's tea party. Phaselock (or, more specifically, thoughtlock) produced some odd behaviour there, too, though nobody flew into the sky.

The raid boss in this game is fucking stupid. Everything before it is fun and at times challenging, but the raid boss is just cheap and not fun at all. He one-shots everything, and when you get downed, everything you can kill to revive yourself magically decides to disappear, so you're just forced to die.

I hate when game devs don't know the difference between challenging and just downright cheap. Its pretty dumb too because 99% of the game is a blast, but the last thing you wind up playing sucks and leaves a sour taste in your mouth.

:applause: this post belongs in my "lying cheating game rant thread" in general gaming, go let some steam out. Almost exactly what I say about a few games.

On a good note, I used my golden key from a few days ago right before the final mission which I'm on now, and got a sweet 653 damage SMG for my level 31 self. most [pwerful I've had until that was 240. Bout friggin time

STAIRS???? NNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Welp, done with that fucking raid boss. I'm at the point where its doing nothing but make me hate the game, so I figure I should probably give it up. The whole thing is just incredibly stupid though. I would've loved to have been a fly on the wall for the initial conversation about that.

Has anyone found a Dastardly Widowmaker pistol? Found a Youtube video where a guy had one that was giving him the "Evil will be SMASHED!!! WITH SMASHING!!! EVIL!!! SMASH!!! ER!!!" effect, even though it wasnt part of the gun's description. Also, it wasnt just effecting the pistol, all weapons he was using had the effect until one of them was reloaded.

The raid boss is tera right? If so- if you just hang back by the walls and shoot you're good. I was with a full group of my friends and we took him down like 15 times without a problem.
Being a siren, I don't think I'd be able to do it alone though.

I had that point with the game already. One of those driving missions where it's like hey deliver x packages in y amount of time. This one literally made me shut the game off and I have not turned it on again. Sounds easy enough but when you fall off a small bridge because of the shitty handling of the car and your car gets stuck, thus failing the mission. Yeah no...

I did that with a a full group, so it probably seemed less bad. We split up and conquered gathering items and then all raced to try and turn it in.

Yeah, its Terramorphous. My friend and I have been trying to duo it (I'm a Siren and he is a Commando). I've respec'd and everything to make it so I can rez with my phaselock, but its still a bitch. Like I said, the damn thing will spawn 6-9 tentacles ALL the time, but when it downs both of you, everything goes underground for like 40 seconds, so you have nothing to shoot to give yourself a second wind. You're just forced to die, which is really annoying. We dont really have an issues with being knocked off the map.

That's how we did it as well. We failed the first time, so the second time we all just stayed at different spots while one person started it.

Is that the one in creature slaughter dome, from the GS DLC? Cuz that fucker is bullshit; can't beat him. I tried five times solo before giving up because no matter where you are when he surfaces, you get downed. I'd have to use some serious fire resist shield to even stand a chance and I'm not trolling myself over shitty game mechanics.

Nah, its the last sort of "boss". You have to be level 50 to fight him (well, you can do it earlier but you'll get ass raped). Honestly, we didn't have an issue with the GS DLC. Beat it on our first try.
