Not sure if this has been brought up or not but after reading around on the Gearbox boards, it seems that someone did an experiment on PC with the Vault Hunter Relic. Set it to like +10000% rare loot or something and it basically just removed white guns and replaced them with green ones, while having no apparent effect on blue, purple, or orange drops. So if any of you guys are still clinging onto it, you might as well ditch it in favor of something more useful.


Thanks. I ditched it a long time ago and felt kinda bad, but now I don't.

I used my pre-order artifact up until I got a bunch of nice second wind ones for my Gunzerker.

I pretty much only use Action Skill cooldown relics so far. Found one a while ago that cut my Deception's cooldown by 20% and I'm having a hard time turning back.

Very curious as to whether the Infinity Pistol works with the Ordered Chaos tree. Specifically SLF and Anarchy. Interesting synergy between it, Blood Soaked and Discord. I hate how electric element oriented LBT is and I'm only interested in the DT skills and the final two from BFF.

I have to admit this tempered my hype for Gaige a bit. If DT isn't worth the ridiculously high cooldown rate then I may be struggling to finish a playthrough with her as I am with Maya.

Pitchford tweeted this, curious to see what it is.

@DuvalMagic: There may be a big surprise from us within the next 24 hours or so. Stay tuned!

Probably something to compete with the release of Dishonored and the new ME3 MP DLC tomorrow. Either way I hope it's worth stalking his twitter page and I don't miss out on it.

Thank you, I'll equip something else for sure now.

I'm guessing it's an early release for Gaige.

Just want to publicly thank Necromantix (not sure what his CAG name is) for taking a few hours this morning and helping me get from 39 to 43, and majorly progressing me through the story. It was greatly appreciated.

A long road indeed... You may be sick of Borderlands by the time you get to #2. >_>

Gaige sounds awesome. Dunno if I could stand to play through the game, again, so soon, though. Probably have to power level her up instead...


Edit: I don't know if I'd be sure that the Mechro would be ready, so soon. Remember Microsoft's tedious certification process? They'd have had to be done with her before this week, I think. I guess it's possible... PS3 and PC would get it, at least.

Anyone else underwhelmed by Gaige's trees. They seem to be interesting and different but I don't know if the quirks are worth the effort. It would be annoying to build up stacks of anarchy only to lose them when you accidentally reload trying to open chest/pick up ammo. I guess it depends on how good deathclap is and how damaging the melee override is. It also doesn't help that the elemental she specializes in are IMO the lesser two (shock and explosion). We'll see.

Quite possibly... I pretty much soloed the first game all the way through (had no one on the friends list playing at the times I was online or close to my level) and stopped twice before getting through it all. (Then found someone to play the first with and made much better progress through it on my second playthrough and DLC.)

That said, anyone playing the first hang in there, the second is a much better experience for a solo player.. (As I've pretty much soloed this one too.)

Which sort of brings me to this...

I'm getting ready to get on, I'm playing a first playthrough level 31 commando, and should be online most of the night/morning so if anyone is looking to team up send me a friend request.

The final raspberry (I don't like cherries as much) on this cake is that Gearbox decided to release the DLC early. So while it was originally slated for an October 16th release, players on all platforms—Xbox 360, PS3, PC—will be able to download the Mechromancer by the end of today (October 9th). And you should, because she's great.

LOL.

So much for the suspense. I think I'm going to settle on an autopilot tank build for her and let Deathtrap do all the heavy lifting. Basically a much meater version of my current Axton build - 31 in BFF / 14 LBT / 0 OC. I'll dabble with Ordered Chaos when I have the necessary tolerance to grind for decent weapons to make the most out of it. I'm positive by the time I get around to it staple builds will have flooded the community anyway.

I'd like to at least try that build, but I'm really liking the shock elemental tree. Nothing in the game really resists shock damage, plus it fucks shields.

My current opinion of Deathtrap (Lvl. 6 Gaige):
Spoiler


Overall I dig the bot though hopefully I can round out is offensive capabilities without speccing deeper into LBT if the melee doesn't scale adequately. I reeeeaaaaallllyyyy don't want to have to kill everything myself this playthrough.

Yeah that sucks - I see a lot of people complaining about it on the gearbox bl2 forums. Guess I'll wait a bit and see what comes of it before downloading.
