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.

Found out anyone can join someone who has it, so I had a buddy help. We still couldn't manage to bring it down until 4-5 tries later though. In that time, we gained 3 levels to boot. Pretty amazing grind spot TBH since the enemies spawn at your level.

So my plan to Retro City Rampage out tomorrow while pacing my Siren leveling for the 16th is seemingly shot then?

I need a poop-sock and some coffee damnit!

edit: The Mechromancer DLC/patch seems to be invoking the Badass Rank reset issue for some:

Be sure to backup your 'C:\Users\YourName\Documents\My Games\Borderlands 2\WillowGame\SaveData' folder just in case.

edit 2: DLC/patch is now live on Steam. (560 mb)

edit 3: Started a new game and so far so good. Badass rank intact. Also, the opening comic and cinematic have not been altered to include the Mechromancer so feel free to skip them.

Yeah, I backed up my saves and loaded: no issues with keys or BA rank. Might be related to creating a mechromancer character, but I'm not even bothering with that right now, if ever.

Had no issues with my Badass Rank at all. Enjoying the Mechro so far, though I'm still unsure how I want to use her skilltree.

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

Thanks, that will come in handy.

Also, does anyone know if the Season Pass DLC includes the Premier Club/Mechromancer thing that's available now?

At least M$ gave them the benefit of the doubt by giving their product a value in the billions :D

The Season Pass does not include the Premiere Club bonuses or the Mechromancer class.

Everytime I start BL2 now it says there was a problem downloading your DLC and some of it may be corrupt. Odd.


"Some of your downloadable content is corrupt and cannot be loaded."


EDIT: Verifying game content through steam fixed it it seems!

Wow, at early levels the Mechromancer seems really OP. I can just summon Deathtrap at the boss' and watch everyone get slaughtered. When I fought Flynt I summoned it right at the start, then killed a couple pyschos who were attacking me. By the time I killed them Flynt and all his guys were dead except like one of them.

I'm really enjoying the Mechromancer so far. (level 20):

I've found that Deathtrap is awesome for farming as you can simply toss him out in a rough spot and he'll aggro everything while you just keep on running towards your loot target.

If you're going for Ordered Chaos then I'd recommend getting weapons where you actually can't accidentally reload and keep using those until you've invested into Discord. I originally thought that I'd avoid Discord but I've found it to be absolutely vital as having all of your Anarchy stacks eaten sucks balls whereas Discord causes it to tick-away rather than get eaten all at once.

I've since adjusted to not reloading constantly and I'm starting to actually use Discord as a mechanic although rarely.

Here's my build so far:
http://cloud-2.steam...A10771F6C6C844/
I put one point in Cooking Up Trouble (life regen while magazine is full) just to have some health regenerating but it really goes well with low magazine size weapons as well as Blood Soaked Shields (instantly restores shield on kill at the expense of health).

But really, I'm just glad to have a solid shotgun character and holy shit can she one-shot stuff with a decent stack of Anarchy.:applause:

Cool a new currency and loot rarity level. It makes me curious as to what their plans are for end-game content as that is something which needs to be addressed.

Plenty of other loot games out there this year for Gearbox to steal ideas from.

I am surprised how CPU intensive this game is. When I first started playing I was running on an i3-2120 with my GTX 660 Ti. With everything maxed and physx on high at 1080p, I would have frame rates drop into the low 30s during intense battles. I upgraded to 3570k, and it would drop to around 45. After OCing to 4.4 GHz, I can barely get it to drop past the 60 fps limit of my monitor.

So I really didnt have the money for the season pass when I bought BL2. So I convinced myself that it's ok, I'll just get each DLC separately and if a somewhat crappy one comes out (like Moxxi's was in BL1), then it's ok cause I wont have to get it.

Then I realized that even if a crappy DLC comes out, it'll still probably have a level cap increase that I'll want, and that the season pass gives me one DLC for free.

Now I'm sad.

I got lucky and bought the Season pass for cheap. I got the game + season pass for less than the retail price of the game.

And I am really enjoying the mechromancer, she is wrecking everything in both anarchy and deathtrap builds.

Seriously some of the deals are amazing. I am buying so many more games for the price of 1 new game on my 360.

Eh...went ahead and purchased the season pass. I was initially just going to pay the $10 as the DLC's came out, that way I could skip them if I wanted. Then I had the same thoughts as Waughoo. Pretty excited for Tuesdays DLC.

Solo'd the raid boss tonight; wasn't too tough once I found a 'special' spot to snipe from. Wasn't able to get a kill screen because I forgot F12 is the hotkey and he slips under the ground pretty fast once he dies. I was also surprised when he died since he still had about 10% HP left. Guess he dies when he runs out of tentacles.
