I'm playing Moze and she rock. I'm level 31 and putting the points on the Bottemless Mags to get last skill for ammo regen. Killing the bosses with my Merch using fireblower on both arms it make it much easier.

Anyone try new DLC? Good? Better than what I thought was tedium, but still pretty good Moxxi DLC...

Moxxi DLC is so far pretty mediocre. I'll give my final opinion upon completion.

I liked the Moxxi DLC more than the main game.

I played it a bit over the weekend. I haven't gotten very far yet, but the story is interesting so far. The new enemies aren't a drastic departure from the rest of the game. Having a few new skill points is nice. The legendaries in the vending machines is great, I was able to upgrade a couple of things that I was using.

Yeah Ptichford seems like a huge Prick. I still cant believe they took the money given to them to make Aliens: Colonial Marines, took a fraction of the money and outsourced developing Aliens to another company and spent the rest of the money developing Borderlands 2.

Pretty good article here going into a lot of the details. While it states the company pays lower than average compared to others, it also states that the Bonus Profit Sharing program is around 40% of the Company Profits are handed out.....that's no small number if that's true. One side is saying the milestone was reached while the other side is saying the game costs more to make and another division of gearbox was started....hard to pick a side in this one....if they're getting nothing, yea that really sucks...however if they're being offered something like 20-30% that's something else....

No idea.
I did one Cartel mission and it went fine. Started the second one and just quit on my own because I got tired. Went back, and everything was as it was where I left off - so no issues here (playing on PS4, BTW)

well, i uninstalled and reinstalled and seemed to fix everything, but there doesn't seem to be a save point. even though i cleared a few areas, got inside the mansion for first cartel boss and there was one of those save pods. i quit game and when i went back in i was back at beginning of Villa Ultraviolet level with all enemies respawned. UGH!!!

Re: Borderlands 3 (9/13/2019: PC, PS4, XB1, Stadia)

Can someone tell me why if at level 47, when I open gold chest on Sanctuary, all I get is purple weapons and shields and everything? Why arenít I getting good, rare or even legendary stuff? Is there some other place I can get to easily that has good loot? There isnít another gold chest somewhere, right?

The gold chest on Sanct is the only gold chest, and getting a legendary from it is rare. They had a Rare Chest Riches event a couple weeks ago in which red chests dropped a shitton of legendaries, but that has come and gone.

If you want to farm for legendaries now, go to Pandora for the Loot the Universe event. Shit's dropping like crazy over there, and it's even better if you are in co-op. Each zone has dedicated drops for weapon types/shields/class mods. Here are the zones and what they drop:
  • Covenant Pass - Nothing Found
  • The Droughts - SMGs & Class Mods
  • Ascension Bluff - Snipers
  • Devil's Razor - ARs & Grenades
  • The Splinterlands - Pistols
  • Carnivora - ARs & Shields
  • Guts of Carnivora - Rocket Launchers
  • Konrad's Hold - SMGs
  • Sandblast Scar - Nothing Found
  • Cathedral of the Twin Gods - Shotguns & Artifacts
  • The Great Vault - Nothing Found
  • Destroyer's Rift - Nothing Found
  • The Slaughter Shaft - Nothing Definitive
This event goes from April 23-30. Next will be Promethea.

Re: Borderlands 3 (9/13/2019: PC, PS4, XB1, Stadia)

You most definitely want Mayhem mode on. Mayhem mode 2.0 was just released and there are now 10 levels of Mayhem, which can be changed via your menu (no more need to go to Sanct). A Mayhem 4 gun will have higher damage than a Mayhem 3 gun. You can also reroll your modifiers until you are happy with them. There are things like Big Head mode, Floor is Lava, etc.

Just pick a zone with a weapon type you are looking for and find spots where mobs spawn. Kill everything, then save quit and go at it again, so that they will respawn. Go to Konrad's hold and try to find a Cutsman SMG (they come in all elements) with a good annoint. That will make you much more of a killer. Look for a Transformer or Stop Gap shield, a Maggie pistol, a Brainstormer shotgun, etc. Play the Cartel event and look for a Yellowcake (OP as fuck) or an OPQ.

Once you start getting better gear you can start turning that Mayhem level up and up. You'll also want to get to level 57. The best place to farm XP is Scraptrap prime boss on DLC1. Kill him over and over and you will be lvl 57 before you know it (although with the Cartel event going on right now, that fight is crazy, as the Cartel will spawn in there... you could disable the event while you're farming that spot if you're having trouble).

Just finished the main story, and geeze the Cost Effective Standardized O.P.Q. System (AR) was certainly OP. I snagged a nice legendary one at around level 37 with my Beastmaster - Stalker build and never used another gun through the end game (level 48). One shot exploded most enemies, and emptying a clip during Fade Away took out bosses in seconds.

Might be my playing style, but some anointeds that look OP on paper don't seem to do shit for me, while other ones really mop the floor.

We're not talking specifically about mayhem mode, but the guns, stats, and areas you should already be familiar with before you start mayhem mode in order to get the most out of it.
