Who ever thought of the idea of making a dlc so that if you go through and clear out, many enemies of all variety, in many rooms and per chance die have to go back to the very beginning, is a total moron. Itís brainless and Iíll probably never revisit that pos.

Re: Tiny Tina's Wonderlands (Borderlands spin-off) --> 3/25/22 --> (all platforms, sans Switch)

this game is a fucking blast to play! plain and simple.

i was lukewarm at the beginning, but slowly, as i built up my character (even level 10 and beyond is where it started) and got the things i wanted (guns, wards, spells, etc.), it has really taken off. i'm level 39 and still have 2 main missions to go. i'm doing side quests and conquering the Overworld. most combat encounters i don't even have to shoot my gun really. i got a ward (Hammer and Anvil) that is super high and has this hammer that follows me and kills bad guys very well. i melee a lot with a melee weapon that spawns hydras that shoot enemies. i got the frying pan too, which i used for awhile and loved, but then got another legendary melee weapon that just kicks ass. between those and spells and my action skill, i literally sit in a corner and watch the carnage and hardly have to do anything except run over and pick up fallen loot. it's amazing really and so much fun. i almost don't want it to end.

i play for hours on end now and just am having a ton of fun beating areas, completing quests and finding a lot of hidden stuff.

i really thought i would be burnt out from so much Borderlands 3 not too far back, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Because while this maybe a spin-off, it shares only a little with the Borderlands franchise and hell, i would love another one of Tiny Tina's Wonderlands. hope it sold well because i love being in this world and enjoy every facet of it and would love to play a sequel or two.

This is IMO the best Borderlands game at launch overall, the story is fun, great gameplay, and the endgame is good. The main story is a little short, but I don't mind that since you will probably have to play through it with multiple classes, I do wish they had a start at Brighthoof option for your next playthroughs though. BL3 after multiple years got it to a great place but started horribly, BL2 had a great story but the endgame was terrible, TPS got killed before endgame really happened but had the best VH skill trees to this day.

It's really a shame about that DLC, if DLC1 was ALL 4 mirrors it would be no problem, but this just launched poorly. My last chaos chamber run seriously had Chums as the end boss. It gives me no reason to play the DLC when the rewards for the Chaos Chamber are much greater.

what is the chaos chamber exactly? is that the "endgame" and what does that mean?

i'm level 40, but haven't finished the campaign yet. and besides starting a new class and getting Myth points (what is this rank anyway?), what is the incentive to keep playing? and, if you start a new class build, new character, etc., do i lose my existing level 40 character?

i hit 40 and know i need to finish main campaign, but not sure i want to continue after main. any word on if the level cap will be raised at some point?

Wow! was that a finale. great last level and final boss, the Dragon Lord. i actually had chills when he was defeated. the songs, Critical Hit and then Dragon Attack by Queen were fantastic credit role songs. i was surprised i didn't even die or need a death save at all. very unlike me. that's a first for me. but, wow, just what a way to end a game. kinda sad it's over. i want a sequel now!

Totally agree. Best game I've played in a long time. I've done some Chaos Chamber stuff afterwards but I think I'm about done. Great ride.

i think i'm done too. i did some chaos runs on easy then hard. didn't pose much of a challenge. too bad too. i hope the next 3 dlc's bring back that same fun as the main game, but with that first, not looking too good. who knows. now, gotta find something else to play that's just as addictive. which, is gonna be so hard.

I'm up to Chaos level 25. That seems like my sweet point, the game give a good challenge mobbing, Bad Ass enemies seems to appear more. Right now I'm farming Loot Dice to get my luck up.

I played the new week of the DLC, but there just isn't much there. Recycled areas/enemies, quite lazy. It's quite concerning that their plan was to have 3 more mirrors with, I assume, the same thing. Again if all 4 mirrors were 1 DLC, thats fine, but each one of these costing like $10 is crazy. In BL3 the DLCs had new enemies, new areas and new REAL stories for the same price. The second season pass may not have been great in BL3, but it was miles better than this. I still love the game, now I just need to play as my spell shot, I'm going to miss my pet mushroom though.

Does anyone or has anyone seen their Loot Dice numbers down or reset lower....someone mentioned it to me they saw their character has lost nearly half and there was something out there about it with last or before update. They have been trying to farm some certain Boss on a certain item, nearly 20 runs and only 2-3 Legendary dropped. So we ran a normal Chaos Chamber and at the end with the Golden Rabbits, had enough for three tries....I did all three of mine for the Armor Character Mod....just one Legendary of 12 drops....

...and it seems I'm not seeing a lot of those....costly items...you know like items valued at say 13K to 20k drop much either. Last night there was more Blue drops and most seemed like 5K to 8K....I'm not hurting for Gold but before i'd using items to send to other characters to sell.
