Default Re: Trickk's Help Guide for True Vault Hunter Mode

I almost found playthrough one harder, because my character was weaker. Without all the skills in my tree I had to do a lot more second winds/sniping/running. Now that I am deep in my skill trees and have better gear, I often run in caution to the wind and go guns blazing. I play on co-op as maya and my friend playing axtion. Yeah i realize its harder, but my character is also tougher and more skilled to deal with it. Even with that for fun I'm playing jakobs only guns, so limiting my potential at that.

The thought of needed to go split screen to prevent myself from dying to keep bloodwing from regenerating isn't really playing the game, just concentrate on not dying and killing him, its more fun that way. Grinding isn't that much fun, playing the missions and doing some exploring is.

I just saved Roland by running through and quickly mutilating Warden with a 60k Caustic Rocket Launcher after one shot of slag and I'm level 41 already. You just have to use cover and a lot of grenades (: lol

Whoa whoa, what? Can someone explain this to me?

Moxxi's Good Touch returns health as the corrosive damage over time affect damages enemies.

Whoa.... I never noticed the healing with her good touch. So as long as I save and quit right after receiving the gun, I can keep getting them? Holy crap that'll be a major help with the last stretch of TVHM

A couple of really stupid questions here, please bear with my noobishnes:

1 - does the healing work the same way as a transfusion grenade, where you get the little red crosses coming back to you? If it does, then yeah, that explains a lot, lol.

2 - is it ONLY "Moxxi's" Good Touch that does this, or will ANY of the "Good Touch" weapons do it? I've got a level 28 "Lucid" Good Touch, and another level 18th Good Touch (forget the prefix).

Sorry, I meant her bad touch, the corrosive one. Your health regenerates as you do DoT corrosive damage, it shouldn't come with the little transfusion crosses.

Nevermind, apparently both of her weapons give a health regeneration bonus. Double my bad. http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Good_Touch

In PT2 you have to actually hide and use cover and maybe have to run away some times. They have way better accuracy and you can't take on 5 guys in the wide open with no cover.

Everyone mentions the hide and shoot type deal, which I agree. Couple more things I've picked up from playing TVHM more.

1. Slag, Corrosive, Shock are your friends...everyone seems to resist fire.

2. Do Not have lower level buddies join on you (ie- levels 20-30), it will increase the amount of enemies without you having any sort of legit back-up.

3. Nothing wrong with doing side missions that don't give great weapons/loot so you can level up before doing the main story. I noticed that doing a level 47 mission when I was a level 44 was almost impossible for me. Got to level 47 with almost the same weapons and I was able to breeze through it.
