Default Gaige vs Terramorphus: Can he be solo'd?

I should add...I don't have The Bee or a Conference Call (any class can solo Big T with those two items it seems). For us unlucky enough to get a hold of those Legendary drops, what are some viable builds/strategies?

I went through PT1/2/2.5 with an emphasis to Deathtrap damage and durability so I'm thinking I'll have to respec for Terra (since DT resorts to shock turret mode). Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, and here is how. Go to the shooting range and max ur Anarchy stacks, u want at least like 400, then just grab a rocket launcher. Good luck.

I've been soloing him on my Siren with The Bee + a purple, fiery Social Crowdsourcing. It's not the CC, but it's similar enough. I would assume that Gaige with a Zapper mod and LBT build could produce similar results with an electric version. However, Terra is weak to fire...So I don't really know.

Soloing Terra all but requires you to use the Bee. Thankfully, it's one of the easiest legendaries to farm. If you can't find an appropriate shotgun (Mine dropped from Terra himself) you can do what I did and grab a Lasceux from Frostfire Canyon, guaranteed to spawn in the same spot every time. It's not a s fast or easy, but it's doable.

This video details the best way to fight him: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9YR4IXF00Q

Thanks for the tips guys. Looks like I need to pick up the Bee regardless.

Good plan. Soloing Terra can be done without the Bee, but you'll really save yourself some frustration if you spend a little bit farming Hellquist to grab the bee first, it makes the battle go soo much smoother.

No idea why you would want a Bee. I went in with just 200 stacks and a Hyperion shotty and came out fine.

But I guess if you want things to go smoothly, then sure.

__ Able to beat terra very fast __
Conference call shotgun
Bee Shield

Easy to solo, but I'd recommend a 13 clip magazine or more conference call
More damage on the bee shield the better can be over 50 or 80k
Must have skill is the one that makes you shoot a lot faster when half clip

Summon DT where Terra pops out, you'll fly back and Terra will just attack DT a lot allowing you to easily take him out

DLC bosses you'll need:
Tediore explosive/magazine relic

Terra isn't exactly hard to solo with a DT build. I managed to do it but you have to know that it'll take a long time, and a lot of running around. Also, luck helps a lot against Terra when you don't have the correct items.

I managed to kill him 90% of the time with ease without The Bee.
Just use a good shock weapon and ALWAYS let Deathtrap zap him when he emerges from the ground each time BEFORE you shoot him.
I did this WITHOUT stacking Anarchy (ran a shock/discord build), and used Blood-soaked Shields on the tentacles to keep me alive.

I soloed him perfectly well on pt2.5.

Arm yourself and deathtrap with the hide of Terramorpheous. Go with the sharing is caring skill. Arm yourself with the Texas Orphan Maker. Get anarchy and also the skill that does a AOE electrical attack whenever you reload. The AOE skill damage scales with the number of anarchy stacks.

Go to sanctuary, unload bullets on the firing range dummy at Marcus munitions until you have max stacks. Go see uncle Terramorpheous. You should be able to kill him in a couple of seconds...
