Default How to beat Terramorphous?

I know how this sounds, and I hate having to ask it, but I literally cannot beat Terramorphous. I'm using the rocks to avoid most of the attacks, but one of the following always happens less than 2 minutes into the fight:

1. Rock tentacle throws a rock at me. I've seen people in videos dodge this by crouching down and getting as close to the rock as possible. When I try it, though, I take the hit and end up in FFYL mode.

2. Trying to get away from Terramorphous when he gets close to the rocks, I get trapped and can't jump over them to get away. One swipe later, and I'm in FFYL mode.

I know it's supposed to be possible, but somehow the method that everyone else is using successfully is getting me killed. Obviously, I'm doing something wrong, but as far as I can tell, I'm following the YouTube videos precisely.

If it makes any difference, I'm using a Level 49 Cataclysm Siren against the Normal Mode Terramorphous, as I haven't unlocked PT2.5 yet in TVHM.

Does anyone have any advice for someone who doesn't have anyone to go coop with?

Terra is the same in 2.5 and 1.

You really should be 50 when taking him on, you also need ether a flakker or the cc+bee.

I can't see one level making that much of a difference.

Step one: start 2.5 by killing the warrior
Step two: farm a bee from hunter hellquist
Step three: ???
Step four: profit

So despite the fact that I'm level 49, I have no chance whatsoever because I haven't started 2.5?

level 50 weapons and more health.

Try it with a 49 bee and a 49 cc. Takes three minutes if he doesn't kill you.


Yeah you pretty much have no chance unless you are 2.5

See, that's the problem. Part of the reason I want to kill him now is for the XP so that I can be at Level 50 before starting the Talon of God quest. I'm hoping that being at Level 50 will cause the quest to scale to Level 50, so I can Moonshot Farm a half-decent CC.

Talon of God on PT2 is a Level 50 quest anyway.

Ah. That eliminates my worry, then. I wasn't sure whether it was scaled to your level, or if it was a set level, and if it was a set level, what level that was. I'll come back once I've got better gear, then.

Get yourself a blockhead from a badass creeper if you can't farm for an at level cc or flakker. The extra level will help, but its not going to be easy without the right gun.
