Default When to play DLC1?

Hi,

I've got two questions about the DLC "Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty": Is it possible to start playing the DLC after the first playthrough of the main story or requires the content a lvl 50 character? And if it's possible to play it after the first playthrough, do the quests reset upon finishing the DLC so I can make them again after finishing the main game in tvhm?

Can start it anytime. Or after PT1/2/2.5 your choice.

The quests scale to the main storyline, all this being said, I would suggest trying it after you start TVHM in case you need a nice little boost weapon wise.

The enemies and gear cap out at level 30-31 for the DLCs on normal.
IMO, best to do normal mode DLCs after story to level some and have an edge for TVHM. Then beat TVHM story, TVHM DLCs will scale to 50. Do them again anytime after this. Good luck.

You can start playing the DLC any time after level 15. In PT1 it only scales to level 30 (Enemies and gear) so there's no reason to avoid it after you hit 30.

And the DLC doesn't reset after you finish it. -But- everything is reset automatically in TVHM, they're considered completely separate playthroughs so you can play through the DLC once on normal mode (capped at 30) and once on TVHM (caps at 50).

I also agree that it's worth running through on normal once. I have a Maya that's checked out up to Liar's burg in TVHM and gone back and done both DLC. Didn't get much worthwhile gear but the missions still award decent XP for completion, pushed her up a few levels.

Thanks for the replies and all the info . Then I'll try the DLC once I finished the normal mode.
