Default Leveling in UVHM, bloodshed or cunning?

Chain melee kills? Or kunai for leveling through uvhm?

Im level 50 and almost finished with tvhm. Cant really tell now since you dont really need slag in p2.

Preference, really. Either will get you through. I went MMF over Deathblossom for the start of UVHM.

And im having a hard time deciding when to use the rubi or the rapier. Rapier when full health and just in deception, rubi to get you back up with melee?

Well, that comes with time. You'll figure out that near barrels, you should use the Rubi, which enemies require a rapier backstab to go down, etc.

Does the rubi heal for the amount of damage it deals gun/melee?

Alright thanks. I noticed shooting barely does any healing with the 50 version but the melee does absurd healing.

This takes some practice but its actually a lot more fun than i thought it would be

I went MMF in UVHM (level 50 Thumper + Rubi) until maybe level 52-53ish, when it started to get harder to chain kills together, at which point I repecced back to Cunning until I hit 57, at which point I could take both (and at which point playing melee Zer0 became REALLY fun )

Yeah there was a tough spot for me from about 51-55 for me with MMF but it is great from 55 on or so.

When I get tired of farming Hyperius I'm going back to full Bloodshed/Cunning.

I went with Death Blossom pre-level 57 because I didn't want to face the bigger enemies without kunai. It does make mobs a little harder since you have to be careful about approaching enemies out of Deception.
