I thought it was really random too to put Tumbaa in the same category as Terra

As for the legendary items: look up where they drop and go farm for the ones you want. Although I wouldn't recommend that now. It usually takes quite a while until you get the weapon you want and at your level they become pretty useless fast since you're still leveling up.

Farm The Warrior for a few hours, he really isn't difficult. There's a quick way for every character to beat him. You should get a couple legendarys from that and you'll have a nice purple inventory to head into TVHM with.

All my oranges are things I picked up in the regular course of playing the main game and side quests rather than farming - don't have the patience for that! For example, working through one mission the other day I had a loot midget spawn on me and drop an Orange Pitchfork. Sometimes, by the time I get them they're no longer that good for the character I found them with as I was over-levelled for a particular DLC or mission. But you can always pass them on to your next character...

Pearlescent weapons neither come from a golden chest or are in playthrough 1

The legendary weapons can drop at any time, any playthrough. My lowest level legendary is a level 5 grenade mod from 1st playthrough (with one of my characters) of Boom Bewm. Knuckle Dragger can drop one too very early in the game. I also had a level 11 legendary rocket launcher and level 20 shotgun drop that were scaled to my level at the time.

Read up on where they can drop and revisit those bosses over and over - you'll level up and increase your chances of getting a legendary.

Do side missions to level up and some guns given as quest rewards are blue with red text in weapon description and have special attributes.

EDIT: Also you can tip Moxxi at any time and she'll eventually part with one of her guns. Tip slowly so you don't interrupt her as she's about to give you a gun. Also, tip big!

No. The golden chest does NOT give Pearlescent weapons. Not even in UVHM with a max level character. Really. Trust us on this one. The highest you can get is purple/E-tech.

This is purple:


This is E-tech:


This is legendary:


And THIS is Pearlescent, the most rare of them all:

Well, correction I won't say any level. Yes, I'm in normal... Because I started redeeming alot of gold keys around level 25-27. And got alot of the purple weapons, from what I understand the purples are pearlescents.
