Default Any reason to do Digistruct Peak before I hit lvl 72?

I have run it twice now (I am still a meager lvl 61). If I run it a few more times, do I THEN get to pick overlevels or only after I hit 72 then run it 8 times? Is there a reason to do it at this level or am I just wasting my time getting little exp and bad loot for now? Thanks for the info!

Sadly you are mostly wasting your time.

Overpower Levels are only accessible once Digistruct Peak is completed @ lvl 72.

If you enjoy the gauntlet, then by all means continue.

The problem is that it's just very slow and inefficient.

Turning in the Quests form the Main game or DLC's and Farming Legendary Loot Midgets for upgrades is a more efficient option.

Though if you're bored of the Main Game @ this point...then I don't know what to say =\

After 2 run throughs I have got mostly white drops with a few REALLY bad greens. Even the blues that I got at the end of run 2 as mission rewards (playing 2 player split screen, so we got two guns) were both AWFUL. Does the reward loot or drop loot get better as you play through?

OP, you must have missed Tannis's message just after you killed the assassins at the end of your first run through - she says that you'll have to come back at level 72 to unlock Overlevelling.

My co-op lackey and I did it at level 61 just for something new to do, but grinding it isn't worth it until you hit the level cap again.

@ lvl 72 the Quality of loot does not change a whole lot, the only major increase is the Level of the loot. Tannis will also give Purple Quality Weapons for each Gauntlet Completion, but it still isn't much.

Bar room brawl.
I've had the dlc for about 12 hours, and not even those whole 12 hours I've played, and I'm already level 71.

There isn't a reason. I'd rather be level 72 and do it first. By doing bar room brawls, obviously.
