Well, I think I might have screwed up a bit on my TVHM play through. I played straight through TVHM without playing many side missions, since I had done all of them in the normal mode. I really have nothing but terrible weapons and I’m afraid I’m not going to be able to get through UVHM at all. It took 9 attempts for me just to kill the Warrior in TVHM and it cost me just about all of my money, mainly because the only weapon that did much damage to the Warrior was my turret. Every time it expired I was pretty much just meat waiting for the slaughter. The truth is that at nearly 60 years old, I’m afraid I may not have the skill or reflexes to be able to play at UVHM. I have only played as Axton since I can let the turret do the heavy lifting and I can hide to stay alive. But from what I’ve read, that doesn’t seem to work on UVHM.
I’m currently at level 50. Almost 51. I’ve been trying to farm Pyro Pete’s bar for Torque tokens to buy an DPUH. But I’m only at 449 tokens so I have a lot of farming left. I have also noticed that it has been impossible for me to beat the bar room side mission at level 50 because I always run out of time before I get all the big guys killed. So farming has been very slow. 3 or 4 tokens at a time is proving to be quite a hill to climb to 650. Getting those 20 tokens for completing that mission would help a lot.
Anyway, any suggestions for a rather bad player here? Should I stay in TVHM and try to earn some money back before trying UVHM? Or is UVHM just going to be more than I can handle no matter how much money and tokens I can farm? I’m enjoying the game, but I’m not sure I really want to play all the side missions over again in TVHM just to have something to do. And I’ve read that any weapons I do get in TVHM aren’t much use in UVHM anyway. BTW, in all of my experience in BL2, I’ve only gotten 5 legendaries. Is that a low number? All the videos I’ve watched have guys getting legendaries by the bucket loads.
Anyway, sorry for the wall of text and thanks in advance.
