1st off, Sorry for the long read.
Since last we met…
Somehow during a very busy summer/fall, I spent my time reaching level 72 UVHM. I avoided taking on any quests or story line so not to get anything less than a 72 item. Once reached I’ve been slowly working my way trying for the specialty weapons. Been farming the train in Tinkertown and the red chests improving the stats on my weapons with the occasional nice red lettered or legendary item.
I got the Grog (and didn’t turn it in)
Here’s the highlights of my inventory:
-Lvl 72 Berzerker class mod
-71 Longbow bonus pkg expl grenade (I think this is the one I got from a locker in Sanctuary HQ)
-72 Lobbed fire bee 165801 dmg/sec
-69 ‘Impaler’ shield corrosive spikes
-72 misles Gub and a 71 double Misles gub corrode pistols. (back to back in a red chest in Tundra)
-71 Earnest Logan’s gun fire pistol
-49 Bee shield (sold it, waiting to get newer. Not using it)
-50 Slayer of Terramophous mod
-50 Casual Flakker +320%
That’s it for those.
Red lettered items:
-lvl 67 ‘Rough Rider’ +20% dmg resist
-60 Capt Blades Orphan maker +850% dmg
-72 ‘Deadly bloom’ Expl Nova
-72 ‘Lightning Bolt’
-72 Shock Fuster Cluck (sentimental)
-72 Corrosive Tea Pot. 106122 dmg/sec (better than the 2 Dubs) haven’t tested it much.
-50 magic missle. rarely in back pack.
Got a 72 blood and a 71 Bone of the ancients relics back to back from 2 LLM’s
Don’t get to use them much as I’m dependent on my FFYL +31% 2nd wind +149% Combo relic.
My Elemental LMG’s are of the Blaster type.
Reg Sniper Skokum Calipeen 428696 Dmg
Other snipers close to that.
Best RL Expl 3899646 dmg. Elementals in the 2M+ range and 30-47%
I switch shields a lot but normally wear a Purple Turtle 895K cap
I just picked up a Corrode and then a Shock immunity shields.
For ‘normal’ battles I tend to use this group:
72 Casual Hulk Expl shotgun (was using a very fast 69 Fire shotgun until replaced by a 71 Gentle shotgun supreme)
72 SMG Stopping plasma caster 18% slag …(That combo got me through most battles.)
3rd slot is mixed depending on need. Been putting the Grog in here a lot.
72 Reg sniper
FFYL/2nd wind relic
Leg Berzerker mod
71 Longbow bonus pkg expl grenade
Turtle shield, But switch with others often.
Soooo…If you’ve got this far. Given my inventory, Ok, Stop laughing…
Anything you’d suggest as better combo’s?
Should I dump the old lvl 50 legends?
Some areas I get through decently, Some are VERY tough.
I beat Pistol Pete and yet no Seraph crystals or did he drop anything decent.
(I assume I have to go beat him again now for those?)
Now, Motor Mama kicked my azz. Lvl 74 with an insane recharge rate. Thanks Gearbox.
So that story line is stalled until I figure out a better attack.
I’m still after the main story to get all those specialties. A better Bee, etc.
For now I’ll go after red chests, The train and even LLM’s in Tundra and possibly the WEP.
I’ve seen vids (from 2013) where you could farm them and as long as you don’t collect the recorders get 3-4
LLM’s to appear in that room. And then a vid on how it was patched and no longer farmable.
Which is it?
Thanks for any input.
