What a great list of fixes!

#RESPAWNABILITY=DONE

Looks like I 'm going to have to fix Claptrap’s Celestial Fragtrap myself.

Good list. I wonder why Tony Slows respawns. He doesn’t even attack you. Or does he?

Finally found the list of bosses that did not respawn.

Looks like we got everyone, except Flame Knuckle, who is in the holodome anyway, and Zarpedon, whose lootpool got added to the sentinel.
Very pleased with this.

It would be a first step if at least we got a shift codes to get some of class mod. Sure it’s not ideal, but at least there would be a way to obtain one in legitimate ways.

He doesn’t attack you, but you can attack him.

I’m noticing a lack of Storage Deck Upgrade fixes in the patch notes though. :worried:

Also, why not make Iwajira respawn too? Its really annoying for CoOp to have to exit and relaunch the host to farm him.

Here’s a copy/paste of it:

March 24, 2015

General

The following bosses will now respawn when a player exits and re-enters a map:

  • Tiny Destroyer

  • Tony Slows
  • Drongo Bones
  • Meg
  • CLAP-L3K

Hmmmm. What? I guess it’s saying we can’t moonstone grind purple weapons to legendary. But it looks like we’ll still be able to normal grind purple weapons to maybe legendary but more likely purple.

“Players will no longer retain “slowed” state when taking cryo damage from multiple sources.”

Finally.

I was hoping to see something about “players will no longer retain slowed state after dying while frozen”. Is that what it it really means?

That would be correct.

Goodbye Athena.

Various CPU performance optimizations.

I hope this fixes the enemies like those bats that sometimes in certain spots get stuck in the ground or the wall. And will sometimes just stop fighting you and stay in place.
