Commander Lillith and the Fight for Sanctuary DLC New Gear (WIP, please be kind.)

Credit to @Jefe for the idea, @Slif_One for the nudge that got me to open the thread, and @Enderborn1 for inspiring it with his love letter to the Sincero Amigo.

The aforementioned Ballad of the Sincero Amigo by @Enderborn1, because it should be required listening.

Maps of the new DLC, helpful for chest farming and route planning.

Some info concerning the Toothpick you may want to have a look at.

Intended to be a list of new gear introduced in the latest DLC. Hopefully with sources and special effects. This post will be essentially naked until I have a few extra minutes to start collating the data already in other threads. Feel free (and encouraged) to post submissions in this thread and I’ll try to update it as often as possible. (Free likes as I like every response in a thread I start.) Information considered pertinent for the purposes of this thread: gear type, source, element where applicable, special effect and red text. Help with formatting always appreciated.

List to be formatted and made pretty later. Effervescent unless otherwise labeled. (All information used is gleaned from the wiki. Any further info will be incorporated and credited moving forward.)

Not at my game, so I’m going off of memory, but the Infection Cleaner is literally a Fire-element Avenger that is available in Normal Mode and TVHM. The Sincero Amigo is not just a Trespasser on crack; it’s also the best Jakob’s Sniper in the game. It’s damage actually beats out the Skullmasher (previously the Sniper with the best Damage in the game), and all it’s other stats are better,as well. The Overcompensator is literally a talking Butcher, again available in Normal mode and TVHM. The Anti-Fection grenade dropped by Cassius is basically a Fire Bee, but instead of sending out missiles, it has a mirv effect, throwing out flaming shrapnel. Not sure if the shrapnel explodes or not, but it is extra damage. Finally, the Hector’s Paradise is just a Shock Hornet, complete with the same skin.


Linking @rja’s post from the other thread here so I have all of this in one place. Thank you @rja. I’ll start updating this post tonight.

A collection of character skins would be pretty cool too :wink:
Although on second thought maybe a separate thread would be wiser.

Also the wiki has already added a page for effervescents and has added the new legendaries to the leg page (but not sorted by DLC, so they’re in there with all BL2).

It doesn’t look like there are any new blue uniques?


I think the “Winter is over” incendiary relic may count as a blue unique, although I don’t know that there is a special effect. Either way it’s going on the list when I get there.

Good catch on the new wiki entries. I’ll be using those until they’re proven inaccurate. :+1:


Missing from the legendary page at the moment, but does have its own page, is the M2828 Thumpson, which is essentially a Hammer Buster after undergoing some serious weight training.


Basically, Effervescents are what Pearls want to be but fail to be. :wink:


I have had that thought once or twice since folks started finding them. Definitely the Infection Cleaner.


@Kurtdawg13 brought this to attention

Currently working on this :wink:


Me too. And added to the list. Thank you.

Just realized this means I need to go and get a mysterious amulet. Do you think the level of the amulet matters? I’ve probably got the ability to get it in UVHM on one toon or another, but if I can speed it up (or make it easier) by getting a normal mode one I might do that instead.




Cool. Still waiting until level 80 to grab it, and probably with Kriegtopher, but good to keep in mind.


Here’s a possible formatting suggestion :

Hector’s Paradise - The whip at the New Pandoran’s backs

  • Traits : shock element Dahl pistol with a melee attachment and the Hornet skin
  • Source : Echoes of the Past mission reward
  • Wiki entry

[color=orange] **Hector’s Paradise** [/color] - [color=#f44]The whip at the New Pandoran's backs [/color]
- **Traits** : shock element Dahl pistol with a melee attachment and the Hornet skin
- **Source** : *Echoes of the Past* mission reward
- [Wiki entry]('s_Paradise)

If you want to use that, copy and paste the code and remove the ` from the beginning and end of each line. Or we can get a mod to start a wiki/PM.


I like the way that looks, I’d love to use it. This is my first attempt at an informative/reference post and advice/help is very welcome.

I like the way this sounds, if you and/or anyone else is game. Otherwise I’ll try to edit in the code and reformat it later/in the nearish future. I just wanted to get it up there because guilt.


I don’t have the mysterious amulet anymore D:

Assuming you didn’t run the DLC in Normal, you could speed-run it. Should be quick.


I’m not sure which playthrough I did it on. I know I had it on my Axton when I installed the new dlc, but I sold it thinking I didn’t need it anymore, and on UVHM I apparently didn’t have any of the four older dlcs even started. I’ll have to check TVHM

I only ran the DLC in Normal once with my first Gaige, and I use her to farm level 30ish Magic Missile nades, so that speedrun is exactly the plan. When I’m ready for my Unicornsplosion that is definitely how I’m gonna do it.
