Hi everybody! Long time lurker and have appreciated all the posts and tips in the old forum.
I thought I’d start fresh here and sign up.
Where I’m at: Lvl 65 with Sal, I’ve now into UVHM after playing through the 1st 2 levels.
Here’s my issue: I’ve always played solo, and have ‘decent’ weapons but few legendaries.
I’ve had to be many levels higher than the bosses to even have a chance in TVHM.
I still haven’t gone back to take on Voracidous and forget about Hypervious.
Currently I’ve been in UVHM and been leveling and bettering my weapons slightly in Hunter’s Grotto
and Marcus’s Mercenary going after the red chests and general battles.
I have finally been using the BEE-DPUH combo to get through most battles quickly.
Although It didn’t do much to Tinderbox and ended up having to beat him from up on the steps.
I do know how important slag is in UVHM.
My skill tree has always been good I think because of the Skill tree calculator link in the old forum.
Thank you for that!! It’s actually about 4 levels higher than where I’m at. I would think that’s good.
Now when I try to continue the story line in UVHM I still have trouble getting past Boom and Bewm,
Even tho a few times have got past but not quite to the boss.
I started the game last year in Jan, Didn’t get the DLC’s until last fall.
By then I was lvl 52 and played as TVHM and anything dropped from the bosses was worthless.
Now I can only get so far in those at UVHM until I’m stuck, That’s why I continue trying to level and better weapons.
I never knew about NOT turning in missions for various benefits like keeping a weapon, Farming ability, etc.
Things like that.
It just feels like I’ve made the game more difficult than it needed to be by just jumping in and learning along the way.
I know co-op would have helped but I’m 53 and the few people I know don’t game like I do.
But also until recently I didn’t have a mic/headphones for communication and I did try a random co-op server
for a bit but again, Not being able to communicate made it hard to get anything done.
Anyhow, Sorry about the long post. I still like the game but wonder if it’s pointless where I’m at to get anywhere further.
I don’t really want to start over at this point with Sal or another character.
