the average runs to get a perfect legendary pistol in borderlands 2 is about 7(prefix)8(grips) 10(Drop rate). which is equal to 560run
the average runs to get good annointment in borderlands 3 is about 10(Drop rate)*0.7 (annointed drop rate , no confirmed number)*65(total annointment). which is equal to 455
but the difference is that theres very few useful annointment , if youre not getting that specific annointment , it simply dont work well . on borderlands 2 , you can get away with just a matching grip , which significantly reduce the farming , either matching or no it still very good anyway
Rakk build without rakk or ase annoint. gamma burst build without gamma burst annoint. fakegrasp without ase annoint . Zane without sntnl ot barrier annoint .
i mean sure u can u still work it out but the performance gonna drop heavily , its not like youre losing some reload speed for larger mag with a bandit grip , its more like flat out losing 100% damage , its huge deal.
the true reason we felt no matter how much we farm we wont get the drop is because literally theres like 3 4 for each character that actually viable .
