Hello fellow Vault Hunters!
I am a rapidly approaching middle age type of dude, may i ask your indulgence to briefly introduce my general situation and background before asking for some pointers. PS4 player by the by, before any further rambling. So, I was quite a veteran at Borderlands 1, me and 3 of my friends would commonly LAN together, but I haven’t been playing BL2 for longer than a couple of months. Had the game for over a year but was on a League of Lengends kick and basically forgot i had a console… But i digress.
My first attempt was Gaige but I got her to level 50 and realized i had relied far too much ob Deathtrap once i got to UVHM. So i have Maya level 80 finally as of Thursday. OP 1’d so far. My gear is a mixed bag, , and due to my brand new newbiness, i am uncertain of how to proceed with furthering my progress. So far by the best DPS I’ve been able to muster is with the. Toothpick/Mouthwash combo, which is rather sad since i have outleveled some amazing items on my playthrough. Generally I’ve run L.Siren as it’s the only legendary COM I’ve been able to get consistently so far :\ , and my skill tree seems mostly unremarkable to me. I don’t know how to screen shot but I’ve 36 in Motion (no capstone), playing around with Fleet atm but not deadset on maintaining… 28 on Harmony with +3 in Lifetap and 5 in Elated as the two apex skills of that tree… Again unsure if i intend to keep them. Other than that of course I have the typical Cataclysm tree w 4/5 in Immolate. Willing to tinker with it as needed Fleet seems fun but not practical in a lot of areas. So there’s an overly long synopsis on the Skill tree at the moment.
I apologize if my post is inappropriate due to some obscure etiquette or my senility, but onto the meat of this questionable feast… I’ve struggled quite a bit in UHVM, even with Ruin for EZ Slag, Converge, and other Siren part 2 hijinx. Only lately have I felt as if i am beginning to get basic things fown, such as what mob to PL, duck and cover strategies, hell even moving my visibility to 100 from 70 as default… I had to cheese the warrior on TVHM, Hector, that silly “raid boss” at the end of Captain Scarlett, and other notable “cheesable” fights, my to my chagrin. I can’t beat Terra or Invincible Douche Pete despite about 10-20 attempts so far. I have some alright OP1 gear but the prospect of reframing for advancing OP levels has me uncertain…
Hard Unkempt Harold, Toothpick, Cutting Edge Bitch, Potential Butcher, and an Energizing Fibber are the guns i regularly carry, and i have some “okay” OP 1 stuff in the bank. A Maggie, a Corrosive Norfleet, a Restricting slag Conference Call, Plump Kerblaster, and a truly awful gun I’m pissed i grinded for called a Swift Hail (slag) x(. Carry a Bee and Neogenator as my go to shields only here lately, before that i was stuck on Turtle Shields for the majority of my BL2 hours. Is there any “good farms” to recommend, skill setups, etc to help me solo Terra and Pyro Pete BEFORE i reset playthru?? I dont have s Firehawk anymore mine was level 65 or so and had no Element besides. Idk how I’m gonna manage to farm elemental variants no pimpernal either though i do have a Fire Lyuda banked as well as a Hot Mama.
This is my first forum post ANYWHERE even Reddit i appreciate y'alls kind indulgence in any advice :)
