This seems ridiculous, I know, but after completing the main story and a DLC with an alternative character, I must have accessed TVHM. When I reaccess him and specify normal mode, I still start in Windshear Thingy, and seem to be unable to go anywhere else via the station there but to a DLC start. So I went to Hammerlock’s Hunter’s Grotto, quit, and restarted. I want to be in normal mode because I wanted to see the HG anyhow, and get a Rough Rider there before going into TVHM.
I am not sure, however, if I am in normal mode. I was told that the areas of the DLC are 30 or 35 max. My character is 36, and everything I see here is leveled 36. I find it more challenging than I would have expected for an overleveled character. But I have no way of seeing, in game, if I am playing TVHM or NVHM – or is there?
