You can get a lot of good stuff quite easily after resetting. Pimpernel and Sandhawk take some effort to get to, but it’s not too much of a hassle to do it a few times. Knuckledragger is an easy farm for a Hornet. Provided you have Torgue tokens and Seraph crystals, you can go to Torgue land and farm the first Torgue machine you see for a DPUH. In Flamerock Refuge you can get the Antagonist and one step into the Forest you can farm Treeants for the Bee. The train in Merc day HH-pack is also easy to farm.
Joining a Co-op game and ask if you can keep the items you seek is also an option, but not as easy to get the other players to save and quit if you’re not happy with the items.
And last but not least… Trading!
As long as you only rely on grenades for healing with Grog/Rubi, or crowd control, you should be fine with your level 72 gear. Same goes for COM’s and relics.
