While on the subject.
I’m one of those scrubs that doesn’t care too much about farming. More correctly, I don’t care about builds, ergo, I don’t care about farming. I couldn’t tell you what legendary does what. When I come across something that’s orange, I’ll read the description, maybe play with it. Try it one of the proving grounds, if it does well, keep it, if not sell it to Marcus. The build I use, is the build I have at the moment. I can do most areas on MH2. I’ve tried MH3, I can do it, just find it too monotonous. I can’t do the MTK on any level. That’s skill preventing me. I could spend an enormous amount of time building a YouTube build, but where’s the adventure. To me that sounds as much fun as putting together IKEA furniture. Basically follow some directions, put in some effort, and you’ll get what you want.
To me the thing that’s missing in BL3 is a sense of adventure. Anyone play TPS? There’s a weapon called the Excalibastard. Best weapon IMO in the history of BL lore. But you didn’t have to grind and grind. You just had to explore the worlds. It was just slightly hidden out of you. The one stipulation was you had to have enough Badass points, or Guardian Rank, in BL3 parlance.
To me one of the most exciting things in BL3 were the adventures. Zero’s ‘enemies of opportunities’ and Hammerlock’s ‘big game hunts’. Looking at a map and seeing an unexplored area, that’s where the fun is. Remember looking for Vault symbols? The Typhon logs and Typhon Drops were fun. The Crimson Radio challenges bordered on monotonous due to the “how do I get up there” nature. Especially when falling, you could fall into the void. I’m looking at you Anvil.
Having said all that, it’s difficult to change that. Once you’ve played through, you know where everything is. But they could hide an Excalibastard, or other legendaries. Make them truly unique, not just another orange. I know a lot of people on here are complaining about loot drops. Me not so much. Going through the Casino on MH2, in an hour had for oranges drop??? Again, I get it if you’re a builder, for me, it’s kind of cool, but at the end of the day. Give me more adventures and less grind.
I’m too lazy to edit, so if there’s a mistake…
