Whelp…did it! Solo. Took a Zer0 from Level 1 to OP8 and it has been quite a journey/learning experience.
A PAINFUL learning experience at times…LOL
Zer0 is sooooo different then Axton and even Maya…sooooo different. Breakthhrough for me was when I picked up DM and DB combined with Deception. Game Changers and in my mind, the absolute skill that makes Zer0 viable
Thank goodness for golden keys
Thank goodness for old mules
Thank goodness for Torgue Tokens
Thank goodness for Serif Chrystals
Thank goodness this is still an active forum with excellent advice
Thank goodness I am a stubborn SOB
Underleveled equipment is a death sentence after about OP3. Just bite the bullet and farm new Gear…Tinder Snowflake/Marcus’s train is superb for decent equipment and eridium…and the Mods are EXCELLENT including Legendaries.
Get a Grog…DO NOT complete the Beard mission in the Tiny Tina DLC
Lyudas on Zer0 are just the Cats Meow
You only need ONE Pimp…Slag
The DPUH with Zer0’s mods is just AWESOME
Bees are paper but there are places that they almost become a necessity.
Corrosive Sandhawk ALSO the cats meow
Topneaas…mixed with a Chaotic Neural Rogue are just…OP. And you can get them pretty easily from Marcus’s train
I found Magic Missiles the most useful overall grenade for slagging and healing (Grog in hand)
Chaotic Neutral Rogue = Game Changer
The ONLY AR Zer0 probably needs is a Seeker (Explosive Damage Relic REALLY makes it pop…add a Bee and WOW!
Be prepared to die a lot while you learn Zer0 and ESPECIALLY while you traverse the Peak.
OP1 = 1 death…stupid mistake on my part
OP2 = 2 Deaths
OP3 = 4 Deaths
OP4 = 4 Deaths
OP5 = 8 Deaths
OP6 = 18 Deaths (OP 6 was my “wall”…I was starting to get really frustrated)
OP7 = 11 Deaths (Re-farrmed better gear after about Death 5…seemed like I was hitting em with puff balls)
OP8 = 3 Deaths (I raided my Commandos for GREAT gear and ohhhhh, so much better…LOL)
Now off to do some Arenas and Raiding with Hattie, Ab, Gulf and some friends.
I’m interested to see if Zer0 will be a BEAST in my hands in the Magic Slaughter…or Suck.
Probably suck…not because of the character…because of well…me…LOL
