Item Finds of the Day


#1708

A couple finds from Athena, one from a chest, the second from the grinder. They’re in Spanish because Pickle is much less annoying that way.

First tps legendary on my ps4


Not the best parts, but that doesn’t matter


(I stopped moving and the orphans caught me. Tannis was right.) #1710

The vendors have been generous on this run (didn’t buy/couldn’t afford either of them, but still nice to see)…

…ok, so this last one’s a chest, but still…

First time up against UVHM Zarpedon was profitable…

…some folks apparently aren’t too fond of the ZX-1 but it’s been working well for me so far, but admittedly the Bulwark and an 3DD1.E help it along some. Getting the lvl 53 ZX-1 was a lucky drop for sure, since my lvl 50 version (the one from the chest, posted earlier) was beginning to struggle a bit. I’m now debating taking the 50 and a lvl 35 I have in storage to the grinder…or not.

World drop lvl 56 badabom from a kragon before iwaj. Mag size prefix, matching grip, and explosive.
Add a perfect lvl 56 gatling gun to this

More recent goodies from the vendors…

  • EDIT - I see things like these and always wonder about buying…on one hand, cool gear. OTOH, expensive gear at a low level, and how long will it be viable? I bought the Nasty Surprise and it easily carried me thru Felicity Rampant, and I can store it for another character when it’s too under-leveled to be used further. The Boomacorn was tempting but there’s the level thing and draining most of my on-hand cash.

#1714

I’d say buy. You have a level 53ish character, so if your lower level characters need cash, just have Athena drop some trashy whites or greens in the stash for them to sell.

On topic: I’m guessing this is a rare(ish) head (dropped from the Bosun)

Boomacorn on jack with 10 or 11/5 AA is so good. The horse noises well you can mute those

On high-lvl characters, the buy decision is easier and I have bought things that were just too good to pass up (I remember finding a lvl 30’ish 3DD1.E in a vendor that I could not just walk away from). It’s the low-lvl (ie, NVHM) high-end red text stuff that makes me stop and think about buying or not…if I’d found that Boomacorn in UVHM, even early on, I’d have bought it in a second. In NVHM/TVHM tho, I focus more on character development and less on high-end gear that didn’t come from a drop or reward.

Speaking of (I bought it, btw)…

This is the second one I’ve taken from a vendor. Wish I had this kind of RNG in BL2.


#1718

A disappointing drop from Iwajira:

The silliness continues (I passed on this one)…


(The Bearer of Pie and Best user of English) #1720

Killed ecplise/eos at lvl 67, dinged lvl 68 after the fight. Got a lvl 68 docs flayer :heart_eyes: Hyperion stock perfect, but torgue grip, so not the best, but could be worse. Add a lvl 70 flayer, aka grinder fodor. And a lvl 70 skullmasher both from E/EoS


#1721


Like the Neo, I’m unsure of this. Capacity comparable to wet tissue paper doesn’t look good, but maybe the regen makes up for it? I don’t know… Hard to see any of my VHs using it though - Jack has pretty much outleveled it already; Athena wants high capacity with her great shield regen skills; Aurelia … maybe?

Since I don’t have the shock drop arena, it’s my shield for Claptrap. It’s legendary effect actually has pretty good synergy with his kit.


(SEATTLE - 12 - SEAHAWKS) #1723


So very close :disappointed_relieved:


(Berserker) #1724


(The Bearer of Pie and Best user of English) #1725

Since tps doesn’t have a fails thread I’ll just say
Another lvl 69 shooting star


(I stopped moving and the orphans caught me. Tannis was right.) #1726

Found this after a Kraggon mob…

Question - the grinder obviously works, even tho I have not accepted Janey’s TVHM quest to repair it. Is there a reason to re-do the quest in TVHM and then again in UVHM, or is a fixed grinder a fixed grinder regardless?
