I just hit lvl 72 the other day and im farming for a new rough rider but i dont know when to “stop” as i cant find any info on what health boost is a “good” health boost? what is the max you can get on a lvl 72 rough rider? i currently have one with 308k boost.
Max stats is +366620 health on a 72 RR, with a Maliwan Body + Battery and a Hyperion Capacitor. Looks like this:
But I agree with @Giuvito, yours is perfectly fine, these extra 58k are not too bad. Also consider that getting a perfect Rough Rider is a ridiculously low chance. For a Hide of Terra for example it’s a 1/729 chance (=999) to get a perfect one (and that’s if you get one that is not underleveled to drop), for the Rough Rider it might be a little less because I don’t think it can spawn with certain parts like a Maliwan or Torgue capacitator for example, but even then the chances to get a perfect one to actually drop are very, very low.
well at least i now have a target to aim for, cheers.
previously i had a 301k RR and my health was sat at around 1.8mil, with the 308k it went up to about 1.9mil so i think the extra 50k odd will add quite a bit! as the RR adds to base health before % boosts from other stuff (if i remember correctly).
If you have a high level alternate character, (particularly Maya) it may speed up the mobbing portion. I found that killing all of the preliminary bullymongs to make Bulwark get out of his shell was so much quicker when the Missus was farming it for me then when I had to cycle through RTBs to get it.
I wouldn’t worry about it overly much unless you’re going to be doing the OP levels. If so, I would replace it about every 2 or so with one your level. I think mine’s a little over 9 mil @ OP 8, but it has perfect parts. Still, any extra health is worth it.
I got to OP7 yesterday with my trusty 72 Rough Rider.
But yeah to make things easier changing it every few levels is probably a good idea. I wouldn’t say every two levels but maybe once at OP4 and once at OP6.
The bonus health is awesome on OP levels to mitigate the StV self hit damage, but everything else is manageable with a Moxxi weapon for when you’re in the danger zone over 33 but under 50 % health I find.
@zub razi: hey 340k is good, I’d settle for it tbh, especially if the farm starts getting way too tedious and feeling like a chore.
Also, I’m not sure how many better variants there are between yours and a perfect one, but I’d be surprised if there was more than one. Maybe yours is second best even…
