For quick reference in the mean time :


I’m pretty sure I ported over the DDD master.

For BL2? Im not seeing it, blut…

Must have been one of the ones I bitched about not being able to post because of that stupid cap.

Orange drops can come from any enemy, I got a legendary SMG from a skag.

What does that have to do with this topic?

Yeah I ported over finally.

I think they were just adding a random tid bit about loot. Mayhaps not quite understanding the meaning of this thread.


That’s what I assume also.

I see there are “top gear” threads for a couple of the characters now; could perhaps link to them?

I think we might do the same thing as last time and have those on a separate thread.

Ported this:

Just transferred thread from old forums (finally!):

Added Derchs red text weapon guide.

Added Derchs ultimate Bekah guide.
Thanks for making a couple new guides here lately @Derch. The BL2 Lootology has been a bit bare since we moved here.
