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

(Watcher on the wall) #4

(Min/Maxing and Flakker god) #5

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

(Dontgdown2) #6

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

(Min/Maxing and Flakker god) #7

What does that have to do with this topic?

(Min/Maxing and Flakker god) #8

Yeah I ported over finally.

(Watcher on the wall) #9

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


(Min/Maxing and Flakker god) #10

That's what I assume also.

(Vault Hunter, Guide, Forum Dad) #11

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

(Min/Maxing and Flakker god) #12

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

(Sheriff) #13

Ported this:

(Count Karloff) #14

Just transferred thread from old forums (finally!):

(Watcher on the wall) #15

@Kitty_Jo That link in the OP is missing the "http://oldforums.gearboxsoftware.com/oldforums/20150308093344/" part in the address to make it work. :slight_smile:

...doesn't sound as well the second time around :disappointed:

(Watcher on the wall) #21

Added Derchs red text weapon guide.

(Watcher on the wall) #22

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.
