Today I took a plunge i’ve been putting off for a long time and dived into the Peak. I decided i’d try it with Salvador first, so that if I struggle with others, I can use him to farm them gear.
I completed OP2 with my existing 72 gear, I did notice it was probably going to be too difficult in a couple of levels time judging by it taking me gradually longer to deal with things, so I am now farming a new Harold at OP3.
Because I unlock OP3 after completing OP2, does that mean I actually only have to complete up to OP7 to access OP8? Also what kind of gap in item farming would you guys recommend? I’m alternative between DPUH/Grog and Nukem/Slag Pimpernel for the larger enemies/surveyors. I feel like I might be able to complete OP3 Peak with this stuff, but beyond that I may need new things. Is that consistent that I will probably not need new stuff until maybe OP6-7?
Any and all suggestions around gear are welcome.
Also, due to the nature of using the Nukem and Pimp together, am I right to assume I only really need to farm a new Nukem, because the Pimp takes on the stats of the Nukem?
