I don’t think refarming in itself was that bad. The problem for me in refarming was just when the stuff that you want to farm for is a quest reward that can’t be obtained anywhere else. Either you need to get a good version of the stuff on the first try or you need to resort to dashboard farming on console or read-only farming on PC and let’s face it: that is just stuff that shouldn’t be happening. The rewards are so lucrative that you want them and them specifically but the only way to half reliably get them is to keep resetting your campaign and then go do this really boring save-quit or even restart-the-game farming. Red text guns shouldn’t be quest rewards or at least obtainable as drops afterwards.
Same thing could be said about the grinder in TPS that I never want to see again. The base idea is kind of ok but at the end of the day it’s the only real way of obtaining quite a few red text gear in the game and you know what happened? read-only and dashboard farming happened.
Having to go farm gear by actually killing enemies between a couple of OP levels was fun, for me at least. If we get a system for re-gearing parts in BL3 it will be even more fun because you can more readily get what you want instead of farming something for hours and still only getting a so-so version of it at the end of the day…
Another thing I had kind of a problem with in OP levels is that Digipeak even with it’s spawn variations just is too repetitive for me. Different areas for obtaining different OP levels would have been great, especially since Digipeak doesn’t have all different kinds of enemies.
Heck, could even make obtaining some OP levels different kind of quests like something along the lines of BA challenges where you get a list of things that you need to do a certain amount of to obtain +1 OP level that would just open up on max level so you could progress it naturally while going about your regular OP climb or just drop to the lowest OP level for a quick grind if you wanted it fast.
OP levels I do want back. The way OP levels are obtained I want more variation on.
Also I think it was said somewhere that the game already has some sort of a level sync that allows you to play with lower level players without steamrolling or ruining it for them so I think that’s under control.
