Good day fellow vault hunters. I am trying to figure a way I which I can make the Borderlands game system and the way I like to experience games meet in the middle. So, I turn to you experts.
I love doing all the quests and DLC in Borderlands 2. I get the most enjoyment out of exploring the world, and experiencing the journey rather than rushing to the end. The fist character I played I took the advice of others and started UVHM at level 50. But, a small part of me died inside knowing that there was so much that I could have been doing still in TVHM. Now that I have Borderlands 2 on my PS3 (rather than just on my Vita) I decided to start another Mechromancer. She is making her way through TVHM now.
What I would love to do is complete all the content in TVHM before starting UVHM, but all the warnings about starting UVHM at level 55 (or so) are in the back of my head. so, I am wondering what my options are.
I have tried to look at how the Golden keys work in TVHM, but I received contradictory answers. If I use them in TVHM at a level greater than 50 does the items in the chest spawn at my level, or are they capped at 50 ( just as the rest of TVHM is)? If they spawn at my level in TVHM then maybe I can solve this problem by using my keys (I have over 50) in TVHM before starting UVHM.
Another thought I had was to unistall all the DLC that increases the level cap, but I wonder if that will in an way screw up my current save. If I delete all the DLC content and then reinstall everything except those that increase the level cap will that screw my current mechromancer save up? I wonder that as the mechromancer is a DLC and not part of the main game. if I were to take this route what all DLCs would I need to leave uninstalled? Is it just the 2 upgrade packs (does raid on Digistruct Peak also supply the level cap increase?)? I have all story DLCs, headhunter packs, and skins (thanks to the awesome triple pack).
Any thoughts and advice from others would be greatly appreciated.
