The whole point is that there is a discrepancy in Story Mode whether it is in Normal or TVHM mode.
In Story Mode on Nromal, Annointed are not introduced until you reach Jakob’s Manor. In Story Mode on TVHM, Annointed are already present. An oversight by Gearbox.
TVHM makes things harder. Then there is no in having TVHM Story Mode otherwise, other than to collect Unique mission rewards which are superseded by Legendaries and Annointed loot.
Story Mode on TVHM M3 becomes redundant and unnecessary other than collecting Unique blues to put in limited bank space you will need for other Legendaries. Or run a bunch of alts to Sanctuary and stop, so as to utilize their bag space.
The argument that “TVHM is for greater difficulty and loot”… well, we already have TVHM without needing to run through Story Mode on TVHM M3.
None of the Unique mission rewards come with Annointed perks as far as I know. I already have a level 50 Porcelain Grenade. Why do Story Mode on TVHM M3? There is no benefit.
The simple point is, in case missed it, is that GBX committed an oversight. I simply pointed it out.
Sirens = The 5th Element, everyone knows about the Atlas Zorg Guns, and The Destroyer is the ultimate evil from The 5th Element set to come out every 200 years. Why, they even have the pedestals and stones. Gbx did a great job of adapting The 5th Element to videogame while avoiding the IP and copyright issues.
GBX hopefully will patch their oversight of breaking their own story in regards to continuity and maybe even offer upgraded versions of the Unique mission rewards for completing story mode in TVHM M3. That would be nice, wouldn’t it? Of course it would.
For completeness of the game. B3 is 95% complete other than balancing. Fun game. It’s not the disaster of other releases of other games (thinking Fallout 76). B3 gets the 9.5/10 from me.
Simply fix the minor issues and figure out a way to balance the specs.
And hopefully they will take care of that scripting bug I found in Story Mode that broke one of their missions completely. Story-breaking AND GAME-BREAKING.
