These are all good adjustments.

Especially the badass enemies. Try being in ffyl on mayhem 3 with multiple badass enemies. Cant see shit on the screen.

The increased hectoplasm drops is a god tier change.

You can get all 25 in the starting area of voracious canopy.

I had mayhem mode off and a loot ghost dropped the halloween shotgun but it's level 30 :(

So uh, yikes, we still waiting for that performance patch?? All I want is a stable 60 fps. Fuck. Being unable to get that even on Very Low everything with the decent rig I have is lame AF.

Have they said if they're looking at a reason for cash at endgame? Bc right now it's useless even with the slots.

So who else here was disappointed to not see S&S Munitions represented in BL3? They were my go-to brand for all of my Roland builds in the first game and have since been my favorite out of all of them. Someday they'll return...

Well haunt was still easy but he dropped a ghast call and a fearmonger my first kill of him after they increased his droprate.

I’m finding haunts drop rates to be shitty for me at the moment. Maybe I’m spoiled from all the other boss farming but I can go all the way through heck 2 or 3 times and not get a single legendary and even when I do it’s a regular legendary that’s just anointed with a terror stat.

This is playing on mayhem 3 with increased luck from my guardian ranks as well as an equipped artifact that “substantially increases luck”

On mayhem 3 last night one of my kills against him gave me 4 legendaries and the next gave me 0.

Holy shit, I am sick of these fucking ghosts. Just let me play the goddamn game.

Whoever decided that the event should just affect every aspect of the game is a nut. If you're going to do events that change the mechanics of the normal game, either make the event shorter or wall it off into specific areas or something. 90% of the enemies now have ghosts, so I'm spending half my time swatting flies. This sucks.

Yep

They made a good step forward with ghosts dropping more ectoplasm and reduced the chances of terrified annointments dropping from non-ghosts but it's still whack

Is it just me or is there just not a lot of music in the game? Im not far into the game yet but this keeps bugging me. Walking around in total silence is pretty boring. I think the older games had at least some ambient pieces playing

The only way to enjoy this game is with a podcast in the background.

Had this game a while and been playing it off and on. Feel like I’ve put probably 15 hours into it so I went to a walkthrough to see how far I am. I’m on mission 8 of 23! Makes me want to not bother.

I know people say to just mainline the main story but I’m dying a lot. Feels like I need to spend time leveling. So frustrating to die several times in the same place and just lose money.

Take your system offline then load the game, go back online once your play is loaded up. The event will be disabled until you go back to the main menu.

Are you dying a lot because the ghosts are ripping off your shields? I know they’ve made the game much harder in general.

Like most I have been frustrated by the lack of bank space. What I found a bit helpful is organizing my mules so that one will have pistols and shields, one will have assault rifles and SMG, and the other will have snipers and shotguns. That makes it easier to find duplicate/inferior versions of items to sell and also makes it easier to find things. It took a bit of time to set up (30 minutes or so), but now I feel better about knowing what I have and in total I think I was able to sell about 25 legendaries based on that.

I have no mules, would I like some guns in every element...maybe. but really each characters only has 1 or 2 viable builds for mayhem 3 and only a certain subset of weapons work for those builds. For now I'm not stressing about bank.

B1 and 2 were the same way. The series has always had really poor music/audio design in general.

Ugh I should do that

I wish getting to sanctuary didn't take so long

Do you leave the bank itself open like 10 slots so there are easier transfers or what

A lot can happen with patches both to the characters and the guns

Plus there aren't even raid bosses in the game yet

Blasphemy

Not really, although that would have been smarter. I switched a few times to rearrange things. On the plus side, I found that skipping all side missions makes it relatively fast to get to Sanctuary and then the bank and mailed items make it easy to buy backpack space.

There's some good music in BL3, especially in Promethea.
The problem is that even at 100, the music volume is too low to hear it with the constant sound effects and dialogue going on. I have to lower them to something like 40 to be able to hear the music most of the time.

I was just coming in to ask about this since grinding a new character to get an under leveled sellout has been a major pain in the ass thanks to the ghosts. Thanks.

Is melee Amara worth it? I'm still lvling her, but even with "Find your Center" and "Illuminated Fist", it still feels like I do more damage with a gun and that I should focus somewhere else instead like elemental damage.

It destroys later with the right build and gear

especially if you get a face puncher, that shit annihilates everything

I use it while leveling since it has such high survivability and melee does enough to finish someone off
Yup

I didn't switch to phasecast until level 50

You shouldn't take illuminated fist until after you get to Blitz


Can swap a few points in Clarity or One With Nature to Personal Space depending on how much you want to use guns.
