The cynic in me thinks they're just juicing us ahead of making everything we get obsolete with the cap increase, but I don't see them reverting most of these changes.

Lile bl1 and bl2 they need to put class mod that give bonus to allies like action skill cooldown, reload speed , better accuracy,increase fire rate etc and maybe have sets like if you have all torgue weapon equip you get a bonus or skill point , i hope that we get anew skill tree for each characters if we dont get new characters

I was doing a little bit of farming of Gigamind today on Mayhem 4, holy shit I was getting 3-4 legendaries dropping from him (sometimes 5) and 2 or 3 in the red chest every time. I had most of them but there were a couple of keepers in there, I'm guessing just because of sheer numbers

I'm knee deep in the Cistern of Slaughter red chest glitch. Getting around 100+ legendaries every 15 minutes (although 90% are things I don't want/need). By far the easier and fastest cheese to get Legendaries until they patch it.

Oh man.

Go to the Cistern of Slaughter. Flip the switch to start the first round. Immediately turn around, run towards the back wall, jump up on a little ledge and step into the corner of it. The game bugs out and counts doing that as having completed the entirety of the Circle and spawns a red chest on the other side of the area. Run back to the switch, flip it again, repeat, and it'll spawn another chest, which glitches and overlays on the one that's already there. Do this endlessly, although around 40 chests the game starts to freak out. Seems like there's a dedicated loot pool for that particular chest, but the Maggie is included in it if you're looking for something good.

Once you open the chest(s), you have to exit out of the game and load back into the Cistern to keep doing it again...and again...

I really want to try this glitch out, but I'm approaching max inventory and bank space. All that loot will just got to waste.

I tried going back to an explosion build for Moze yesterday for M4 after doing an infinite ammo/no reload Vladof build for so long...

I regret it soon after. With how long it takes to kill enemies in M4, never having to reload is a blessing and I kill faster than an explosion build anyway since most of what I have are pistols with low magazines so I'm reloading too much to appreciate it. Switched back to my infinite ammo build.

The spiritual driver builds ain’t really my play style, despite how effective they are. The whole looking at the ground and not actually using my action skill is a turn off.

I get it’s effective but I also like shooting shit.

I don't have spiritual driver yet but even the build I'm using relies on "fakegrasping" to build action skill end buffs and I hate it.

Gonna start the game up tonight. Thinking of FL4K as I enjoy minion classes. How viable is that end-game? One thing I hate is when minions become absolutely trash as you start farming late content...

tried it, already patched :( even the backup strat was patched too. Damn was hoping to use this to catch up, at least get enough money to max out the new bank sdu's for me.

Is there some updated loot list for legendaries somewhere? I really would like to get multiple variations of the Shredifier for my Moze, but I've been stuck with my Non-Anointed Cryo one forever all I can seem to find is that it's a world drop, but no mention of rares or bosses that might have better chance of dropping it.

Ah, that's a bummer. If it's any consolation, the loot pool for that chest wasn't super awesome unless you wanted a Maggie of a specific roll.

Damn they patched the slaughterhouse red chest glitch. I haven't had any chance to play this event. I'll have to hit up YouTube for some good farming routes

It's the worst of the 3 options (others being Rakks or Fade Away) but it's not absolute trash either.
I've been playing around with Fade Away. Seems fun. I decided to streamline the story versus doing all the sidequests. There is a ton if stuff to see and do, but I'll likely be leveling every class at some point, so I don't want to burn out on all those.

About to start the game, what do you guys think is the most fun character to play as? Not looking for the most OP/viable one, but the most enjoyable in terms of gameplay/wrecking shit. Been thinking about going for Amara

Any recommendations on good Moze builds? I haven't played in a long time but want to get back into bl3. I know when I played Moze's mech was pretty useless late game but has received buffs. Just not sure what is good anymore to build around.

Thanks.

Try something like this(there's 2 points that you can put wherever you want, as soon as you got Forge and Vampyr) : Moze skills
As for gear, you'll at least need the Bloodletter Class Mod(Shield gets healed instead of your HP) and the Deathless Artifact(Increase shield by 100% but reduce HP to 1). The Bloodletter Mod also always come with Thin Red Line, Desperate Measures and Phalanx Doctrine, which help increase your shield even more and even add some extra damage thanks to your 1 HP. The Transformer Shield is still the best I believe.

With these 2 items, and the Vampyr + Means of Destruction skills, you will have a lot of shield and it'll be easy to keep it up by throwing grenades, which often gets refunded.

And with the Bottomless Mags skills, you'll literally never run out of ammo and very rarely reload. I recommend using Vladof guns such as Shredifier, Lyuda, Dictator and whatever you want for the 4th one. They work the best thanks to their huge magazine and quick fire rate. I don't think I ever seen myself reload a Shredifier since I have a magazine of over 130 and the ammo regenerate so fast.

With all the buffs that Iron Bear got in the previous patchs, it can be pretty strong(at least in Mayhem 3, haven't tested it in Mayhem 4 yet). The double Vanquisher Rocket Pods + Specialist Bear skill can kill a lot of badass and bosses pretty quickly and Iron Bear will usually last the whole duration with the Vampyr skill. It hasn't been updated on the website, but splash damage with Vampyr also heals Iron Bear now.

Is there a fast way to level alts on PC?
This works for any platforms, but I'm currently helping my girlfriend with her alt by playing with my lvl 50 in Coopetion mode(every enemies is lvl 50, even for her) and Mayhem 3. She lvl up pretty fast, I got her a few lvls around lvl 30 with 5 rounds of Slaughter Shaft. I think doing the Slaughter maps is the best since she can just hide in a corner while I keep killing everything in sight with the constant waves of enemies. Although I guess killing bosses like Graveward probably works too.

Of course, all this require that you know someone who also play this game. :P

There's probably some exploit I guess to make it even faster, alone, but never really bothered looking into it.

I'll probably check out of the of the discord groups to see if I can arrange a similar setup. I'm just rushing the story right now. Figure I'll mess with sidequests on max level playthroughs when the rewards might actually be decent.

Finally got radiation and cryo Redistributors. This gun is already one of my favorites. I'm just destroying everything with my Fl4k build. All I need now is a recurring hex with the right anointment.

Is there a list of what anointments (or red text) do?
I use the Borderlands wiki. Just search for what you need.


Edit: Or use the doc from the poster above.

Agreed on the Deathless/Bloodletter build. I'm running Mayhem 4 solo with my Moze build. You just need the right weapons with the right rolls. Transformer is a great shield for this build if you're taking on lots of shock damage dealing enemies, but I tend to go with any purple shield I can find with a capacity over 13,000 (I've yet to find a Transformer with a capacity more than around 11,500). I use an anointed Dastardly Maggie and a shock infused Cutsman exclusively. My shield totals are around 55,000.

Damn guy! Maybe go through and get rid of some shit? I don't know how much more we can expect them to expand the bank space, as it's already pretty damn large at this point!
Yeah, I'm around 180, and that's with literally every legendaries and sometimes a copy with a different element. Not sure how you can get to 300 and still feel like you need more space. Maybe don't have 4 variations of a single legendary? :P

Lots of changes in February patch


Interesting only raising the cap by 3 levels.
Makes sense cause I think rn to get 2 capstones you'd need 3 additional points

So now you'd be able to get 2 capstones with no extra points anywhere else

Also holy shit they're actually letting you disable specific guardian rank perks! I thought that was just a pipe dream, my melee amara is still gonna be possible!

And skippable cutscenes and more guardian rank perks and more, thisnis great
