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
Based on their talk about skillpoints, I don't think the level cap will go too much higher. Hopefully they instead allow for something like prestige points where you can increase the max level of skills you've maxed. That way you can increase power vertically instead of horizontally.

Maybe a new skill tree for each character too or some new abilities

Yeah I like that they're not gonna go to crazy absurd levels where you have too many skill points. 60 would be a good cap imo

This event seems simple compared to Bloody Harvest. Only need to pop balloons for rewards(instead of the more specific requirements of BH) and no special map or boss?

Really interested to see what they'll do with Mayhem 2.0. I don't really like Mayhem 3 when you're stuck with a bunch of negatives for your best guns and being forced to go back to the main menu to get something else, and Mayhem 4 is a bit too "bullet spongy" for my taste.

I just gave this a go for the first time, and I'm not sure I can put my finger on it, but I found myself going back to 1 & 2 pretty quickly to scratch that Borderlands itch. I just didn't enjoy myself.

I'm assuming the tentacles are the hint that theres gonna be a boss.

And yeah agreed 100% with mayhem 3/4 differences. Although my Amara and FL4K are well geared/built enough where I don't struggle even with all negative mayhem modifiers on 3 anymore.

Exactly, I only play mayhem 4 when I'm boss farming or maliwan take down when I'm damage stacking (I wonder if they are finally going to fix that?)

The +3 level should have came with the DLC imo. I enjoy leveling up more than being leveled up personally. Gives me a sense of progression

I'm not sure how to feel about a level increase. On one hand, this means my bank will be almost empty, so I won't have to manage it like I currently do, trying to get rid of duplicates or worst versions among the hundreds of legendaries I've got for a while(yay!). On the other hand, this mean I will have to farm all of this again for their lvl 53 versions(noooo).

New patch coming later today, including the new lvls and the limited event.

They're finally adding the missing head and skins from mission rewards, but looking at the patch notes, I'm pretty sure I'm missing more skins than 3 and I haven't seen any new ones dropping for a very long time, so I'm pretty sure I got all the world drops.

How's the menu performance for everyone else? Seemed instant after the initial load (tested outside agonizer) . Need to test online coop tho

When the patch goes live, the Guardian Rank system will be turned off by default, giving you a great opportunity to look through your perks to see if there’s anything new you want to try! Note: while the Guardian Rank system is turned off, you will not be able to gain ranks.

Me and my wife played through the campaign at launch on the ps4 pro. We now each have a pretty decent PC (2070super/i79700k). Would we notice a pretty significant improvement across the board starting this up on PC? Thanks in advance!

Didn't see anything about the brawler ward damage stacking getting fixed. Yay more M4 maliwan take down speed runs. Maybe I can't remote to the ps4 and get the patch downloading

Still shit on base PS4 as is the general endgame performance.

I also don't get raising the level cap while not adding any new content, such a weird decision. Are the new unique weapons added to the general pool as well? If not you'll get 2 weapons that are below level 53 by the time you get them (since thankfully this event doesn't require the grind of the last one) and aren't annointed.

The guns are lvl 53 when you unlock them, even if your character isn't.

Well, got my 5 Broken Hearts rewards, one of which is the Terminal Polyaimourous with a crazy roll for a Siren (after Phasecast 250% weapon damage). I'm bummed I don't play Siren!

Interesting, wonder if this is the end of the line with what base consoles can do. I still need to do more testing on pro myself.

QOL wise, is there anything we're really missing except build loadouts? They hit the major points with the most recent patch.

Wife and I decided to reset true vault hunter last night, after sorting inventory (both of us having major issues with the vendor interface) and lost loot from last session and ... nothing. Wouldn’t reset. We both restarted, hers reset, mine didn’t. I restarted three more times, still didn’t reset. Gave up and connected to her game, I’m of course not getting the quest Xp. Why does this game consistently hurt me.

I'm still going to farm for new gear for fun, but i can't say I'm really noticing much of a difference with my lvl 50 gear. I'm still absolutely wrecking everything.

I feel like I'm the only one constantly on M4 regardless of what I'm doing. I dunno, I just hate having to keep checking what negatives it's given me, M4 doesn't really ever give you any. Annointed on M4 though. That can die in a fire.

There's some weird issue with the vending machines since the patch, at least on PC... can't even select guns properly with my mouse to sell them, and the mouse wheel isn't working. Even rebooting the game doesn't fix it... Have to use the keyboard if I want to be able to sell them.

And damn... that shield has a lot of... shield. Especially for Moze. Almost make me want to remove my Transformer.


And this event is a blessing with the floating golden hearts. They almost always give a legendary.

I'm only 3 hours in and I love Moze, did I pick a good character?
If you like your mech, explosions, grenade spam, near infinite ammo and/or being hard to kill thanks to a shit ton of shield (think over 40k by max lvl), you're gonna like her. She's not as unique as the others, but I like her simple "in your face" style where I just shoot people in the face with my assault rifles while running all over the place.

I played Moze first, really liked her. Switched to Zane and was all Operative for quite awhile. Today I went back to my Moze and am loving her, so much fun and not really worrying about ammo is great. Honestly I don't use Iron Bear much though, only when I'm in a really tight spot. With Zane I'm just spamming his action skills constantly, totally different playstyle

Moze is great, lot's of fun and great voice acting

Anyway to fix this brightness glitch on Xbox one X? Sometimes when I exit the menu the games brightness is cranked to the max. Going in and out of the menu fixes it. It just happens to often and is really pissing me off as I just purchased the game.

I really like that sniper you get by popping 100 hearts, it's pretty damn strong. Sucks that the only way to "farm" it is by doing the challenges on another character. At least 100 hearts is easy enough to get.

If you have a chance, put a point into Specialist Bear(green tree) for 25% more Iron Bear damage if you use the same gun on both Iron Bear hands, and maybe some points into Stainless Steel Bear(blue tree) for more extra damage, and equip double Vanquisher Rocket Pods.

You won't expect to see so much damage, especially considering how weak Iron Bear was in the early months of the game. Everytime I come across a Badass or Anointed, I just use Iron Bear, they go down so much quicker with it.

Yeah I have a 100% iron bear build that I use with Moze that works really well for M3. Hoping they buff the other Iron Bear weapons as well though.

Y'know, I really wanted to have a Fade Away build but the Recursion is just way too good. So Rakk Attack for me it is

Does anyone know how to save-reroll on PC? That's what people are doing to get different anointments on their Wedding Invitations
