@Th3solution But you’re so close!

Playing as a commando has made my play through so much easier than when I previously played as a gunzerker as the turret acts as a pseudo-second player. Having the slag ability from the top of the first skill tree is also immensely helpful and has got me out of a lot of difficult situations as a solo player.

@Thrillho I’ve enjoyed the Siren for its health boosts, emphasis on healing and survivability, and the ability to phaselock the stronger foes temporarily disabling them for easy potshots. It works well for the BA and stronger enemies. It was great for the dragon too since there is minimal aiming and I had trouble hitting it with my guns with it flying about at a distance and constantly moving. What it doesn’t do well for is crowd control, which the turret would definitely be better for in these last areas.

The other frustrating thing about the TT DLC is that despite it having some of the harder combat and map/dungeon navigation, I haven’t found many good weapon upgrades despite my efforts. The weapon drops and chests are appropriately leveled close to my current level (I’m currently 38) but their stats aren’t better than my prior level 32-35 equipment I got from the end of the main campaign. If there was some sweeter weapons, shields, and upgrades then it would be a little more satisfying. Even a couple times I splurged on the dice chests for a double roll and still didn’t get much that was compelling. So I’d rather save my eridium if it’s gonna be that way. Granted I had some really great stuff already from the main campaign, but I’m nearly through with the whole DLC and only one legendary drop for a grenade with stats that are still kinda ho-hum in comparison to what I have. Hopefully there is some great rewards at the end.

@Th3solution The Tiny Tina DLC is a bit annoying in places, do stick with it though as the story has a better ending than the base game.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Th3solution Yeah, I'm lvl39 and I don't think I've hung on to any of the gear I've picked up. The gun that fires swords is cool though!

I just spent 90 minute trying to find my way out of the Lair after failing so miserably at the raid boss. The map and mini-map are so useless on multi-level areas.

I hope you give it another go though; I need a raid buddy to get that last DLC trophy

Just got through Krom's Canyon myself today. Also had a Hellfire drop from a normal bandit which I was super excited, to bad it's a level 30 though it's still such a great gun for Lilith.

@Thrillho @Gremio108 I’m bound and determined to finish it, but probably won’t get back at it for a few days.

I finished the Hammerlock DLC today and it was pretty meh really. I think I spoilt myself by playing the Tiny Tina one first though. This was much shorter and the main story much less interesting but did involve a character from the Pre-Sequel (even though his first appearance was in this DLC).

One frustration though was that the armoury you reach at the end of the DLC has loads of loot crates which is way more than you can carry but the area is locked out once you leave the map

I think I've almost had my Borderlands fill so I'm going to go straight to the new DLC and then call it a day. It doesn't help that the game seems to have capped things at lvl30-35 for the DLC when I'm above that. Enemies are still tough but give next to no XP any more and the only gun upgrades I've had have been from using golden keys.

@Thrillho Yeah I've had my Borderlands fill for now. Probs won't get the third game at launch now and wait till a bit later when I've got the itch back again.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

@JohnnyShoulder Did you play Fight For Sanctuary? I'm only fifteen minutes in and it's already tying into the Telltale game (sort of)..

Thrillho

JohnnyShoulder

@Thrillho Ah no not yet. Totaly forgot about that tbh. I started a level 30 character with the intention to, but was too deep into the Pre-sequel. I loved Tales, probably my fave Telltale game.

Well, that was over quickly.

I'm also a bit indifferent to this one. The story was a bit all over the place but I did like that Vaughan from the Telltale game made an appearance. There was also a reference to Scooter's death from the Telltale game which I'd forgotten about. The new loot tier was useless to me because of the level cap so the gear was worse than anything I already had.

It was good to have the main cast altogether again but there wasn't anything particularly special here. The ending was also a bit odd and I'm not sure if it'll be of any consequence as they lose the vault key which seemed a bit of an odd thing to completely undo the ending of the main game.

This was fine as a freebie (at the time I got it) but I wouldn't recommend spending money on it.

Started the Fight for Sanctuary DLC tonight, I am playing Maya, my son is playing Kreig. Wanted to start it up and finish it before BL3 comes out in a few days, that and the BL hype is going crazy for me. Anyone know how long this DLC is time wise?

First time through its pretty decent length, but you easily have time to finish it before the 13th.

@Tasuki finished it in 1 sitting, about 4 hours or so. Didn't do every side mission but was overall a pretty short slice

I am really enjoying the Fight for Sanctuary DLC. I really like how they tied everything up with BL2, and Tales from the Borderlands and then introduce us to 3. They did a great job.

@Tasuki I had completely forgotten that Scooter died in Tales. A nice send off for him though.

So apparently they are making a Borderlands movie. Hopefully they based it off the second one. Still given how games translate to movies I am worried.

So quick question I hope someone can answer this. I never got around to playing the Dragon Keep DLC on the Handsome Collection however they have it as a stand alone now. I remember back with the DLC you need to be a minimal of level 30 to stand a chance but how does that work with the Stand alone? Do they automatically boost you to level 30 or is everything downgrade to level 1??

Just wanted to know before I purchase it.
