    Speaking of oranges, I just found my very first immediately after equipping a +2 rare items Catalyst mod.
    Spoiler:

    Hum, I just realised my Firefly mod is terrible - this whole time, I've been convinced I had a great class mod & was selling off everything I found without even bothering to compare them.

    It's insane.

    I'm afraid I may forget how to shoot things after using this bird so much.

    My Bloodwing is so insane, I'm actually scared to spec anything else. So even though I just got this great orange repeater I'm afraid to step away from the tremendous power of the mighty Bloodwing, who smites motherfuckers with great intensity and frequency.

    I can't bring myself to spec into the birdie. I wanna spec Sniper/Gunslinger but I'm thinking I'm gonna give in and be Sniper/Birdie.

    so, class mods that add skill points to certain skills, do I have to already have a point in that skill for it to take affect?

    Speccing into birdie gets old after you beat the game. I ended up going Gunslinger/Hunter just cause the 2nd playthrough enemies kick our ass so hard.

    Sooooooooo, I just fought the Rakk Hive.

    There sure are a lot of vagina monsters in games lately. Which makes me think some people are a little too afraid of the female body.
    Or know my ex's.

    Is there a pair of boob monsters later in the game?

    As a form of protection against data loss while playing multiplayer, some clever people have created batch files which automatically backup and date your save folder, then run the game. Only problem is the ones I've encountered use a lot of hard coded paths which don't work reliably for everyone. I've created a modified version which relies upon only one path (to run the game).

    Instructions are contained within the batch file. They're very simple, but essential so please read them.

    Right Click to save as.

    Why can't you do both? You can get the top levels of two trees, and the Hunter tree only has 4 skills you should take.. the others are kinda useless, IMHO.

    The wife and I just started the second playthrough, and I find the bird is still incredibly useful. Particularly against large groups of bad guys... even if he doesn't kill them all, he does stun them all.

    My 50 mordecai is all sniper/gunslinger, but my revolver has completely wrecked everything in the game since about level 40. It's like 150 damage x7, and with all my talents I fire at a ridiculous rate. It has actually taken a toll on my desire to play the game because I wreck everything so easily. My friends are like "I'm not playing with you anymore I never get to kill anything." and I agree...I didn't think I was going to be UPSET I kill everything but it's really unfair.

    The only thing that gives me trouble are the lance guards, but with a caustic revolver they're a joke. This is the first game I've ever gotten 1000 gamer points for, and I'm almost certainly going to trade it in next week for MW2 :(

    It was a good run. I'll finish my second playthrough pretty soon and call it a big win.

    Most of the time, except for skills like Aerial Impact where having higher than 100% chance is useless.

    I really don't want to make this a console vs pc war, but I was a PC gamer for so long and one of the biggest reasons I've gone to console is that it's just so damned easy. Friends buy xbox and voila we're playing the same games together...

    PC versions have a lot going for them (or have in the past) but I have such a tough time justifying all the bullshit and upgrades anymore.

    Man New Haven chest runs are so bad if you're a loot whore. Got to New Haven at 22 and just started looping over...and over...and over again.

    Found my first orange that way, an orange shotty with 45x9 damage, 72.9 accuracy, 4x zoom (wtf?) and x1 shock damage. 20 round clip. Weird shit.

    Then I started killing the bug things near chest 6 and an artifact dropped. Sadly it was a level 20 Brick artifact that adds corrosive damage during berserking. Sad day for me.

    Yes. Of course, shit that doesn't make sense like 120% chance to daze guys with melee attacks for Lilith is obviously pointless.

    You can get pretty ridiculous cooldown on Brick's Berserk with a +4 mod.



    Also, any suggestions for a Roland spec? Seems like there's only 2 decent specs, support or turret. I'm going turret build (which is me basically taking most of the "turret" related bonuses) since I have little desire to play support. Just so many underwhelming skills :[

    I like to think of the New Haven chests as the midgame supply system; you run the gauntlet until you've got a suitable loadout and replace the stuff you're been scraping by with, and then you go on with your game.

    And speaking of the special artifacts, has it been said how high their levels can go? I've got Explosive 6 on my soldier man.

    EDIT: Depends on how you play, I like to run and gun it while the turret lays down support and corrosive fire and serves as a nice distraction:

    Impact and Overload for maximum gun effectiveness (I use SMGs primarily so Assault doesn't really help me)
    Sentry, Refire, Barrage and Deploy for turret effectiveness (the rocket thing doesn't sound too useful)
    Defense and Fitness for maximum man effectiveness (I'd like to get Stat instead of Cauterize when playing solo but that'd mean cutting into something else, besides which I found a shield with Quick health regen so I already have something working for me)

    And I usually run around with a Support Gunner mod that does something like 20 team ammo regen and +3 to impact and barrage methinks.

    120% chance to daze guys your own level. What about higher level ones? If you have a 160% chance on dudes your own level, will that make it a 100% chance on a critter a few levels higher as well?

    How many times did you try? And sometimes restarting the game seems to help.

    Quite a number of times. I tried already having entered the game, waiting in the lobby, having my friend already in a game when I invite him, etc.

    I guess I can try restarting Borderlands again...

    I can't be sure on the exact chances, but I noticed a pretty steep decline on daze probabilities on higher level monsters with Mind Games on Lilith. I know one time I pumped a full clip (~50 bullets) from my SMG into a skag two levels above me and didn't daze. This was a Badmutha Skag though, so maybe that effected it some? Actually, that seems to be the case whenever I have trouble dazing something - it's both multiple levels above me and an 'elite' version of the mob, although that could just be that only the elites are spawning above my level at the moment.

    It's official. My bloodwing is a far more efficient killer than I. I just did Treacher's Landing without reloading my shotgun.

    They should make the last boss of the game your own bloodwing. Now THAT would be terrifying.

    Lancers have turrets, Ninetoes has pet skags, King Wee Wee has some sort of artifact shock thing. The world isn't devoid of magical powers outside of PCs.

    Now that you mention it. I had picked up an Eridian hand gun around level 20 or so. It shot like a shot gun with all the randomness but without the power. Two weak shots that didn't hit their target then i had to have it recharge. Sold it right away.
