    If the projectile actually had some speed to it, it might be worth using to me. I like bullets. They go where I tell them much faster.

    I guess...

    I'm still kind of sad I have to aim ahead depending on distance from my target when it comes to long range sniping.

    some NPCs patrol in really dumb ways :(

    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.
    Pretty much this.

    Also, since I finally moved on, I'm suddenly knee-deep in good shit, and have replaced nearly all of my load-out several times over tonight. Finally found (several) decent level-appropriate shields, an orange x4 corrosive revolver that tears shit up, another pretty good Hyperion SMG and a purple incendiary SMG that absolutely rapes when combined with a Firefly class mod & incendiary artifact.

    I killed a Badass Psycho by Phase Shifting. I didn't even have to hit him.

    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.

    I found one like that... except it sent seven "pellets" each shot, and anything that I hit with it died in one shot.

    However, I had to also be pretty much point blank... the pellet spread was pretty awful. Edit: This would be a fun Lilith weapon, I think! :D

    if you level up eridian proficiency it lowers recharge time, get it high enough and they recharge just about as fast you can fire it. But thats a lot of work with guns that just aren't all that great overall (than again I haven't found better than a green one, maybe the oranges are super nice).

    I found an OMG cannon with 1556 damage rating. Green but still huge damage so it might be worth it down the line. Depends if in Borderlands 2 if you get to keep your characters :p

    Here's how shit goes down with my Lilith right now.

    I'm a Plaguebearer with this mod:

    bl-stuff1.png

    I then wreck shit with this pistol. Crimson Lance non-badasses die with one headshot, badasses die in a maximum of four shots.

    bl-stuff2.png

    Every now and then (and if I run low on revolver ammo) I switch to Mercenary:

    bl-stuff3.png

    This is the main weapon for that spec. I call it "daddy's lead hose". x2 bullets, awesome accuracy.

    bl-stuff4.png

    Should I run low on ammo I switch to this beauty that isn't far behind on damage. I go back up to full ammo as soon as there's a lull in the fighting.

    all eridian guns are green however the cannon can do up to 1600 damage it seems.

    I personally like the lightning sniper however I am almost positive that all eridian guns make you run slower.

    I think I have 7 of them in my inventory right now.

    2 snipers 2 cannons and 3 shotguns.

    Using Bloodwing in a duel isn't even fair.

    Phasewalk is used for escaping until you get an artifact. That's when it turns mean. Regarding builds, you really can't do it wrong. Controller is great, so is Elemental. Assassin is a great secondary and maybe even a good primary.

    edit: You have to use guerrilla tactics early on, but in the mid game you become a strong front liner and then in the end game you become death incarnate.

    I want to try a meleeing assassin spec (short cooldown Phasewalk for backstabbing), but I'll wait for the PC patch so Phase Strike actually works.

    I hear they need a week to polish the patch.

    If you go Assassin don't get Phase Strike. Even after the fix it's still a waste of points. Just get anything that makes your guns better and a Merc mod and then work on making Phasewalk better.

    I'm a bit disappointed with elemental effects for Lilith, especially on SMGs. I feel that I do way more damage with a non-elemental SMG since its item budget isn't spend on elemental effects and has higher plain physical damage instead.

    The elemental dots don't make up for the loss of damage. They could use a buff.

    Agreed. I was finding it tough early on, but once you get a good Merc class mod and you have some skill points increasing bullet damage and whatnot, your SMG is insane. If you use a merc class mod and a hyperion SMG you can generally do better damage at range with your SMG than you can with a sniper rifle, even that orange one you get.

    Right now I've got a Plaguebearer mod with a 102 damage corrosive SMG with corrosive phasewalk and corrosive grenades. When I enter a zone things just die in pools of green goo where ever I go.

    Here's another way to get rid the 2k logo and nivida movies.

    Go into your \Gearbox Software\Borderlands\WillowGame\Movies folder
    Rename 2K_logo.bik and NVidia.bik to something else
    Start the game with out the unskippable intros forever more.

    Jumpin' Jesus, Why do developers STILL make this simple mistake? The 2nd flaw I've found in this game. (Crashing on Alt-tab? For shame...)

    Thankfully there isn't any hour long unskippable boss intro movies that get replayed when you die over and over.

    I disagree. Elemental damage stacks, so if you're spewing an x4 fire or corrosive gun, the damage adds up fast and does way more damage over time.

    Guess I just need to find better elemental weapons, then. But so far my lower-level non-elemental SMG outright kills shit dead in fewer shots than my high-level elemental SMGs need to stack up a dot decently, and that's not accounting for the extra time the dot needs to tick.

    Lilith definitely seems more survivable than Roland at any rate. My friend, who is no slouch, dies semi regularly whereas I pretty much never die if I'm paying attention(as Lilith)

    I agree. My friend is mediocre at best, but his Lilith walks through everything, whereas, I consider myself above competent, play Roland, and go down easily. Pride before the fall and all that.

    I rarely go down with Roland unless I fuck up a turret placement and once I picked up Stat I pretty much didn't.

    I focused on the first tree for Brick and that may be part of the problem. I really think some of it is Beserk gets me into trouble where the turret or phasewalk gets me out of it.

    whatever build I do with brick I make sure the first thing I do is get the increased health/shield skills before touching anything else.

    Oddly enough I didn't like the roaster at first, but using it on skags and unarmored humanoids on the second playthrough it does a ridiculous amount of damage. Especially with the metal storm talent on a soldier. I can shoot a ridiculous amount of rockets very accurately that all do tons of fire damage.
