    I don't think that would ever work in Borderlands. This game is much too player-centric. Even classes like Mordecai, Roland, and Axton, who have a reliance on external entities for their class specials, they are still very much a shooter class. Having a player who relies almost entirely on their pet would break the experience of the game. Items would become meaningless. If 70% of your damage comes from your pet skagg, the quest for loot becomes meaningless.

    Then it would work fine if the pet wasn't supplying 70% damage which there's no reason to even assume it would do. There's plenty of other things it could affect.

    Oh well. Maybe someday we'll get an actual pet class.

    Like a Beastmaster class?

    One where you might have a Skag who evolves or hell with how this game goes maybe even a midget!

    I was thinking that too. Skagcharmer or something.

    Or make Handsome Jack Clone a class with skill trees Charmer, Handsomeness, and Snark and it lets your charm different enemy types. Snark could be for psychos.

    Great more Bunk3r farming where he won't drop me shit. I guess I can replace the Sham I gave to curly.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    Yeah, I got a chuckle out of the Streets Ahead skin. Good stuff.

    I am liking Gaige as a character so far, she seems pretty hilarious. Very overenthusiastic.

    You could feed it guns and items to improve its stats and give it new powers, like the possessed weapons in Darksiders 2. The higher you get, the more you need to feed it purple and orange loot to buff him up.

    one of her skills is Strength of Five Gorillas. Which is a fuckin Sealab2021 reference. Which makes me happier than you could possibly know.

    her skill tree is weird. A lot of solo one-off skills, which I love. I like getting a cool new thing vs improving a thing I already have.

    So Gage has a skin called "Cool Cool Cool", too.

    And here I thought they couldn't fit in more references even if they tried.

    "Cool Cool Cool" and "Streets Ahead" are both jokes from Community.

    the Make It Sparkle talent could also be a How I Met Your Mother reference to one of the character's past career as a Canadian pop star.

    Having pets that work like Torchlight 2 could be cool. Although there's no real advantage in having them go to town to sell things since there's so many vendors. But having it bring back health and ammo would be nice. Also ammo, health and money should always auto collect no matter where its from. Please god do this already.

    So for those who have already played Gaige this morning, first impressions? Is she good? Is her Deathtrap's AI smart?
    Do you hate accuracy? Then anarchy is for you! Grab a low capacity shotgun and just go to town in things faces and she'll do fine.

    Deathtrap seems ok, haven't used him much. Not sure if he'll be able to compensate for the horrible accuracy I'm going to have. Actually, on that subject: What does -175% accuracy mean in game terms (ie: how is it different from -150)?

    I believe it means you will be 175% less accurate.

    (Or in other terms, your spread on X gun will be 2.75 times the standard amount)

    Anyone have any tips on farming Mick Zaford? I swear that whole group is tougher than Terra and the Warrior. Everytime I zone out of Lynchwood I get instantly dropped to FFYL and all the Zaford grunts have a bajillion hps and hide behind cover until I die. And if I approach in a car from Highlands they can usually blow it up within 4-5 shots, so instaneously...

    Just skill Close Enough. It doesn't matter if you miss, because everything will just ricochet off walls and cans and kill your enemies anyways!

    The 20% cooler skill is also a FiM reference.

    He's tough, what character are you? Honestly what I tended to do was fresh out of lynchwood I'd drop grenades and rush around the building to the left. That tended to funnel them into my kill zone a lot better.

    ok, you know Axton? It's like that except your turret actively chases them down while you literally giggle like a little girl.

    The name is a robin sparkles reference, the flavor text is a Twilight knock. Things can be multiple references :D

    I grew attached to Dukino a little bit. Wouldn't mind a pet class with him.

    As Maya, I think I may just have to forgo using my Bee too, but I don't think any shield is gonna save me from that salvo. I'll have to try just running straight out behind the building.

    Try restarting Steam? Steam didn't tell me it had downloaded the DLC, but would give me a Steam Cloud error when I tried to start Borderlands. I restarted and it showed it had downloaded the DLC and had finished, then it started just fine.

    Didn't help, nor did the 2 files it downloaded after validation. Good thing I don't really want the mechromancer, but if this borked the rest of the game I'll be annoyed. They don't want that, do they?!?!

    Edit: Is the season pass supposed to be showing up under DLC too? I didn't get it, but there it is. I assume it's from Gaige, but this patch isn't exactly flawless so far. Edit to the edit: Oh, it's just an ad to get it. Game is just ignoring that 500MB patch it seems. Copied the game to a second PC and it wants to download the 500MB patch again too. This patch sucks so far!

    Deathtrap really tears shit up, possibly better than the turret. He also moves like lightning.

    How do they work Gaige into the story? Is it just exactly the same as every other character or is there some introduction where she gets her own sequence?

    There's nothing, she's just there. I think her back story was posted on twitter or youtube.
