    There's save editors.

    Where?! :P I'm going to have to try fiddling with Cheat Engine and try and find a working table at this rate.

    The save format and encryption was just recently figured out for the PC, so not much yet. But here's what I've seen so far:

    this is the first one i've seen: https://github.com/pclifford/borderlands2

    and Gibbed is working on one, that from what I hear it almost done, should be posted on his blog when it's ready: http://blog.gib.me/

    and there's a port of WillowTree# being worked on, but it's just in the starting stages.

    Did today's patch bork shield text for anybody else? Turtles, for example, used to tell me how much health they took off in exchange for added shield capacity. Now it just tells that it takes health off without telling me how much.

    I was Googling Hit Bit's Bonerlands image when I came across this little gem in that same thread:
    gearbox keeps talking about this "true vault hunter" mode

    but i don't think it's gonna be hard enough
    i stand by this statement

    especially given the sheer number of amazing builds currently out there that aren't dependent on the bee

    I went through all of PT2 without a Bee

    There were a few spots I died a couple times making it through, but I never felt like it was too difficult. Especially when I was playing co-op.

    EDIT: now if I want to solo kill Terra in ten seconds, that's another matter entirely and then I use the Bee.

    co-op removes 85% of deaths in TVHM

    simply because most deaths happen when you can't see something to second wind off of, not that you can't output enough damage

    Hey, thread regulars. I'm going to pass on the OP torch when we hit 99.

    Someone take it who will show it the love and attention it deserves.

    yea the bee is pretty much just for farming bosses conveniently. i hope they dont end up nerfing it, or if they do they jack drop rates up some to compensate. its bad enough killing terra a couple hundred times or whatever, it would be just totally awful if it also took a bunch of time and effort to kill him every time. and then he didnt drop anything worth picking up.

    Incidentally, I finally got Terra to drop its grenade mod and shotgun.

    The grenade is kind of neat and e-tech. The shotgun, aside from a neat spread pattern, is completely disappointing. And a Blue, to boot. Ugh.

    I kind of wanted to get the shield just because, but bleh.

    Yep, confirmed b0rked on PS3, just picked up a turtle while farming the warrior to check and no figure for health reduction any more. I never use the shields anyway personally but that'd be really annoying if I did.

    edit: The shields that increase health also don't mention by how much any more now.

    TVHM question: If I, at level 34, farm the doc for his infinite ammo gun... will that gun then "freeze" at this level even when I reach 2.5, or will I be able to get a lvl 50 version of that gun then as well? (Or do I simply have to wait?)

    Heard the proposition that RIAA and MPAA should join forces and form "Music And Film Industry Association"?

    If you farm him at your level thats the level of the gun you get, but at 2.5 he'll drop a level 50 version.

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

    Oh god you're right, it is Tali.

    Honestly, I will be surprised if a Mechromancer head manages to tempt me away from the default. The default is really good.

    Thank you for the clarification. So its only the quest rewards that gets "locked", any drops even if you've taken that quest, will match your level then, I take it.

    Yeah only quest rewards, all bosses get a level up in 2.5.

    I went through all of PT2 with a level 28 Bee.

    So I only had 1.2k shields for most of it.

    I died a lot.

    Yeah, stupid huh? I'm pretty accustomed to having features removed in patches as a PS3 owner but normally that's just Sony, I'd expect better from Gearbox.

    Also, holy crap Deathtrap moves like a gazelle with its ass on fire, enemies can barely get a bead on him and by the time they do he's burned them to ashes with his LASERFACE :D

    So if I sided with the Zafords and wiped out the Hodunks, does that mean I can't farm Mick Zaford for Maggie's pistol? Or can I bum rush his bar and wi[e them all out too?

    Had to google her skill-tree. Main site hasn't caught up yet. Oh, and removing points is suddenly there. Yay.

    I'm only a handful of skills in, but first impression is that she's fun.

    Huh, she actually seems rather conducive to sacrificing health for shields. Even a skill that converts health into shields.


    Edit: Discord hurts my head. Help me think.
