    Man, Deathtrap really is gloriously broken. He can fly so he just shoots off to kill anything he sees without worrying about trifling obstacles like stairs or walls or yawning chasms.

    Poor claptrap, his product line should've been created by Gaige. Incidentally, DT can also trash badasses quite nicely.

    Just reading descriptions was going well, but I tried to think about builds and I think my brain is broken.

    I'm thinking 23-11-11 right now. But there are some flexible points, there. 22-12-11 or whatever.

    On that note I feel like the "BFF tree is for bads" thing was blown WAAAAY the fuck out of proportion.

    It's her survivability tree, just about all of them have one.

    Her base-cooldown is huge. BFF for the victory.

    BFF looks awesome.

    though so does sparkle happy time. its a tough call but i imagine it would depend on how many good elementals you find

    Does it account for weapon-damage, or could you just feed him a trash-gun of the right element?

    So, I'm on 360 and I see a Season Pass? Which apparently unlocks Gaige "when she's available"? But no Mechromancer specific DLC, unless that's it?

    It's 800 points.

    Wow. So this update for the Xbox is pretty properly fucked at the moment. When you go to download the Compatibility Pack from Xbox Live you're told that it costs -1 MS point, but purchasing it requires 435146551354 MS points.

    Would be funny if I didn't want to play this new class so badly.

    True, but the length of time DT stays out murdering everything around you is also huge, he's been alive for a good 15+ seconds still after tearing bandits apart. I'm a bit overlevelled currently so I'm not really sure what sort of health he has, he certainly hasn't had any survivability problems though, even against two badasses at once.

    If it's anything like Axton's turret, it has far more HP than you do.

  • Options

    Oh definitely, he can sit in the middle of a dozen bandits all shooting the crap out of him without flinching currently (I'm a few levels higher than them though).

    So you are referring to the 3MB patch plus the Mechromancer download or is this something else? I logged in this morning, was prompted to update the game, then saw a notification that Gaige was available so I went to the DLC tab and got her. Everything seemed to be fine...I have the Premier Club though, is this the update for people that didn't pre-order that is all jacked up right now?

    This seems to be a very recent (say within the last couple of hours) issue, according to what I've been reading. I just came home and tried to download it and encountered this problem. The patch itself (the one I was prompted to download just as the game booted up) went through fine, but the compatibility pack itself (apparently an additional piece of data required to make the new class and such work) is all hosed. I'm in the premiere club as well but I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. Still not fixed as of now - I expect they're trying to push something through MS's notoriously glacial-paced XBL approval process.

    I came here too see if the xbox version was too badly busted to risk a download. I think I will be skipping the download for a while.

    Thanks for the recon, gang.

    Deathtrap is awesome.

    He's basically the protection you wish you had in school, any enemy around? He'll go right at them with a vengeance viciously.

    yea, though his killing machineness compensates for your lack of any sort of health/damage

    Seriously, at Level 7/8 he destroyed

    before I could start doing anything. And I completed all the boss's specific challenges in one go too.

    Well that 1 point in Anarchy + a two shot Jacobs shotgun + Deathtrap was getting me to 50+ anarchy really easy.

    Really powerful when I was actually able to hit anybody. And Gaige was commenting "Well who needs accuracy anyway" too :lol:

    I find the height thing kinda throws me off and yeah Gaige seems quite fragile compared to the other VH's, for one I tend to die if not using the bot a lot at first.

    Heh, I was pretty much the same more or less.

    Though the bot did go down pretty quick when two badasses met him.

    PS seems the first DLC content will be out soon.

    Spoiler stuff.

    But basically new weapons, more head, new rarity level (maybe), bosses etc.

    I am scared to play because if my BA rank and skins and such get reset, I'd probably just never want to play again

    I know it's mostly a cosmetic issue, but it's still stuff that I've worked to achieve, and losing it would be ultra frustrating

    This sucks

    THE FUCKING ANARCHY BUFF DISAPPEARS
    WHAT
    I was able to get it to 150 using a 1 shot shotgun tough
    Edit:i also had a horrible freeze,basically i was playing online,i had like 1 bar left for 16,then i suddenly decide to leave the game,the game got stuck at the saving screen that always appears when you leave as game,i had to go back to Playstation home because it wouldn't unlock,thankfully i didn't lose my save,but i got back to level 14,despite the fact that i saved excessively while in that game

    I had that issue with Anarchy while playing co-op. Didn't seem to happen when I tested it singleplayer, but I didn't play singleplayer very long.

    Now I am having another problem, namely, having my DLC removed from my Steam account retroactively because someone made a mistake and decided to punish people for it instead of owning up to it. When the Mechromancer first went live on Steam, the store page said that you did not need to purchase it if you preordered or if you bought the season pass. Well, since I got the game from Nvidia I did not get the Premier Club preorder bonuses, so, I bought the season pass. Made my Mechromancer this morning and was having a good time. Came back this evening and boot it up and get told my save is incompatible because it used DLC that I did not own. Checked my DLC and the Premier Club was no longer listed as it was earlier in the day, and the store page for the Mechromancer was changed to no longer mention the season pass.

    So yeah, if a retail store prints a sales advertisement promoting a free product with purchase of another product, and you buy it. When it turns out the sales ad was a mistake and that was not intended, are they going to break into my house and take back the free item? Of course not. But somehow companies seem to think this is acceptable when dealing with digital content.

    Even the skill that was advertised as for bads isn't even just for bads, you need that Close Enough to make Anarchy really work well, and it sounds fun as hell on its own to boot.

    Of course they do. They're already ripping you off with digital content to start with, not surprising the mentality carries over. Hopefully they sort that crap out, but probably wont.

    Yeah, that's pretty shitty of them.

    I'd kick up a fuss on the Gearbox forums, this probably happened to a lot of other people and making some noise there or maybe on Reddit is most likely your best chance to get it turned around.

    So steam is downloading the DLC. Again. After having verified the integrity of my local files. Again.

    ...

    Everytime I think I'm ok with Steam shit like this happens and I start to loathe it again.

    I can't see playing Gaige without 5/0/1, just too much bang for your buck. I'll be going some variant of 2x/0/2x depending on how well Deathtrap scales, though of course class mods will probably mix that up a fair bit.
