    As an aside, the purple SMG you get from claptrap's last quest is really fucking good. It's better than a lot of the orange SMGs, and easy to get.

    Though you do have to do that awful quest on necrotefayo.

    I can barely make it in Mayhem 1. Now they are adding Mayhem 4.

    3 isn't so bad if you farmed offline for a bit you can use graveward and the tinks to gear up pretty fast

    3 is usually possible but hard for me, though some of the mods are just a quit/restart.

    2 is pretty much always ok, and where I find the best risk/reward cutoffs. I’m definitely not running “optimal” gear, though.

    I don’t think they’re OP on anyone but FL4K who Using the guaranteed crit skill. For the duration you can continuously fire effectively 4 shots a second into your target and you never have to stop to reload. With guerrillas in the mist and a K/Q Call, I can get Tyreen into her first immune phase inside the duration of his skill activation.

    Still no real performance fixes but at least they gave us a vague "in the November update" window finally. I'm waiting on that to play anymore. I don't want to experience all the good things this game has to offer while everything still runs like shit.

    This is often how I feel about hyped up guns. The Lyuda in particular was a tremendous letdown, even before the nerfs.

    Cutsman, Hellwalker, and Crossroads all hold up in the "every bit as OP as you heard" department, though. Even with the nerfs (though the Crossroads a little less than the other two, IMO.)

    These ghosts are getting annoying

  • LucascraftLucascraft Registered User regular
    There seems to be at least a couple tiers of ghosts.

    Normal dudes spawn blue ghosts and those don't seem to drop any loot.

    Badasses spawn these red ghosts that kind of hover around and shoot at you out of their mouths. The red ghosts are total loot pinatas. Like 3-4 items per red ghost killed. It's great. I have looted so many guns tonight.

    but they don't drop anything good. or at least not more than normal. And they make you slow. And innacurate. And the annoying noise.

    I dislike the ghosts.

  • VishNubVishNub Registered User regular
    yellow ghosts (loot ghosts) are ok, though. because they don't do the annoying things, and drop better loot.

    So the new legendary can have an annointment that inflicts terror repeatedly after an action skill so that's probably how you inflict it post event

    It's kind of beyond ridiculous that making cutscenes skippable is so hard.

    Finally got Unleash the Dragon and my punching game just lit up. Now to farm a Ward shield from a very hard to punch boss. Mines is still just a level 37 shield that has 200% melee after phase slam and I just haven't been able to give it up for more actual shield.

    If you need to farm but your build isnt great for it use the invincibility glitch.

    Brawler Amara doesn't ever risk actually dying against graveward, it just takes ages to kill him with the whole lack of punching and being undergeared.

    Porcelain Pipe Bomb can still light Graveward up, provided Mayhem doesn't negate the elemental affix you have on it.

    Why would that imply incompetence? Using cutscenes as a trigger is incredibly common, nevermind the possibility of masking a load behind one which is also a smart use of player downtime.

    Even if it's simply moving where the trigger fires you've still gotta add the functionality to actually advance everything plus verify every trigger with every character on every difficulty. Plus wait for the console patch process since they seem to be trying to patch all systems same day and date.

    Edit: It's also a QoL update to an existing system that works fine so it's going to be prioritized behind other, more pressing things.

    Moze and the Vampyr skill have spoiled me. I'm trying to finish leveling Amara (48) and she just feels so paper thin. But that's just because Moze is invincible with Vampyr and a Hex or Storm Front grenade. Even with all the damage reduction and HP regen Amara can get, she just goes down so fast. It's infuriating.

    Many, if not most, games allow for the skipping of cutscenes. That is basically SOP for video games for the past decade at least. Especially in a game that encourages replaying this much. Designing your game in a way that makes it difficult to implement such a basic QoL feature is at the very least short sighted and ignorant of player demand.

    I'm actually really liking these ghost/haunted mechanics. It has changed the way encounters have to be approached in some ways. It's of course a temporary change, so for this period of time, we have to adjust our tactics and play a little differently. It's a fun mix-up.

    I mean, it's kind of a bigger surprise. They addressed so many things that were common complaints in BL2, like the drop rate and how fast you get your action skill, action skill diversity, more meaningful gun differentiation, etc. They had to be aware of how their player base felt about unskippable cutscenes. So I was surprised they hadn't addressed it, given how straightforward the fix seems to be?

    Yeah even if they let you skip the actual cut scenes the game also has like pseudo cut scenes that play out. And in one instance in the later game, if you deviate from the route your supposed to take it'll bug the game and make the mission unfinishable.
