    I'm still picking up anything worth ~$1,000+, SDU's are mighty expensive first playthrough.

    I will say this, even after the nerf, and even though it takes forever, mayhem 3 does still drop legendaries pretty often. RNG gonna RNG but even my limited play had 4 drop.

    So started zane and he is fun so far even if I can already tell he won’t have the dmg output moze had. Much more of a personality though , Moze felt super blah character wise.

    Will be taking it slow and doing everything this run , I got impatient and just rushed the end with moze as post level 30 everything feels like filler.

    Thanks for the offer. Probably stick to playing with my brother, but I'll keep it in mind.

    Moze is the Fighter. Zane is the Bard.

    He has really funny lines.

    I lack experience with the other VHs but I would venture to say that Zane's early skills are meh. Takes a while to get him going.

    I like Amara's personality. And not just because she has immortman joe lines.

    I really, really don't like the main villains or the beyond horrible kiddie Siren (who wrote that shit, it boggles my mind) who I just shoot in the face every time I see her but she refuses to die. I'm thinking this is a bit like how the early Christians envisioned Hell. That said, there's a lot of good stuff here as well and I suppose I should do a slow walkthrough at some point and it's good to know Zane has some personality.

    The Mythic head for Zane is *really* good.

    Also, I'm a bit...neutral on Ava. I feel like they were going to do more with her that got cut for time, and so all we got are the big moments
    where all her friends are getting murdered and so she's having a real bad time.

    She reminds me a bit of Tina, except Tina actually got the screen time to show how she's been through a lot but is still awesome.

    Screen time I think is a factor with the problem players have with Ava in that she got a bit too much of it in the end.
    Her actions and reactions when it came to Maya's death ended up souring players to her character and Gearbox made the mistake of pushing her forward like they did. Seeing that she's Maya's apprentice, she kinda had to but they could have saved her getting Maya's powers until after both twins bit it. Tyreen could have gotten her hands on them first when she absorbed Troy, then both Ava and Lilith could have gotten Siren powers at the same time at the end. Not helped by the fact that Lilith a) tells her that she was right about not doing enough and b) gives her Sanctuary. By that point I was starting to get 'creator's pet' vibes from Ava which is not a good thing. One could say the same with Tina seeing who's voicing her and who came up with her originally but she was never at the center of the BL2 plot like the BL1 Vault Hunters.

    Regarding Ava,
    They definitely set up a (fairly cliched) "she wasn't ready for to go adventuring and her mentor died because of it and she feels guilty about it and grows as a person" kinda deal, but they never really get to the "she feels guilty and learns from her mistakes" part. Same kinda thing happens with the Troy and Tyreen feud that's the background of Eden-6 - it feels like it's supposed to lead somewhere but then just gets dropped.

    There are a LOT of storylines that were clearly meant to go somewhere in this game but didn't. Ava is by no means special in that regard

    The problem is that Ava’s by virtue of being a protagonist, makes it worse as her arc affects fan favorite characters. As opposed to the antagonists who we all know we are going to fight at the end so even if you hate them there is a catharsis by means of murder.

    Ava didn't rub me the wrong way, nor particularly generate much enthusiasm. I did think the stolen diary mission was well done.

    I was pretty salty that they killed...
    ...me. Which is to say Maya, my BL2 main. :(

    The Oni skin you can unlock for VIP points is really good. My zane though has a hilarious giant mustache and american flag skin. Everybody jokingly calls me uncle sam.

    I think we are meant to contrast her with the Calypsos.
    Maya made sure Ava was ready unlike the dysfunctional relation T&T had with their father. (And Maya also sets ups Ava as a VH for BL4.)

    Typhoon should have taken them to Pandora at least instead of keeping them in Necro. Maybe that way he could have avoided the tragedy.

    Man, these weird spikes and valleys I get on the enemy levels are weird. Maybe the game changes to easy mode or I'm overleveled by doing too many sidequests.

    I turned off mayhem mode to get the crew challenges on Athenas and it dropped the whole area down to level 14. The scaling in this game is weird

    Does anyone know if some of these achievements are "account wide" or if they have to be done on a single character?

    Example 1: The Earl "buy 20 cosmetic items"
    Example 2: Receive a brand loyalty mail from each manufacturer

    Can I use a Dahl gun on one character, and a Torgue on another, and earn the loyalty mails on them, and have both count towards that achievement?

    Just beat Katagawa Ball, I don't know if it got nerfed but i didn't really have any issues with the fight. I did have some horrendous hitching in the room leading up to the fight. Might have been my Xbox though, it persisted into sanctuary and the game had been been backgrounded.

    Still haven't seen a legendary drop though

    They either fixed something or I got lucky. I had a sweet electric sniper rifle going into the fight and it just chunked the ball really hard so maybe it was that?

    I feel dumb, at level 25 and looking up builds for Moze, I was actually doing one pretty much on my own already, but then it showed me her blue tree which I hadn't touched....thats where the skills that let me have my mech for more then 10 seconds are....whelp.

    So I know I have been very vocal on how much I dislike the writing but while leveling up zane I did find one line that made me laugh from a side mission on Athena . “ Hey guys stop burning people houses down and listen to this stupid emo chicks diary!” Which is weird because when you think about it you realize how mean it is but just something about how silly and well how borderlands it is makes me giggle.

    Too many green pistols. Sheesh.

    But at least I got a legendary rocket launcher.

    Fight wasn't hard. Just took a while. Good thing a Jakobs sniper rifle can make the fight shorter.
