    Personal experience, but it was difficult to find a game that didn't have at least one Gaige or Krieg.

    I loved Gaige early on but once you hit TVHM her minion suffered from a combination of horrible ai and an obvious inability to scale for the hardest content. That said, I'm not Gaige expert. I was pretty much Maya all the way in UVHM. I heard Sal was the way to go but I was already all in.

    They could still add more but
    1) people would complain about microtransactions
    2) they really put in a lot of work in the trees for each character
    3) legendary class mods allow for a lot of versatility

    I think they could keep new VH ideas for BL4.

    2 and 3 were true of BL2 and TPS, and they still added two characters to their respective rosters.

    And 1 would not happen. This is an established and accepted part of monetization for the series. New characters are what a lot of people, myself included, look forward to most in post-launch support.

    What I wanted to say is that each character has 3 action skills. More complexity featured in each tree this time.

    And legendary class mods in BL3 have special effects beyond the stat boosts featured in the ones BL2/TPS.

    Would be nice seeing more VHs. But right now it doesn't seem part of the plan.

    It all comes down to taste and I haven't hit endgame. I've played all 4 classes and so far the only action skills I like are FL4K Fade (which is getting wrecked) and Amara's Phasegrasp. I'm currently level 15 on Zane and 11 on Moze and am fairly sure I have no interest in what they have to offer vis a vis action skills. I'll still run them up just because but the funnest skill for me was fade and that got wrecked. Next up is phasegrasp which is dime store Maya. Luckily the actual gameplay is awesome but it is really about guns and gear. Your "build" is probably a joke by comparison.

    I haven't hit cap but Amara's blue skill (phase rush?) is boss as a nuke. Swapped to a full phase grasp/red build at Rampager to try something new, probably going to stay red but swap back to rush

    Anarchy Gaige was the first time since BL1 Lilith where I thought a character was ridiculously OP (but fun).

    Offline mode's +900% XP made going from 41-50 a lot more tolerable than 36-41 was.
    Graveward just keeps kicking my butt, so I spent my time with Chupa..whatever on Maya's planet, and killing badasses in the brewery.

    I should check the list of Zane's skills that do nothing and make sure I haven't maxed out all of them.. because that's a thing I bet I'd do.

    I levelled 40-50 in the survival proving ground. Didn't take too long and it drops decentish loot too. My favourite BL3 moment was reaching level 50 by killing the skag at the end of the run and it dropping a fire flakker, literally the best gun possible for an explosive moze build.

    I did Axton to 50, Salvador to 55, then Gaige to 55. When the last DLC came out I did Gaige to 80 OP 10.

    Salvador and Zer0/B0re were great for boss farming. Gaige was great for just doing zany stuff.

    In BL2, I only played as one vault hunter until I learned I could edit save files. I just didn't want to play the game twice over with each character before I could get to the good stuff. The raised level caps from later DLCs, while awesome, also made this barrier more daunting.

    And that's too bad! My friend and I had a lot of fun once we could play around with different characters and explore those pairing synergies. In BL3's favor, there's now a lot more flexibility in each vault hunter's action skill, and, if I understand correctly, a single playthrough is enough to reach max level. That goes a long way, but I'd still like some option that makes starting a new character less of a grind.

    As Red-tree Amara, I'm finding my favorite guns are non-Maliwan elemental weapons. My action skill is fire, so if the weapon is electric/ice/toxic I can get 2 elemental DOTs/effects going. Typically go for Dahl, but I have COV, Vladof, and Hyperion faves too. I've never liked the slow bullet speed on Torque, and I mess up with Tediore reloads too much, so I don't get much play with them. Jakobs just never seems to have elemental guns.

    Has anyone ever made Launchers good? They don't do much better damage than other types of weapons, usually have small clips, and your ammo stock is tiny. They should make ammo even more scarce and up the damage to compensate. I restarted a Brick in BL1 because launchers were bad there, it's disappointing they're basically in the same place now.

    I picked up The Transformer shield..
    Katagawa Jrs fight is a breeze now. Shields down? Smack a generator! Full shields!
    Seems like it would work well with the Handsome Jack SMG mentioned by @Spaffy (electric damage taken is 100% converted to shields recharge.)

    I have too many level 38-40 legendaries.
    At one point Katagawa lootsploded 4 Legends and a Blue. (Mayhem 3)

    Also picked up the Unreal Tournament lightning sniper that shoots plasma balls you can alt fire shoot to make explode. ..the alt fire is a bit buggy though and sometimes stops hitting anything at all, plasma ball included. (It's also an Anointed Operative weapon that does extra stuff when my drone is active)

    Oh shit you're a genius

    I pretty much stick to Vladof launchers with the Big Boy rocket.

    I got lucky and got a Jericho and a Tunguska but both are meh. Tunguska has a hard time hitting Tinks.

    Just wrapped up TVHM - is TVHM Mayhem different from regular Mayhem in terms of difficulty?

    Also, just got myself a Brainstormer shotty, which as a Fist Amara is just... *chef kiss*.

    Shots have a chance to trigger a very strong lightning arc between nearby enemies, of which there are many because I run singularity which pulls all nearby enemies towards Phasegrasp.

    On top of all the AoE elemental damage spreading everywhere and my Phasegrasp also linking damage to nearby enemies, it’s not uncommon for me to take out an entire room with a single shot.

    How hard would it be for me to solo the 3 proving grounds and 2 circles at level 45 in the first play through? No mayhem. I want to do them on multiplayer but that seems impossible given the matchmaking sucks ass.

    I think I'm going to play around with Zane a bit today. But with Shield. I've been underawed by drone and decoy. That said I'm like level 17. I'm taking my time with BL3 running up everyone bit by bit because I figure actual end game is a fair bit off. Current state of affairs is that I needed to bring in outside help to beat Katagawa Ball. This is what lead to a switch to survival build.

    Zane's digiclone gets good with the boost from the grenade buff. But it takes a while to get there.

    Drone is efficient with cryo rounds.

    I really like Atlas launchers that fire multiple rockets per shot. I have one that shoots five rockets per one ammo. The spread is pretty bad, but it's Atlas, so tag an enemy with the tracking puck / dart / whatever and all the rockets jusy home in. On an explosive Moze, you get a chance on each of those rockets to get a shot back in the magazine.

    Shreds high health targets pretty good on my Moze.

    Katagawa Jr is so stingy compared to other bosses. I've killed him 8 times in a row, first two times one legendary each. Next six, zip, zilch, nada. And it's such a tedious and unfun fight.

    I don't understand how game devs haven't figured out that bosses with many immune phases and constant teleporting aren't fun.

    He's easier if you just do the following
    Get a Transformer you are now basically invincible
    Hit all the water pipes
    Never move from the main platform this allows you to see the three generators he'll spawn clones from and you can hit them before he does
    Radiation is better than shock in this fight

    Also Amara can one shot him with phase grip apparently

    I lost my Transformer when my bank poofed. I've found that he takes huge damage when he loses his shield after a clone phase, so I just let him clone then knock his shields off with a shock gun. I tried my radiation Lyuda but like every other gun it basically did nothing to his hp after his shields dropped.

    Also, I'm playing as Moze. I'm trying to get the explosives legendary class mod. I'm trying the infinite nades build right now, and am seriously thinking of going back to my shield build because I don't have either the mod or a Hex, and the build is underwhelming.

    Thanks for the tips!

  • King RiptorKing Riptor Registered User regular
    He doesnt really have a lot of HP its just that the clones die very fast. Ive had really quick fights where I got him stuck in the phase where he jumps and throws those smoke grenades. If you disrupt his pattern the AI gets really confused until his sheild resets

    This a cool combo for farming the Eden-6 boss: https://www.reddit.com/r/borderlands3/comments/ddxsic/this_combo_is_pretty_good/
    NoSkeetOnFeet :

    Basically gun whose bullets have a very slow travel time, so you can switch to a gun witch has a crit multiplier and the bullets from the first gun get the extra crit percentage.

    And the thing is “higher chance for class mods” seems to be really, really low. Maybe they added like 2%?

    It’s still better to go after whatever boss you can down the quickest.

    I gave up on P&T or Kata Jr, and went back to Traunt farming. Got way more loot that way.

    Of course, my BEST farm is Jabbermogwai.

    Step 0.5: Play offline, or don’t I’m not a cop.

    Step 1: Be Moze with “infinite” grenades

    Step 2: Have a cryo hex grenade.

    Step 3: Stand on the ledge off to the side, and slowly throw grenades into them until you get bored.

    Step 4: Max the hunter tree with guardian tokens, if you’re fancy.

    I last about 3-4 minutes before I have to go sift through the blanket of loot all over the swamp for the 10ish legendaries.

    This would probably work with a cryo Crossroad or some other "spray bullets" gun too.

    Reached level 48. So close to 50.

    Digiclone with E-Gone laser triggers the special effect if you use the gun too. So many DoTs.

    So thinking about it , I think the Truant brothers are the best borderlands style antagonist in 3 . Kinda wish they appeared more .TRRRUUUANT! Zane is up to 43 hopefully I will max him out sometime this week and then just go hunting for weapons and stuff I may have missed .
