20. Re: Borderlands 2 Patched Nov 14, 2012, 13:57 Creston

I'm still amazed you've only seen 2 legendary. But you know how sometimes one person claims he's had no problems in a game full of bugs, and everyone yells at him that his experience isn't typical?

I think your experience isn't typical. My level 30 zer0 has two legendary items on him right now. My level 24 Gunzerker also has two. And I've had a few others which I've since sold.


Looking at the weighted drop rates (and not really knowing what other drop mechanisms are in place -- we know there's a separate drop chance for a boss to drop his unique loot if he has it, but it's a very low chance, so there might be some other tables that get pinged too), I'd say my experience is actually fairly standard and people who get more have just gotten a little luckier above the norm.

And that's fine, I understand that not everyone's experience is the same, but it doesn't diminish the fact that I played for 50+ hours with my commando, and found fuck all in worthy loot after level 20. Yes, I found the normal damage upgrades, but I'm sorry, that just doesn't fill me with happiness. Going from 240 damage per shot to 255 damage per shot and 2% extra chance on the acid damage is not an upgrade. That's just the same fucking gun. It still takes 95 shots to kill a fucking Buzzard with it.

The only time I made a pretty big jump in gun effectiveness was:

A) When I farmed the Warrior in PT1. He dropped some nice blue and purple items that were a 30-40% upgrade over what I had.
B) plinking the Golden Chest. (which now has a confirmation on open. After everyone's already wasted their first key on it, and now everyone knows what it is. GJ, Gearbox.)

I mean, what's the fucking point of finding great loot AFTER you turn 50? I'm not going to play my commando anymore, because there's nothing to do. I've finished all the quests except for a few minor (and annoying) side quests.

I finally modded the drop rates to 0.1 for everything and 1000 for legendaries, then farmed the Warrior in PT2 a few times, (fun to see 40 legendaries pop out) just so I could see what I missed. And shit, there are some fucking awesome and hilarious legendary guns in there. Why don't we get these WHILE FUCKING PLAYING???

One of the drops was a shotgun that you throw away like a Tediore when you reload it, but it bounces off walls, and then FLIES AFTER MONSTERS WHILE FIRING AT THEM. It's like the ultimate buzzard killer. I practically pissed myself laughing the first time I saw it go after a Buzzard like a fucking Spitfire.

Where does it drop? Oh yeah, one boss has the chance to drop it, after you farm him. Why does the game have to have this dumb-ass MMORPG bullshit attached to it? Farming a fucking Raid boss? Wtf is this, WoW?

I think the thing that annoys me the most is that everything just pings the same shitty loot table. The Warrior pings the same table as the fucking lockers in scooter's garage. That's just fucking stupid.
