Since we neglected the old topic and it was closed........
I'm psyched to see more stuff at E3. New planet and the next vault hunter detailed (hearing it will be Moze). This skill-point-for-each-tree build thing is working for me. Excited to see them all.
And whomever is doing the VIP rewards program on the Borderlands website, "season one" began today. Points for stuff that can be redeemed in BL1, BL2, TPS, and BL3 (all current gen I would assume). I already got a "weapon trinket," shield mod, and grenade mod coming in BL3 when I start it. There's a "weapon randomizer" on the website right now that gives 1-of-9 weapons in BL2 or TPS (auto-scaling) for a free one time use.
I wish Gearbox had their own press conference. With BL3 to talk about and now the new BL2 dlc (with a bridging storyline and level cap increase) coming in a few days, they could easily fill an hour.

The Steam leak posting from the other day initially showed it was free. So hoping that's right.
Have you played Tales from the Borderlands? That's more important in terms of carryover to BL3 than Pre-sequel would be.
I'm definitely getting that DLC, I would even pay for but it looks like its going to be free. I love BL2 and was my most played game last generation and I can't wait to sink more hours into it. I think right now my character is around level 74 but anything after 70 isn't technically a "level". The game is a massive time sink to get all the achievements in. I have all but maybe 5 or 6 but the last few are like 10 hours each minimum because it requires leveling characters up to certain levels to use abilities a set number of times. Not as bad as the Under Dome Riot DLC achievements from BL1 though, those were the absolute worst.
I'm super excited. Will get back into my Gaige character that is upper 60's and loaded out. I have an OP8 Axton too. Can't wait to see some story and have a reason to max out some XP again.
looks like I'll have to get a more powerful Bee Shield and Flying Sandhawk SMG (Slagg) again.....for the 10th time. I usually re-up every ~5 levels to keep my gear current. That combo is a monster with Zero when the right stats are maxed out.
The little bit I've seen of the new vehicle builds for BL3 feels like a great addition. The vehicle handling and usage was one of the more lackluster and flat out annoying parts of the previous games. Now being able to "collect" parts and piece together vehicle builds as you want with practical effects according to the pieces, rather than just cosmetic, is a nice change. Gives one more facet to the gear-collection fun of the game.
The vehicles in BL2 when in Ultimate Vault Hunter difficulty were death traps. Only time when you could hold your own if you had the bee shield and would spawn the machine gun car. Other than that you were dead if you tried to use one.
Precisely. Automatic FFYL after a couple hits on UVHM. The new Guardian ranks showed a perk for vehicle damage boosts in the image I saw from the reveal event. Glad they are putting some effort into balancing out the vehicle aspects of gameplay.

Thought the Moze gameplay footage looked awesome. I'd like to know how customized her Iron Bear can be, in terms of what weapons it can be loaded with. Anyone playing Fight for Sanctuary yet? Whatcha think? I'm starting today.
So Moze will have a skill feature that after the timer runs out on Iron Bear, you hop out of the mech, it can stick around for a little bit as a companion. So, you could jump out and then climb on top and use the turret on top yourself.
You'll be able to give/trade gear to your friends even when they are offline or not in your game, with an in-game "email" function.
Unlike the Scavenger Rats in BL2, who pick up loot and you kill them to get it back with no time limit, the BL3 loot scavengers will leave the area after a bit and the stuff is gone.

I had a Rat in BL2 take a legendary drop and then run off and I was not able to find him again. Super pissed that they could take loot of that level.

He ran out of bounds? I don't think that ever happened to me, of course it's hard to keep track all the time. What area was that in? Somewhere there are Rats and also a big enough enemy to drop a legendary.

It was in The Fridge. The Rat grabbed the loot so I killed him and he didn't drop the loot he took. Not too happy about that.

There was an enemy in The Fridge that dropped a legendary to begin with? I figured it woulda been from a boss.
It was that Batman dude I think.
> It was that Batman dude I think.
Ah, ok. forgot about that guy. But I thought he was off in an alcove away from where the Rats were. I haven't done that area in a while.
booted the game up on the X last night and wow does that game look good with the X Enhanced patch. Looks almost as good as what I've seen of BL3. The textures are all really clear and the game runs at a much better frame rate (minus the UI, that still runs at like 15fps).

Are you levelling a 72 character up to 80?
Yeah, I've been farming a boss in the DLC whos been giving out a ton of legendary loot and even a few of that new legendary tiere'd loot. He also give around 25k exp so I've leveled like 4-5 times farming him. I just hit level....76 I think. Loving the DLC so far. I was doing story stuff earlier and got around 3 hours in before getting side tracked with other stuff. I wish I would have upgraded my flying sandhawk prior to this though because its only level 61. Still murders like crazy though.
I'm almost 78 now. Just been doing stuff with a few other people, getting Pearls.
I've gotten a few pearls and a few rainbows and ton of legendaries so far. I got probably 3 legendaries that I can't tell what's so special about them. Also somehow ended up with a level 80 Sham shield. Bunker usually is the only way to get that and I've not farmed him since probably around the high level 50s.
I'm probably going with Zane as well. So far I've went Mordecai in BL1 and then Zer0 in BL2. Zane kind of feels like he'll be right up the same alley.
I know I'll equip the sentry drone, but I was unsure of the shield barrier or digi-clone as the second........until I read the clone skill tree. Some of those things are awesome.
I'm not reading any of that stuff because I want to be surprised with what he'll be able to do when stacking certain skills. I know that with Zer0 I stacked skills in such a way I was able to do a shot with my sniper rifle to Bunker (only worked with that one boss in particular) that did somewhere around 20 billion damage. I could 1-shot him with any rifle in the game, legendary or not, on UVH. Looking forward to finding crazy stuff like that in BL3.
Hurry up and give out some specs on Fl4k already, somebody.
Some of the new things discussed at Guardian Con today:
In-game "pinging." Marking items of interest on the screen and minimap (with a sound and visual, sometimes character audio comments as well) for co-op partners without mics. Since the items in chests are now able to be picked up by everyone, awesome to be able to alert others to the chests. Works on enemies, ammo crates, interactable objects, gear drops......all kinds of stuff.
Asynchronous matchmaking so you can be playing while the game finds you partners. Activity-group based matchmaking too.
New interactive "events" in the Twitch Extension program too.
There will be toggles for auto-mantling and things like that, they mentioned aim assist, and varying sounds for different rarity drops to help color blind players.
BL2's DLC has been out for years. BL3's DLC I don't think has really been talked about too much yet so I wouldn't expect any to be released for at least 4-6 months after the release of the game itself.
The DLC is free for everyone, you don't need to have purchased the Season Pass as all the SP gave you was the 4 previous DLC packs and that was it. I think all you need to own is just the BL2 game itself in order to use the newest DLC.
New trailer today makes me want a gun water fountain in every game.
