kulatong21's screenshot of the hack at the entrance to the Caustic Caverns (what a shocking coincidence):

And the root post that includes pox911's hack (update #30) along with all the others: http://www.cheatengine.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=5407859&sid=feaa76fde16b24de19d4336f698978c9#5407859
For reference, the only legitimate place to get a Vermi to spawn is at the farm located in The Tundra. And then it usually takes 15 minutes of waiting for the multiple stages of evolution to happen, and it isn't always a guaranteed thing.

Not true. I've seen it done in Caustic at least 10 times. All totally legite on a live stream I jump into from time-to-time. I even helped out yesterday but we couldn't get him to spawn there so we went to the farm house and got him on our second try but, he didn't drop anything because we had a level 38 with us...even with four 50's he doesn't always drop good loot. Sometimes it's just piles of money. But it's an interesting/intense and fun challenge to do. Not at all easy.

Don't read this if you haven't finished the game and/or like discovering things about bosses for yourself:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Vermi is what Warrior and Terra should have been. Warrior's birds should have been more aggressive, even in Normal Mode; and, in TVHM there should have been baby dragons attacking you while you fight Warrior. Same with Terra--super aggressive bird things and when you kill a tentacle it spawns a thresher---that's a boss fight. For TVHM they made the bosses too easy when even 1 player of 4 is using Legendary gear properly.

All you have to do is keep them aggro'ed. Keep moving at least kinda near them. You have to keep their attention. Shoot in their general direction. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
If you try in Caustic, someone has to run and kill any Chrystalisks that get near because the Varkyds will want to go fight them. Spec for healing as a Siren--and don't use Crowd Control, super heavy as a Zerker.

Really cool guy was kind enough to give me this yesterday: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

How cool is that..? Plus I got an Orange shotty for helping with Vermi yesterday. I think I'm good for now.

Really think I need to get my Siren past level 5 now...redface.gif

Almost forgot why I even came here:
BL2 Tweaks. For anyone who hasn't tried it--try playing without those thick black outlines. IMO, it makes the game look a bit better and will actually give you a few frames back...on average I saw an increase of about 5-9 fps.

@Sev thumb.gif I like the look without the lines. BL2's art style still really shines without them. And til my GTX 660 gets here I could really use the frames.

I probably should have thrown in a caveat on that, lol. Change "only" to "most likely" or something. I'm assuming you had it happen in the warehouse area of the Caustic Caverns?

I'm gonna spoiler this...better safe than sorry, don't want to ruin anything:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I've seen it happen right outside the door of the Caustic spawn. In the area near the dump truck but, they will go fight Chrystalisks that come from the Caustic pond so it's not easy to do there. To do it on Caustic you can lead the Varkyds from the spawn area towards that center Varkyd nest (the one with walls on either side) and double up the Varkyds to have a better shot at getting Vermi to evolve...but someone has to kill all the threshers first before you take aggro over there to combine.

Same at the farm house. At the start a tank has to run and lead the nearby Varkyd colonies back to the farm to combine them with the farm nest. Then run a lap around the house from time-to-time. Use puny weps and shoot out the openings just to keep their attention. And be ready to kill those buzzards that show up out of nowhere. 'bout 20 minutes, you'll know if it's gonna happen or not. Farm is usually easier because the cover. But without at least 1 properly equipped Siren...the team doesn't stand a chance.

Interesting. Any idea the max legit Vermis at once? The most I've seen claimed is two at the farm and only extremely rarely.

I've really got to unbog my 42 Axton so I can do the level 50 content but I'm a tad burnt out at the moment. Maybe once my XCOM squaddies get curb stomped by aliens tomorrow I'll want to go back to BL2. tongue.gif

Most I've seen first hand is 2. At the farm and they both evolved at the exact same time.

I have a theory but we haven't tested it out yet because we've (a whole army of fill in's that rotate and streamers) have been testing other theories out to try and narrow the evolution process down.

But my theory is simple but extremely hard to test: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It's the red Larval Varkyd that will eventually become Vermi. But try keeping an eye on each red Varkyd after they (numerous Varkyds) evolve to Super Bad Azz levels...it's impossible. The goop flying at everyone reaches totally insane levels. I'll see if I can get the video off of the streamer and cut it down--Vermi actually landed on me and proceeded to rip me a new one. It was hilarious.

Ellie is boss. biggrin.gif

And level 42 Commando vs level 44 Rabid Stalkers ends poorly. rolleyes.gif Time to grind out some levels, wheeeee... Or respec so I can have two turrets. thumb.gif

Wheee, level 44 now. Take that you Mutant Badass Varkids that give out tons of XP.

Also, Mechromancer Skill Tree up!! The Ordered Chaos skill tree is super freaky. This will definitely have to be played to be understood.

Lol. Can you post up shots of the item cards? I find most e-techs aren't that great unless you get a good combo with the manufacturer.

Also, Steam friend request sent. Cause everyone needs a 3rd commando. biggrin.gif
