I've lost over 500k in deaths already.

I lost close to 4mil trying Terra before I was level 50 with no legendary gear. I think the Siren that was in our group lost the least, ~ 2mil. Happens. Loot loot loot.

Play with a siren specced for healing on your road to 50, makes it easier.

true, but WOW that's a lot of money!

Other than buying ammo, money is kind of pointless in the game. I don't know that I've ever bought a weapon from a vending machine or seller.

I suppose gambling is a use too, but really that's just a way to get Eridium, imo.

I've been trying and trying to get those 3 borderlands logos....but I've never had any success!
When I get to lvl 50, I'm also going to tip moxxi quite a bit to get her two weapons again, as the ones I got, were useless at my current level.

Oh and on a random note....MY GAWD
you know that "Jenkingssssss" thing - where you have to kill the robot, who is "missing"? This is just part of the badass ranks, and completionist achievement.

The part where most people recommend finding him -> in the wildlife preserve....when I was going through the mission normally, holy mother of god - I had 4-5 midgets, all anti-loot ones, and ALL of them 45+ with two of them red skulled. I can't stress how many times I died trying to RUN past them...

This is the area:

For those having trouble fighting Terramorphous the Invincible, just get yourself a Bee Shield and a Fibber pistol and you will drop him in under a minute. Using Conference Calls against the Terramorphous post patch is just silly.

Oh I know exactly what you're talking about. I got 3 of them at once from those exact boxes he's talking about. Those loot enemies are absolutely ridiculous in TVHM.

The borderlands logos just give you a legendary (orange) weapon. Not really that special, since that spin comes up less than 1/1000 times. It's WAY better to just farm the treasure room at the end of the pirate DLC.

Moxxi's guns are pretty good, especially since they only cost 12-25k or something like that, but there are plenty of better endgame ones that you'll come across.

Need to try this. Not even sure if I have that pistol anymore, may have thrown it away.

I remember throwing mine away in normal mode, as it lied lol. Why is this pistol that good against the boss though?

The stats of the pistol aren't correct from what I remember. It was saying it did 3k damage but in fact only did 350. Something like that...

I saw from the description that's the weapon from Mal, that robot. But how is it farmed?

Yeah the specs are actually false for the most part. That's why it says in bold red text "Would I lie to you?"

There's actually a couple different variants of the gun. There's one which fires slow shotgun type pellets. This one does OK damage. There's another which when bounced off of walls or surfaces, will split into eight more surrounding the original. This is the one I am using and it does a buttload of critical damage. There's also another one which fires slow gravity-affected projectiles. The damage on this one is the weakest out of the three. When you complete the final "A Real Boy" mission, Mal will give you a random stats Fibber. I call this farming because to get the gun you want, you'll have you to keep alt-f4'ing after you turn the quest in. Do NOT save and exit as the game will already have remembered that you completely already therefore Mal will not give you any more Fibbers.

The best class that benefits from the Fibber is probably the assassin since he can specialize in high pistol damage. There's a couple videos on youtube which shows assassins taking down Terramorphous in 16s or less with the Fibber (post patch). Here's one of them:

Does that work better on Terra than the legendary revolver that fires a spread of 6 bullets? The Maggie, I think it's called?

Or is the fibber a way to get around the recent bee nerf, effectively adding the bonus damage to each "fragment" after rebounding?
