UVHM = what TVHM should have been.

Tried it for a couple of missions on my Siren last night before BF3 stomping: wow. Blasting "Rocket" by Smashing Pumpkins I hopped in and...went completely wild. eek.gif Definitely see myself playing through again soon.

I've tried. I really, REALLY tried to get back into Borderlands after beating it with my Commando a few months ago. Never finished first one but I really enjoyed BL2 all the way through. I played through expansions so far and I liked them. But try as I might, no matter what other character iv'e tried to do, I keep going back to Commando and trying to enjoy the game on another play through even on Vault Hunter mode and I just become so.... freaking bored.

I've tried an few times after playing a few other games to change it up but playing Borderlands for a second play through just isn't gonna happen for me, it just so damn bored after about an hour. I really tried though. I'll play the last expansion as I paid for it with season pass and then likely delete the game from my Steam library, I still got Skyrim, HOTS, Guild Wars 2, Halo 4 and other games needing my attention

I've just noticed this, and I'm not sure if anyone else is experiencing this.. but I can't access weapons stored in the Vault in sanctuary with other Characters. Does anyone else have this issue?

I am able to access each character's vault. You are talking about the vault and not the bank correct?

Is the secret stash still covered? If so, you need to do the Claptrap mission first.

Yup, the only sucky thing about having a level 2 legendary gun: Couldn't give it to my newbie characters that needed it.

Yeah I did end up doing that, but a few of my characters didn't get to use it, since none of my friends were interested in playing at the time, and I didn't trust randoms. Not a big deal, really. The beginning part of the game is cheese anyway.

For those of you who are looking for a fun Mechromancer build to play in UVHM, this is a guide for what I am currently using!
Mechromancer Build: Continuous AoE of Death! (Click to show)
Mechromancer Build: Continuous AoE of Death!


What It Do
You run up to enemies and unload on them while your repeated AoE elemental damage destroys them. You have the versatility of going survivability or DPS, depending on which shields you choose.

Skill Tree Selection
http://www.bl2skills.com/mechromancer.html#500000000000352005150500412050151150

Explanation of Certain Skill Choices
1. Close Enough - Unless you are at point blank range, your primary weapon is not a very accurate gun. This becomes painfully so once you start building up your Anarchy stacks. What this skill does is allow missed shots to have a 50% bouncing towards an enemy and dealing 50% damage. What is also allows you to do is rain bullets from above and still hit enemies.
2. Evil Enchantress, Wires Don't Talk, Electrical Burn - These can be considered the holy trinity of your skill build. WDT buffs all electric damage, EE buffs all elemental damage after you kill someone, and EB has a 20% chance of dealing equal fire damage to however much electrical damage you did, which given this build, is an absurd amount all the time.
3. Blood Soaked Shields - This is such a great skill and really goes along way in keeping you alive. It also synergizes very well with the nova effects of your shield of choice. When maxed out, once you kill an enemy you gain back all your shield for a tiny cost of 5% your life, easily made up by activate Discord or your primary weapon and instantly fulfills the nova recharge requirement.
4. The Nth Degree - Combined with Close Enough, this makes you hugely dangerous. When maxed out, every 5th bullet that hits an enemy hits another nearby enemy, including bullets that bounce off the ground or walls due to the Close Enough skill. Considering you are always firing your primary weapon, that is a lot of bullets that can bounce off and hit another enemy!

Weapons
1. Primary Weapon - Sapping Hell (AR): This is your bread and butter. It deals a healthy dosage of electrical damage, which quickly takes down enemy shields (plus few things resist electricity in the game) and heals you for 3% of the damage you deal with it. Killing enemies while healing yourself sounds great doesn't it?
2. Secondary Weapon - Paralaxis Norfleet (Bazooka): Use this when you get downed for quick 2nd winds. It deals a ton of AoE electrical damage. An electric Badaboom or Plazma Cannon are great alternatives as well.
3. Grenade - Longbow Storm Front: This a huge AoE of auto-targeting shock damage and splits into multiple smaller child grenades that do essentially the same thing. I prefer longbow over homing personally, because you can control where you want to place it. A slag Bouncing Betty is also a good alternative to buff your damage.
4. Backup Weapon - Unkempt Herald (Pistol): Explosive weapon that does insane damage and fires at a decent clip. This weapon is great for pretty much anything you will run into in the game and is one of my favorite weapons.
5. Other Weapon - Analytical ***** (SMG): This is for Ion Loaders as they are resistant to electricity. I believe there are a few raid bosses that are as well. When you see Ion Loader, switch to this weapon and destroy them. A good alternative is a corrosive Plasma Caster or Miss Moxxi's Bad Touch.

Gear
Shield - Black Hole: This shield will be what constantly gets you up. Here is how it works; when you or your shields go down, it sucks enemies to you and releases a huge electric nova (doesn't nova when you go down though). Basically that means it keeps people around for you to kill at all times! A great alternative for this would be Flame of the Firehawk which has the highest nova DPS output in the game.
Mod - Wired Catalyst: It is so awesome how well this mod synergizes with this build. It grants a huge chunk of team elemental damage which greatly buffs your already stacked electrical damage and the plus skills all contribute towards your skills that relate to electrical damage (Wires Don't Talk, Evil Enchantress, and Shock Storm). An acceptable alternative is Speedy Jill of All Trades which buffs your AR damage and magazine as well as a few other skills that are useful.
Relic - Elemental Relic (Shock): This gives you a huge damage buff to electrical attacks, which is what your build is centered around dealing. Also keep around a Blood of the Seraph relic if you have the Hammerlock DLC to swap to when your Anarchy stacks hit over 100. A good alternative to Blood of the Seraph would be Blood of Terramorphous.

Battle Tactics
1. Get up close to enemy (Sapping Hail shoots at a unique arc)
2. Shoot enemy with Sapping Hail (this will also heal you smile.gif)
3. Build up stacks and damage buffs
4. When pressured, throw grenade and back off
5. Prematurely reload your weapon to activate Discord to heal up and deal more damage. Reload again to toggle it off.
6. Swap to survival relic if you want after hitting 100 stacks.

AoE Sources
1. Your shield of choice releases huge AoE damage
2. Whenever you reload your weapon, "Shock and Aaaugh" releases an electrical explosion
3. Whenever you kill an enemy with a critical hit, he releases AoE electrical damage.
4. Your grenade obviously does a huge amount of AoE damage

Where to Farm Loot
- Sapping Hail is the mission reward for Bandit Slaughter in Fink's Slaughterhouse
- Norfleet is farmed from Vermivorous the Invincible who TBH is a PITA to spawn and kill.
- Unkempt Herald is farmed by killing Savage Lee and can be purchased from a Torgue vending machine
- ***** is farmed from the Bunker
- Black Hole is farmed from Foreman Jasper in Opportunity (construction site)
- Blood of Seraphs can be purchased from the Seraph Vendor is Oasis. For those without the DLC, Blood of Terramorphous can be farmed from, well Terramorphous
- Elemental Relic and Wired Catalyst Mod are farmed normally AKA kill things and open chests until you find them
- Storm Front is farmed from the Splinter Group rats Bloodshot Stronghold
