    They also fixed the Guardian Rank issue where it went negative, and made vending machines sort by rarity.

    Wonder if that means the Item Of The Day will always be the rarest? I must have missed a few decent items by ignoring it, thinking the one you can see in the IOTD preview must be the rarest
    Nope, still isn't. Other items are sorted by rarity, but IOTD can still be green while the stuff below is blue or purple.

    @DrStrangelove Thanks, that's a shame. What's the point in them adding that nifty little preview if you have to open the machine and check every item anyway?

    I had a lv7 Epic Jakobs pistol from a vending machine that was easily my best gun for ages, and it cost about $500 (or whatever the BL currency is). Same for my current grenade- in fact I tend to find far better grenades in the machines thatn I find from drops, partly because grenade machines are everywhere.

    Patch has made split screen mode menu lag even worse.
    Now everytime you do anything in the menus like say put an item into junk the game lags horrendously. whereas before it just became a little jittery and only lagged when you first opened the menus.

    I'm enjoying my latest legendary grenade, sucks them in then throws them around in the air then slams them into the ground.

    @jack5255 Big buffs to Zane there (and nerfs to Amara and FL4K). Wonder if that puts Zane into a happer plaxe in end-game.

    Well this is just getting ridiculous now...

    I am inside the Mansion on Eden 6, playing Mayhem 2 with my level 50 Moze. I went downstairs in the library, 2 loot tinks were there, which I killed for 4 legendaries each. A couple of those legendaries give boosts to luck, I equip them, open their packs, 4 legendaries from one and three from the other.

    I will probably have to leave some of them behind :)

    Iíve hit a bit of a wall. Ranked level 15, I was getting absolutely battered by Kagawa Ball who is level 18. After numerous attempts and getting absolutely nowhere, Iíve decided to backtrack a bit and clean up some side missions to get some XP.

    Iíve done a couple now but getting 400xp for finishing a mission isnít helping me too much. Iíve managed to get to level 16 but I think Iíll need to do these side missions (I donít think Iíve even got that many to do) and basically just rinse and repeat killing enemies.

    On the plus side, I went back to an earlier area and killed a boss again who then dropped two legendary weapons (my first two). Theyíre way underlevelled, something like levels 8-10 or so, so Iím not sure how much damage theyíll do against level 18ís but weíll see.

    I found that boss quite easy by just hiding behind some pipes on the lower level popping out to shoot him with my radioactive pistol to chip away at his health

    Got my first legendary last night from a chest after defeating Captain Vaunt. Bit odd that he was lv17 when I fought him but chests after the fight were lv14 (including the legendary).

    It's still a decent gun though- The Companion. Guaranteed fire catching on crits. Sort of makes me want to bring a second character up to lv14

    Been playing this a bit round mates and I have to say in terms of actual feel it feels a lot more like Destiny than I expected. Still have a bit of that Gearbox 'tightness' mainly when going into the Siren fist slam but it's so much better than it was.

    Was using a rifle that fired sticky rounds detonated on reload. So much fun. However the damage to energy bars information isn't particularly reliable so I find myself concentrating on enemies far longer than I should to make sure the whole clip of explosive mines did in fact obliterate them. How enemies react seems to be best way to gauge fatality

    In sure I read or watched a video on this but... I had the understanding that you could do side missions at any time and they would scale to match where you are in the game. So you dont need to worry about ticking them all off before finishing the story.

    Im going back now before finishing the story off cleaning some up and it's not like that at all. Everything exploding in a mess of red from 1 shot and all the loot is pitiful.

    ?

    I'm thinking I should just finish the story now and then save the side missions for a second play through so they're fresh.


    Also the same deal with proving grounds. I definitely watched an official video that said I could go off and do those at any time... jump back into the story continue my progress then come back and so on. But all I see online are guides how to unlock the mode.
    If I try to play it currently it goes into a connecting online menu but I'm just wanting to go at it split screen co op.

    Is that an online only 4 player thing ?

    Finish the story, activate Mayhem Mode, and your remaining quests will be level 50.

    Proving Grounds require an ability that you earn at the end of the campaign (or near it anyway).

    You can do Circle of Slaughter anytime and it will adjust level, assuming you've found them in game (one on Promethea, one in Krondor's Hold(?) and one in a later location).

    Here's a fun fact: if I start my game offline, my Irradiated Shotgun does 18000 dps instead of the 2500 it does when online.

    I guess all the weapon values (drop rates as well I believe) are calculated server side, which is probably why the menus are so laggy.

    @neems

    I've heard people complaining about the nerfs and talking about how playing offline somehow undoes that. What exactly do you mean by offline? Console/launcher not connected, you set to offline in the in-game menu, or just not playing online multiplayer? I find it difficult to understand how going offline in any of these cases would undo the updates.

    As for the menus, I believe that's mostly because they're still using that garbage Flash-based 3rd party software for them (yes, Flash. In a 2019 AAA game). It was bad 10 years ago in BL1, it was worse 3 years later in BL2, and it's not gotten any better. I don't know what they were thinking.

    I had my only legendary change from orange to purple in the inventory yesterday. The stats are all the same, and I vaguely recall someone saying it's only temporary. But still, that was my one and only orange shiny!

    @DrStrangelove

    There doesn't seem to be an actual option in the game, I just disconnected my pc from the internet. It took a while to load as it was trying to sign me in, but it worked fine.

    I don't really need the higher DPS as I have started TVHM, but it would have been useful when I was playing on Mayhem 3.

    I see, thanks for the info. With in game, I meant the "Group Privacy" settings in the upper right of the main menu, where you can set to friends only, invite only and whatever. I'm pretty sure the "local only" option was called "offline" on launch, that's where my question came from.

    I just checked and that software (Autodesk Scaleform) has even been discontinued last year. Sure, BL3 development started years before, but using Flash has been anachronistic long before (and the issues in previous titles should have been a warning).
