Ideal levels for the DLCs in playthrough 1?

#1casedawgzPosted 11/20/2012 7:26:23 PM
I have both dlcs but haven't played them. Gonna start playing through as either Gaige or Zero for the first time. What's a good level to hit the DLCs?

I was in PT 1 and I'm lvl 50 and everyone was at lvl 30 so far. What you could do is play it and if their to strong you can make like a nomad and "JUST LEAVE!!!"

I was 32 maybe when I started Pirate DLC and was a little over leveled. Finished pirate dlc at level 35.

I think the DLC scales to a certain point. I started it up in pt1 with my level 22 mechromancer and the enemies were between 22 and 24 so far.

i belive 32-35 for pirates, and i started the new one at 37 and everyone was 30 and not going higher then 32

I think pirates scales, everytime I do it the enemies are about my level, this is from several playthroughs.

Idk about torgue, but I would guess it is the same.

They both scale to 30-35 in PT 1.

Level 15 is the earliest you should start them. It will be that level when you get there if you go at 15. Quests scale with you up to the 30s.

I also found that every mission (except for the Tier 3 battle missions and the "Pete the Invincible" mission) capped at lv.30 on Normal mode. The Tier 3 missions (including the Tier 3 rematches) seem to scale to your character's level, from what I can tell (my lv.50 Siren was getting these as lv.50 missions ON NORMAL MODE), and the "Pete the Invincible" mission is obviously lv.50, seeing as it's effectively a raid boss mission.
