Question concerning Pete, quality of drops and loot scaling.

#1Machspeed2Posted 1/4/2013 10:35:21 AM
Would visiting Hyperius to force a 4-player scale benefit Pete's drops or is he unaffected?

Unaffected as all Raid bosses are meant for 4 players anyway

Pete does not set the game to 4 players like gee or hyperious. Visiting gee or hyperious first does indeed have an effect on Pete's loot table.

Seconded, specifically in regards to legendary drops. Is there a noticeable difference?

Gee and Hyperious sets the game to 4 players on entering their respective arenas. You don't have to kill them to have this done, simply walk in and walk out. You'll notice the change very quickly as more bada** enemies will spawn.

This has been very useful when trying to farm Vermivorous the Invincible, Pete, and even chubby enemies as they will spawn more often. it also will cause the game to have higher loot chances.

I'm currently look on the gear box site for a topic where 4 different people tested this with pete runs. it works quite well for increasing loot chances.

This is fascinating. Where have you found info on this topic; the official forums?

if it tells you how much it's helped me out, last night doing this i got:

(shock) sherdifier
Madhouse
Norfleet
emperor
2x legendary assassin class mods
