When is the "best" time to do DLCs? During PT2, to level up, or level 50, because of the possibilities of good quest rewards/loot?
I am playing through right now with the intent of taking side quests in PT2 at 50 so that I can get the best quest rewards. That being said, I am nervous about how slow leveling up is going to be without quests.
Don't know what level you're currently AT, but if you do Torgue's in the late 30s to early / mid 40s you'll power level up to 50 from the Bar Brawl. I started the Torgue campaign at 43 or 44, and hit 45 before making it to the bar. Used the bar as a way to farm Torgue Tokens and Moxxi pictures, hit 50 before finishing the challenge for collecting tokens. Might be best to have a friend for that part though.
