There was a post yesterday/the other day about the new dlc being particularly tough on Krieg. Was it tough on a hellborn krieg or just his character in general. I'm gonna play it for the first time tonight and I would like to enjoy the story the first time around. I don't want to be frustrated the entire time.
tl;dr Is the new dlc really tough on Krieg, or hellborn Krieg?
I went through it solo with him in UVHM and it wasn't that bad. Main problem is that the resistant enemies don't ignite so often times I had to grenade myself to keep the Firehawk active but they still take plenty of damage if you slag them first. There were only a couple fights that actually gave me a problem and those were the dragons since the mainly stayed out of the range of my firehawk.

I went down mania and blood lust tree. I run love thumper with explosive mod and relic and I haven't been having any trouble at all. If there is something that I can't beat the crap out of I just switch to my Alkaline bee and Sandhawk.

The topic yesterday was focused more on a melee krieg. Which honestly he is pretty difficult to do well with in UVHM against flying enemies. However, I never found any area particularly difficult with melee/explosive krieg.
As mentioned Hellborn is a different story due to the extreme amount of fire resistance in the DLC. I want to say EVERYTHING resist it making it hard. I can say I never played Hellborn very long cause I couldn't get it to jibe with my play style (I couldn't keep myself on fire long enough before my shield started to regen on FotFH was useless) It was fun exploding everywhere, but it seemed suboptimal to me.
If you can get the fire to stack, it should be fine. Melee Krieg definitely is worst off against the flying enemies (which happen to be more of the stronger ones it felt) than the gun one, But the melee can crowd clear a lot faster in the DLC than hellborne.
