I have 500 eridium, so with nothing better to spend it on, I go throw a couple hundred in the Tiny Tina slots...after a ton of dice rolls of 1 and 2 and 2 vault symbols followed by junk, I was starting to think to myself "There's no way this is just pure math...they had to have done something so that it's harder than it should be to get something good from these, because it's so ****ing rare"

I hit both machines again, 4 Vault symbols followed by junk.

I hit the machines again. 3 Vault symbols. Pearlescent.

It's a ****ing Storm.

AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I haven't played in awhile but to be fair, there weren't many pearlescents that I liked. But hey, at least you got something, right? I remember dumping hundreds of eridium down buttstallion's throat before and got NOTHING but junk. Not even any junky pearls or legendries.

I would've spent it on Butt Stallion.

If nothing else it's faster than the slots because stuff is just pooped or puked out so you don't need to pick them up before using more eridium.

Yeah, I guess I'll try Butt Stallion next time I feel like doing this

though I still have to finish the DLC story first, which I don't want to do now unless I have good gear to make it go by faster

AAAAAAHHHHHH

Yes, it's random, with a severe bend towards the house, the house wins WAY more often than the player does.

or go play something else..... you obviously don't like the game

Honestly, when do you feel the need to aim for crits when everything is on fire? "xliner"

The Butcher is not half bad.

But he is so entertaining to read, plus again, he doesnt beg for dupes or PL and seems to genuinely enjoy the game otherwise he would have moved on by now.

Isn't the Butcher generally considered awesome? I want a fire one to take on Hyperius...

Hey, something I was just thinking...could the Storm work well on Dexiduous? Those orbs it leaves might land right around the weak points, if my shot hits close enough, and they'll automatically hit the closest target. The wiki says the weak spots can take shock damage...
