Preparing for TVHM?

#1emidasPosted 10/12/2012 2:26:39 PM
I know I'm a bit behind the curve (blame WoW, that dirty dirty mistress) but I am now finished P1 and about to move into TVHM as a lvl 33 Zer0. I have the epic sniper from Saturn and my lvl 27 Bee shield (I see people with different leveled shields, can he drop a bit higher leveled? I'm seeing 30-32), is there any other weapons/relics/mods I should farm before doing TVHM? I have a pretty good shotgun (591x14 I believe?) but I could always use a better one if it is available, and I could definitely use some elemental guns - pistol, sniper, or shotgun preferred.

Thanks!

You beat it at level 33? Jesus, I must've farmed Dukino's Mom too much or something, because I'm level 35 and I'm barely into the Eridium Blight. o_o

Don't waste too much time farming on playthrough 1. Those purples and oranges will lose value very fast on TVHM and you'll find yourself struggling unless you replace them for green and even whites as you go.

Most of my stuff was replaced by white drops in Liar's Berg on TVHM, so yes, farming is kinda pointless in PT1. Wish I knew that beforehand.

Wow, yeah. I completed every side quest with the exception of You.Will.Die.(Seriously) and the Hyperion Slaughter questchain. I farmed a lot early, but never really farmed anything past Henry (he took forever to drop my head!).

I farmed the warrior from level 32 to 35 before I moved onto TVHM. Your weapons should all get upgraded from the loot drops. But you'll still need to get better weapons fairly quickly in your second playthrough.
