I just went and killed Bad Maw about 6 or 7 times, each and every time he dropped one single eridium.. That sucks as far as farming goes.. Is there anything better?
If you go to the slot machine in "Dust" (middle of the map near far left) it gives you Eridium WAYYYY more often then the slots at Moxxis. Plus its $100 cheaper.
I just tried this, spent $5000 @ $235/spin and selling all the junk, so I got a lot of spins.. I only got eridium once (10 eridium for prize). But I DID get triple 7's like 5 times! The only thing I got from those was character skins with weapon manufacturer logos on it. Got a sweet Maliwan skin for my siren, and a Vladof for my commando. I also got the three Moxxi legs once, and just got a crappy blue shotgun. I think all slot machines are the same and it just comes down to luck.
Oh, and the machine in Dust is exactly the same price as the ones by Moxxi.
Stop taking exactly what I'm saying and repeating it as if its exactly what I said because it is. -Cryptospuridium
Does this method work after you've beaten and passed this part? Or it only works when you're currently on this mission/. Because I'm getting tired of this 1 or 2 Eridium he gives. And it's not all the time either. I fought him 5 times. He dropped Eridium twice.
I have Dysarthria. It's a Speech problem. Your question is answered now.
I'll farm him until I have about $20,000 saved up and then I'll go play the slots. It's the fastest way as far as I'm concerned, because it's not just about getting Eridium from him but also cash so you can use the slots to win more of it.
