    It is probably like having a constant golden chest following you wherever you go. And if it is anything like I have seen that comes from the golden chest, then the shit truly is shit. I probably won't waste my time.

    If you read the thread a few gearbox employees have chimed in. It looks like the chance of getting specific items on specific days (Shotguns yesterday, grenades today) has been increased. As with anything you will probably see more grenades today than you usually do.

    I mostly play offline when doing farming runs.. but It might be worth it to become connected for this event.

    Actually there's some sneaky fellas who figured out how to tweak drop rates long ago

    It turns out the memory addresses are really easy to access and you can tweak them at run time with a decent injector. By default the weightings are something like this:
    White - 200
    Green - 50
    Blue - 20
    Purple - 1
    Orange- 0.1

    Best part is, if I tweak them while the game is running, any players playing coop with me will also benefit as my machine dictates drops.

    I've been playing this weekend. It makes little to no difference if you've reached level 50. Blue and Purple drops with the better stats are more likely to drop, but that's about it. If you're at the farming stage you're unlikely to get much worthwhile.

    I found a couple of decent shotguns, but after a couple of hours last night I didn't find squat for grenades. Today is snipers and tomorrow is increased Varkid evolution rate, so we shall see.

    I might FINALLY be able to get Verminivorous to spawn?

    If I can manage to get off my ass at some point today and rebuild my comp, I'll be able to get in on that

    Anybody else having a problem with the game freezing on them this weekend? Whether I'm hosting or joining somebody else's session, the game keeps freezing periodically.

    ^^

    I had a few freezes myself but they only lasted 1-2 seconds. I disconnected from being online and they went away. Could be a coincidence.

    I haven't been able to get Verminivorous to spawn yet... but I haven't really tried too hard. It's on my list of things to do. I dont have 4 buds to play with so my chances are slim.

    I was able to pick up The siren and gunzerker legendary class mods from Pyro Pete. I'm just missing a Legendary Mechromancer and I'll be good to go!

    I've spawned Vermi a few times before, it was a pita but it's worth it if you want a ridiculous fight and you just want to pump bullets into something.

    From my Vermi spawning travels:

    I've kited Badass Varkids / Super Badass Varkids for half an hour or more at a time without being able to get it to spawn. Gonna get a group together and harass them again tonight and see what happens.

    I need to find that, do you know what it does? I have Slayer of Terramorpheous, but despite it giving you 20 skill points, it's in the higher up skills across all three trees, so you can't capitalise on it. They also don't compliment one another at all :/

    the legendary classmods are Vermivorous drops(and probably pete too and then random spawns on vending machines). The legendary mods I got usually focus their skills on the first skills over all three skilltrees. Additionally they increase three value, on my Siren its burn damage, burn time and I think cooldown rate. They're real good classmods in general.

    The BL2 wiki has some good info - the class mods will vary - there are tiers as to how good they are.

    Apparently the Commando one can affect SIX parts of the skill tree and can allocate up to five points in each. Yes, it's possible to get one that effectively gives you 30 free skill points - and I thought Slayer of Terramorphous was good...

    The Legendary Mechromancer looks way better than Slayer (which is not as good as some of the purple stuff, imho).

    Edit - seriously wtf! :

    So today Vermi has a higher chance of spawning as long as you have 2+ people in your game.

    Hopefully he's not just easier to spawn but has better drop rates. Nothing beats waiting for him to evolve to drop a couple blues.

    Me and bruzz spawned vermi on one side of Tundra, he ninja looted the Norfleet so I ran across the map, spawned Vermi again and got another one. Hope that reassures you a bit. :p

    Bruh, invite me for some B2 weapons/mission runs, all the Mexicans that used to coop with me only play Dota 2 nowadays.

    Have all the DLC.
