    There's a side mission from the Sanctuary Bounty Board that sends you to the prison anyways. So, either way works.

    Well, you can sacrifice somebody to it. Requires two people, so I don't know if it gives anything.

    As to your second question, I haven't the foggiest.

    Love Thumper is one of those shields that grant bonus melee damage when the shield is depleted. It is a unique purple because it has a huge Roid damage bonus, and it's shield recharge delay is a staggering 250 seconds. I guess the point behind it is that once it is down, you get access to that huge buff for a very long time.

    Dosen't seem like it's worth it though, which is why I ask before testing.
    There's a trick, though -- the LT is the only Maylay shield I know of that makes your punches explode on contact. If you can keep dishing out punches, the LT's explosions are nearly as effective in clearing out groups of trash mobs as Flame of the Firehawk's Novas. As I said to my brother as I was grinding Roid Rage: "This is Brick's favorite shield, he just doesn't know it yet."

    Still, I'd rather have my gimmick Amp shield with 0 drain and +2735 damage.

    You're looking for an orange-quality shield called "The Bee." It's a potential drop from the target of an assassination sidequest given by Mordecai late in the game. And it is indeed gloriously OP: (ENDGAME SPOILS)

    Pair that sucker up with a high-ROF, high-pellet-count shotgun and the fights against Jack and the Warrior are almost trivial. Since I was doing 30k+ damage per shell, the Warrior in particular was never able to launch an attack before Jack ordered it back into the lava. And since it never attacked, my shield never went down, so I never lost the Amp bonus ...

    So, I got this game three days ago. I've clocked 30 hours. I may be addicted.

    Zer0 is amazingly fun. Haven't really tried the others, beyond my co-op Maya, but I love sneaky characters so Zer0 is a pretty good fit...

    Nah, Brick's favourite shield is Order.

    +1200 roid damage and when you're also using Law (revolver with +100% melee damage) 20% of melee damage returned as health.

    It's really really hard to die using that combo.

    It gets to the point where you'll always have Law equipped, even when it's just a level 15 gun in comparison to the level 40s and 45s you'll be running in TVH mode.

    The Bee isn't a gimmick, it's just absolutely ****ing overpowered.

    And, technically, Law gets to the point where you won't use it at all.

    Technically. Then you get Law and Order in TVH mode, and you'll go back to using them all the time! Except when fighting Terramorphous. Holy. Crap.

    Not a lot of reason to go melee in TVH mode, though. Many Will Fall... well, it falls off rreally hard. Not to mention that a skill that makes it easy to take out enemies who are already easy to take out is kind of the definition of win-more, regardless of how fun it is in normal mode.

    So I take it taking down Terra with the Law & Order combo didn't exactly go as planned.

    So has anyone taken it down at all? Does it drop that golden key? Because I've not found the dang thing anywhere, and I'm dying to know what's in the chest in Sanctuary.

    Terra's loot is massively better than that of the chest. It drops purple or pink items of your level, and keys are obtained by pre-ordering, signing up for Gearbox Shift, and promotions.

    That chest only ever drops purple weapons of your level. It's totally uninteresting, and always dependent on luck.

    Or use Gearbox Shift for a free key. Randy Pitchford commonly tweets out 10k use codes for Golden Keys.

    It drops a special Nova shield, title, or gun each time you kill it.

    So I heard during playthrough 2 you should skip all sidequests with unique rewards since they scale once you hit playthrough 2.5 and that way you can get the best level uniques out there.

    I presume this means you can't reset quests or anything. So, taking "The Bee" for example, how do you actually farm that? Does the boss keep respawning even if you don't have the quest anymore?

    Also I've noticed I had to put the FOV up to 110 and still play at a smaller resolution on my PC otherwise I find the game is pretty nausea inducing. I've had the issue before on some third person games with wonky cameras (Gears of War during the roaddie run or RE 5, both on PC). I had a bit of the issue with Borderlands 1 but could play full screen without issue. I wonder if there's some graphic settings that could help with it. I also noticed a gear bit of horizontal screen tearing which is unusual in games. Vsync clears up vertical tearing but I rarely see horizontal tearing. Its pretty obvious in this one though.

    The vast majority of "go here, kill this specific guy" quests in BL2 do have the target respawn, if only because most of the targets are the subject of Badass Rank objectives. From experience, this one certainly does.

    EDIT: The "Brick's Favorite Shield" comment was in reference to the bio sheets that Gearbox put out in the weeks leading up to release -- the only thing listed in Brick's "dislikes" was "things that don't explode when punched." With the Love Thumper, that's exactly nothing, so ...

    Anyone else have thoughts on Zer0? I'm trying to decide which class to play and I'm hearing conflicting things about that class. Is Deception that useful if you're sniping? Seems like bonus damage for just one bullet. I guess it's okay since it has a shorter cooldown and there's good Kill Skills?

    I'm not sure how deception will get at higher levels, but at lower levels it seems just a little bit too short for a lot of things. By the time you release the image and get into sniping mode you have very little time to actually aim the shot.
    The other issue is that it isn't really needed against the run of the mill enemies you'll be facing, as in most cases a critical shot with a sniper rifle already does enough damage to kill or mostly kill a lot of things.
    Personally I've found it hard to actually remember to use it when at range and the quick cooldown is kind of meaningless if you aren't spamming it. I think in that case it works a lot better for close range and getting the quick melee hits in.

    If you are wanting a sniping role, its not like any of the other classes have much for sniping skills either. Maya's stasis is about the only thing that can be used by a sniper at all... and I'm not sure if it has the range to be used with a sniper build (I haven't played her yet) He has some very good sniper skills, I just don't think that deception itself adds that much to it.

    The range on Phaselock is sufficient...but if the target gets suspended in a way that blocks its critical hit zone from you at that range, you'll have to live with hitting it for normal damage repeatedly, or sniping at something else.

    "sufficient"? You can phase lock something so far away it takes a sniper scope to see it as more than a dot. If you can see it, you can phase lock it.

    ... and then the victim will claim you cheated. (that's an actual in game line from some of the bandit types, not a silly player complaint)

    I find the duration for Decepti0n long enough to reload, aim and shoot someone in the head, personally.

    You can also use Decepti0n while aiming, you know.

    I guess I'm just good at playing Zer0 or something.

    Deception is fantastic if you are fast enough to line up your shots. It makes you a boss grinder.

    Alternately - don't aim. Decepti0n works on shotguns, you know. So go right up to the enemy's grill while invisible and shoot twenty explosive pellets inside its face. I did it a lot against higher HP enemies while I was sniping with Zer0 (until I had enough skill points saved up to get melee up to par, then respecced 100% bloodhed). Go invisible, run up to huge enemy, wait for Decepti0n to be almost over, shotgun, cough a bit from inhaling the red mist the enemy turned into .

    Got Old Slappy's legendary shotgun. It's the most accurate shotgun in the game, made by Jakobs (shock and awe! Jakobs made something accurate?!), that puts out 3Kx7 spread of damage, with a 4 shell mag and a good scope to go with the kickass accuracy (ever shoot someone with a shotgun on a dime? I have now)!

    I'll grind him at level 50 for one to top my level 44.
