The nice thing about the dpuh is it's early in the playthrough, and really easy to farm. Couple that with a decent shield and some form of slag and you're set every couple levels.

Just suggestions, do what works for you. Everybody likes to level differently.

I still really like running the Immortal Woods for xp since it's early in the Tiny Tina dlc. Great xp with all the treants, some chests to farm, plus bee shields. It's a win win.

I usually play 99% solo on Borderlands as well, always have. I only play co op with a couple people I know and trust. If I ever join someone's host game I let them lead and collect everything, too many ninja looters out there.

If you ever change your mind let me know.

thanks. holy s*** exp is harder to come by in UVHM. people acted like BL TPS was ridiculous, but i've gained like 3 levels doing quests, and i'm halfway through the story now.

and i truly despise rabid stalkers. they were kinda bad enough before, but just fought off three of them, phaselocked one, couldn't even kill it before going into FFYL and dying. second time around, phaselocked to gather then in one place and slagged them, used a topneaa that was lucky enough to drop for me (that i kinda feel like i should give to gaige cause it's shock, but eh)

Yeah, rabid stalkers are a real pain, I try to stay away from areas with them while leveling through uvhm if I can help it. Rabid skags aren't quite as bad, they give great xp and there are quite a few of them that spawn in the arid nexus badlands by bonehead 2.0. Plus you can farm Saturn in that area for some nice xp as well.

Only downfall is it's much later in the playthrough.

tbh i dislike rabid skags, too, but at least they're also not invisible half the time, with a shield to boot.

PITA i can't phaselock invisible foes (another issue occasionally with fighting the zafford dude repeatedly, but usually it's turn, use phaselock, shoot him dead, and then phaselock now will drift and just utterly f*** up 3/4ths to all of the waves of the zaffords coming out of the building, heh. ruin, helios, converge, and sub-sequence are f***ing awesome.)
still leveling up, though i've got like 6 levels to go now.

Nice. Now you only have to get to 72, then OP8.

Or not?

nah. like i said, i don't particularly like UVHM in bl2, so i've just gone 'f*** it' with most characters. but, to actually get the build i wanted for maya right, i needed to get to a certain level, as well as past 61 for a legendary binder com.

but now i'm done with that, and kinda thinking of taking a break from BL in general, for a while.

I am playing a siren in UHVM (only level 55 ATM.) Any chance you can post details of your characters build and gear?

tbh i was mostly just using the maggie to shoot zafford over and over, really, till i got to 66, so it's not like it's some insanely good thing/idea.

hell, i don't even have level 66 guns, really because after i got there and got the legendary com i wanted i was more or less done using that character, but i'll tell you what i got/like. it's probably not even that optimal for uvhm, really, but it should give you an idea.

skill wise, key points are essentially ruin, to add slag, shock and corrode DOT to your action skill, suspension, to keep it around a long time, converge, to bring enemies together to make a group all get slagged, as well as closer for sub-sequence, to make phaselock chain to multiple foes, able to trigger ruin again.

at it's best, and i posted a video of this, i used phaselock on zafford, killed him off, it went to a lackey of theirs, phaselocked them, pulled them all to one spot, with my gun fire help, killed them in less than a second, immediately hit another, killed him, immediately hit another.... like 5 times in under 5 seconds.

so: i'd go cataclysm first: foresight 5/5, immolate maybe 4/5, heilos 1/5 (adding fire DOT to your action skill, as well as the legendary binder com boosts it), i like 1/5 backdraft, 1/1 cloud kill, 5/5 chain reaction, 5/5 reaper (amazing skill. just f***ing amazing, thank f*** it's above 50% health), 1/5 blight phoenix (i just kinda like it, also gives some more points you can toss where you want, flicker, though your skill itself will be DOT like crazy, more immolate, bacldraft, heilos, whatever, but blight phoenix isn't that useful damage wise) and ruin of course.

then, motion: accelerate 5/5, suspension 5/5 (with this build, we need as long an uptime on phaselock as possible, it's not just needing to be up long enough to kill any one foe), converge 1/1, inertia 4/5 (little bit of shield restoration with her good health restore's awesome), 5/5 quicken, 5/5 subsequence (5/5 gives it 100% chance to chain to other foes.

then harmony (i actually suggest 1 point in sweet release the entire time, one health orb's nice) 4/5 mind's eye, 1/5 sweet release (it'll be 6/5 with the com, so healing's fine) and 5/5 wreck and honestly, that's where i stopped. there's like 6 more kill points so you could put them wherever, kinda, don't get thoughtlock, you could do 1 rez, 4 elated, restoration or sustenance, for a more co-op healer ish idea, sweet release is fine at 6/5 (remember, every time you kill a foe. you can kill a few foes with every phaselock, now, with subsequence, so that's multiple times you could get sweet release to activate in a given time period, rather than once an action skill use.)

as for gear, like i said, i'm not really geared up, because it was just killing zafford and tubby enemies for the legendary com, but i like the sandhawk (lots of pellets, still using a level 30 slag version i got a while back, for when action skill's in cooldown), maggie (mostly because i was killing zafford anyway, good way to make sure you've got a leveled gun, also she gets a lot of elemental DOT with action skills anyway), topneaa (nice 'oh s***' launcher, especially with it's better AOE and converge grouping foes) and i'm actually using the heart breaker shotgun (fast, accurate, moxxi weapon, and isn't an ammo type i'm already using) but of course, there's plenty of other/better weapons out there, just what i was using.

main gear that's important to this: legendary binder com. +5 reaper, heilos, suspension, wreck, sweet release.

it's pretty fun, 50% shorter cooldown, and multiple phaselocks + ruin means you often don't even need to use a slag weapon, hell, i mostly use that slag sandhawk more or less just in case i get done with one wave of foes, and a badass shows up after phaselock ends (the two badass psychos in frostburn canyon's a good example).

plus, massive use of her phaselock skills, like wreck damage bonus and lots of healing orbs coming out, with rez taken it's basically an offensive healer, too, and DOT might not be as strong, but all of them at once (and cloud kill, especially with converge grouping foes) does help some. AOE weapons might be a better use with this build, as well, if interested.
