There are a lot of "Looking For..." (LF) topics and requests all the time, however when asking for lower level gear you find that you quickly outlevel its usefulness! This is a method to get high quality gear of the exact level you need consistantly, and often with no hassle.

Quality of Loot Derived from the Golden Box (Guaranteed)

Weapons ~ Very Rare (Purple) or E-tech (Fuschia)
Rocket Launchers ~ Very Rare (Purple)
Shields ~ Very Rare (Purple)
Grenades ~ Very Rare (Purple)
Class Mods ~ Very Rare (Purple)
Relics ~ Rare (Blue) or Very Rare (Purple)

What you'll need:

~Two PS3 Controllers
~Two Game Saves with Sanctuary access.

How to do it:

Step 1) Select your first character (P1). This character needs Sanctuary access. It does not need anything else other than this. This character's only duty will be to "host" the lobby, make sure it is not the character with the level gear you need.

Step 2) Enter Sanctuary with Player 1 (P1). I generally place this character next to the Fast Travel Station to avoid uncessecary AutoSave.

Step 3) Press "Start" on the P1. If you haven't turned on your 2nd controller yet, do so, and then press "X." Select your own profile and press "X" again.

Step 4) Press the Triangle button to select a character, and use the option "Choose existing character..." This character should be the the one you need to level appropriate gear for.

Step 5) After accepting the character selection, use P1 to select "RESUME" from the Pause Menu. It should give a Character Confirmation screen, use "X" to Confirm.

Step 6) Going back to the P2 controller, manuever your way to the Golden Box and you should see that P2 has 11 Golden Keys to use. Go forth and open and retrieve from the Golden Box 11 times.

Step 7) Any and all loot that you have gotten now from 11 keys, drop in an easily accessible area. Using P2 controller, press "Start" followed by "O." Select the option "Save and Leave Game."

Step 8) Repeat steps 3 through 7 until satisfied.

This board sure needs a couple stickys. There is a lot of information that is honestly never changing, and has been highly useful. Even if we only have 3~4 good stickys, it alters the momentum of the type and style of posts. This one should help a TON of newcomers and various casual gamers so they don't feel so helpless.

Thank you so far for the support, I will begin making more solid attempts in the future. I'd like to try either a formal introduction to basic game mechanics (which skills take precedence over others mathmatically) and which combonations are savy to the advanced gamers.
