You can equip trinkets any time. Just select the little box to the left of your equipped weapons

I got a weapon trinket from beating the Agonizer.  Pissed me off to no end.

I finally cleaned up all the side stuff and made it to Nekrotafeyo.  I'm 10-15 levels above everything I run into, so stuff dies quick if I bother to shoot at it.  I'm just running past most of the smaller stuff.

I'm through with the main game and clearing out side missions now, and I have found the most annoying one of all time. "Transaction Packed," where you're playing a beta version of a game and protecting Lana.

While I totally understand that they're parodying shitty game releases and microtransactions, I almost turned the Xbox off three times before I could finish it. Holy balls, was that woman annoying.

I'll be hearing THEY'RE ATTACKING in my sleep tonight.

My mistake. I was referring to the Artifact slot.

Just looked it up and I'm not far enough along in the game to have unlocked it yet.

I like playing the slot machines at Moxxi's since you can get Gold upgrades at your level when you hit jackpots, so I pretty much kill everything I can and grab all the loot I can so I will always have plenty of cash on hand since the cost of playing slots goes up exponentially as you level up.

Has anyone else done the Buff Film Buff side mission?

I'm fairly sure it was glitched. It just kept respawning shit every time I'd take two steps. I had to fight two Super Raging Badass Daddy Goliaths, and - no shit - at least nine Anointed something or others. Hell, there was yet another one stalking around after I turned the mission in. I just ran away.

It was beyond ridiculous. At least I got some decent loot out of it.

I think Gearbox has made a conscious effort to reel in final boss fights after the combined obscenities of the boss fights at the end of the B1 regular campaign and that Claptrap's Robo Revolution abortion.

Crawmerax can also eat a bag of barbequed rat testicles.

Weird.  I finished that mission with no problems.  I even cheated a little because you can clear out some of the areas where enemies spawn with a vehicle.

I never fight Goliaths head on.  I try to dome them to knock off their helmets first while there are still a lot of enemies around and then let them run around and massacre anything that moves. 

Once they're done doing my dirty work for me, I use my Special to kill them and then reap the rewards.  If the bad guys murder the Goliath before he strangles everyone with their own intestines, I mosey up and pick off the wounded survivors.

I think they kinda put themselves in the same box that Bioware did in ME3. 

Spoiler

The enemy needs a full sized planet to imprison it, and it eats stars.  There's no way to fight something like that directly.  So they have to come up with little shit for you to fight.

Other end thought

Spoiler

I'm guessing one of the DLC's is gonna involve finding Lilith.

RUkered Got to see melraz’s favorite farming technique in the voracious canopy last night.  We were fighting about enough of the little fuckers to write Hamlet.

After the Agonizer fight, all the bosses felt underwhelming.  I died a couple times against the final boss, but I felt like they were cheap deaths where I got caught behind something and couldn't get a shot on any enemies while fighting for my life.

I hit my first boss fight road bump with Katagawa Ball and then it was the Agonizer.

Now it's the Hog of Fervor but I don't have to beat the Hog to finish the campaign.  This is a matter of stubborn pride.

Katagawa Ball almost made me rage quit until they fixed it so his shields stopped regenerating after you die.

Personally I don't think any of the bosses should heal back to max after you die.

You're already paying a cash penalty for every death and it's highly possible you may get dropped a few more times before you crack the code on a boss or simply get lucky enough to outlast it.

By that time, you may have dropped tens of thousands of dollars to New U.

No Bueno.

I agree with this 100%.  The frustrating thing about the Agonizer fight for me was that it got to the point where I was spending 15 minutes dodging, ducking, and jumping over obstacles only for me to mistime something and die right as his shield is going down.  I probably lost 100K before I beat it.  It was to the point where I was running out of ammo, but couldn't afford to go by extra ammo storage.  I didn't even feel satisfied after I beat it, I was just frustrated.

A lot of the really nasty bosses work much better with at least two folks, just so you can cheese them.  I ran the Agonizer with melraz twice where I was completely under leveled.  He did all the damage pretty much. I just stayed up on top of the ledge in case he died.  Then my job was just to stay alive long enough to get him to respawn and get back in the fight.

If any of you are playing as Amara, make sure to invest in that Guardian Angel perk. It's saved my ass many times in the fghts with The Agonizer and Troy Calypso.

Yeah, I beat it with a friend.  It was easy as hell with two people, because one of us was pretty much always behind him shooting the big tank on the back causing a lot of damage while the other was dodging the knife, spikey thing, and the saw blades.

Was going to start hunting for the Family Jewel, but wound up doing the side quest with the uplifted Jabbers and the uplifted Saurians instead.

Iron Bear won the three-way dance at the Terradome. As expected.

I am now 0-2 against the Hog of Fervor.   It may be another seven day interval before I try again.   That way, I can ensure that my console stays in once piece rather than several.

Picked up a Transformer shield on my way to go fight Killavolt in TVMH.  Turned that fight from annoying to let me stand perfectly still and shoot him in the face over and over with my Cowboy Bekah till he's dead.

Finally got my first legendary rocket launcher yesterday.  

Guns in this game have been weird for me.  In Borderlands I'm usually just somebody that wants full auto elemental guns that shoot really, really fast.  I never worry about accuracy much, and do all my fighting close in.  In BL3, I'm using that semi automatic Bekah at medium/long range 95% of the time.  Jakobs is forever sending me guns in the mail.  I've got decent pistols and SMGs, but I never use em.  The one thing I do need is a decent shotgun.  The only one I've seen so far that I like is the beloved Conference Call.  Unfortunately, mine is about 25 levels too low now.

I am hoping back into this thread (since I stopped reading when I stopped playing on Oct 1 due to spoiler fears) to just agree with the bullshit of bosses going back to full health.

The boss I got in a death loop on was a HUGE issue because I was like "I am gonna go broke AND never beat this fucker". And that was because it was glitched. So I could kinda understand.

But things like Katagawa Ball - that offer you no real way of healing are bullshit
