      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

How many tries did it take you to get The Bee Shield? Borderlands 2

23 posts in this topic

Finished 2nd playthrough True Vault Hunter mode, me and my boyfriend are level 50. We have tried few times getting the Bee Shield from the Hunter Helquist and still have not looted the Bee Shield. How many tries did it take you? Any tricks?

I honestly got a couple of them without trying too much. I gave one to my friend. But weren't they going to nerf the fuck out of the bee/conference call combo anyway?

I can't see how to beat the level 52 bosses without using a specific set of equipment (or four players, which we don't have). Unfortunately, my level 50 is an assassin, who absolutely sucks. He's good for sniping and that's about it.

Take a Mechromancer in, that's like having 3 people on your side.

I love being Maya, she has awesome powers plus I have her at level 50 and I don't want to start over.

The problem with Maya is that her abilities alone wont get you through some of the super tough bosses out there. It's like my Zer0 who was a sniper extraordinaire (with all legendary equipment too). Raped through all enemies but super bosses. When I got to them, he was fucking useless. Maya is the same way. Even with the bee/conference call combo, it's best to use that with other classes.

I have two different characters a gunzerker and a Mechormancer. All classes are fun and educational to use. :sun:

I would love to be a different class... but I'm not about to start from level one again.

Yeah same here. I saw a gunzerker tear down all the DLC super bosses by himself (and they're much much much much much tougher than Terramorphus). I struggle to just stay alive during the fight, let alone actually worry about damaging the dude. Really makes me wish they would re-balance the classes.

Just play in Triage's game where she's a high level stand around while she kills stuff and your new character will level up pretty quickly. :P

Well I haven't tried farming for it, but random loot is random. It's the biggest scourge in loot games as you can have great luck with random number generators or you can never get what you want. That 3% chance it has to drop you will likely never get. The good thing is Hunter Helquest respawns pretty well as It would suck to have him on a week reset time.

I'm going to be starting the game this week. What is better, the Commando or Gunzerker? I hear the Gunzerker actually kind of sucks until later in the game, and then takes off. I was thinking of going Commando. Good choice or go Gunzerker?

Depends on how you want to play. If you're okay with beating the game, and beating it on True Vault Hunter mode, you might have more fun with the Commando. But if you know you want to do all the late game stuff, definitely go with Gunzerker.

I've probably killed HH a dozen times. No Bee. Oh well, I don't really like grinding. I do like killing the Bunker because of the loot storm, and it's really not very tough.

That's not something you can farm though, right?

EDIT: Just looked it up, and it would seem you can... I guess I know what we'll be doing tonight! :D

Both times I went for a Bee I had 1 in an hour tops. Conference Call was another matter entirely...12+ hours of killing the Warrior for that. Once the patch hits consoles though that combo will be a shadow of it's former self along with the Bee/Babymaker or any generally good Beediore combo.

Never got the Bee shield, but I managed to get Black Hole from that guy Moxxi wants you to kill. Getting to him was a bitch at lvl 50 since I'm mainly a melee assassin, so farming was a pain. But nothing pissed me off more than killing him for a fucking level 45 shield that was worse than my own. :|
