Hallowed Hollow (spoiler)
So.. Is it just me or are there just two quests here? Kill the great pumpkin and get some candy... was this worth the same I paid for some of the other DLC? It feels thrown-together.. after all, skeletons with rifles? After playing Tiny Tina's DLC this feels really short and half the short time is spent running through the same areas over and over.

Yes, it's short (took me about 2 hours solo @ lvl 61 with Zer0 to do everything), and Gearbox told us it was going to be shorter than the previous DLC. That's why it's only $3.00 instead of the $10.00 for the previous ones. But, even so, there are still 3 bosses, and one of them is a raid boss after you kill it a few times (the Jacque gets more difficult with every fight).

You didn't pay $3.00 for any of the other DLC if you bought them full-price. And, if you got the others on sale, then compare the sale price. I'm sure this DLC will be on sale for $1.50 soon enough.

However, as to whether it was worth it or not, why are you asking us? Only you know that answer.

The skeletons with rifles are dead marauders, so that makes sense to me.

Virtually all of the zones in BL2 are done over and over. This isn't new. Finish the main quest in a zone, and then you get a new one (or more) to go through the entire zone again. That's one of the ways they get replayability. "The Dust" zone is an excellent example of that.

*facepalm*

The reason you can't answer my question.... is that it was rhethorical.

And I see no raid boss or even a quest to get to a raid boss. Please explain that part if you wouldn't mind. I ran through it on OP8 so I'm sure I would have noticed a raid boss. Everything went down in about .5 seconds.

Actually, very few of the zones in the main game are ones you have to run through over and over. That's what the fast-travel is for. Unless, of course, you're doing side missions. That's your choice though. But the main missions don't take you on milk runs through the same area over and over to get this, then come back and get something else, then come back and turn on something, then go shoot something then go back and turn on a pipe.

The point was that it's obviously filler... and for only having two quests, having FILLER is just a slap in the face. They could have done more with this.

But the point of my posting was to see if I was missing something. Thanks for the response.

Agree with Bacon. Not really worth $3 to me. I wouldn't have minded it being short if it didn't seem so thrown together. I didn't know there was a raid boss, but I looked it up and Migz seems to be correct.

Did you spawn Clark?

And the King Pumpkin evolves each time you spawn it, every time is more hard to beat.
Bacon Overlord Oct 23, 2013 @ 1:04pm 
I talked to TK for both the quests. Beyond that, I had no interaction with anyone else as I couldn't find anyone else. As far as re-spawning the pumpkin king, how does one do this? TK has nothing further to talk about.

Save and quit, go back to his yard and open the pipe.

Clark spawns with a clever system of easter eggs all around the map.
Bacon Overlord Oct 23, 2013 @ 1:08pm 
So clever, in fact, that it was wasted content considering I didn't see it.

Raid bosses dont get stronger each time you beat them. They become a Raid boss after you beat them once and turn their mission in, then they get the raid boss upgrade.

I have a screen shot if Clark lol.

But the DLC is really really short. I expected something in the 2 hours range not 30 minutes while fooling around. I also saw all the TV spoofs.

well it does say part 1 for its description so perhaps this is just to get us used to the area...also it does seam short but...then again its size makes me wonder what else it has we dont know about....like for example...is htis going to have a few more goodies as we get closer to halloween.....but maybe i am just over thinking things....

$3 for a hours fun is ok - and I can play it over again for the same $3 with my crew.

Plus I got some new guns -

Yes, as was explained to you by some other folks, you missed the Raid Boss.

The second quest TK Baha gives you is a sidequest. So, yes, it fits in exactly with the multitude of other zones which do that... such as "The Dust" which I mentioned earlier.

Thank you for proving my point then since it's even shorter than I gave it credit for.
