Legendary loot midgets question
so like, ive been farming loot midgets for a while now, on UVHM and i kill them faster then usual, i dont get legendaries, only relics, is it true if you kill them slower, they have a better chance to drop a legendary?

It is totally random, there is no connection between time it takes to kill them and rarity of loot. Relics just drop more often than legendary weapons/items. I did a lot of runs in Wildlife, by my experience it's about 30 midgets for one orange and about 60 for cyan(pearlscent). Sometimes I kill them over 50 and don't get any orange, sometimes 5 oranges from 12 midgets. Luck and patience, that's what matters here. ;D

the chance of getting a legendary should not be altered depending on how chalenging you find them. that said the more you kill them the lower the chance of a legendary or pearl in theory

I REALLY need to find some new legendaries, or pearls. I'm at level 52, and just recently got back into this game afrer beating it several months ago. All I have are legendaries but, they were found before I downloaded the UVHM. They're greast weapons but, they're running out of steam, so to speak. Enemies are getting too hard to kill. I'm totally stuck at the point where you're in the Highlands, trying to warp out to where Sanctuary is floating. Just can't beat that ♥♥♥♥ kicking you get trying to get the teleporter to work, to beam out to Sanctuary.

Any good place to farm for legendaries early-ish in the game?

I swear I had around a dozen legendaries in ~2 hours. In TVHM, that is. Most of them were grenade mods, but I got a lvl 50 Rapid Infinity, Pitchfork, Volcano and several Deliverances.

In UVHM I got 90% relics. I was bathing in Blahblah of the Ancients. After a lot of tries I got an Avenger smg pearlescent. The last thing I got after a bazillion tries was a Stalker pearlescent pistol which, of course, was only lvl 59.
Instant rage quit.
Its all just luck but sometimes it feels like the game is deliberately trolling you.

i dont think it has much to do with it, but i killed them as fast as possible and they were always dropping either a legendary or a pearl or an etech relic for me. never left me empty handed. as soon as i let them drop their ammo and whatnot while walking they wouldnt drop ♥♥♥♥.

The diffrence in levels between enemies and your weapons is a lot more drastic in UVHM. I found that my level 50 gear because essentually useless once I started facing enemies around 54 and above. You just need to constantly swap out lower lever guns for higher ones. However I suggest farming (Or asking a friend) for a Slagga SMG. No words can describe how useful it is in UVHM.

start uvhm with a lvl50 chulain it will get you to sanctuary whatever char you play

If you can play through Tiny Tina's DLC in TVHM, you can farm sorcerers until you get the Magic Missile grenade mod. Bring that and a Bee shield (easily farmed from Treants in the Forest) to UVHM, and you'll be fine.

I can't overstate how important it is to have effective slag in UVHM, and the Magic Missile is pretty great for slagging.

What he said. Also true, lol. That slag/shock combo is pretty dam cool.

I'll keep an eye out for the Chulain. Pretty much comes down to luck though. Kinda pissed that I'm almost feeling like a noob again, even after beating the main game. Just scrounging for any decent weapons. Luckily my turret is almost maxxed out, and it's holding down the slag responsibilities right now.

Completely agree that you gotta slag pretty much everything in UVHM. I've had a few people tell me that the pearls kinda suck, and to just stick with legends at the appropriate level. Any truth to that?

I know I've bought a couple weapons from the black market dealer in Oasis and, those definitely suck. Don't know why Gearbox threw them in like they were some special ♥♥♥♥, or something. They're not.

I farmed the midgets in wildlife preserve and got 4 legendaries and 1 pearlescent in a single day. honestly thats your best shot for getting easy lendaries and pearls. better than farming bosses for like 4 hours straight.

The only pearlescent I've ever used is the Butcher and oh my GOD is that my favourite weapon ever. Just tears enemies up.

Why use Chulainn when it's so easy to farm Slagga once you've done the Clan War and sided with the Zafords? Jimbo spawns right at the door to Lynchwood, so kill/quit/restart until he drops the Slagga. The Chulainn slags YOU just by holding it, so it's a lot less dangerous to use Slagga as well.
